The first batch from Netflix
I have finally decided to join the world of Netflix after hearing so many things about it. Seems like a good way to go, so I signed up and told my roommate to order Bridget Jones and any movie he wanted.
Why Bridget Jones? Renée Zellweger is the love of my life. Why didn't I see it when it came out in theatres? Because it's a chick flick and I promised myself never to see another chick flick in a public place ever since the English Patient disaster. Will elaborate on it maybe some time in the future, but in a nutshell, I cried to that movie.
I cried when the guy with a disfigured face died.
I cried because I wished it had been me.
It was an aweful, aweful movie. Ever since then, I only see chick flicks in the privacy of my home.
Turned out that my roommate inadvertantly ordered the sequel Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason, not the original which neither of us had seen. Was a little bummed, but now I don't think it will be a bad thing to see the sequel first. We will relive the Star Wars experience and the feelings of exhilaration upon seeing Episodes I, II and III which brought all the pieces of the puzzle together and answered many of the unanswered questions from IV, V, and VI.
The Bridget Jones sequel will inevitably raise questions whose answers can be found only in the first one. I may even wait 5 years, and start the Bridge Jones Diary DVD at 12:01 AM if I feel really serious about replicating the Star Wars nirvana.
May the Force be with you.
