So, I’ve had my younger brother visiting from college since Friday before last (yay Spring Break!), and I’ve just returned from dropping him off at the airport. Hence, I’ve been watching movies in lieu of blogging about them. We watched a ton of movies, let me tell you. It would take me a long time to come up with a full list, but we probably averaged at least 3 a day the whole time he was here.

Mostly we watched favorites of mine that I own and that he hadn’t seen. Some I have seen many, many times (like The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada and The Graduate), some I had only seen once before this week (like Gone Baby Gone, which I got from Netflix). Some movies we watched just for fun, like Little Miss Sunshine, The History Boys and Shaun of the Dead. Others we watched because they are so worth seeing, like No Country for Old Men, Apocalypse Now and Little Children. Most, at least in my opinion, fell into both categories, like Magnolia, Pulp Fiction and Run Lola Run. We also watched Gattaca, Junebug, The Red Violin and . . . lots of other stuff.

I guess for me, this was kind of an ultra-condensed version of many of my most fondly-remembered movie-watching experiences of the past 3 or 4 years, and something I have sorely missed since I graduated from college myself. All that to say, you should now be returned (more or less) to your regularly-scheduled blogging.
