Okay, at all. I hardly go out at all. And I missed a lot of good movies back when the kids were younger because . . . kids. And no sitter. Then they got older but I got divorced and money for movies is very tight and is usually spent on Disney and Pixar movies when I get it.
So a lot of great movies go by, but thank goodness for Wal-Mart and Target. I'll see a movie I'd really wanted to see in the theaters on a shelf with a price tag of less than $10 (God bless the Wal-Mart $5 DVD bin!) and I snag it, if I've got the cash.
And then it sits. See, the problem is, I'm a writer. And I need my kid-free time to write. When the kids are around, they make it hard to watch and enjoy a movie (my son sings all the time and my daughter is always playing YouTube videos while we watch). Consequently, the movies don't get watched. They gather dust. Here are ten I want to watch, but am ashamed to say I haven't, despite owning the damn DVD.
That's right. I own the whole Dark Knight Trilogy. Never watched it.
Nope. Hear it's really funny, though.
This one's supposed to be hilarious.
Every geek I know likes this movie. And I like Chris Evans. A lot.
Why have I not watched this?
Geeks adore this one, as well. And I
would pay to watch Colin Firth read a grocery list.
Still haven't removed the plastic wrap.
I can offer no defense. None.
I think this one will piss me off.
But I still want to see it.
This is supposed to be adorable.
This one, too, with a side of hilarity.
Another Steve Carrell (you can never go wrong
with Steve Carrell) and it's supposed to be alternately
adorable and really, really depressing. I have to prepare for that.
That's the list of my ten shameful shelf-dwellers. What about you? What movie have you never watched that you really think you probably should?
