Don absolutely loves films and seeing them in the cinema, while I am somewhat ambivalent (love them! loathe them! no in-between!) and I am conflicted about the cinema experience: adore small theatres / would rather cut out my eyes than sit in a multiplex.
This has resulted in us vary rarely going to the movies. This makes some of us Very Sad.
The Sadness compelled us to compile a list of the movies we have ventured out to watch in the 6 years of our relationship, which has been affixed to our refrigerator.
- An Inconvenient Truth
- Black Dahlia
- The Departed
- Casino Royale
- The September Issue
- Sherlock Holmes
Today, at Don’s request, we had a movie date and saw skyfall – which I completely and utterly LOATHED (don’t even get me started).
But, despite the loathing, it made me realise that we’re now 10 or 30 minutes walk from two excellent independent cinemas. And we should take advantage of this.
So, I’ve bought Donaldo a year’s membership to both cinemas (cheap tix!) and we’ve agreed that we should attend two films a month – no matter how potentially ghastly.
At the very least should be bondly!
