The Movies

I just came out of the movie "500 Days of Summer" which was pretty cute but not very original. Worth seeing? Sure. But it is really just a John Cusack movie without John Cusack in it. I do love Zooey Deschanel, so that made up for part of it.

Sometimes I come out of a movie (usually one with an especially good soundtrack) and just want to float around in it for a while. You know, like, live in the movie for a few days, or at least a few hours. Not because it is an especially good movie necessarily, but because it is transportation to a different universe for a while. A universe that has the comfort and security of a beginning, and middle and an end which someone has really thought about. Sometimes life just seems like a series of days. Good days often enough, but there's no plotline. One yearns for plotline.
