Sparing my husband from a couple chic flicsPosted in Movies on Saturday, February 20th, 2010
I’m taking this time while my husband is away to catch up on some serious chic flicks. I thought they’d both be awful, but I was pleasantly surprised with one…the other was an obvious dud.
I began my day alone with some serious cleaning (so that when I started my serious movie watching, I wouldn’t feel guilty!), then when the dream of a Felicity marathon was crushed, I rented a couple movies my husband wouldn’t mind skipping. I started with The Time Traveler’s Wife. I wish this movie would have given some tips on how to go back in time and warn myself against renting this movie. It was kind of just weird, some thoughts of child molestation had to be ignored, and was all over the place. The only plus was that it was well made. I would not recommend this movie and would rather suggest my second watch.
I continued with Love Happens. I really thought that there’d be no chemistry and I’d just be annoyed by Jennifer, but neither happened. I enjoyed this one from the beginning and was actually laughing, crying, and happy throughout. It was just a well done, cute movie that was never offensive and not your traditional romance.
I’m not sure what’s on the docket next, but I have my sights set on Dear John. Any recommendations?
