So we checked this movie out last weekend and I am now just getting around to talking about it. I really liked the movie and it was visually pleasing. The effects with the Stone Aged animals was awesome! One can only imagine that is how they once looked when they walked this planet. It stars no one with any big name which is perfect. The story is pretty predictable boy meets girl, they fall in love, then boy needs to go on a quest to rescue girl. I personally like to sometimes go to a movie that is not going to make me think to hard but, will keep me entertained.
I am also changing how I do my movie list. I figure since it is ever changing and growing, that once I see a movie and comment on it, I will remove it from my list.
Maybe I should have titled this blog....My adventures in Movie watching! Seriously, we go to the show probably more then the average person and then rent stuff as soon as it comes out. Usually, we rent stuff we either missed at the show or didn't think was worth spending the money to see at the show.
Besides what I have already listed as movies seen this week. I am going to add a few more...lets get to it!
American Gangster...Much better then I thought it was going to be. A long but very entertaining movie. I can say that I didn't love how the ending played out. I think they made the Denzil Washington character look like a rat.
Rendition...Again another good movie. If you like movies about the political side of the war on terrorism. I love how all these movies coming out recently make the US looks like a bunch of asses. BIG SURPRISE THERE! I mean I know we like to act like we don't do shady things but, who really truly believes we do everything on the up and up.
Margot at the Wedding....A pleasant movie about relationships between sisters. It stars Nicole Kidman, Jennifer Jason Leigh and Jack Black. Not at all the type of movie you would expect Jack Black to be in but I did like his performance. It is a good little movie that I think never really had a chance at the box office.
Oh and on my plane rides last week I was able to that Dustin Hoffman movie about the toy store....TERRIBLE! Also got to see Martian Child...another one I wouldn't waste my time seeing.
Now on Saturday, Wayne picked out going to see Semi Pro. He usually doesn't like seeing comedies at the theater but, thought he would give it one last try. I thought the movie had some funny parts and was laughing out loud. He of course hated it and was mad afterwards. If you like Will Ferrel movies, then you will like this one. It's not Old School but it is funny enough to spend the time to see.
So after the movie, we met up with my brother, sis in law and baby Maggie for dinner. I haven't seen her in like 2 weeks. What a difference it makes. She is like reading actual words. I am so nervous for them. She isn't even 2 yet! I think we are all in for a rude awakening very soon. She also knows a bunch of new words but the best one she said was April! YIPPPEEEE! I finally heard her say my name. OK, we all know I'm a dork but I had tears in my eyes,
A place for me to ramble on about random stuff that is going on in my life. While on this journey, I'll share the latest on music, movies, and everything else that touches my life. Hold on....It might be a bumpy ride!
