My entire day was filled with running errands but we seemed to fit at least 3 full movies and 2 half movies in between everything. This morning started with catching Donnie Darko in the middle till the end.
Still to this day one of my favorite movies. I went as far as trying to be Donnie Darko for Halloween last year. I ordered the vintage skeleton costume, was ready to buy the grey hoodie... but realized the costume looked pretty silly on me and changed my costume last minute. I have it on DVD and can watch it whenever I want but when I see it on TV I just stop and watch.
We then ran our errands and while waiting for my car maintenance to be done at my parents home (they live near the car dealer) we caught parts of Kill Bill 1 and a little of Kill Bill 2.
This is also one of my favorite movies. I love the mixing of film styles and I love almost everything Tarantino does. Some of the scenes were very beautiful even though most were very graphically violent.
Then when we got home later we watched a movie on the DVR called Defending Your Life
What an interesting concept. When you die to go to Judgement Town. They make everything look like Earth so you feel comfortable. You can eat as much as you want and gain nothing and everything taste amazing every time. You get judged depending on how you lived your life, and they judge you based on a few days to many days. There is only Heaven, no Hell. If you pass your trial you "move forward" (they don't specify). If you don't win, you go back to Earth to try again. I thought that was pretty interesting. The movie was a lil more light hearted then I imagined and had a great ending.
Then we decided to finally watch Darjeeling Limited. It's been on the DVR for a while. I admit it isn't what I imagined it to be, I wasn't sure what I imagined it to be but you know how that goes when you think something will be something it wasn't?
Then we decided to watch True Romance. Why have I never seen this before?!
Written by Tarantino and staring so many great actors. The ending was a bit unexpected but I really liked this movie. Maybe enough to purchase it!
And just when I thought movie night was over we turn on TBS and catch You've Got Mail halfway through... here goes!
