A Challenge Update
After work yesterday I drove to Wal-Mart and bought a new Philips DVD player (yes, yes, I know the evils of Wal-Mart but I’m young, broke and they’re cheap). It took twice as long to plug everything in as it would a normal person, but I’m technologically-challenged.
I just wanted to thank everyone for all their suggestions. I have seen quite a few of the suggestions, which I think goes to show the O.C. has great taste in movies. 😉 And look at all of you and your foreign flicks – how worldly!
On recommendation from a friend, I went to Hollywood Video last night and checked out some episodes of The Wire. Today, I went back to the video store, but I had forgot to bring the list of DVDs that you all suggested. The only one I could remember off the top of my head was Amelie, which I amazingly have not yet seen despite the two dozen people who recommended it over the years – but they didn’t have it! The one time I actually try to check it and they don’t have it!
So I picked up another disc of The Wire and checked out Little Children, starring Kate Winslet. I remember seeing trailers of it last year and thinking it looked really interesting. I’ll let you know what I think after I watch it.
I’m also thinking about just going and seeing Cloverfield this weekend. Honestly, I’ve never been much for watching scary movies, but there are so many people I know who are threatening to give everything away that if I don’t see it now I might not have much of a reason to see it ever… and then I will once again be the loser who hasn’t seen the latest blockbuster hit.
So I have a bunch of movie recommendations, but I’m a little low on book suggestions? Keep ’em coming, people! I know you have opinions…
