As an unemployed citizen of these United States, I’ve been filling my days with two things: errands (boring) and applying for jobs (tedious), but since I have the weekend free I’m going to try to switch it up and go for a movie marathon instead of being responsible. Ricky and I have done a couple of these in the past. My favorite thus far was a zombie movie marathon in which we watched 28 Days Later, 28 Weeks Later, Dawn of the Dead, Day of the Dead, Night of the Living Dead, Shaun of the Dead, and Zombieland. Needless to say it was very romantic.
I’ve thought of three main marathon ideas.
1. Gangster/Mafia/Wise Guys marathon – Some possibilities include The Godfather, The Godfater II, The Godfather III, Casino, Scarface, Pulp Fiction, The Departed, Good Fellas, Reservoir Dogs, Snatch, etc.
2. Western marathon – Off the top of my head I’m thinking True Grit (the original), True Grit (the newer adaptation), Cat Balou, Cowboys and Aliens, Tombstone, The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly, High Noon, and 3:10 to Yuma.
3. Sci-Fi marathon – We have too many of these to choose from. We could do Star Trek, Star Wars I-VI, Pandorum, Alien, Aliens, AVP, iRobot, Family Guy: Blue Harvest and Family Guy: Something, Something, Something Darkside, among others.
Now I thought it would be fun to leave it up to my wonderful readers to determine the fate of my weekend. Which one should I do? Let me know! Oh and if it seems that people are opinionated or have great suggestions, I may post-pone the marathon until next weekend to get it just right.
On an unrelated note, I want to give a shout out to Kylie Kirkland who made these awesome underoos for me.
What are you waiting for? Buy your special lady friend (or yourself) a pair today! Who are we kidding, she could probably use a Pokebra too.
