my new favorite thing is buying tv shows on dvd by the season
it started harmlessly enough...a friend got me the first three seasons of family guy for christmas. it was fun to watch show after show after show... then i started to branch out... i purchased all the seasons of the Newlyweds (no kidding), then i found the simple life in the cheap dvd bin at walmart. then it kinda started to spiral.
big brother season 3 (the only one on dvd, otherwise i'd have them all)
american idol seasons 1-4, the best and worst of
gilmore girls seasons 1-5 (thanks to r.lew who got me hooked)
veronica mars season 1
grey's anatomy, season 1
and you wouldn't believe my wish list at amazon...or the fact that i've got the release dates of all the upcoming releases written in BOLD into my day planner.
it doesn't help that we've cancelled the cable for the summer (oh miserable death...i'm missing SO MUCH...)
i saw the new "pirates" movie on saturday. in general, i'm terrible at being a critical viewer...i basically take things as they come, never try to guess the endings. i'm never the one to see when things don't match up. it would take quite a lot for me to dislike a movie for any real reason.
anyways. i saw pirates 2. and here's the thing. i didn't really like it. i know it's supposed to be the big movie blockbuster...and everyone's supposed to love it, and ooh jonny dep (to which i say eww)...but i thought it was gross. and too loud. and lacking in something, although i can't pinpoint what.
please don't harass me. i don't want this to be ostracized like i was when i announced that i hate "amazing grace." maybe i should take some sort of class about how to view movies more analytically. or critically. or whatever it is that makes me sound smarter about movies than i currently do. any tips?
