It's been five and a half years since I've set foot in a movie theater, kittens. The last time I went to the cinema was New Year's Day 2004, and I saw Meet the Fockers with a few friends.
Why haven't I been to the movies in so long? Well, a lot of it has to do with movie etiquette. I always end up, no matter where I am in the theater, sitting amongst people who are gabbing, texting, or taking pictures with their cell phones, or couples who are sucking face throughout the entire film. I don't wish to go to see a movie when those around me are being downright rude and aren't paying attention to what's on the screen.
That, and the price of a movie ticket has gone up ridiculously. Not to mention, there haven't been that many movies which have piqued my interest enough for me to go to the theater as opposed to waiting for the DVD to come out.
That having been said, there are three movies coming out this summer that I really do want to see.
The first one is called Post Grad. It stars Alexis Bledel as a freshly graduated college student searching for a job. The timing of this release couldn't be more appropriate, given the state of the job market.
But I don't wanna see it just for the former Ms. Rory Gilmore. Carol Burnett plays the kooky grandmother, and Demetri Martin is in it too!
The next movie I wish to see is The Time Traveler's Wife, starring Rachel McAdams. I have the book, and I have yet to read it. This will be a part of my Take a Chance Challenge--and I'll reveal details about that later.
The last movie I want to see is the one that I'm anticipating the most. It's called Julie and Julia and it stars two of my favorite actresses, Amy Adams and Meryl Streep. It's based on the book by Julie Powell, which I read a couple of years ago. I absolutely loved the book, and judging the trailer, I don't think I'm gonna be disappointed with this one!
And what movies do you wish to see, kittens?
