Cinema bondage

What is the last movie you bonded with?

Bonded — you know what that feels like. Where you are smiling before it ends.  Where you join everyone applauding at the end.  Can’t stop thinking about it that night…or the next day.  Bore your friends and family talking about it, practically recruiting people to go see it.

And end up seeing it again at the theatre…at today’s prices.

What was your last movie bonding experience?

My friend Caroline and I were discussing this topic last night at dinner.  She hasn’t had this feeling for a very long time — she estimates, in fact, since she saw the movie “Chicago” way back in 2002.  (Wow — I still find that hard to believe.)

Now, I go to the movie a bit more frequently than Caroline…and to fewer with talking animals. So I feel I have more opportunities to see films that give me those bonding moments. But even I had to pull up imdb.com to remind me what movies in 2009 had given me that special-wecial feeling.

My choice to date for 2009?

“500 Days of Summer.”  I saw it at a special sneak preview in New York City.  I loved, loved, loved this ‘anti-romantic comedy’ — that’s what the critics quickly dubbed it — and I know I bored a lot of people afterward, encouraging them to go see this incredible little indie film.  I hope you saw it.  If not, add it to your Netflix queue….now

So, what film did you bond with in 2009?

Inquiring minds want to know.

  1. Since they opened a theater with a bar just down the street from me, I’m ashamed to say I might be more likely to hook up than bond. I did love Star Trek enough to see it like four times. But I don’t know that I’ve really bonded with a movie since Raising Arizona…
