We subscribe to Netflix. We like to hunker down with a movie and microwave popcorn on Sunday nights, an escape before the hectic work week begins. Yet sometimes, a movie we've ordered sits unwatched on the kitchen counter for weeks. Once we even cancelled our subscription.
But, for us, the week between Christmas and New Year's is all about going out to the movies. So far we've seen Invictus, (Morgan Freeman is wonderful as Mandela) Broken Embraces, (anything directed by Almovadar and starring Penelope Cruz is worth braving the cold) and Avatar (That one was for Peter, but I'm a good sport). We'll see La Danse on Sunday and sometime between now and then we'll fit in It's Complicated. After that, it's back to Netflix.
Happy New Year.
