Watching “Ghost” For the First Time (via Instagram Stories)

I know, I know. It’s 2017 and I’ve never seen the movie Ghost, which has been out for almost 30 years. I’d been putting it off mainly because I knew Patrick Swayze’s character dies (obviously) and I can’t watch a young Patrick Swayze without thinking of Johnny Castle from Dirty Dancing sooooo I just didn’t want to go through all that. But, it just came out on Netflix and this past Saturday was a lazy one, so I decided to go for it. I live-tweeted (what’s the Instagram story term for this?) it while watching because I knew I’d get made fun of for never watching… which I definitely did. Because those stories disappear after 24 hours though, I kept them just to re-live it here. Feel free to make fun as well.

I love musicals, I love Julie Andrews, I’ve just heard some of the songs from this movie (My Favorite Things & So Long, Farewell) a thousand times over the years and I just really never cared for them. I’ve seen the images of Julie Andrews twirling around on a mountain top and just thought it was her cruising around and singing about loving nature and music and shit. I’ve thought about watching the movie every now and then when I scroll past it on Netflix, but it wasn’t until I was on my long-ass flight to Thailand two weeks ago that I finally gave in.  Because so many people love the movie I was just curious enough, and on an 11 hour flight you have more than enough time. Why not watch it now?

I Confess: I was such a judger. I had no idea… [Read more…]
