Let's go to the movies!

Let's go see the stars!

Ok, enough of that. I want to see The Lovely Bones. However, a friend recently pointed out that I may be disappointed and she is completely right. I tend to be disappointed in movies if I see them after reading the book. I loved loved LOVED the book and now am slightly worried that it won't live up to my already high expectations. Know what I mean? I'll still see it, it just might not be in the theater. It might be one of those I wait to rent via video on demand. Oh man, I love that feature from Verizon. One of the very few things I love about them. Ok, back to the topic at hand. I also want to see The Book of Eli. It looks good and Denzel tends to pick good ones. Other movies I want to see are: Sherlock Holmes, The Princess and the Frog and Leap Year. Judge me all you want for the last two but I stand by my decision!!

Now, on to movies I have recently seen. First, The Blind Side. Absolutely amazing. For realz people. Sandra Bullock was awesome, Tim McGraw is really starting to grow on me as an actor and the rest of the cast was equally great. But it was the story that was truly inspiring and wonderful. I love movies that make me cry in a good way. This one had me doing that more than once during. I also love good endings and I am really tired of the new trend in Hollywood to make movie goers depressed. This had a good ending and I feel like it was definitely worth my $8 ticket! I hate it when I waste the money to be given a crappy ending and feeling depressed afterwards! Secondly, I saw Avatar. I had no clue what it was about and thus had zero expectations. I really enjoyed it (however I saw it in 3D and kind of got a headache) even though I don't typically go for the scifi type of movies. Now, I'm not going to go see it again or scramble to purchase it when it comes out on Blueray but I did enjoy it and would recmmend it.

That's all folks!
