MOVIE DATE WITH MYSELF
I love movies. Old ones. New ones. Especially good ones.
I’m trying to see a couple movies that are doing well in the awards seasons thus far. My Sweetie and I saw “True Grit” a few weeks ago and just loved it. (I hope that little girl wins an Oscar – she was sooooo good.)
“Black Swan” and “The King’s Speech” were both on my want to see list but they are not Sweetie’s kind of movies. Most times he will go with me to see those kinds of movies but he really doesn’t like to. However, he advised me several years ago the he never wanted to go to another Barbra Streisand movie with me again. He just can’t stand her and I dearly love her. Oh well ...
Anyway, on my own, I went to see “The King’s Speech.” I loved it! I’ve been a huge Colin Firth fan ever since “Pride and Prejudice”/Mr. Darcy days.
He’s not particularly sexy in this new movie but you can really feel his character’s pain in dealing with a speech impediment in public life. The pre-WWII British history interested me as well. I highly recommend this movie.
