Movies are my Salvation

So I am still under strict orders to NOT do...well anything again tonight. I am allowed to blog, play games online, read my email and also watch tv and movies. Otherwise I have to go wake my Mom to make her stop me, which I don't want to do, so I am praying nothing...yeah how sad is that...I am praying that nothing pops into my head. I would like to be thoughtless, though that sounds bad, but it is not the same way thoughtless is usually used. I just want to be free of any thoughts, they are what gets my OCD started. I also can't think of doing a craft even as a friend suggested because I would get OCD about that! Have to finish or what not. Because I am 9 months behind...at least...on my scrapbooking, which I want to be caught up on, but I am not even going to think about that right now...it is good I haven't ordered the 188 photos I need from the last 5 months or I would probably be doing that. Thank goodness I didn't. Whoo.

Anyway, I went and saw Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakuel last night, and I don't care what anyone says, I found it so cute!! It made me laugh too, which was very much needed. I also saw half of the dvd Beyond a Reasonable Doubt, before I fell asleep. It has Michael Douglas and Jesse Metcalfe and Amber Tamblyn. Metcalfe, a reporter thinks DA Michael Douglas is tampering with physical evidence on murder cases. Using one cop to switch or replace evidence that has the defendants DNA on it, and that is how he has won 17 trials in a row after a really disastrous period. Tamblyn works for the DA but it dating Metcalfe and doesn't know what story he is working on. Metcalfe decides the only way to prove it is to set himself up for a recent murder. He finds out what the weapon type was and his friend tapes him buying one holding a newspaper with the day's date on it, so people will see he bought it AFTER the murder. He does this with the shoe type that was found, buys a pair on ebay, records getting it with a current newspaper, etc. He even buys a small dog and gets it to bite him where the cops suspect the murderer was bitten by a small dog and documents it. So he gets himself arrested pretending to be drunk, and one of the detectives sees the bite and the rare shoes and they bust into his apartment and find a switchblade and stuff they think is evidence. Then the bad cop takes over the investigation, and with NO real physical evidence linking Metcalfe to the crime (as he IS innocent), he still knows DNA is going to make him look guilty, either his own or the victims. He is arrested and that is when I fell asleep. So I need to see how it plays out, if Tamblyn believes her BF or her boss she trusts, and if Metcalfe can pull off the biggest story of the century. I don't even know these answers: Will the videos be found and erased by the bad cop? Will Metcalfe get OUT of prison? Will he get his story? Or will Douglas win and become governor by framing people, including this innocent reporter? I am dying to find out!!

I am first watching this dvd I rented today which is due back tomorrow. It has Eva Mendes and Jay Hernandez and Katie Cassidy and David Krumholtz. Ooh and Jeffrey Dean Morgan!! ♥ It is like a reality show, but Eva Mendes wants to make it FRESH!! It is called Live. And she decides to make a show where it pushes the envelope. The show is Russian Roulette, with contestants competing for 5 million dollars on-air, complete with loaded guns!! How this would ever get on the AIR, I don't know because it is not set in some dark future, like Gamer or Death Race, but it sounded very intriguing, and the cast is stellar, so here is to hoping for the best. Then I am so watching the rest of my other movie tonight...hopefully I don't fall asleep again. But I wouldn't be that upset, I am still SO tired. SO freaking tired, it is unbelievable. I had trouble sleeping though, but my mother told me that the kind of stress I had put myself in, doesn't just go away, it can last days, so that may be screwing up my sleeping. Man, that sucks.

I am trying to keep things relatively light...how am I doing? Okay?

I am so looking forward to seeing Leap Year, it is out this Friday!! It looks so cute! I love Amy Adams in this type of role! Also I am SO looking forward to these 2 romantic comedies, I had to include the trailers so you could see why! Alex O'Loughlin in one and Gerard Butler in the other! Now that is reason enough right there!!

The Back Up Plan: Okay this is with J.Lo and she can ruin a movie, but this has my second love (after Jensen Ackles) Alex O'Loughlin in it people!! He IS hot. Like his picture is with the definition of hotness! It isn't shown in this movie but in real life?? He has a Scottish accent!! Drool worthy!! Watch it!!



And...The Bounty Hunter. Jennifer Aniston and Gerard ♥ Butler, who is so hot also!!Watch NOW! You will LAUGH!

Squeakquel, haha! That's such a funny word!

Toriz said...

I want to see the chipmunk movie. I have the first one, and - I don't care what anyone says - I love it!

Mary said...

I hadn't seen the preview for the back up plan...but it actually looks pretty good. And, I'm sorry but of you don't drool over Gerard Butler, than you must not have a pulse! I can't wait to see the bounty hunter!

Constance Marie said...

Russian Roulette on TV? Wow.... Brilliant idea.... NOT.

And I agree -- Bounty Hunter actually looks pretty funny, even though it will most likely be pretty stupid.

I enjoy a good movie..but I am so so picky, it takes a to impress me!

I really don't know how I feel about the JLO movie.
She's only been in one movie that I've ever liked.
I feel like that could just be another dud.
