First of all - you should all be very impressed that I was able to pull myself away from Beautiful Creatures tonight to blog...seriously hard to walk away from that book...it's very intriguing and leaves you wondering what is really going on. BUT as I've mentioned a few times before my desire for coffee in the morning overcomes all other things so I'm trying to get on a better schedule...umm...again. Clearly it didn't take the first time.
If you haven't noticed, I tend to ramble more at night. Sorry for that. Last week I was actually able to watch a few movies and while I know they are old and you've all probably already seen them, I still want to review them just in case, like me, maybe you have toddlers or a family or...perhaps a crazy need to write and be at your computer, that may otherwise cause you to be behind on the latest movies and things going on out there in the world. These movies are already out on DVD and probably have been for quite a while. Actually one of these movies I bought on Black Friday on Blu-ray for like 4.99. Seriously can't beat that price and I have to brag a little...it's the least I can do for venturing out on that day! So without further ado...here we go...
Oh yes - it was what you'd expect - high action, high drama and a few tasty Hugh Jackman scenes to keep the ladie's interested. The hubby and I were amazed at how buff he was for this part. And if you're a Lost addict like we are, you'll be entertained that Dominic Monaghan who plays Charlie is also in this. When I watch movies like this it's for the pure over-the-top entertainment of it all and it certainly didn't disappoint. Was it predictable? Definitely. Far fetched? Absolutely! Awesome? YES! But if you're looking for something deep or inspiring, well, this certainly isn't it.
Cute movie but I have to admit it was a little long and I couldn't find any good photos to post. This was ONE of my favorite scenes. The problem with this movie was that it had great material and some truly awesome scenes but it wasn't edited very well. You were distracted half way through and could feel that it was running on too long to hold your interest. This is never good for a movie watcher. Like reading, I want to be transported to another place and time...this didn't do it for me. It's hard saying that because I honestly believe there were some valid points and some life lessons that for alot of us women were really done well in the movie. Has anyone read the book? I wonder if the book was better...it usually is. My advice - this is definitely worth atleast one watch but don't subject your husband or significant other to this punishment and rent it instead of buying.
And with that - it's past my bedtime! I'll be visiting blogs tomorrow but mostly MIA in order to finish work on my lastest critique group piece! Yes the panic has set in! I received my first email tonight from a fellow group member whose material I get to read and critique for my next meeting! So excited yet the pressure is on to get mine done and sent out! How fun this process is going to be!
Happy Hump Day Everyone...well, almost...45 minutes and counting!
