Blog a Day 267of365: A movie that you used to love but now hate

I can’t remember if I’ve already answered this one but let’s just assume I haven’t.

I’m feeling rather down today. I shouldn’t really. I had a copy of the new Guitar Hero arrive out of the blue, I don’t have to go back to the day job until Tuesday night, I’ve had some (low) paid reviewing work appear and I’ve got a nice weekend ahead. I feel down though. I’m tired. I feel like I’m constantly tired. I’m nowhere near where I want to be in life and I don’t know how to get there. I’m fed up of my day job and desperately want out or for things to go back to normal there (they won’t), I’m quite bored of being single but not being single is much easier said than done! It’s my birthday soon, these things always bug me around then. It’s that silly ‘OMG I’ve reached x age, I must sort out everything in my life that’s wrong’ thing. And well….I’m whinging. I’m tired, I can’t help it. Well, I can of course but I feel like whinging.

Anyway, back to the topic.

The film that I used to love but now hate is Hot Shots – a fairly average spoof of Top Gun starring Charlie Sheen. It’s fun though, or at least it was. I used to watch it frequently. It would be the nice, easy film that would cheer me up whatever the ailment.

The last time I watched it was the night after my Dad died. Me and my Mum had stayed at my Aunt and Uncle’s the Saturday night as it felt odd to be alone. It was odd to be there and away from the house too so we returned on the Sunday evening. We had no idea what to do. Feeling numb does that. It was right to be home and it was good to see the cat, but now what? We decided we’d try to watch a film. Deciding which film was a tough one. Trying to avoid films that had a special meaning or any form of sadness was the main thing. So we went for Hot Shots figuring it was harmless.

We didn’t laugh at a single thing in the film. Understandable I guess.

Never watched it since though.
