Picture Show

The Bird and I love movies. Our freshman year of college we saw literally 99% of new releases. Good, bad, funny, drama filled, didn't matter. Ask me about practically any crappy movie from 2007-2008 and I can give you a quick synopsis, cast and review.  I mean, why go to class when you could see a  matinee? Plus Jared always had a hearty stash of movie gift cards. I actually yearn for the matinee (or manatee as a high school chum once called them). Fairly empty theaters, cheap tickets, a Chick-Fil-A nugget meal hidden in your purse...that's what I call a good time.

My mother-in-law told us that her father and Jared's namesake, Birdwell, always  said "I'd rather see a bad movie then no movie." Lack of time, patience and cash has taught us to be a little choosier with our films, but I'm sure we'll see something this weekend, hopefully a decent one.

I would love to see Moonrise Kingdom, but I don't believe it's made it down to the South yet. Have you heard of it? How beautiful is that poster? Wes Anderson has made some of my absolute favorite movies: The Fantastic Mr. Fox, The Royal Tenenbaums, Rushmore; and Moonrise Kingdom is getting great reviews.

 I mean for goodness sakes, there's a Francoise Hardy song in the trailer and Bill Murray, what more do you need? What movie are you most looking forward to seeing this summer?



  1. I actually got a mention:)!

    Because it is easier to edit someone else than yourself...check your use of "then" above. I believe it should be "than."
