I love movies... I can’t even begin to explain how much I love movies. One of the reasons I can stay home for an entire week without going even as far as my gate is because of movies.
I really enjoy seeing movies at home. That way, I can rewind as many times as I want just to enjoy a joke over and over again; I can also identify the actor/director’s mistakes and well, it’s cheaper! *wink*
There’s just something about seeing movies in the comfort of your house. It’s better than the cinemas; there’s no one disturbing you with BB noise, no one chewing gum aloud, you’re not distracted by the couple practising the kiss they’ve just seen in the movie and definitely no one laughing 5 minutes after everyone else saw the funny scene!
Don’t get me wrong, I go to the cinemas sometimes, especially when I need to get the full effects of a movie (e.g. 2012, Avater, Blood diamond) but most times, I see the movie even before it starts to show at the cinemas... don’t ask me how! It’s not easy to start explaining how to get down the load.
I have my movies on the go – at least 3 on my phone at any given time and over 100 on my external hard drive still waiting to be watched. When I’m not tweeting or reading, my movies help me through traffic.
A simple drama isn’t just enough; there must be something thought provoking about the plot (Inception, Shutter Island), the suspense should make your heart race (88 minutes); the characters must make you want to watch it again (Prison break).
Criminal plots/detective stories are my favourite. I just get really excited at solving the puzzle in my living room before *Michael Scofield or Agent Jason Gideon or Charlie Duchamp find the answers on the screen. In my mind, I’m a profiler; hopefully someday I might get into the behavioural analysis unit of the FBI. Even if I don’t, there’s no harm in increasing one’s IQ is there?
I love Tyler Perry’s works a great deal. He always has a serious message to pass along hence whether he’s dressed as hilarious grandma Madae or fine husband Terry Brock, you’re sure to learn a thing or two. His choice of soundtrack is always on point too and if you’re looking for a family based drama with an input of the God factor then you know where to look.
I’ll leave you with ‘Each Tear’ by Mary J. Blige. Its dedicated to Kitkat, I pray you shake off your worries and conclude your preparations for the exams on Monday. Best of luck.
