Movies have become an expensive form of entertainment these last few years so for me personally, da movie had bettah be "worth it". For some it may trigger memories or flashbacks yet there are others who are moved and take from it a different take on life even if it be for the next few minutes. Then as it wears off, da cruel world slaps you back to reality.
I remembah one lazy Saturday morning/afternoon month's ago, I started watching "Friday Night Lights"... then "We Are Marshall" then "Miracle" all in a row... there went putting up da rain gutters project.
While all not spectacular movies, as a former athlete, I appreciate the underlying messages of brotherhood, drive, success and failure and can relate to those directly so it does have more of an impact on me while Da Wife just rolled her eyes asking if those kinds of things really happen.
Rogah, it most definitely does.
I'm not afraid to admit I cry at movies - should da "message" be right and motivating - and even though I've seen a movie a gazillion times on tv or dvd and know da ending isn't going to change if I see it again (potagee joke), I'll still shed a tear.
I know some of you are saying, Wassup Wit Dat!
Well nothing if I'm trying to show off my emotional side to da wahines.
Have you shed a tear at any recent movies? Does any movie constantly do it for you? Are you an emotional sap? Does watching emotional or "true" types of movies help us or do we end up just using the catch phrase, "this ain't the movies"? Wat about having incarcerated criminals watch movies like Steel Magnolias - you tink das cruel and unusual punishment?
