I try to always have one girly movie from netflix in the house. Sometimes they're mindless goodness like 27 Dresses. Lately I've been taking netflix's suggestions. They say because I liked the original Parent Trap, that I would enjoy watching "The Courtship of Eddie's Father," a movie that made me realize that a very young Ronnie Howard was not such a great actor but still very cute. The plot was also surprisingly complex - I always expect movies from that era to be pretty predictable. This one was, but only after going through a few plot twists. I have also been enjoying the "Anne of Green Gables" series thanks to Netflix.
This past Thursday, Nate and I went to the Landmark Century theater, which shows mostly independent and foreign films. We used to go all the time, when we lived a little closer to it. We decided to go see "Man on Wire," a movie about the french tight-rope walker who walked between the tops of the 2 towers of the World Trade Center. It was a good way to spend a rainy afternoon. A lot of the movie was centered around the act of breaking in to the WTC in order to get to the roof and set up for the stunt, which is a very uncomfortable subject for all Americans at this point. The guy was definitely a little crazy, but that is unfortunately the mark of most great artists.
Up next on the queue: Anne of Green Gables, the Continuing Story,
Coal Miner's Daughter
It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, disc one.
