|mmmm RDJ fortified with iron|
Obviously we did not get one measly glimpse at the uber hot Tony Stark, save for passing a poster at the theatre on the way to the grocery store -- which for the record DOES. NOT. COUNT. Yes, I'm not bitter at all, not one drop.
Instead we watched a perfectly good movie on our TV that had Viggo Mortonsen who is a totally acceptable replacement for Robert Downey Jr. Plus I must admit that watching a movie at home is a heck of a lot more comfortable and efficient than going to the theatre. For starters I don't need to put on pants.
But even that excellent reason cannot stop my inner movie snob from pouting because certain movies *cough* Iron Man 2 *cough* were made for the big screen. Please don't get my inner movie snob started on the absolute mandatory requirement of surround-sound or I'll never finish this post which is about both movies and the possibility of winning real money (you, not me winning money SO PLEASE DO HANG ON).
Movies: I love them and when they are seen in an actual theatre, all the better. Of course now that I'm a responsible parent who also has no real babysitter, seeing a theatre movie with my preferred date is a very rare event. Needless to say when the opportunity arises I like to see a movie from my must-see list. Can't have a rare event marred by a stinker movie.
Which brings me to the possibility of winning real cold hard cash part of this post. All you need to do is answer the following movie-related question over at BlogHer and you might win $100 dollars in cold hard cash (cash may or may not be hard but trust me, it still feels good.) So what is the question?
What are your must-see summer movies for 2010?
For the record, mine are:
- Iron Man 2 [Three words: Robert. Downey. Jr. Need I say more?]
- Eclipse [Yes, I'm a Twilight Mom. Stop judging me.]
- Toy Story 3 [This selection is a direct result of being a parent. Parenthood: it changes you in ways you'd never imagine or even care to admit.]
- George A. Romero's Survival of the Dead [I'm an unapologetic horror movie lover]
- The A-Team [Again stop judging me. I could have said MacGruber.]
.... but because of those fancy-schmancy rules, I cannot win. But that doesn't mean you can't. So go on now and get. Share your summer must-see movies over at BlogHer. Trust me, entering to win the money is way easier than finding a babysitter on a Saturday night. Word to this mother.
