Lights, camera, movie meme!

When in need to do a blog catch up, do a meme- thank you @katejf and @girlwithshoes, and @malbooth! This also sandwiches in nicely with a film review I did this morning and another one in development for tomorrow. So here is…

  20. Valentine’s Day ($110.5M)  saw and fell asleep on the plane
  21. Robin Hood ($105.3M)
  22. The Expendables ($103.1M)
  23. Date Night ($98.7M) saw on the plane (not too bad)
  24. Due Date ($95.4M)
  25. Sex and the City 2 ($95.3M)

Of the 25, I saw 7, 4 of which were on a plane back to Australia from London and the other 3 I saw on DVD. I want to see Inception and the Deathly Hallows, but the others either leave me cold.

While I sometimes feel I may be missing whole pop culture references from this period of my life later on, but thanks to keeping abreast of blogs, websites and newspapers, I know what would be to my taste and what I want to spend my money on.

It takes a lot for me to shell out nearly $20 a ticket for a movie, plus babysitting (organisation and payment). DVDs are easier to watch, you can have captions and you can stop it if you need a loo break 🙂


One thought on “Lights, camera, movie meme!

  1. I so agree – it’s so expensive to go to the movies these days, and with recent experience I found that the kids’ movies are offered more as 3D forcing you to shell out more. Not worth it. I can wait til it’s on DVD too.
