Today's writing prompt:
"Mom? Can you pick me up? I'm at the hospital."
I'm not sure if anyone is actually using the writing prompts, but I like making them. They help me get my creative juices flowing.
This week's 10 on Tuesday topic is about movies I'd like to see in the theater. It's good, because there are at least 2 movies coming out in the next few weeks that I want to see.
1. Harry Potter. I didn't like what they did in the last movie, because I felt like they gutted the plot. There might be more of it there, but we haven't rewatched the last movie yet. I feel like I need to see this through.
2. Tangled. I love the ads I've seen and I love fairy tale retellings. Rapunzel looks like she has a lot of spunk, which is a lovely change from the often insipid women seen in fairy tales.
3. Of course, I don't need to see new movies in the theaters. I would be happy to see Princess Bride in the theater.
4. Or Dorkness Rising. Nope. It is not good theater. Heck, it isn't even good acting necessarily, but it is very quotable and completely hits the geek funny bone over and over again.
5. It would be a lot of fun to have a chick flick night with all of my friends (or at least the womanly half of my friends) in the theater. We could watch things like Ever After and Never Been Kissed and Four Wives Club and maybe something new to me, because my movies are like my books. New ones are few and far between.
6. In terms of probably the silliest thing I would want to see might be Robin saying, "These are really ugly shoes." Heck, probably any of the Muppet Classic Theater, because they are fun and pretty short. I also really liked the Gotta Get that Name song, because I'm the simple, happy weasel.
7. I wanted to see the Last Airbender movie, but never got around to it. I think that one is still on the list, though I will obviously be seeing it on Netflix eventually.
8. Star Trek. I liked the last movie, and rewatch it fairly regularly. I would happily see it in the theater again for the special comraderie that is mostly achieved when watching a geek show with tons of other geeks. That is one of the reasons why opening night is often so fun.
9. Musicals. Sondheim has my particular brand of mental written all over his works (didn't you know that Sweeney Todd is a Thanksgiving musical? It is all about food!), but I would love to see a movie version of Avenue Q.
10. A concert. It would be great to have a 100 people who love to sing all doing a sing along of Handel's Messiah or some other known work in a movie theater. The acoustics are usually pretty good and the screen can have both the image of an orchestra playing and the words on the screen like in karaoke. It would be a lot of fun.
