I have a movie headache. It’s the moviegoing version of an ice cream headache–when you consume too much ice cream too quickly and get a weird sensation in your head.
Today, I didn’t post much because I went to a triple header of movie screenings, and have to go see a fourth one, tonight. It’s too much for one day and makes you feel like you’re wasting valuable hours of your life away–and you are. Or, at least, I was.
I know, I know. I’m lucky to be able to do this as part of my vocation. Most people don’t have this opportunity–to watch movies for free and review them, so why am I whining? Too much of a good thing (or, in this case, a not so good thing) is never good. And I have a movie headache. My head is spinning. One thing I wish Hollywood would do: make movies shorter! They are way too long.
Anyway, of the movies I saw today, so far, I liked “The Namesake“–about an Indian family that comes to America and assimilates–the best. It was a charming, if sad, film (a little long, though). Going to see “300,” later tonight. Did NOT like “The Lookout.” Also saw, “The Hoax.”
Check out my reviews when the movies are released.
