Mood: Movie Groovy

I like going to the movies. Experiencing a film on the big screen with surround sound and filling my belly with a mega-sized frozen Coke and a bucket of popcorn is always a treat. Sadly, it is also an experience that rarely made its way into my life in 2007. Last year, I saw 3 films:

* 300 (with Clayton, which I loved but did think there was way too much blood);
* Transformers (again with Clayton along with Penny and Dario – also loved the movie because who doesn’t love Transformers???); and
* Hairspray (with Danie; such a fun movie to see with someone who did not think it weird that I wanted to sing along to the songs nor that I spent most of the movie drooling over Zac Efron).

In light of last year’s dismal effort, this year I intend to visit the cinema more often and take full advantage of Tight-Arse Tuesday, when the tickets are cheap enough so I can still enjoy my frozen Coke and popcorn without taking out a bank loan.
