I think I'm developing some sort of emotional disorder dealing with entertainment. It seems that recently I've been more prone to emotional breakdowns in movies or from TV than I normally am. On Tuesday I went to "Batman Begins" in the dollar theater in town. It was my second time going to that movie, but I decided that I couldn't miss it since it could be the last time I can see a movie in that theater (They sold it and it's closing next week! BOO!). I actually cried at "Batman Begins." Unbelievable and embarrassing... but enjoyable and cathartic for me.
Then, I started watching the first season of "LOST." I've been borrowing the DVD's from my friend, D(M)T. For some reason, I am really getting into the show. I would say that I could be developing an addiction. I am only on the third DVD, but I can't wait to see what happens with Hurley and folks. I love Hurley. I have contemplated skipping work and all social functions just to keep updated on the "LOST" situation. This hasn't happened since.... well, I don't know the last time I really wanted to see a show that I would actually schedule the show's watching into my weekly schedule. I will probably start taping the episodes because I have a scuba class during the time that it normally plays on TV.
The final clue that leads me to believe that there's something up with my emotions is that I went to a chick flick last night ("Just Like Heaven"), and I REALLY liked the movie. It had all of the elements of a chick flick that I wouldn't normally like, but somehow, I thought it was fantastic. After it was over, I wanted to cry or something because it was so good. Granted, I had been having sort of a rough day and was already a little emotionally frazzled, but this was totally uncharacteristic of me. A friend even commented how shocked she was that I liked it that well because I usually don't get into the chick flicks as much as she does.
My entertainment emotional status is still on edge... and I have no idea why, but I am enjoying it. I hope it continues for a little while. I think that producers of movies would like me right now as a reviewer because I would probably think that even the dumbest movies are good in my current condition. I give "Batman Begins," "LOST," and "Just Like Heaven" A+'s all around.
