Happy Birthday, Apollo Ono!

Just came back from opening night of "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull." Ok, I know it got poor reviews, and I know I am goo-goo for Harrison Ford, but that was a fun movie. :)

Maybe it's my mood, the dreary weather that I love, or the cute guy that I thought was avoiding me who smiled at me in the parking lot as he drove to the gym and I left Little Caesar 's with a box of cheesy bread that I had no intention of sharing--at any extent, something that's been on my mind lately is how much I hate the term "boyfriend." It seem so puerile, so high school.

At this point, you're wondering what this has to do with Indian Jones. It would be this: I went to the movie expecting to be wooed only by the George Lucas/Steven Spielberg combo, Harrison Ford, and Shia LeBeouf (anyone else see the trailer for "Eagle Eye"? My little Even Stephen's boy has grown up!). I didn't want the pressure of going on a date to see Indy. I wanted to sit back and enjoy it without thinking about anyone, without an attachment to anything but the popcorn tub. I wanted to enjoy it with my friends, and all I can say is that it worked.

Don't go into with with expectations other than to be entertained by a slightly older but still awesome Indy--he may be middle-aged, but he can still use that whip! And with Georgy's writing, you can't expect fantastic dialog : just lean back, enjoy the popcorn, and a little Indiana. Expect some old friends, but have fun with the new ones. You've been waiting for 20 years, remember?

    The name of your blog reminds me of "Dan in Real Life." Have you seen it yet? :)

  2. No, but I really want to! :) It looks pretty funny--did you like it?

    Oh, allow me to add my recommendation - Dan in Real Life is GREAT!!! I thought it was very different, but I LOVED it. Waiting for it to get a little cheaper again (like the Walmart day-of-release price) before purchasing...

    Wow...I LOVED it. And that's rare these days. There is one innuendo-ridden conversation in it, and one song I hated, but the rest was purely delightful. :)

  5. I'm going to see Iron Man again tonight, but I definitely know what I'm doing tomorrow night, now!! :) thanks for the suggestion! I kinda wanted to see it, but now I definitely will!!
