Okay, so it's that time to figure out something to do for the weekend. Hang out with your friends (at the movies). Hang out with your family (at the movies). Hang out with your girlfriend or boyfriend (at the movies). Oh heeeey, maybe you can check out a new movie this weekend.
There are a few choices such as What's Your Number, a movie inspired by the chick lit 20 Times a Lady. It's a comedy about a woman on the quest to revisit her past lovers and discover which of them was the "one who got away".
You could take your comedy with cancer. That's pretty much what the writer of 50/50 did. It depicts the humorous yet "heartfelt" way this young man, his friends, and family dealt with something that has a tendency to pull out the melodramatic in many of us. And the writer should know since he based it on his true life experience.
If comedy doesn't suit your mood, you could always fill your mind with something suspenseful, like Dream House. Don't let the title fool you. This is one of those things where you learn that if something is too good to be true, it probably comes with dire consequences, like discovering you live in a home where people were brutally murdered....or do you???
As a personal note, this one screams "scary" to me and me and scary are not good friends so I'll leave this movie to braver souls.
But inspiration may be your desired course of action. That's where Courageous comes into play. Four cops, faith in God and the trials they endure in work and with their family. This one seems like it may have a more family-friendly tone to it.
As a personal note, the movie trailer touched my heart but that was not a sniffle and a tear. That was a - erm - uh - an allergy. Yeah, allergy.
Anything of interest? Anything catch your eye? Do you think you could be as brave as the writer of 50/50 and take your most painful tragedy and give it a humorous spin so you can share it with the world?
