Randy and I love going to the movies. We recently went to see "Descendants" with George Clooney. I enjoyed it, but Randy felt like it was a total chick flick. He felt that the movie drug on to the point of boredom. I enjoyed the acting and the story line. I would recommend it with caution, since it would not be everyone's idea of entertainment. It was a little depressing.
Yesterday we took a chance and went to see "We Bought a Zoo". I felt like with Matt Damon in the movie, how could it be wrong? We both really enjoyed this heartwarming story about a widowed dad and his children. I would recommend this if you don't have to have "blood and guts" when you watch a movie.
Today we finished up our holiday movie going trilogy with "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo". I was prepared for a graphic thriller, which was pretty much what I got. The movie was 2 and 1/2 hours long and did drag a bit in places. The acting was great and the plot kept you guessing. Some of the scenes were disturbing. I haven't read the book the movie is based on, but I think I will soon.
The only movie that I wanted to see, but haven't yet is "War Horse". I will probably have to wait to rent it on RedBox when it comes out. And speaking of Redbox, we rented, "Sarah's Key", which is based on a book I read last year. It takes place mostly in France, covers a WWII theme, and has subtitles. I enjoyed it, but many would not. Randy talked me into watching "Warriors", which I thought I would hate, but really liked. It is about a dysfunctional family and Ultimate Fighting. The story was intense, as was some of the fighting scenes.
Tomorrow I go back to work after being off for the holidays. I think I have seen enough movies to take me into the summer!
