So I want to put a movie on and unwind from my day (weekend) in order to eventually fall asleep. What to put on should be an easy decision, right? WRONG!
I can't put on anything scary: Donnie Darko (damn Rabbit!), Rosemary's Baby, Land of the Dead, etc.
Nothing that requires me to pay a lot of attention: Snatch, 12 Monkeys, Life Aquatic (not that it's confusing but because it's one of those "finer details" movies), etc.
I don't want to put a TV show on because then I'm afraid I'll be up for the entire disc: Friends, My So-Called Life (not to mention the flashbacks to "I Love Jordan Catalano!"*), Alias, etc.
No movies I still haven't watched because 1) I'd have to pay attention and 2) It could be scary!: Gigli (yes, I own this. I bought it for $5 to see how bad it is and still haven't watched it), Wasabi (subtitles, way too much attention required), Tigerland, etc.
Nothing that is depressing or has a sad ending: Edward Scissorhands, Romeo and Juliet, The English Patient, etc.
Nothing that requires the remote in order to start the movie (battery is dead;): Dirty Dancing is the only one so far that won't start just by pushing *play* on the actual DVD player.
So that usually leaves me considering the following:
the Bourne movies
Legally Blonde (but every time I forget I can't find the disc)
Yeah, but do I really want to watch movies with the following? Well, the answer is "YES!" but then I'm like, "Bust."
Chad Michael Murray (althogh he's ugly in Freaky Friday)
Chad Michael Murray (hott in CS)
Matt Damon spy
BRAD FUCKING PITT (ummmm, slight obsession and pardon the profanity)
So like 30 minutes later, what do I have on?
It's going to get to the point of me needing an intervention. Someone is going to have to come and take away my GG DVDs.**
OH, and I forgot to mention that 9 times out of 10, after I finally decide on a movie to put on, I either end up turning it off five minutes later or reading with it just in the background. It's like I don't learn;)
*flashback? Sure, right. Flashback. Not present.
**Just kidding! Don't really do that. I'm fine. I have no problem. None.
