I love a good girls night, and last night did not disappoint. I had two very sweet teenage girls over to watch movies with me. Everyone was gone, but Drew and his friend Andrew were upstairs having a guys night watching scary movies, and we had the downstairs.
The girls came over around four, and ate dinner with us (nothing fancy, just hot dogs, Rotel, and cookies and a dessert that they brought), then we settled in to watch two movies.
The first was La La Land.
This is the third time I've seen it, and I still love it as much as the first time I saw it. I'll say it again, though, you have to LOVE musicals to enjoy this movie, and I do. Many of you do NOT and you will hate it. It's a movie that is full on musical~they break out into song and dance throughout.
I LOVE THIS MOVIE, and I don't know why I don't own it yet. I know the ending is not expected, but it's still so good. It's all the emotions. I feel like I screamed at some point in the theater when I first saw this movie....I know I gasped, at the very least.
After this one, we watched Me Before You.
Do not hate me for watching it. First off, I read the book over a year ago. I had no idea what it was about, but seeing that the movie looked good, I read it, and then proceeded to throw it when I finished it. I thought to myself that I'd see the movie, because Hollywood always changes the ending. Right? Wrong. The movie ended the same way. I know it's super controversial, because...
...Will ends up committing suicide with medical help. (There's a name for it, that I cannot think of...but there was a story in the news about a girl doing the same thing a year or two ago.) And yes, I am totally against people playing God with their own lives, and do not think that's right. But this movie was really, really sweet right up until the end. I'm glad I watched it, because I liked it. I told the girls that it's wrong to do that, but they already knew that. The actress who plays Louise in the movie is PRECIOUS. I would love to see her in more movies. I think she made the entire thing.
It was a fun night! I love girly movies, and I never get to watch them.
I found out last night that I can watch several really good movies right now on Amazon Prime, and that's how we saw Me Before You.
I might "go to bed early" again tonight to watch another one. ;)
I hope your day is great! I am going to plant myself at the pool today, so I'm excited about that. Love to all!
