I saw THE PRINCESS BRIDE for the first time Saturday night and although in many ways it was delightful (supporting roles, in particular), overall I was a bit disappointed. Buttercup was the most passive of princesses and there was an awful lot of torture and violence. Maybe all those fearsome and brave Disney princesses have taken the wind out of Buttercup's 1980s sails. There were scenes where she sat there mute for long passages. Also the romantic leads looked like twins, which I found troubling. I once dated a boy who claimed you should find a partner that looked as little like you as possible. Or maybe that was just his reason for dumping this brown-eyed girl.
Also rewatched ALL THE PRESIDENT'S MEN, where I got to see the good guys win. What a perfect movie that is. Still working on THE HANDMAID'S TALE, which keeps outdoing itself in the terrifying department. Loving TED LASSO on Apple TV.
Reading an old Ross MacDonald, written before the Lew Archer books. He sure knows how to keep the story moving forward. I was also reading a contemporary mystery but Ross just blew this guy away so I won't finish it.
So much snow and cold. I get my second shot Wednesday. Hope I can get there okay with this weather. No one has said what the procedure is if you can't get there.
How about you?
