Final Film for Paris in July
I hadn't seen this film since it came out during my sophomore year in college and re-watching it made me realize that I had really bad taste in films when I was younger. I'm utterly serious. This film is chock full of stereotypical, under-developed characters, over the top antics, and werewolves - how does that not equate to a bad movie? But I loved it all. Especially, getting to see Paris in the background and laughing at the absurdity of this film. It was such a fun treat to watch - it really made a depressingly grey rainy day much more bearable. Plus, it made for such a blast from the past experience that I was in nostalgia mode for the rest of the day. I actually listened to my old Bush CDs and sang aloud to the songs at top volume. Crikey, I loved that band.
All in all, the film was a fun diversion that brightened my day. Of course, any chance to see Paris is fun - even if it is via an old, cheesy film like An American Werewolf in Paris. As for Paris in July, I truly enjoyed reading everyone's posts this year - they are as always, a delight to read. And now, I'm off to read me some more short stories by KV (Kurt Vonnegut) - I'm in the middle of Look At The Birdie and absolutely LOVING it! Au Revoir!
