Tuesdays are my Sabbath

Tuesday March 9th

Tuesdays are my Sabbath

My movie marathon on this day is on Tuesday. I love going to the movies on Mondays or Tuesdays. Tuesdays especially if they are near a Best Buy. Since the dawn of home video, Tuesdays are a special day. This is the day new releases for video and CD’s come out. I’ve been collecting movie videos for a long time now. I started my DVD movie collection in January of 2000. It was then I started to phase out my VHS collection with the exception of some hard to find out of print VHS movies and a few porn tapes. Tuesdays have consistently been my favorite day of the week. In other words Tuesdays are my Sabbath, my day of religion sort of speak.

Since Tuesdays are my Sabbath, Best Buy is my church. Best Buy is my2nd home. I feel very at home there. I’m a proud Best Buy Reward Zone Member. They should pay me to visit them. I don’t even wanna guess how much money I have spent at Best Buy in my life time. My current movie collection sits at 835 total DVD / Blu Ray discs which include movies and TV series. This doesn’t count the multiple discs in some of these collections. I keep a spreadsheet of my DVD movie collection. I update each time I buy a new DVD or delete and entry if I sell one on ebay or give one away.

Today I was very excited when the Blu Ray was released for one of my favorite movies that came out last year, which was The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day . The original The Boondock Saints came out in 1999 and was and is a great cult classic. The sequel in my opinion is just as good if not better. I was stoked to get the sequel on Blu Ray. I see a mini Boondock Saints marathon in my future.

Ok, now onto the actual movie marathon for today. After my “jizz in my pants” visit to Best Buy, I headed to my favorite multiplex for a movie marathon. I was shooting for 3 maybe 4 movies today. The first movie on my list was the horror film The Crazies . In general I’m not a big horror fan. However I do make exceptions sometimes. I enjoyed the previews for this movie. It’s a remake and I always wanted to see the original. Plus I’m a huge fan of the star of this new remake that is Timothy Olyphant. I became a fan of Timothy when I saw Deadwood on HBO. Deadwood was famous for many things especial the resurgence of the words “cock sucker”. The Crazies was fun, but very predictable.

After a long piss and a refill on my large diet coke and popcorn the 2nd movie I saw was Cop Out . Staring Bruce Willis and Tracy Morgan as New York cop partners. The film was directed by Kevin Smith who had a bit part in Bruce’s film Live Free or Die Hard . Kevin is famous for films like Clerks, Mallrats and Chasing Amy. Critics have ripped this movie. Yes the movie was a little silly, but I thought it was funny and entertaining. It was just what I needed too. The latest string of movies I’ve see have been depressing, serious and emotionally charged, or a mind fuck. This movie was a funny escape. Plus it was rated R for language and violence. I need that too, heh, heh.

The third film I saw was Brooklyn’s Finest . I was back on the depressing, serious and emotionally charged train. Choo Choo! This movie stars Richard Gere, Don Cheadle, Ethan Hawke and Wesley Snipes. All of who were on top of their acting game here. I hope Wesley is on a comeback with this film. This movie is riveting, but very depressing. There is a small glimmer of hope at the end, but not much. The editing and story was great. The director of this movie is Antoine Fuqua. He is becoming one of my favorite directors. His most famous film is Training Day. My favorite of his films so far is Shooter. This director is the very cool, I like his style.

After Brooklyn’s Finest I was considering leaving. But I wasn’t ready to leave the theater just yet. In stead I decided to see the end of Avatar before I left. Since I’m only seeing part of this film I’m not counting it as a whole movie seen, just a partial. I came in on Jake Sully’s Braveheart freedom speech to the rest of his adoptive “Na’vi” clan. I’m glad I caught the end of this movie cause the final battle sequence is becoming on of my favorite movie experiences of all time.

I’ve got a mini vacation planned with Jane next week. So since I have this Friday off. I’m gonna get in another three movie marathon in. I’m looking forward to the vacation with Jane very much. It will be nice to get out of town for a few days. I haven’t been out of town on vacation in a long time. I wonder if there will be a movie theater nearby? :-)

    No more mind-fuck, depressing, serious ones for me for awhile!!! Looking forward to our vacation, too. I just realized that movies are for you what posh bathrooms and giant tubs are for me =)
