Last weekend, I went to see “The Fault in Our Stars” with the Boy, his two friends, and the mom of one of the friends. I didn’t really know anything about the movie, but I knew it was a tear-jerker. The other mom brought a box of tissue for us. I hadn’t actually planned on seeing the movie until it came out on Netflix, but I was invited, so I went.
It was a cute movie and I shed a few tears, but it wasn’t the sob story that I thought it would be or that people made it out to be. Maybe, it’s because I figured out the plot twist early on or maybe because the characters just weren’t grabbing me. This is not to say I didn’t like or enjoy the movie; I did. I just feel like my original idea of watching it on Netflix was the better choice. And, I probably would have cried more if I watched it on Netflix.
This brings me to my take on movies. If the movie has a lot of special effects, then it needs to be seen on big screen. This would include, the Marvel movies, action/ adventure, and specialty movies. I also throw in the occasional comedy or love story on big screen. Otherwise, I wait for Netflix or cable (when I have it).
I love movies and would watch them 24/7 if I could. I can always find something I like . . . I’m easily entertained. And, I can watch some movies over and over . . . Channing Tatum anyone?
Until next time, much peace and love.
