I have this thing for watching movies.

Maybe I shouldn't love it so much.
Maybe I should stop watchin' them.

But I don't think I could ever bring myself to let them go.

Granted, I'm not talking about the filthy display on
 a silver screen
that sometimes appears to be called a movie.

That's just down right sad
when people fill their beautiful, delicate minds
with garbage that is disintegrating their knowledge base.
Please prevent that.

I'm talkin' about the good stuff.

The ones that change thought, action, and paths.

Ones that make your cry because they make you
feel somethin'.

I get excited when I curl up in a blanket on the couch,
or am totally guilty of sneaking in 2 pints of icecream,
sunny D's, saltines, and chocolates in my oversized purse
to the movie theater.

My heart does this whole....
"YEEEESSSSSSS. Thank you for treating me 
to an exquisite time!"

{Sorta creepy, but true}

I get giddy over angles,
spot on shots of the eyes,
emotional expression,
and how the lines on the face change
when a character realizes something

One of my all time FAVORITE things
is to get a blankie, the above ^ mentioned purse,
and go to the movies all by myself.

Then I can have any opinion I want.
I can cry like a baby next to a complete stranger
who doesn't even want to think 
about offering a tissue to me 
because they know it will come back completely
obliterated by...well....things related to the color green. :)

Call me crazy.
No wonder I'm one of the oddest crayons in the box.

I understand obsessing over movies and
doing nothing else with your life at all is
not such a good thing.

I completely agree.

But I'm talking about when it's good
for the time being = this post.

I can honestly say that my life
has been changed by movies.
{the good ones ;)}

Of course we all know Ally isn't Ally
without her HP.

I mean, come on.

Yes, I hear all you certain individuals
screaming at your screen right now because
you thought the Harry Potter films
were completely awful in comparison.

But let me ask you this.
You can't possibly be telling the truth if the
scene in the last film where their putting put up 
the shield around Hogwarts
and the sweet awesome suits of armor 
coming down from the ceiling
didn't totally blow your universe 
and make your heart DO something.

My mother hasn't even seen all the films
or read any of the books,
and she had tears in her eyes
during that sequence.

That's what I'm talking about.
You may not know what's going on in a film,
but your mind and heart know when something
spectacular is going on in front of you.

Princess Bride.
Lion King.
Pursuit of Happiness
You've Got Mail
The Brave Little Toaster
Dead Poet's Society
The Help
A Walk to Remember
Beautiful Mind
How To Train Your Dragon
Lord of the Rings
Harry Potter
Ninja Turtles
Wizard of Oz
Gone with the Wind
West Side Story
An Affair to Remember
Ever After
The Karate Kid
Star Wars
The Sandlot
Fiddler On the Roof
Home Alone
Finding Neverland
Singing In The Rain
Indiana Jones
Toy Story
Howl's Moving Castle
Goofy Movie
Muppets in Space

today, all I can think about is
the little thumping in my chest begging me
to take it to a film this weekend.

And I think I'll obey. ;)

It's between-

Women In Black
with Daniel Radcliffe
{I'm not a big thriller movie type of girl, 
but I loved the play-even though I wet my pants}


Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close
with Tom Hanks, Sandra Bullock, and Thomas Horn

I'll let ya know how it goes. :)

Happy weekend!
And let me know if you're going to watch a film this weekend
or have any recommendations.
