  • 05:24 It's been a while since I've watched a new gay romance movie, so I'm getting my fill just by watching a bunch of trailers. Whee!!! XD
  • 05:47 It may be just as well I don't have a roommate. I've gone straight past tired and sleepy to giddy. Whee!!! *puts on gay romance movie* Whee!
  • 07:36 Just finished watching "Weekend". Despite the drug use it was a good movie with a logical and respectful ending. *sigh* Now I'm wistful.

Weekend was perhaps as real as it gets for the movies.

I disagreed with all the seemingly extreme alcohol and drug use. I would like to think that that sort of communication and introspection shouldn't require the need of alcohol or drugs, but ... *shrug*

But the acting was superb and very believable. The use of silence and traveling between places gave everything more intensity. I could relate to the feeling of the guy at the beginning when it felt like he was among a dozen other people yet still felt ... lonely. I didn't feel like I was just watching two guys saying words of a script to each other, but that they actually felt and experienced them.

The movie brought back my days of idealist romantic notions. In a way it was a romance booster shot, like the "Christmas cheer booster" from the "Call Me Claus" movie. Maybe it is naive, but that doesn't mean I have to give up on the idea or reject the possibility completely.
