Some people go to movies to critique the art of the movie. I go to be entertained. I’m not asking for much. A simple plot, bonus points if it’s clever. Decent acting. And a relatively happy ending. I saw two movies over the weekend.
Stranger Than Fiction
The movie ended; I was sobbing uncontrollably. I loved this movie. Incredibly genius, innovative, creative, touching, heartbreaking, and funny. What more could you ask for?
Just when I thought it couldn’t get worse… it did. I spent the entire movie hunched in my seat, alternating between covering my eyes, covering my ears, and wanting to shout at the characters, “Don’t do that! No. Really. Stop. Noooooooooooooooooooo!”
The movie ended; I was exhausted. Utterly and totally spent. Completely nauseated and wanting to be anywhere but around people.
I really should start reading the previews before the movie. The surprises kill me.
