No books, just some viewable entertainment to be had this week. I have to tell you – I’m having fun documenting what entertains me + sharing. I’ve already gotten some new ideas for things to check out, I’m loving it! I see many books in my future, and lots of happy + warm fuzzy stories too. You’ll understand when you read on…
I never wanted to watch a show about a serial killer. I mean eww, gross, and no way. Yet, too many of my trusted friends love it. Too many times I hear about it’s awesomeness… and ok so Netflix added season 1 to “watch instantly on computer” so I didn’t even have to request a disc. 9 hours (10 episodes) and a week later I’m hooked.
Dexter is such an interesting character, and he’s trained himself to not kill innocents, no he just takes his need to kill out on the true bad guys. Kinda vigilante and awesome really. There are some major twists and “oh no ways” already, and I look forward to see what future episodes and seasons bring. I’m taking some time off from my new TV show love though – need to mix it up!
and yet, just days before trying Dexter I found myself watching Inglorious Bastards. Neither of these seem like my “usual” but it’s like I try to explain – I’m all over the map with my likes!
I’m NOT a fan of Tarantino, but something about this movie made me want to see it anyway. I figured if it was too foul I could just hit stop, eject it, and forget about it. Instead I found myself totally sucked into it – and I really enjoyed it.
Some scenes were LONG, and there were some things I wish there had been more of, but it was pretty awesome all around. Not as much gore as I’d braced for, but you should still go into it with the understanding that “happily ever after” isn’t what’s on the agenda for everyone in the movie. The ending was NAILED perfectly. Oh so perfectly.
I’m a stickler for good endings, and this one had it.
On that note, I find myself wanting to read the chickiest of chick lits available, give myself a pedicure and facial mask, and maybe watch an old musical. This girl has been on the gory side of likes this week, and is ready to go back to other end of spectrum!
