the Movies

When I get off work, the first thing I do is watch ABC's The View. Today in the hot topics section they talked about how Hollywood seems to be playing up the glamour and glitz of Hollywood last night at the Oscars. They also talked about how Hollywood seemed to want to ignore the fact that there is a recession. And then Joy Behar brought up the fact that they did that during the Great Depression.

The actors/actresses thought if they made a brilliant, fabulous or stellar film that people would forget about their problems.

Well they did just that during the Depression. The movies did that for people. Their problems disappeared while they watched Scarlett fight for Tara and Rhett.

And they did that tonight for me too.

Going to the movies has been my chance to escape for as long as I can remember. For two hours or more I have nothing else to think about but what is on the screen in front of me. Often times I see the movie that I need to see too. I take something from everything I see whether it is High School Musical 3 or Titanic.

I saw Confessions of a Shopaholic tonight and it was just what I needed...green scarf and all.
