I relish moments like this. A quiet house. HUbby and the kids far deep in dreamland. Having too much of my caffine fix, sleep evades me. Good. Now, I have the excuse of inviting my old friend in to keep me company–my trusty dvd player.
I realize I have some really good movies on hand but never really saw them because of, you know, stuff–work, housekeeping, homework, etc. Ah…tonight is my chance. I have the dvd all to myself. What a perfect time to be alone.
First on my list is Kate Winslet’s The Reader. I heard so much about this film. I got my curiosity satisfied and more. I commend her portrayal. Marvelous performance, really fitting of an Oscar. Based on the novel written by German law professor Bernard Shlink, I found the story to be haunting. Bravo!
The next was Isla Fischer’s Confessions of a Shopaholic. I haven’t finished the book, nor have I read the other sequels, but I did enjoy its movie version. I really love the clothes, shoes and bags. Kinda reminded me of my retail therapy….hahahaha!
The last but not the least for my movie night, I had Bride Wars. I don’t know why I’d pick this film, maybe because I love both actresses. Truth is, I was a bit shortchanged with it. I fell in love with Anne Hathaway’s look, though.
My eyes really sting now. After three movies, I think Im done for the day. Gotta catch some shut eye and prepare for two more workdays before the holidays.
OMG!? I guess I have to stuck up with some more movies…
