I agree with Sherri’s post earlier this week that the most important thing about the Oscars (to me, anyway) is what everyone will wear. Still, there are movies up for awards and I guess I should give them a bit of attention in between oogling the gowns. Nine films are nominated for Best Picture. I’ve only seen one of them–The Help. So–that gets my vote. And frees me up to get back to the gowns
I live in a small town, which, for a small town, has a really nice movie theatre. It has 8 screens, good food, and a concierge level where you can get drinks. Pretty swanky. BUT–apparently movies don’t stay in this theatre for very long. Case in point–on December 27th the DH and I headed there to see the movie New Year’s Eve. And it was no longer playing. WHAT?!? It wasn’t even New Year’s Eve yet and it was gone from our swanky theatre. So now I guess we’ll watch it when it comes out on DVD–probably in July. Yippee.
There’s a new movie opening today–One For the Money, based on the first Stephanie Plum book by Janet Evanovich. I’ve seen the trailer and the commercials. Katherine Heigl plays Stephanie, Debbie Reynolds is Grandma Mazur, I’ve never heard of the dude playing Joe Morelli, and the oh-so-hot Daniel Sunjata from the show Rescue Me is Ranger. It looks fun and I’d like to see this flick to see how the book translated to the screen.
On Saturday the DH and I are attending our neighborhood’s Jeans and Beans country/Western party. There’s a chili cook-off (the DH is entering), a dessert cook-off (I’m entering) as well as line dancing (led by me and the DH) and square dancing. Yee-haw! Do-si-do your partner then promenade her home!
On Sunday we’ll rest. Or maybe try to catch one of the other nine films up for the Oscar. Or yeah, maybe we’ll rest
What are y’all doing this weekend? Share your thoughts on some the Oscar films you’ve seen (or are you like me and have only seen one?). Are you planning to see One For the Money? Did anyone see New Year’s Eve–or did it leave your local theatre before the ball dropped?
