Let's talk movies, shall we?
2. Last weekend we also rented Inception, which I know everyone probably saw in the theaters except me. Everyone who said it is mind-blowing is right. I'm actually really glad we watched it at home because my husband and I kept asking each other questions and talking out loud. "Wait, are they dreaming?" "What about now, is this real or not?" "Do you get what's happening?" "No, do you?" Yeah, people would have been annoyed with us in the theaters.
4. When a friend invited me to see Tangled with her and her kids, I admit, I hesitated. Most kids movies put me to sleep. Okay, I have a few I love - Up, How to Train Your Dragon, and Finding Nemo. But, this, I don't know, it just didn't look that good to me. But my friend and her kids had already seen it once and were going back AGAIN, so I thought, wow, it must be good. And was it ever! It's one of those movies where the trailer really doesn't do it justice. It's really magical. And funny. Plus, can I say how fun it was watching her little girl get excited about the special parts? SO CUTE!! I loved the tower - wow! I want to live in a tower like that. Or, you know, have one in my backyard that is my writing tower. Don't you think any writer would just magically write better if he/she had a tower like that? My friend said if I liked it, I should rent The Princess and the Frog. So I'm going to do that. And make my teen boys watch it with me.
My husband said this morning we'd try and go see The King's Speech this weekend. I hope we do, I have heard such great things about it, and want to see it before the Oscars, since it will probably take some awards.
What movies have you seen and loved?
I want to go see Tangled. I also want to see The King's Speech (mmmm, Colin Firth). And...now I have to see Easy A.ReplyDelete
I turned Princess and the Frog on randomly one day in December, and me and my son (2-1/2) watched it. It was so good! My son mostly just liked the music parts (and now won't watch it again because he said it's scary, which ok, the bad guy is creepy, especially for a toddler). But I just thought the whole thing was so well done: visually nice, great story, fantastic music, entertaining. I feel like this movie didn't get enough attention when it was out, but hey, what do I know.
I quite liked Easy A and Princess and the Frog. I was the same about Tangled - didn't think it'd be that good, but it was! Liked it better than Princess and the Frog, to be honest.ReplyDelete
You will LOVE King's Speech. Saw it two weekends ago, and it was so good. Colin Firth is just wow. :)
Saw Black Swan. HOLY cow was it riveting. My boys won't see Tangled. I guess I'll have to wait for the DVD. My teen is obsessed with Tron.ReplyDelete
I was very impressed with The Kings Speech. It was a brilliant cast giving an understated story depth and power. I'm not an anglophile by any means but I was quite moved by it.ReplyDelete
Rosanne, we saw it The King's Speech on Sunday, and both my husband and I really enjoyed it. I loved how it was a story about friendship, at its core.ReplyDelete
