Movie Monday

Movie Monday will be a recurring feature. It might not be every Monday, but I enjoy movies and when I take time on the weekends to watch TV – it’s usually movies. We discovered Redbox sometime over the past year and I love it dearly. There are many movies that I’m the only one in my house who is interested in seeing… and ditto for the kids. Then there is the teen and the friends who have continuous slumber parties and need entertainment. Movie binges are common occurrences in our world. This weekend was no exception. I watched..

It’s Complicted (2009) – Redbox – I completely enjoyed it. I love Meryl Streep in almost anything and this seemed like the perfect roll for her, add in Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin – it was all around good movie, good story and well worth my time. I’d watch it again.

Dear John (2010) – Redbox – I’m weird that way – let me explain - I won’t read Nicholas Sparks, but I will watch the movies. Reading is too personal – I’d be too emotionally involved and my moods would flow with the characters for days –but I can watch the movies and remain uninvolved. It was okay, I’d read several book reviews so I knew a good deal about the story. Not the ending I like and I don’t know if it was true to the book or not.

Free Willy: Escape from Pirate’s Cove (2010) – Redbox – Picked up for the little one – it was okay. Not as good as the first – and I’ve not seen any between.

Death Sentence – (2007) Cable – Watched with the dh – Kevin Bacon, Kelley Preston – um, no. I think we both gave up on about an hour in – but well – the sickness is to watch til the end – what there was for an end. Ick.

Taligadia Nights (2006) Cable – Gag, I watched it against my will – I was out voted. Waste of time, except I cooked and caught up on email.

Incredibles (2004) Cable - Viewing number seven hundred with little one.

Toy Story 2 (1991) Cable – Ditto!
