Atonement

It might have been the hectic day I had, I dunno. It could also have been the slow pacing of the movie Atonement, it's hypnotic score or the way the movie is lit. But my eyelids were starting to droop.

"Do you like the movie?" Mrs. Film Geek asked, herself rivited to the screen about a quarter of the way into the flick.

"Sure," I replied. I think.

I moved over to the love seat where I generally watch movies I know are gonna put me to sleep. The love seat's comfortable, after all. Soft, and warm and cozy...




I felt her hand on my shoulder. "It's over," she said. "It's time to go to bed."

"Was the movie good?" I crossed my fingers and hoped I hadn't missed a masterpiece.

"Yep. Loved it. It was great."

Good. So was my nap.

Oh no, that bad? I've really been wanting to see this movie, in no small part because Ms. Knightley is in it.

Hey Redzeppelin: Really, my wife said she loved it. And what I saw was very, very good. I think I was just tired...:)

It was an amazing story. A bit slow paced, but an amazing story.

TFG: Now look what you've done. I dodn't know whether it's better for sleeping or watching. If the wife thought it was good, I suppose I'll watch it.
