Have you seen any good movies lately? They don’t have to be in the theatre. Maybe you saw it on DVD or TV.
It’s been a while since I was really excited to go see a movie. The last one I saw in the theatre was The Dark Knight Rises…and I fell asleep several times to the point where I couldn’t tell you even the basic plot!
Haha, no, it wasn’t boring at all, but my friends and I went to see the latest show after going out for dinner and drinks. Plus I had a tiring day at work, and the previous night, I went to bed wayyyy past the witching hour. (I should have bags under my eyes that go down to my knees…Pretty sight.)
I only remember pieces of it here and there. (For part of it, I literally held my eyes open with my fingers because I was so upset that I was missing an epic movie. My antics were like something out of a Mr. Bean episode! However, I failed and nodded off several times. Nature won.)
Okay, so aside from wanting to stay awake through the entire The Dark Knight Rises, I really want to see Wreck-It Ralph, a Disney animation feature film!
Click on the still-shot below to watch the Wreck-It Ralph movie trailer:
I don’t know anyone who has seen it yet (it just came out on Friday), but from the trailer, it looks like it’s going to be one of those feel-good movies along the lines of Toy Story or Wall-E. It looks like there’s going to be a generous sprinkling of humour throughout with positive, self-affirming messages, which makes it good for people of all ages.
From what I gather in the Wreck-It Ralph movie trailer, it’s about Ralph (a ‘bad guy’ in a video game) who is sick and tired of being the bad guy. He wants to be the good guy for once, so he sneaks into different video games and eventually learns what it means to be a hero.
Will he go back to his original game and realize that he’s still the same good guy, even though he plays a ‘bad guy’? Or, will he reinvent a new game?
His journey of self discovery is something that really interests me.
All I know is that it looks like it’s going to be a movie that you’ll want to watch over and over, by yourself, with friends, with children, with the elderly, with your cat, Muffin…just anyone. And I hope that I’m right about my presumptions.
I plan to see it soon. Even if none of my friends want to see it, heck, I want to see it badly enough that I’ll go to the theatre by myself and see it if they don’t want to go!
Have you ever watched a movie solo in the theatre? Are you going to see Wreck-It Ralph? What movies have you seen or want to see?
