You can try to understand, you can sympathize, but until you feel that loss… My dad died when I was nine. George, I’m really sorry you had to join the club
George: I…I don’t know how to…exist in a world where my dad doesn’t
Christina: Yeah that never really changes
I finally saw Iron Man 2 and it was just as awesome as the first movie. Do not expect it to win any Academy Awards, but for a comic book movie and a sequel, it was completely entertaining and just what I needed right now. I do love Robert Downey Jr and I cannot wait for The Avengers movie, especially now that it also involves Joss Whedon :o)
Other summer movies I am looking forward to are MacGruber, The A-Team and Toy Story 3. I will see Sex and the City 2 and The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, but am not expecting anything spectacular, considering the previous films were not that good. I also might see Dinner for Schmucks, The Switch and Eat, Pray, Love depending on the reviews.
I still have not watched Rachel Getting Married. This time it is mostly because there have just been other things that I have wanted to watch more. I have had the disc from Netflix since January, so I should probably get on that. Most of my TV shows have ended this week, so I should have lot of free time coming soon. I promise I will watch it and get back to you!
With Cool Hand Luke, it took me a little while to get into the movie, because it is very slow moving. However, after adjusting to the meandering nature, I really enjoyed it and totally understand why it is considered such a classic. I also now understand the "shake that bush" reference from A Perfect Getaway :o)
I am still watching Deadwood and am in the middle of season two. It is still awesome and I cannot wait to see what happens, but I do not think I would have watched it when it was on TV. I just do not think I would have appreciated it as much I do right now. So I guess it is good that I did not try to watch it then because I am loving it now.
In current TV news, I loved the finales of Private Practice (even though it made me sob), The Vampire Diaries, Parenthood, NCIS: Los Angeles and Brothers & Sisters. The Good Wife and Grey's Anatomy were phenomenal. How I Met Your Mother was funny, but kind of lame in terms of a finale. NCIS was mostly confusing and I thought could have been better considering the full season build-up, but is always good. And I could care less about the series finales of Lost or 24, as I did not watch either show. This summer I am looking forward to new seasons of Mad Men, Dark Blue and White Collar.
Since I was in Montauk for my brother's wedding this past weekend (I have a sister now, yay!) I did not see MacGruber opening weekend, like I had hoped, but it is on my to-do list for the next week.
