Today is day 3 since I’ve had my second Bunionectomy and Osteotomy surgery on my left foot, and I’m doing pretty well. I’ve been taking my antibiotics as prescribed and my pain meds if needed. I try not to take my pain meds cause I don’t like how they make me feel, but sometimes the pain is a little too much to tolerate.
My extreme pain meds are the strongest ones you can possibly get and once they start kicking in, about an hour later for me, I start to feel like the room is spinning, my eyes are heavy and closing, I’m just loopy and drowsy and not all there and my speech starts to slur like I’m on drugs. Well, … I basically am x)
Since I can’t go anywhere or do anything or barely move around my room without feeling sick like I’m about to pass out, I’ve just been in bed watching movies on my laptop and falling asleep here and there. So I thought I’d share with you the movies that I’ve been watching since I’ve had my surgery.
Here are the movies I’ve watched so far, complete with their original movie trailers(:
1. About Time
I hesitated on watching this one since the previews didn’t seem to interest me, but I decided to watch it because it has Rachel McAdams in it and she’s definitely one of my favorite actresses. And I was pleasantly surprised by this film. I really enjoyed it. It was funny, cute, sad, and just all around a good film to watch. I thought it was an almost perfect film(:
2. Fast & Furious 6
Big big fan of all the previous Fast & Furious movies so I had to watch this one since I didn’t get a chance to see it in theaters. It definitely delivers with the explosions and the car chases. I’ve always loved these movies and this one was just what I was expecting. In a good way, of course.
3.The Bell Witch Haunting
This movie is just as bad as all of the Paranormal Activity movies. Yeah there’s a couple ‘jump out at you’ startle you scares, but that’s it. There’s really nothing to it. I’m also not really a fan of ‘documented’ or ‘found’ footage type movies. They generally just suck. And this one definitely sucked. And I almost peed myself from laughing so hard at one of the dates they put down. I took a photo of it. ‘January 21th…’ Enough said x)
Okay, am I the only one who thought this movie sucked? Like really, reallllly sucked. This movie was just terrible to say the least. Freaking terrible. Tragic even. I didn’t like it at all. It was strange, awkward, tedious, annoying, and just outright boring to me. Most of the time the guy’s just lying in bed talking to his computer. Nothing about this movie stood out. So it’s weird when people say it was beautiful and heartfelt and I’m sitting here like, ‘ wtf we obviously didn’t watch the same ridiculous movie’. But hey, to each his own.
Honeslty, I thought this movie was cute, but not much else. It’s just what you’d expect from a recent Disney movie, and that’s not a compliment. They’re all the same now if you ask me, and this one is really nothing special. It’s alright.
Those were some movies that I’ve never seen before and wanted to check out.
And now, here are some other movies I’ve watched within the last few days of my surgery that I’ve already seen before and just wanted to watch again(:
1. Scooby-Doo on Zombie Island
Possibly my favorite Scooby-Doo movie of all time. I can always watch this movie and never get tired of it. Most of the time I find myself narrating the entire thing x) And I like the music in this one. Lol
2. Evil Dead (2013)
I saw this ‘remake’ in theaters with my best friend Michi and I enjoyed it. There was definitely a lot of blood and gore, which can sometimes kill the movie, for me, but overall how the film was shot and put together I thought was pretty cool.
3. Dead Silence
The first time I watched this movie was with my cousin Kehly and we were staying over our gramma’s house. We both really like this movie and since it was like 10 ‘o clock at night when we watched it, we definitely squealed like little girls a couple of times x) Our gramma was probably like WTF. Lol
This is a Japanese horror film that my cousin showed me a while ago and it’s definitely a good one. Actually a lot of the Japanese horror-thiller films are much better than American made horror movies or American remakes of them. The Japanese horror films are more of a movie mind game, which is a factor I LOOOVEE about movies like this. They make you think. I really like this movie and you should definitely check it out.

You might have seen the reoccurring horror, thriller, suspense genres in my list of movies. That’s because I really do enjoy those kind of movies, but only when they’re done right. Some of them seem to mainstream and predictable and just dumb, e.g. the Paranormal Activity movies for me, or boring and ongoing where nothing even happens. I’m just really picky about my horror films. I really like the psychological horror films that make you think about what’s happening and actually figure it out because there’s something more to it, instead of just ‘watching’ it in front of you or watching a slasher film with nothing but overly bloody bodies and random naked women for some appeal. There has to be more to it for me.
Anyway, I’ve been watching a lot of movies so maybe I’ll make another movie boredom post about the following movies I’ll watch after posting this.
Have a great day, everyone!(:
And be sure to check out some of these films(:
