going to the movies

These last few weeks have been pretty reflective for me. As part of that, I went and watched three different movies in theatres – Lincoln, Argo and Silver Linings Playbook. They were all excellent. Go see them while they’re still in theatre.

Actually, I highly recommend you go see lots of movies in theatre – period. Not on a date, but by yourself. 

There is a certain magic to watching a good film in theatre. A good film oftentimes tells a story about a very specific yet interesting part of our lives or history. Beautiful and important stories are everywhere, not just in the movies but in real life. 

I find that watching a good film in theatre reminds to pay attention to those stories.

    I enjoy going to the movies alone – I get to see whatever I want and I have time and space to process what I’ve watched. Taking myself to a movie is a way to treat myself. Occasionally, I’ll let a friend tag along. 😉

    Alaia, thank you for your comment. Come to think of it, I only saw one of those movies alone. What’s your favorite movie you saw in 2012?

    I didn’t go to the movies as much this year as I did in previous years. I really enjoyed Argo. Next week, I’m looking forward to Le Miz and Django. I’ve also heard good things about Silver Linings Playbook, so I might give that a go as well. Can’t wait!

    Django looks good too.
