Last year, Joel really wanted to see 2012 with John Cusack, mainly because he is intrigued by prophecy and then there are all the explosions. Well, I found it on the Netflix instant viewing the other day and thought it would be great for date night, even though we had just watched a movie the week before. When we were dating, watching movie rentals was our MO, so it's not surprise to me that when we don't have a specific plan that we fall into that decision.
I must admit that I have come to the conclusion that John Cusack is actually remaking Better Off Dead every time he makes a movie, except for the one Grace is Gone, that one was very touching. We went into the movie with the idea that we would mock it heavily, especially since we do not believe that the world will end in 2012 and Genesis quite clearly states that it won't end in a flood again.
Before the movie, we were actually able to check in with each other and share some stuff that has been getting us down individually. It was a wonderful time and I felt much better at the end of the movie than I did at the beginning of date night. It's nice to take time and state the biggest thing that is going on for you personally, without being concerned with being called a whiner.
