So Many Movies.

I realized last night that, if my plans all work out, I'll be seeing five movies in the next eight days, most of them free screenings. My schedule looks about like this:
  1. a matinee of "Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs" on Wednesday
  2. a screening of "Surrogates" Thursday evening
  3. double feature of "Toy Story & Toy Story 2 3-D" on Saturday
  4. a screening of "The Invention of Lying" next Tuesday
In addition, Gofobo REALLY wants me to see "Bright Star" Wednesday evening; it's too bad I have no desire whatsoever to watch a romance about John Keats and Fanny Brawne. That's just not up my alley. (I just watched part of the trailer; holy cow, not my thing.)

The nice thing about seeing all of these movies? Well, aside from seeing all but "Cloudy" for free, it's that I've signed on with Dad Blogs to write a movie review column! I won't get pay, sadly, but I will get a bit more blog exposure, and I might be able to sit in the nice press sections at screenings. (Those seats are almost always empty.) The reviews I post at Dad Blogs will be longer, so I'll probably continue posting my terribly short reviews here.

I'm excited about writing a weekly (or so) column, and about seeing so many free movies in quick succession. I'm really looking forward to this week.
