Mr. Incredible and I had a chance to sit down and watch a grown-up movie together. A rarity due to 1) We don't agree on movies that often 2) I tend to hit a wall at 9:00 p.m. and fall asleep about half-way through the movie, and 3) We always seem to get stuck watching kids movies.
Recently we hit a Blockbuster that is going out of business and bought a bunch of movies. I can't remember everything we picked up, but Live Free or Die Hard was one of them. I could have sworn that we'd see this in the theater, but I was wrong. It is an awesome action movie, and Bruce Willis and Justin Long are hilarious!
My mom came over and we had all intentions of also watching a grown up movie, but instead watched Mr. Magorium's Wonder Imporium with Dash. It was actually a very cute movie and appropriately rated G. Dash was not so much into it and lost interest every time there wasn't a kid on the screen. I thought it was good and reminded me a little bit of the original Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory. One of my favorites. I was just happy to find a good family movie that's not a cartoon. I love animated films and all, but sometimes Mommy needs a break.
I also finally got a chance to watch Slumdog Millionaire. (This really was not a normal weekend--I don't usually get to watch so many movies.) I had put this on my wishlist at Swap A DVD some time ago and recently got it in the mail. Such a good movie, but many heart-breaking moments. I would definitely recommend it!
On deck are Mamma Mia!, Seven Pounds, and Disturbia. I'm also waiting for Adventureland to arrive!
Have any good movies I should add to my wishlist?
