I know it's not right but we get to buy DVD movies at the local market on Wednesdays....some of which are just coming out in theaters in the states. It is amazing to me how good the DVD are quality wise and how cheap. But it is the only way we really can see many of the things that come out. We buy a DVD for like $25 pesos....so that is cheap...like $2 dollars US. I love movies and am so happy that we at least have a way to see them although I know this is illegal. I have no idea how they get these movies so fast. So recently we watched Lincoln, which I thought was good. I know many folks thought it dragged on in places but I loved the history aspect and what our country has gone through over the years to pass amendments and such. Made me go on line to see how many amendments there were and what they were for...very interesting....The one thing that really rang clear in the movie was that even way back then there was such fighting between the democrat's and republicans. The two party system seems to always have been screwed up. So very telling movie if you get a chance to see it.
Then last night we watched Hitchcock with Anthony Hopkins and Helen Mirren. I thought this also was good. Poor Hitchcock certainly struggled with his weight. He was obese all his life. This movie also made me want to search the internet to see more about his life and such.
So I hate that it's illegal to buy these DVD's but I am so happy I get to see these movies living in Mexico. Anyone else out there have any good movies to recommend that they have seen lately?
Hope all my sparks buddies are having a great day.
I really enjoyed my pizza yesterday.....to me it's the perfect splurge. Funny though I didn't put any weight on...but today we go out to eat with neighbors and friend to the village next to ours where they have the big grilled platter. So the weight gain is only delayed I bet. But as you all know, I will get right back on track after and try and lose weight to get under goal for the next splurge.
Have a terrific day.
