Remember back in January when I said I would watch all of Colin Firth’s movies and that would have to suffice as a New Year’s Resolution? If not, read this. Well, as with ALL New Year’s Resolutions, I promptly forgot about that “goal” about a month later. It’s not that I gave up really, it’s just that Colin Firth has made 52 movies (not including TV appearances) and only about 12 of them are in video stores (which are rapidly disappearing). So I watched all the ones I could find, which were:
A Single Man – so touching. I highly recommend this one
Mamma Mia – this was the first time I ever wanted to stab Meryl Streep
Girl with a Pearl Earring
The Importance of Being Earnest
Bridget Jones’ Diary
Bridget Jones’ Diary ll – or whatever it was actually called
Shakespeare in Love
Pride and Prejudice
Circle of Friends
The Accidental Husband – Uma Thurman, what happened to you?
Apartment Zero – So, I didn’t know this was about a serial killer. For life reasons, I could not watch it.
Valmont – also known as the movie Cruel Intentions was trying to be…but with wigs! The sexiest scene from Valmont is where he’s helping this 15 year-old-girl (just try to ignore that, mmkay?) write a letter to her lover, but then decides to seduce her while he’s at it.
Aside from getting Netflix, which I can’t really afford right now, I don’t know what will happen to The Year of the Firth. Should I call it quits or continue on until glory is mine?
