A friend had passes to An early showing of Annabelle last night. I generally watch horror in broad daylight, on my couch, with a blanket over my head and just one eyeball on the screen.
I love horror movies, but you can’t tell by my method of consumption.
I took a very fuzzy scarf with me to substitute for the blanket. I warned him; I do this thing with horror.
It was hot outside and in last night. But I wore the scarf and didn’t break a sweat, because the movie scared all of the liquid back into wherever it all hangs out. I have yet to go pee after having a beer and a diet coke last night.
Annabelle is full of nonsensical moments, but the horror parts they nailed on top of almost every classic horror film you’ve seen and loved to poop your pants to, and it works. I’m sure it loses punch when watched in the daylight on one’s couch, but do that I will when it comes around in that format since I can then watch it with two eyes peeping out of a blanket instead of just one.
I did see and like The Conjuring, but there is no need to know or have seen anything about anything before walking into this movie.
Jarmusch knows pretty pictures and music, but the guy can’t tell a compelling story.
Only Lovers Left Alive. Gorgeous, but plodding. Only marginally more magnetic than his earlier films. I really wanted more out of this one.
"Eve: Tell me now about entanglement. Einstein’s spooky action at a distance. Is it related to quantum theory?
Adam: Hm. No I mean, it’s not a Theory it’s proven.
Eve: How it’s go again?
Adam: When you separate an entwined particle and you move both parts away from the other, even at opposite ends of the universe, if you alter or affect one, the other will be identically altered or affected.
Eve: Spooky. Even at opposite ends of the universe?
Writing is controlled bleeding out.
I know everyone loves their FitBit, but the next time I have to duck/dodge because someone nearly punches me - because their Bit went buzz and scared them into Kermit Arms - I am going to find out if FitBits burn like tires.
I HAVEN’T EVEN HAD LUNCH YET. WHAT I DO IS NOT THAT IMPORTANT. 90 NEW EMAILS IS BALLS AND I’M NOT IN THE MOOD.
GIVE ME 90 NEW PAIRS OF MITTENS.
