Gray is my favorite color, I felt so symbolic:

*insert the Counting Crows here*

It's been a rather gray day. I can safely say my mood has matched our lovely Memphis weather!

Tonight in Film I made it through my first Western (as an adult). I'd have to say, The Magnificent Seven (1960) was quite good. And it's not just because all the stars (cowboys) wear extremely tight pants (as discussed with another female classmate afterward) either.

It was interesting to watch this film after watching the "original" last week. Seven Samurai (1954) actually inspired The Magnificent Seven. It keeps the basic idea of the original and then makes it a bit more American with it's setting and ending. I would recommend watching both.

Another Reason I love October:

24) Scream! It's the perfect time of year to watch "scary" movies! I am not talking about the uber-graphic flicks which seem to be all the rage. A dark room, a blanket, and a bowlful of popcorn can be perfection with the right movie.

Some of my personal favorites include:
Halloween (1978)
Psycho (1960)
Scream trilogy (1996-2000)
The Grudge (2004)
Silence of the Lambs (1991)
Se7en (1995)
Carrie (1976)

and yours?
