Movies... gotta love 'em.... or not!

Okay, the kids are back in school and I've been going to the movies a lot! Here's my round-up.

Julie & Julia
Loved, loved, loved this movie! It was very funny, funnier than I thought it would be. Beware, you leave very hungry. Which is a very hard thing to do considering you just inhaled a bag of popcorn!

District 9
I didn't want to see this one, but Brian and Collin went and said I would like it.... and I did! It starts like a documentary, and is that way pretty much through the whole movie. Set in South Africa, with some aliens landing there, and they don't know what to do with them, so they set up a camp, which turns into a city by itself. Lot's of aliens getting blown to pieces and a bit too much of the "F" word, even for me, and that's one of my favorite words. :-) If you can handle those two things, you'll like it.

This had some of my least favorite things in it.... it was a thriller, and it was in Antartica. Confusion and Snow... Yuck! I knew it was going to be bad when it opens with a naked girl in the shower for no reason at all. So if you would like to waste some money for no reason at all, or really like naked girls in showers... go see it.

Inglorious Bastards
I didn't think I would like this at all. It's pretty violent, but the plot it great. Basically the Jews getting revenge on Hitler.... c'mon you have to admit you would like to see that! It's one of those movies that almost everyone in it dies... so dont get attached to anyone, not that anyone is worth getting attached to.

Love Happens

Okay, this is advertised as a romantic comedy, and it's not. Not at all. My neighbor's mom came with us since it was the 8th anniversary of her spouses death, you know to kind of have something to take her mind off of it, and we are watching the movie and the plot...
A motivational speaker that helps people deal with their grief! So not a lot of laughs, I think I cried more than laughed. It was okay. It's a rental.

Today Brian and I saw...

The Informant
Was really looking forward to this, the previews were great, I love Matt Damon, and it's a comedy. Where can you go wrong? It wasn't funny. I didn't find it funny, and I think I'm a pretty good judge of funny. But judging how many times I laughed in what felt like three hours sitting there, I would have to say skip it.

Now all those movies you see a lot of trailers, this is by far the one I'm most looking forward to...

I have found with all my big screen movie watching, that when George Clooney is that big infront of you... nothing sucks that he is in!


Oh wait, I forgot one...

All About Steve

That fact that I saw it last week and forgot it, sort of says it all!
