I admit, initially it did feel a bit depressing, but now I actually look forward to going to the movies alone.
Just got home after watching the second installment of “Pirates of the Carribean – Dead Man’s Chest”. Before the movie, bought more new books and one audiobook. Went home right after, but not before splurging on a mixed kebab for a late lunch along with an iced crush cappucino (I drink too much of this stuff, even if it’s raining outside).
A bit tired after all that, and the movie lasted about 2 1/2 hours. Still it was highly enjoyable and I thought this one had a bit more “meat”, setting the stage for the third installment quite nicely.
I don’t care what others say, this movie was a blast and a continuous shot of adrenaline from start to finish. Forget all that talk about this being all about Cruise, even if that’s true.. so what. I enjoyed it thoroughly and even kinda forgot I was alone, coz I was muttering to myself when the suspense got too much to bear.
I have to say, this is a brand new experience for me. But for a first time experience, I’d say this experiment was a success :) Will definitely do this again, most probably to catch Davinci Code and X-Men3.
BTW, JJ Abrams rock! MI3 is superb in my book. If you’re a fan of the MI series (or of Alias for that matter!), I say go catch this movie. Maximally awesome, no matter what those critics say.
I want to go see Syriana, and gal pal is unavailable. Sucks a bit, but it’s more unfortunate really. I don’t feel like asking anyone else to come with me. Not that I have any other agenda I’d rather pursue on my own. Maybe I just need to be by myself, be one amongst many, lose myself in the crowd and revel in my anonymity.
My gal pal’s been too busy and our schedules are way off. I’ve missed a few good movies b’coz of that, which is such a crying shame. Nways, I don’t think I’ll have a hard time completing this goal, unless of course I can’t even make time for myself. I’ve already gone to a classical concert by myself and that was loads of fun. Maybe some time this month, we’ll see..
