I pause in our movie watching (actually I have not paused the movie, I add in the interest of strict accuracy) to make my Wrist to Forehead Sunday post. I am indeed about to swoon, from the head and humidity today. I don’t care for extreme heat, especially wet, sticky heat, but never mind that. I shall instead talk about the movies we have been watching, because I think I have pictures of all of them in my Media Library.
We began with Rear Window, an excellent movie to watch in the hot weather, because it takes place during a heat wave, in the days before air conditioning. At least, before lots of people had air conditioning; I’m too hot and tired to look up when it was actually invented.
We continued the Alfred Hitchcock theme with It Takes a Thief, which also stars Grace Kelly, so it was kind of a Grace Kelly theme as well. However, we did not continue with a theme, because we could not decide where to go next. Finally Steven suggested Lake Placid, as a fun, entertaining movie, and I agreed. We enjoyed it.
Lake Placid is a silly movie with did not get a lot of critic love, but I think it has good characters and an involving plot. I will say I think it is a cheap laugh to have Betty White saying vulgar cuss words, but that is really a small part of the flick.
The last one we have watched so far was Evil Under the Sun, a star-studded Agatha Christie romp. I do love my star-studded Agatha Christie movies. Perhaps we will watch another one next.
If this has been a dull blog post, I apologize. However, it is really, really warm in here and I need to get this laptop off my lap. Happy Sunday, everyone.
