It was another hot one here today,
I'm still in my movie mode. Last night I watched For Pete's Sake, another movie with Barbara Streisand from 1974. My favorite parts of movies from this time period?? The fashion and the technology! Phone booths! Cash registers where you key in the price!! HUGE computers with punch cards!!! Too funny. This movie had its moments, but it wasnt as funny as I was expecting. I think if I saw it during the time period I would have liked it better.
Later that night I watched The Double, a spy thriller with Richard Gere (yum!) and Topher Grace (he's actually aging quite well but I still think of him as Eric Forman from That 70's Show). THIS was REALLY good! You found out one twist early on, but there was another twist toward the end that I didnt see coming. If you like spy thrillers, give this one a try.
This morning I watched an old favorite, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels. Mother? Not Mother???
As you can tell, I love my movies!! I've gotten out of them for awhile, waiting for movies to come to Netflix to watch at home, but there is one out now that I want to see in the theatre. Much Ado About Nothing. This will have to be a girl's night movie since there is no way the IO would sit thru this. If we were just married or dating, absolutely, but after 27 years, it's a girl's night movie, NOT a date night movie. It's only playing in one theatre locally, an old fashioned theatre that holds 250 ppl (remember those?!?!) and only plays indie films. I've never been before and am looking forward to going for the experience.
While watching all of these movies, I've been trying to knit on some of my projects. I've made some progress on my kitty blanket.
And one last pic of Hemi.
So what have you been up to this fine Saturday? Seen any good movies lately? Feel free to add any to my list.
