It's been a number of months since I've posted, though I've seen tons of movies in that time. I've seen the usual ones in the theaters, but I've discovered a new found love of old movies - classics that, for one reason or another, I just haven't seen. It's almost a crime that I've missed some of these, but don't call the cops, because I'm finally catching up! Because of that, I've decided to tweak my blog a bit and include movies that you can find on DVD. Also, in December, I accepted a position as a host and producer at ReelzChannel, T.V. About Movies, so I have more reason than ever to continue writing about my life-long passion, movies. That's the main reason I haven't written - I've been super busy. Good busy, but definitely busy. Be sure to catch me on "Hollywood's Top Ten" Monday through Friday at 7:30 p.m. eastern. Each day, I count down a different category and show clips from some of your favorites. Look for shows, such as Car Chases, Movie Makeovers and New Classics. You'll also notice that this is a different blog address. In time, I hope to transfer all my old blogs to this address if you're feeling nostalgic. O.K., now on to the serious business at hand... today's movie! It's Tyler Perry's latest flick, "Why Did I Get Married Too?" The question should really be "Why did I stay in it for so long?" This movie deals with four couples, all going through something different in their marriages. Some are cheating, one is ultra-jealous, untrustworthy and a little bit crazy, one stayed with her ex even though he physically abused her and they're all lying in one way or another. I'm a proponent of making marriages work and not giving up too easily. I think a lot of people just throw in the towel and don't even try to fix bad marriages. I mean, look at our divorce rate... but on the other hand, if it's violent, if you're being unfaithful and if you feel you need to hide stuff from your spouse, is it worth it to stick around? Many people say they're doing it for the kids, but don't you think it's healthier for children to grow up seeing their parents happy and apart, then miserable and together? I don't know. You tell me.
