living the movies?

I picked up a bunch of movies as potentials for tomorrow's senior high youth group activity: "Holy Hollywood, Batman!" I also picked up several movies I haven't seen before. So I, naturally, grabbed Because of Winn Dixie and Bridge to Terebithia to complement Lord of the Rings and Saved from my own collection.
For movies I haven't seen, I picked up Enchanted, Babel, the Kite Runner, Dreamgirls, and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.

When I started watching that last one, I thought "hmm...this seems familiar..." and after about 20 minutes I was pretty sure I'd seen it before. Yes, in fact, I have--by the time we got to the memory-erasing part that happens at night, I knew it for sure.

The irony of this is not lost on me.

I just hope that I don't start to live out the other movies too...

(I've finished Enchanted--cute but predictable, Eternal Sunshine, and most of Dreamgirls so far. I might be able to use a scene from dreamgirls tomorrow, but other than that so far I'm going with my originally planned clips...)

  1. I thought Enchanted was cute, but it took a while to get past the campiness of the first few scenes in live action. What was Amy Adams doing with her hands? But Susan Sarandon is the perfect movie villain, and I'm glad to see Peter Pettigrew getting more work. I loved the ending.
