(Movie) Charlie Bartlett

I simply cannot remember laughing this hard at a movie in a long time. This is REALLY funny. Totally outrageous and will make you smile. It’s very cult classic-esque. Kind of like Ferris Bueller, I think… we’ll see, but this could easily be a classic. ====Product DescriptionThe kids at Western Summit High have “issues” and […]

(Movie) Virgin Territory

When I picked this one, I wasn’t expecting a lot. But I was pleasantly surprised. It’s like some really screwed up take on Princess Bride or something like that. Lots of nudity and it’s not anything ANY child should see, I think. It’s campy and silly, but the setting is beautiful. The main actress was […]

(Movie) Be Kind Rewind

I don’t get it. I was expecting something great. The amazing cast – the premise. It started out strong and then it… just petered out. The remake parts were hilarious and Tom and I thought those were great. The references to the 80s – great. But the last 30 minutes just kind of blew the […]

(Movie) What Happens In Vegas

This is predictable, over-the-top drivel. But it’s REALLY funny. It shouldn’t be funny, but it really is. It’s perfect for a Saturday night in when you just need to kick back and “be” for a while. Watching the battle is well worth the rental. I’m not a huge Cameron Diaz fan, but she was less […]

(Movie) Bucket List

Morgan Freeman does the voice overs. Isn’t that enough of a reason to see this? Not since The Shawshank Redemption has the opening sequence and voice overs have been I so pulled into a movie from the very beginning. Mr. Freeman has something – I don’t know what it is, but his voice just grabs […]

(Movie) No Country For Old Men

Wow. It’s so rare that I watch a movie when I’ve already read the book and I don’t know which was better. I should say I’m a huge fan of the Coen’s. But even then… wow. I listened to this book in May and really liked it. I knew the movie got all kinds of […]

(Movie) Good Luck, Chuck

I wasn’t holding out much hope for this one, but it wasn’t bad. It was hilarious in places. Not much romance, but funny and a little touching. The wing-man was really really annoying though, he was way over the top. The penguin lady was really endearing and the movie is well worth a Saturday in. […]

(Movie) Journey To The Center Of The Earth – In 3D

Earlier this month, Cassie went to spend the night with a friend and after telling Jamie that we were NOT leaving the theater – if he got scared, just cover his eyes and ears and deal with it – about a million times… Tom and I took him to see this movie in 3D. I’m […]

(Movie) Wall-E

I saw this earlier this month with the family when my niece was in town. Every one of us liked it. Of course, I am pretty sure that Pixar can do no wrong. I was surprised by how “deep” this movie is though. It spoke to our environmental problems and letting computers take over our […]

(Movie) August Rush

Okay, this is hollywood all over. Yes, I know. Even the description screams “gimme a break!” BUT… it’s still a beautifully filmed movie with absolutely beautiful music. I actually added the CD to my list to pick up. The kid does an amazing job of acting too. The script – eh – it’s okay. But […]
