Seven Minutes

^^That's how long it took me to guess the dramatic twist in Will Smith's new movie, Seven Pounds.



I also laughed inappropriately at least seven times. Maybe I'm just a cynical, cold-hearted snake. It wasn't horrible or anything, just highly predicable. I heard some people sniffing, as if they were brought to tears. I was crying too, just tears of laughter. There was this piano music in the background, and it sounded like one note, then another note, and then the wrong note... repeat. Couldn't breathe during that part. Stomach hurt.

**Warning: Erin put a nice lil spoiler in the comments, so don't read if you would rather be surprised seven minutes into the movie.

You and the freakin snow ... I swear... It's snowed twice on Denver already fhs.

PS i'm back on the mainland (is the iPhone works again). We'll be home tonight. I'm disappointed to see no dedicatory post to me.

Oh my WORD!^^ That's how she re-enters the blog world?

I was recommended that movie by someone I know who said I would be very moved by it. I'm glad to know I'll be moved to laughter.

What, should I have been more gentle upon re-entry? My bad.

Did you write it in the margin of your ticket stub? I haven't even seen a preview for that. Another plus for having a TiVo and not watching commercials for movies that turn out to be crap.

I had the pleasure of accompanying Jenny to this one..yes it was my movie choice and she totally gave it away right away but I was ready to leave 6 minutes before that! All I know, without giving the movie away, is that if I kill a bunch of people in a car crash dont be expecting any of my body parts! What a weirdo

L--I smiled for the first time in seven days.

So, was that the first time snow blanketed Denver in 30 years?

Emily said...

Good to know.

Amy--I didn't write it on my ticket stub, but I did lean over and whispered it to Erin, and then we watched it all unfold exactly as I predicted. That's why I said it was predictable. Except for that piano music. That was unexpected.

You gize have no heart!

I haven't heard a thing about this movie, but based on the title I am guessing it is about a baby. Let me guess, black, and possibly starving? You really do have no heart.
Ding, ding, dink...that is the unexpected music. Bet you weren't expecting that!

Me+ Will Smith = predictable dreams for me. But I always like how they "unfold" soooo.... ::winkwink:::

I almost felt like I was reading my own imaginary post I wrote about a little movie called Twilight.

I didn't read the comments in case I want to be surprised. Except I probably won't see it until I get to number 50 on my netflix after it comes out on DVD. Since we have had nos.1-3 for the last four weeks and counting, I assume I will never actually get to this flick.

Thanks for the review though and I might actually see it.
