As I try to make it through this little heat wave in my city (today, the heat index was like 101 degrees!), I wonder....does watching movies where the weather is the total opposite of what we’re experiencing help to provide an escape to comfort, if for only a few hours?
Since it’s hot where I am, a movie like “Hanna” would probably be more enjoyable to help cope with the current atmosphere than say.... “Summer of Sam.” What movies make YOU feel more comfortable in your environment? In the meantime, join me in continuing Heck Yeah’s 31 Day July Challenge.
8. How often do you go swimming?
Not very often. In fact, I never go swimming....unless you count that one time when I was at a cousin’s house for a party during my childhood....and I wouldn’t exactly call that swimming....more like, floating around in the water like Gabrielle Union and that drug smuggling guy in “Bad Boys 2.” They didn’t do any swimming at all while conducting business in the waters at the beach.
9. What is your ideal summer destination?
Well, I feel like I need to travel more to make a more informed and better choice when determining my ideal summer destination but for now, I’ll go with Six Flags Great Adventures theme park and The Boardwalk in Atlantic City. If this question is referring to ideal places to visit for a summer vacation or something, I’d choose Florida because I would like to go there one day.
Then again, Dustin Hoffman seemed to enjoy a summer full of relaxation and forbidden recreation.....all without leaving town in “The Graduate.” Maybe he’s on to something that we should pay more attention to. After all, summers at home are much cheaper and you get more bang for your buck.....no pun intended regarding “The Graduate.”
10. Describe your perfect summer day.
My perfect summer day includes air conditioning, lemonade, a DVD player, something sexy like “Unfaithful” starring Diane Laine, something action-packed like “Live Free or Die Hard” starring Bruce Willis and something dramatic like “Little Children” starring Kate Winslet.
11. What 10 songs do you have to have on your summer playlist?
The ten songs on my summer playlist are, in no particular order:
Motivation - Kelly Rowland
Let Me Go - Marsha Ambrosius
Impossible (from the “Mission Impossible 3” soundtrack) - Kanye West
Another Way to Die (from the “Quantum of Solace” soundtrack) - Jack White featuring Alicia Keys
Marathon - Raheem DeVaughn
Does She Know - Trey Songz
All the Boys - Keri Hilson
Firework - Katy Perry
She Ain’t You - Chris Brown
The Nearness of You - Norah Jones
12. Describe your perfect summer evening.
My perfect summer evening would include a visit to a movie theater to watch something that was just released so that I could still watch new films or streaming and old movie that I haven’t watched yet, on Netflix.....oh, and some water! No popcorn, thank you!
