It was a good weekend.
If you loved the first Matrix movie, take the time to see it on the big screen again (I think all of the major movie chains are showing it at this point). It was actually really special and nostalgic for me. A few things in seeing it on the big screen again: I'm guilty of zoning out when I watch things on the TV. This movie does.not.stop. I forgot how intense all of the action and storyline really was and couldn't convince myself to leave my seat to go to the restroom. I still got chills on that first shot when Trinity leaps into the air and the camera stops and zooms around her. This is the movie that revolutionized cinematography and it STILL looks damn new and fresh. It holds it own against any film in the last 20 years and, really, is a damn sight better than a lot of newer films (new Mortal Kombat, I'm looking at you). Hearing it through the theatre sound system again was amazing and that soundtrack is still nothing but bangers. There were some scenes that were hard for me to watch b/c of how the story/philosophy behind it has been twisted (the red pill scene), but it was also good to watch those scenes with that knowledge in mind. It brought home how easy it really is for things to be twisted into radicalization. I'm probably going to go see it again, just because I can. I can't even tell you how many times I saw it in the theatre the first time, but I know it was close to 10 and I've never been w/out it on DVD. ETA: Oh, the other thing was how many iconic scene shots there are. So many times I would just grin at seeing another scene that I loved on the big screen.
Went to a friend's queer folk music concert on Saturday and then went out with friends. Had a lovely time, but staying out late meant I slept most of the day on Sunday. I adore my friend and his version of Wildflowers, with his storytelling, always makes me ugly cry.
Tonight, going to see Batman Returns on the big screen. I think we bought the tickets almost 2 months ago, so I had comletely forgotten until friend reminded me Saturday night. So, I'm super excited about that. I love the Keaton Batman's and Michelle Pfeiffer and Danny Devito were some of the best Batman villians.
Otherwise, the week is looking mostly the same.
