On Wednesday my awesomeness got me into an advance screening of Love and Other Drugs.
(Actually, that’s pure lies. PhotoMan’s awesomeness got the tickets, and I shamelessly tagged along.) It comes out November 24, and it’s really good! I like watching Jake Gyllenhaal and Anne Hathaway, and the story isn’t too annoying-romatic-comedy. I suggest you go see it.
The film was weird (as was the book). There was a sad lack of boa constrictor and Sedar, but other than that they did a pretty good job of adapting the story to film format. Plus, LLC supplied the most amazing Apple Oat Bars and Chocolate Cookies for our movie-munching enjoyment.
It’s about bank robbers in Charlestown, a place that until Saturday I thought was quaint and historic, but apparently is way more gritty than I ever imagined! Ben Affleck plays a good thug, Rebecca Hall (she’s also in Vicky Christina Barcelona) plays the yuppie female lead, and it turns out Blake Lively makes a great trashy drug addict. It’s been in theaters a while, have you seen it? What did you think?
Saturday night PhotoMan came over for cake and a movie. We watched Whip It, a roller-derby film directed by Drew Barrymore and staring Ellen Page. This movie did poorly in theaters, but it's so good! Kind of ridiculous, but really fun and a good story.
Recently I’ve been spending a lot of time thinking about what I’m doing with my life, and I’m wondering if maybe roller-derby is my calling? I can think of numerous reasons why I’d be great at it – a history of ski racing, endurance from running, relatively unbreakable bones, torrential rage, etc. Plus I could come up with an awesome roller-derby name – I’m thinking Mollie Mayhem, Mollie-Tov Cocktail, Moe Ya-Down – the possibilities are endless, find yours here!
Anywho, hope you had a good weekend too!
