I’m not usually a big fan of movies, mainly because they’re expensive, they require me to sit down for an extended period of time, and being in a dark, crowded theater is never a comforting experience for someone with anxiety issues–I tend to keep one eye on the screen and one eye on the nearest emergency exit. That being said, I have been known to enjoy a good movie from time to time, and there are a few coming out that might convince me to face my movie-phobia…
Anna Karenina. I have mixed feelings about Keira Knightley. She’s drop dead gorgeous and I would kill for that body, but there’s something about the way she talks that I don’t like (picky, much?) Regardless, I am beyond excited for this movie. This is a camping out the night before kind of movie (ok, maybe I’m not that excited.) I love the book, it’s directed by the same dude who directed Atonement (great movie), and the soundtrack promises to be phenomenal. (And the dresses! I’m a girl, and I can’t help but be distracted by the gorgeous costumes in these period pieces. I’m not ashamed.) Starts Friday, November 16–who will be seeing it with me??
Lincoln. I’ve been somewhat obsessed with Lincoln ever since playing Lincoln Portrait quite a few years ago. He had a way with words, and his speeches were timely, timeless, eloquent and inspiring. This movie could go either way, but I think it might be worthwhile to give it a shot (pardon the pun…)
Any good movies I’m missing?
