Costume drama

I’m a hat girl.

I like to wear them. They look good on me. I have plenty of head.

And while I don’t really need to ever see the movie Titanic all the way through ever again, I was willing to watch the first 30 minutes or so this morning…just to see Kate Winslet board the ship —

wearing this amazing hat.

Wonder what ever happened to it? I would gladly take it.

(Just saying)

All wet

AMC Theatres recently replaced their Moviewatchers loyalty program with their all-new “AMC Stubs.”

As a longtime Moviewatcher, I have received numerous emails about the change, and promos about the new program have played before every movie at the theatre.

One of the ads centers around a favorite moviegoer memory.  A young man waxes poetic about watching the movie Titanic with his girlfriend.  As they both reach for the popcorn at the same time, their hands touch and at that moment, he knows she is the one for him.

Very romantic, butter and all.

I have my own Titanic movie memory.  I too saw it with a date, the brother of a co-worker.  He seemed nice enough during dinner, but after the movie began, I quickly discovered:

He was a movie talker.

He talked — aloud and loudly — during the entire film.  But he wasn’t talking to me; he was talking to the characters on screen.  “Don’t go down that corridor!”  “Be careful — he’s got a gun!”  “It’s sinking!  It’s sinking!”

Titanic may have lasted 2 1/2 hours, but it felt twice that long from where I was sitting…especially since I saw it with a group of my friends who were extremely entertained by the movie and the floor show my date was giving.

I didn’t see him again.  Titanic wasn’t the only thing that sank that night.

Ah, movie memories…

Best of the worst

Sunday was Valentine’s Day.  Hope yours was loverly.

As you probably know, a movie of the same name was released on Friday.  Did you see it?

I didn’t get a chance.  Too much Olympics coverage to watch.  (I did see a preview performance of “Miracle Worker” on Broadway with Abigail Breslin, which was spectacular).

According to rottentomatoes.com, “Valentine’s Day” the movie is 84 percent rotten.  As one reviewer put it, “This has not a single ounce of the charm that you might find in ‘Love Actually’ or a number of other films revolving around romance. It’s just plain bad.”

Oh well…I still want to witness the carnage.   There are a lot of actors in the film that I like and, even if they suck, well, I’ll enjoy seeing that, too.

So, in honor of the suckiest things that movies have to offer, I thought I would resurrect the Top Ten Worst Movie Quotes of All Time, which were compiled in a survey by Warburtons.

Enjoy!
