So many adventures. So few times.

My life is pretty dull. I play with a toddler, watch a lot of Yo Gabba Gabba and experiment with the crock pot. I have no bed time and I find humor in Laffy Taffy jokes. Conan O'Brien is my anti-drug.

Bad Movies with Buffy Club

The Moose has entered Kindergarten this year (AKA all day school) and Killer began 3rd grade, which has left me with... not as much free time as I expected while being a stay-at-home-mom. I’m still running around like crazy. I’m still catering to kiddo whims despite them being elsewhere. But, I’ve began something I’ve daydreamed of for years... 
Bad Movies with Buffy.

We have multiple movie theater chains in the region that offer discounted films on Tuesdays. Um, yes please? Combine that with Fandango VIP rewards (every 4 tickets = $5 off a film) and free popcorn and suddenly my world has shifted to R-rated cinematography.

Or, not. Maybe it’s a foreign film up for awards that has a cute lead. Maybe it’s a blockbuster based on a book.

All I know is that if they kids can and want to go see it, we won’t.
I’ve opened it up to friends - join me if you want, don’t if you can’t - and so far it’s been fascinating.

Sony Pictures
Week 1's viewing was Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, starring Brad Pitt, Leonardo DiCaprio and Margot Robbie (among a scattering of other big names including a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it cameo from Luke Perry) in a quirky, slow paced but entertaining story line in a “what if...” world from the brain of Quentin Tarantino. 

Annapura Pictures
Week 2 was Hustlers, based on a true story (but aren’t they all?!) chick flick hiding behind stripper crotch shots and JLo’s flawlessly tight [but I swear, toooootally natural.] umm... face. Seriously, even though it’s her show she still absolutely steals it. Lizzo and Cardi B make forgettable appearances throughout the first half and it definitely keeps you rooting for the bad buy, whoever that might be.

Material Pictures
And this week? Brittany Runs a Marathon. I have seen zero trailers for Britt, but it seems sweet and it has an R-rating so chances are there are at least some bad words to meet our strict “bad” criteria: either cheesy as hell, gory or bad-wordy.

And by strict, I mean that I made up the criteria about 30 seconds ago while typing it out, and all future choices are subject to my own very poor discretion. AKA we’re totally seeing Star Wars: Rise of Skywalker even though I’m sure I’ll see it opening day weekend.

You’re welcome.
