Let me start off this week by saying that I just read that Patrick Swayze passed away today. I don't know this news saddens me so much, but it does. Maybe it's because his movie "Dirty Dancing" had such a strong impact on my early teen years. Maybe it's because he just seemed like a regular guy who fell into a movie star role. Whatever the case, I hate that he's gone now, especially considering the disease that robbed him of a long life. RIP Johnny Castle. You'll be missed.
Well gang, it was a lean week. Between being sick, being without power for half a day, & having LOTS of work to do, there wasn't much time for anything else. Hubby & I managed to see 1 movie last night and here's my assessment.
Yes Man - Ok, let me begin by saying that I'm not a Jim Carrey fan. I think he tries way too hard to be funny. And this movie was no exception. The redeeming qualities of this flick include an adorable performance by Zooey Deschanel and a decent amount of screen time from the delicious Bradley Cooper. Past that, this one just didn't do that much for me.
Now, here's where you all can help me with some upcoming entertainment choices. I'm thinking of checking out something in theaters at some point this week. Which one would be your choice?
All About Steve
Julie & Julia
The September Issue (this one I would actually have to travel to Atlanta to see because the hick town movie theaters here rarely ever show scarcely heard of independent films. Sigh.)
I did manage to make progress on one of the books that I've been reading for, ahem, 6 weeks. Sad thing is that I'm a fast reader. That should tell you how hard it is to get a couple of hours of uninterrupted quiet time around here! I'm REALLY hoping to finish at least 1 of the books this week. Until next Tuesday...
