1. Due Date was the first movie that Nick and I watched this weekend. Pretty sure I laughed the entire time. I have only seen Zach Galifianakis in a couple of other films, and he was pretty hilarious. Also, who doesn't love Robert Downey Jr.? Because, no one. Just saying. I won't give too much away if you haven't seen this one yet, but it's about the hilarious journey across the country (by car) of a soon-to-be father and an aspiring actor who were thrown together after an awkward mishap/meeting at the airport. I highly suggest it if you're looking for something with not much depth but a ton of hilarity.
2. Love & Other Drugs is the part of my weekend where Nick bows out. Because sometimes? He is a baby. And refuses to watch anything girly, ever. And if I do get him to (by trickery), he complains and makes faces and sleeps the entire time. So. I watched this one solo on my computer with headphones, and it was worth not having the boyf making jokes the entire time because this movie IS AMAZING. It's the story of a tortured boy trying to find his place and becomes sucked into the drug rep world who meets a tortured girl who is living with stage 1 Parkinson's. They fall in love. Seriously? Besides the fact that you get to see the gorgeous Jake G. in little to no clothing multiple times during the movie (and also Anne Hathaway, but at this point, who hasn't seen that? Girl's not shy.) it's the love story that evvvverrrryyyone wants a piece of. Also, it's funny sometimes, and heartbreaking, and adorable. So please, watch it.
3. Blue Valentine was the third flick on my list for the weekend. Another one that I watched solo on my computer without the boyfriend because he would have hated how sad it is. I'm sure you've heard (or witnessed) that this movie is depressing. And it is, but so worth it. Pretty sure that Michelle Williams and Ryan Gosling were the best picks to play these parts. Basically, it's the story of a marriage. That begins with love and happiness and amazingness and turns into something less desirable. Basically, it's real life, in a lot of ways. Obviously not for everyone, but I know there are parts of this movie that I could identify with, even though that's a little sad to admit. I won't give too much away about the ending, but this isn't one I'd watch if you need a pick-me-up, but it's so worth it. I loved it.
The end. I am pretty sure all of these movies are going on my Amazon Wish List because I can't afford to buy them all at once but I really really need them.
