7 pounds

i'm not too proud to let you know that i cry at sad movies. i've been ridiculed by girlfriends at times, but i can't help it. i'm a conundrum, a renaissance man of sorts. i'm emotional yet logical, i'm a romantic yet a nerd-at-heart, i write yet i'm an engineer. i make an emotional investment in movies if they are worthy of it. that being said, i think "7 pounds" is an excellent movie. the problem is, i shouldn't watch it with colleagues around on the way to work. i watched it this morning on my iPod on the way to work (yeah, it takes me 2 hours to get to work, YEA EGYPT!). toward the end of the movie, it was getting hairy. i had my sunglasses on, trying not to blink so my lachrymatians would not fall down my face. how goofy would that look? a 2 manly-men engineers looking over and seeing me crying at a movie. googly! i need to think ahead better. my next movie venture is a re-watching of "labyrinth", and i KNOW that one won't make me cry. back to the point, if you haven't seen "7 pounds", i recommend it. check it out. i must got find a tissue.

I want to get it as soon as it is released. Still not totally sure what it is about though.

Good job on crying, and if your fellow engineers are heartless, then that's just too freaking bad.

You're a good egg.

You know I feel your pain on this one. I couldn't even keep myself from tearing up at He's Just Not That Into You. I mean, COME ON!!!

7 Pounds made you cry? If every sad, overly-pulled at the emotional center of the brain movie ever made and put those essences into a movie...that is what 7 pounds is about.

It was tooooo over the top. Will Smith with his bulging, glossy, water eyes looking like that cartoon puppy looking up at a stranger wanting fed.

It made me sick.

You want to watch a really good movie that is super-emotional? watch "Dancer in the Dark" starring Bjork.
