I was driving in the car and started thinking about great songs that have become so iconic [for me] in movies that EVERY time I hear them I’m brought to a specific scene in a specific movie. 1.  Time after Time – Cyndi Lauper —— Romy & Michele’s High School Reunion.  The dance scene at the end…c’mon, you know the one I’m talking about. 2. Thriller – Michael Jackson —— 13 Going on 30. The dance scene which turns into a full-on Thriller line dance reenactment.  Awesome! 3. Layla [the end] – Eric Clapton —— Goodfellas. Unfortunately the end of Layla always brings to mind the scenes where Robert DeNiro is cleaning up all the accomplices to his perfect crime.  Yuck. Does anyone have any other good ones?... Permalink

Watching Eclipse With a Guy – Part 1
Stereotypes exist for a reason. Most women like any film adaptation of a Nicholas Sparks novel, and most men enjoy a Michael Bay flick. Not all women and not all men subscribe to these stereotypes, but quite a few do, and thus the existence of the stereotypes. Twilight: Eclipse finally came to the movie channels (in High-Def – yay!!) and Husband and I decided to watch it together. I had actually gone to see the movie when it was in the theaters, and even had a vague recollection of coming home and telling Husband “You shouldn’t watch that movie. Ever.” As time has passed and memories have faded, however, I seem to have forgotten my resolve on this issue. Now, stereotypes would dictate that I would enjoy the movie, and Husband would find it more than a little boring. I wish I could say that we broke the mold and smashed the stereotypes into which we are supposed to fall. I fell completely into mine, while Husband fell into what can only be described as a constant state of incredulity. The viewing was split into two nights, as the girls usually don’t give up the fight to stay awake until it’s too late to actually watch a full movie in one evening. There was also quite a bit of pausing and editorial commentary (a la Mystery Science Theater 3000) so the viewing was much longer than the actual runtime of the movie. AND NOW …… Watching Eclipse with a Guy. (Note:  Some of the scenes may be out of order due to my poor memory, but I have tried to reconstruct the conversations exactly)   Edward and Bella sitting in their field of flowers. Edward has just proposed to Bella and is giving her his moon eyes. Husband:  Wait, wait,... Continue Reading
