How about a Cinema Sunday post? I have not watched that many movies today, but I have not done a whole lot else either. I went running, I went shopping (grocery and other), I made a salad and other stuff for this week’s lunches, I cooked a nice dinner for Steven and me. Perhaps this will be a rambling post, more of a Scattered Sunday.
While I was chopping and mixing, Steven put in Signs (2002). Back when I used to like M Night Shyamalan movies. But let’s not get into that right now. I have not seen any of his recent stuff.
After Signs, Steven let me pick, and I chose Dracula (1931). It is more atmospheric than plot-driven, but I gotta love me some Bela Lugosi and Dwight Frye.
I have to say, though, the movie does not chug right along, the way I like a movie too. What can I say? It’s just my taste in theatre. After a highly respected classic, I wanted to watch a William Castle movie, which one might argue is a classic of a different sort (although I am no hand at argument). We decided on I Saw What You Did. It’s silly fun. Of course, these days it is not so easy to make prank phone calls. I never could make them successfully; people always recognize my voice. But at least Joan Crawford never yelled at me!
Now we are looking at Snapped while I make this blog post, but I’m not loving the episode on now. I wonder if I could talk Steven into House on Haunted Hill.
