I have been binging on movies and television and books this week, as after the craziness of moving - I've been spending a TON of time in bed! Can anyone say exercise hangover?? The joys of having CFIDS and Fibromyalgia!
I really, really, REALLY enjoyed this movie. Kathy Bates has the ability to be creepy as all miserable hell! I can honestly say that I have NEVER read a Stephen King book, and movies like this make me think that I should definitely change that situation!. This is classic psychological horror, without gore, and easily can make my top 20 favorite horror films! I could actually imagine this happening in real life, and that is the scariest part.
I stopped watching Grey's Anatomy somewhere around the 3rd season. It had become too melodramatic, and I was bored of the stories. I heard from so many people that the 6th season finale was AMAZING, so I had to check it out. Those two shooter episodes had me on the edge of my seat the entire time, even though I was no longer close to the characters. I have been watching every episode since, and I'm back to really enjoying it!
The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time:
This was a neat little novel! I could relate far too much to the protagonist, who couldn't understand why he couldn't continue his search into who killed the neighborhood dog! His autism makes it hard for his family to care for him, and as he searches for answers, he finds more than he ever thought possible. This of course shatters his very feeling of safety. Definitely worth a read for anyone interested in autism!
I can't believe it had taken me this long to see this movie! A beautiful story about a life-long friendship. The best thing about this movie was that it was honest, portraying both women as having talents and flaws, and allowing them to fight throughout numerous years of the story. It's exhausting emotionally though, so I'll only recommend it if you have a big box of tissues!
What do you recommend this week? How about some great 80s movie suggestions?
