Weekend Fun!

Well, my camera needs a new battery and of course, it doesn't like regular batteries, I have to have a special Kodak something something battery. So, until I can make it to Wal-Mart (which is in another town for all of you who are blessed with big towns/cities) I will just have to use pics from the net.

This weekend was somewhat boring I suppose, but I loved it! We have been going, going, going the past several months every weekend, so I was pleased to just sit in my pj's all day yesterday and watch movies. I decided to give a critic's view (haha) of the movies that I watched.

First and foremost, I watched (minus husband and children) Georgia Rule. This movie is a definate chick flick which I absolutely adore chick flicks! It is about a girl who is unruly (Lindsay Lohan-imagine that) and her mom (Felicity Huffman) takes her to Idaho to live with her grandmother whom her mom hates. Of course, it brings romance and some skeletons come out of the closet only to bring this unruly girl and her mom closer. I give it 4 stars out of 5.



Second on the list was Are We Done Yet?. This is the sequel to Are We There Yet?. It picks up where the first movie left off. Nick (Ice Cube) and his wife (Nia Long) are expecting twins and decide to buy a home in the country. Of course, this home falls apart in all places when bought. I gave this movie a 2 stars because if you have ever seen Money Pit from the 80's starring Tom Hanks and Shelly Long, then you have seen this movie. I was very disappointed. My kids liked it though! haha





Third on the list was Perfect Stranger. This movie stars Halle Berry, Bruce Willis, and Giovanni Ribisi. It is about a girl who works for a paper in New York and her best friend from childhood comes up dead. The girl, Halle Berry, comes from a troubled childhood and the supposed best friend knows a secret on her and blackmails her into doing everything she wants. So, when the friend dies, they suspect this very wealthy and promiscuous man (Bruce Willis) of killing her. This movie is very suspenseful and definately has a surprise ending. I would love to have read the book if there was one. The language is pretty bad. They use the F-bomb frequently. I give this movie 4 stars.


Last, but not least I watched Disturbia. This was such a good and suspenseful movie. It definately kept you on the edge of your seat. It is about a boy (Shia Labeouf) who is on house arrest and he makes a habit of looking through binoculars at his neighbors. His mom had taken away all his tv, itunes, and such. Anywho, there is a serial killer on the lose and low and behold...it just might be his neighbor, Mr. Turner. This movie is filled with sadness, happiness, love and suspense. It is a definate must see for you thrill seekers. I give this movie 5 stars!!




So, there you have it boys and girls!! That is my weekend fun! Talk to you tomorrow for Tinseltown Tuesday!
