So I’ve been quite down these past few days. Then I realized that happiness was much like love - it all boils down to choice. And so, I decided to break a few personal rules and just go with the flow. And surprisingly, not only was I distracted, but I found myself happy. :)
Anyway, back to the real topic. I had my very first movie marathon. Nope, not the one where you stay at home and sit on the couch all the day. The expensive version. I started it off with Catching Fire Friday night, then Thor 2 and Frozen yesterday. Yes it was very expensive, but the time I spent with the people I watched these movies with were priceless. :) ♡ I got to know them I bit more than the usual exposure. I also received confirmation for my theory that watching movies is always fun when you’re not alone. Haha :))
Reviews: Okay, since some of you haven’t watched at least one of these movies, I’ll make this spoiler-proof.
1. Catching Fire was just awesome. I’m partially biased because among the three books, this one was my favorite. But even if I removed my bias, this movie still killed. The emotions were so raw. The entire movie was wonderfully crafted. And the arena was simply epic. It was so good that I actually wouldn’t mind spending more just so I can watch it a couple more times. But, alas, I have limited budget. Oh well.
2. Thor 2 was a bit overrated for me. It was a splendid movie, but the story itself lacked something. If it weren’t for my Loki, I would have disliked it. However, Loki was there, being his adorable, menacing and scheming self, and so I had to swoon and giggle like a kid. :)) Loki made the movie worth watching. What about Chris Hemsworth’s dreamyness? Well, it got a bit boring. And isn’t it obvious that I was fixated on a single character? Hihi
3. Frozen is a GEM. I’ve always loved Disney, and this movie just made me love it even more. I felt like a child (ask my cat. He witnessed a 26 year old woman giggling like a kid and gasping at the right places.) again. The songs were so wonderful, the characters so easy to love, and the entire feel was just so Disney. But what I loved most about it is that, now that Disney and Pixar are together on this, Frozen diverted from the usual Disney plot. It was so much more moving and meaningful. It’s defintely something I would watch with my family. :) ♡ Did I cry? Oh yes I did. Like a kid. :)
And so, my happy weekend ends at this happy note. I heavily enjoyed myself, like when I have too much coffee and I’m just plain giddy. The worst part of it all though was the crash. Much like when I crash from caffeine. Unpleasant. But then again, the important part was for the first time in many weeks, I WAS TRULY HAPPY. And this made everything worthwhile. :) ♡
