The Happy Nappy Bride

About weddings. About relationships. About the first year of being married.

See you at the movies October 28, 2010

Well, it’s getting to be about that time when work dies down and I’m able to spend more time doing fun stuff.  In addition to being about business (see previous post, lol!!), I love going to the movies.  Here are the one’s I’m looking forward to:

Red: This movie looks super cute!  It’s got Bruce Willis, Morgan Freeman, Helen Mirrin      (looking too good!)…a bunch of other stars.  It’s about former CIA agents who are trying to figure out why the CIA is now after them.




Megamind: I love a good cartoon and this one looks funny.  It has Will Ferrell, Tina Fey, and Brad Pitt.





Life As We Know It: Yes, I understand that we already know how this movie will turn out before it even starts.  Who cares?  I love a good romance and Katherine Heigl knows romance!  I’ll be there and I’ll be sure to say, “awww!”




Due Date: Robert Downey, Jr. (who I love!) and the bearded Zach guy from The Hangover.  I can’t really tell from the previews, but for whatever reason RDJ can’t figure out a way home to see his wife have their baby without Zach’s help.  Hilarity ensues.




For Colored Girls: It’s a Tyler Perry movie (which is a strike, sorry folks), but I’m hoping the all-star cast will overcome him.  Janet Jackson, Thandie Newton, Loretta Devine, Kerry Washington, Phylicia Rashad, Whoopie Goldberg…and more!

Are there any movies you’re fired up about?

*stepping up to microphone*  Okay folks.  It’s time that I come clean…and it’s not going to be pretty.  I, Dawn, *clearing throat* *heavy sigh* really like Lifetime movies.  There!  I said it!  And yes, I know that they are all variances on the same theme:

  • A high school girl has a huge crush on her hot teacher and when he doesn’t reciprocate, she goes super crazy.
  • An older married woman puts it on a younger man and when he tries to make it serious and she doesn’t want to, he goes super crazy.
  • A married man has an affair and when he won’t leave his wife, his mistress goes super crazy.
  • Sometimes they use younger folks as their subject (Young & Out of Control!…seriously, that was a theme one week); a young girl gets sick of getting teased and picked on and goes super crazy on her classmates.
  • Sometimes they use a holiday as a theme (like yesterday: Going Into Labor Day, all movies about ladies who are preggers).  I missed most of them yesterday because I had to work, but the one I saw?  Perfection!  A young couple falls in love, has a whirlwind romance, gets married too soon and then the woman finds out her hubby is super crazy and used her old boyfriend to impregnate her so that he could gain his inheritance.  Seriously…I am NOT making this up!

The common denominator?  Super crazy!  If there’s no craziness involved, then it’s not a Lifetime movie.  My name is Dawn and I’m here to say: long live Lifetime movies!
