Movie Saturdays

It's a lazy Saturday! I have homework I could be doing, along with a paper due. I have tons of cleaning and organizing that could be done. But no, I have been lying on the couch all day with Kiki watching movies. You know there is never anything on TV on Saturdays. So today was the day to take advantage of the movie channels. Thank God for Movies On Demand. I'm still in my PJ's so it's not like I would ever get up and go to the video store to rent anything. So of course, the movies I had to watch had me all misty eyed! The first one I watched, just because Bou and I have been talking about Pat Conroy, was Prince of Tides. This movie is a disgrace compared to the book! Maybe it's just Barbara Streisand, I don't know, but it's tough to watch...but I spent the 2 hours comparing the two as I have done many times before. No matter what though, it still gets you at the end. I then watched The Notebook. I've heard so many people talking about this, but I wanted to read the book first. I've read one Nicholas Sparks book (as he lives in New Bern, NC where I used to live) and enjoyed it, so I wanted to read this one first. But, I went ahead and watched the movie. It was excellent as everyone had said...definitely a chic flick! I really want to read the book now because I'm sure it's better! It reminded me of the song Where've You Been by Kathy Mattea. Talk about a Saturday of tears!! So tomorrows movies need to be un-sappy. But these damn PPV Movies can get expensive and I'm cheap. So, I'm going to let you vote as to what I watch Sunday. This way, if it blows, I can blame it on you all. :-P
