Movies. Good movies. There is a huge difference between the two.
There are movies that I will never get tired of watching like “Groundhog Day”. There are movies which I loved and that one time made such an impression that I wouldn’t dare watch it again to spoil that impression, for example, “Dolls” by Takeshi Kitano. Or there are movies that are breathtakingly sad and they made me cry and so I wouldn’t watch them again as I cannot imagine going through that pain again like “Grave of fireflies”.
I like movies without a happy ending. There is nothing worse than a forced happy ending as life is so different from “they lived happily ever after”. Or a comedy that is way too cheesy with that type of humour where you feel embarrassed for the main characters and close your eyes or look away.
Bottom line, movies just like music have magic. They can mesmerize you, take you on a journey, teach you, heal you, make you happy, make you cry, make you remember your past, dream for your future and forget about your present.
I am very grateful that I can sit on a couch, make myself a cup of tea or have a glass of wine, have my husband sit beside me and then watch something together. Yes, this is one of my definitions of quality time at this point in time. You know what.. I am cool with it.
