Friday night........After going to every video store in town searching for The Missing and Matchstick Men, we finally "settled" on Radio! What an amazing movie. We had always planned on seeing this one in the theaters, but always thought of something we thought we would like better. Now we both agree that we have to have it for the collection.
Saturday Night.......still searching for The Missing and Matchstick Men, we were at the last video store in town, and had Under the Tuscan Sun and House of the Dead. As we were checking out, the guy behind the counter strongly advised us against The House of the Dead. Now, being extremely disappointed and frustrated because we can't find the two movies we REALLY WANT, then being told that one of the choices we made we shouldn't waste our money on, we just wanted to get in the car, get up to highway speed, then push each other out. I went back to the shelves, in search of SOMETHING good to watch, when my g/f decided that me asking if either one of those movies had been turned in wasn't enough. She had to ASK AGAIN.......and boy am I glad that she did! Between the time that we came in and that moment, someone had turned in Matchstick Men!! This was a good movie, we both enjoyed it, but I think the frustration and determination of finding it has us all worked up, so even if it had been the best movie ever, we still would have had some sort of let down.
Girlfriends note......Johnny fell asleep within 20 minutes of us watching Under the Tuscan Sun, but I thought it was a good movie. One part of the movie that I didn't quite get, and maybe I am trying to make more out of it than was meant to be, but what is with the water spigot coming out of the middle of the wall? All I have to say is, if we don't find The Missing REAL soon, I'm just gonna go buy it so the agony will be over.....although now it is like a challenge, so buying it would be like cheating or giving up, and that's no fun!
