We seem to be extremely awesome at beating our last letdown, so Biggest Letdown of 2007 is revised on a weekly basis.
We are such a happening bunch.
Anyhoo, J and I did catch quite a few movies and I swear it felt almost like a cinema crawl. The Cathay (because it's new), GV Vivocity (because there's lots of cafes and restaurants) and GV Plaza (because it's near). It was good because we rarely have the opportunity to just grab a large Coke, some popcorn and catch a movie. It was nice to do something couple-y after such a long time.
Shooter was cool. It got predictable (I saw the betrayal bit coming) but it sure made me feel like taking shooting lessons. How cool would it be to be a superb marksman!? I can shoot
[Probably not the best thing to say in light of recent senseless killings. I know. I apologize for being angry sometimes.]
And I think J watched his first Asian movie of his life last weekend.
-- 200 Pounds Beauty
Thanks to Colin who was soooo "enthusiastic" about the movie, J and I didn't have much a choice NOT watching the movie because Colin booked us the tickets WHILE talking to us at Starbucks. Seriously we didn't have a chance in hell.
Us: So how's you, Col?
Colin: I'm good. Hey, you guys should watch '200 Pounds Beauty'! It is funny and you guys don't seem to have any plans for today.
Us: (just looked at each other, wondering he meant that we have no life.)
Colin: Just booked you guys tickets to the movie at 5pm today. Remember to bring the confirmation code!
The movie was over 60% cheese. Some bits, shots and dialogue were sooooo cliche that I was rolling my eyes while J looked on in amusement. We felt sorry for the protagonist because people actually made fun of the fat chick. I was actually disappointed (and ashamed) when people actually laughed when she was ridiculed.
Are we still in high school, people!? Stop picking on overweight people. You don't see someone else picking on your "ecletic sense of fashion", do you?
-- Mismatched knee-length socks with short shorts. Very "hip".
Watched 300 again. Still the bloodiest most-deaths-per-scene movie I have ever seen.
-- Why is he so angry? Take a Valium, duuuuuude.
Do Spartans take a shower? They do seem a little grimey in the movie.
There are still so many movies I want to watch. Wild Hogs, Spidey 3, Harry Potter 4, The Simpsons Movie (Reverend Lovejoy!) and so many more. I will most probably cut back on expenses so that come July, I will channel all the money towards the cinema and popcorn industries.
I am sooooo going blind from watching that many movies.
Can't wait though!
