Last night husband took me to the drive in, and after feeling pretty crappy most of the week and being stuck in the house, it was nice to get out without having to get out of the car (wow, could that sound lazier?). I love the drive in, have I told you that before? $5 for 2 movies. We saw Red and Easy A. I expected Red to be terrible and Easy A to be better, even though the director for the latter really annoyed me in this extended trailer I saw. He claims that everyone was assigned The Scarlet Letter in high school, but no one actually read it. Um, yes, I did, thank you very much.
Anyway, Red was actually better than Easy A, because it MOVED. The plot was presented, and the actors went with it without dilly dallying. I'm no big fan of action movies, but Bruce Willis is kind of funny and John Malkovich is insane, so that's fun. Easy A could have been a lot less zzzzzz if they had left out the myriad of 80's movie references and constant product placement. And I don't know about the rest of you, but in my day, when a girl slept with one guy in high school, she wasn't deemed a slut. And why weren't the other "sluts" at this school defending the main character? And why was she using incredibly big words that few adults I know even use? I'm so over these pretentious teenagers getting into situations they can't handle. Jeez, I sound like Clint Eastwood. GET OFF MY LAWN!
I think today I'm going to lounge around and watch Marie Antoinette. Or maybe Garfield's Halloween. But right now? Time for pancakes and bacon! Have a lovely weekend all!
