Movie Night(s)

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?

  1. J & I are making our way through the Academy Award winners. We are almost done with 1980-present! And I will be posting reviews, don't you worry:)

    I loved Slumdog Millionaire, but I'm also a little obsessed with India. Also, Seven Pounds was strange in my opinion, but made me think. We just saw The Hangover and Paranormal Activity (decided to break out from the old movies) and didn't really enjoy, even though they got good reviews.
