Movie Weekend

So it's Monday, a time to reflect on the weekend that past and somehow make it to Friday again. We did the beach thing on Saturday, Sunday was spent getting things ready for the week. My mom had to go back to work, so we had that to get ready for too. Which was a 4 hour drive. I always appreciate my mom's visits, because now more than ever you just don't know when it will be her last.

We watched 2 turds of a movie and 1 half way decent one. No Country For Old Men, what the hell? I realize that this was about the sheriff, but really, maybe he should have been in the movie more? The last few minutes of that movie were just stupid, if I would have paid the theater to see that film I think I would have demanded a refund. It was building up to a showdown between Anton Chigurh and Llewelyn Moss, but it really didn't happen. Maybe I'm missing something, but everybody else felt the same way... it's just messed up.

Cloverfield. Ok I get the premise of this movie, but it was just not my cup of tea. 15 or 20 minutes of filming a party, I think you could easily cut back on that, way back. And in the end, we really know nothing more about the monster. Does he destroy the earth, do we find a way to kill it, where is he from... nothing. Again I understand the premise, which is like Blair Witch Project, I just don't hold much esteem for those kind of pictures...especially when you look at everything these people went through, ultimately to not make it.

And finally we took the whole family to go see the Chronicles of Narnia, Prince Caspian. My two-year-old sat though over 2 hours of this movie, that alone should tell you something. I would say that the only thing this movie is lacking is an evil foe. I mean there is bad guys in it, but they seem to fall at a moments notice. Other than that this one is pretty good.

As you can see, it was a movie packed weekend. Too bad two out of three were stinkers, but hey, thats what classic film Friday is all about.

Gosh...I don't think you could have fit one more thing into your weekend!

Guess you had to go back to work so you could rest! LOL

I don't think so either. I'm really loving the publish date on Blogger.... I wish it would've come sooner.

But yes, there was a small price to pay for having such an action packed weekend... mainly sleep.
