Thanksgiving and Movies
 

So tonight I ran out to the store and bought Cresents, mash potatoes and stuffing. I have turkey fillets, I figured I’d get a few more things for a classic dinner. This way I can cook a quick dinner up for myself if I need/want to. I bought a small Boston Creme for desert since it is what my mom usually gets for me. I don’t do pumpkin pie, we actually never did it in my house so I just don’t need it. Tried it once I think, I’ll pass!

More importantly, I bought movies! I picked up “Hairspray” tonight. I never got to see this in the theaters, so I was glad to get it. I love the original John Waters movie, love love love it. I own it, but it if comes on TV, I’ll still watch it. I saw the Broadway show years ago with the original cast, loved it. The movie? Loved it! It was so good. I just finished it and actually want to watch it again. The show took some liberties with the movie, and the new musical movie takes liberties with the Broadway show. A few numbers from the Broadway show were cut out, a few new numbers added in, the story was changed a bit as a result. Still a very excellent movie. I wasn’t too keen on John Travolta’s performance as Edna until the end number. Everyone else I really enjoyed overall.

I also picked up “Miracle on 34th Street” on DVD. I have it on VHS, but no VCRs really hooked up anymore. The DVD has the black and white and later faux colorized version. I figured what the hell! I’ll watch it after the parade on Thursday probably.

LOVED Hairspray. My two daughters and I went to see it at the movies and I bought it yesterday for my youngest daughters birthday. We watched it last night. It is just one of those movies that you can watch over and over again. I find myself kind of moving along with the music.

Have a Happy Thanksgiving.
