Oh wow, out of the house and for fun!

I did something yesterday that I haven’t done in a very long time.

G and I went to a movie.

Actually, we went out to lunch and then to a movie. We do go out to lunch at least twice a month but it’s been ages since we’ve gone to a movie.

We went to see the new Pirates of the Caribbean movie and had a blast.  If you haven’t yet had the pleasure of seeing it, make sure you sit through all of the credits, there’s a surprise at the very end.

They’ve redone the multiplex theater we usually go to (yes, we’ve not gone there in a long while.) The theater we were in only seats 61 people and the seats are so comfortable I wanted to bring them home.

Jack Sparrow YUM

A quick movie review


     I bought the Avatar DVD today and we watched it tonight.  We both loved it.  DH and I agree it’s a movie worth watching repeatedly.

     The FX were great.  The story drew us in and had us rooting for the natives and booing the soldiers.

     There was plenty of action to keep DH happy and enough story to hold my interest.  Rent it, buy it, enjoy it.

Sherlock Holmes movie


     If you are a fan of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes, do not walk but run to the theater and get ready for a good movie.  G and I went to it today and we weren’t disappointed.  Now I can’t wait for it to come out in DVD so DH can see it.  He can no longer sit comfortably in a theater.

     This Sherlock Holmes is not one of those sanitized Hollywood versions we’ve all seen.  This movie runs closer to the books.  Sherlock Holmes is truer to the character Doyle intended.  If you want Basil Rathbone, don’t go see this movie.  If you’re looking for a foolish, doddering, and fat Dr. Watson, don’t go see this movie.  The movie is gritty, action packed, and definitely not a cozy.
