Settle down, settle down. I know how much these mean to you.
geeeesh ! ;-)
Went to the movie's Saturday. Didn't eat popcorn. Just sayin'
(yes, you can comment about how that is like an AA member having lunch at the friggin' bar...or someone with ODD getting out of a room with bacteria filled door knobs shaped like toilet handles) Damn. The challenges I face day to day.
Ok. enough of my ramblings.
We, like the rest of America apparently, went and saw :
Toy Story 3. HUGE fan of 1 and 2.
Andy's grown up, the toys are being put away, given away and thrown away as he heads off to college. And like any other toy that can come to life when we aren't looking...they get into trouble.
My opinion : JUST as good as 1 and 2. J said her favorite is still 1, but after discussing how the characters were just introduced in 1 and how we had never known toys to come to life like that, it might be those things that were swaying her vote. She of course agreed and we both settled on 3 is just as good as 2, but 1 ROCKED ! (there is a part with a bear that scared the SHIT out of my kids. they sat through the entire movie without running up and down the rows once though. I'd say they liked it too)
Avatar - yes. I KNOW I'm way behind and, like who hasn't seen Avatar ? sadly. me. and my wife....because she's not allowed to watch any movies unless she's in another state and even then I call her every 15 minutes because HELLOOOOO, let me tell you every single itty bitty disaster that happened today with exaggerated details and body and facial expressions, because damn it, you should be home helping me instead of kicked back in bed watching some movie that I can't review, eating licorice and drinking a diet coke.
ahem. I'm sorry I got off the subject.
Avatar is about a guy who goes to fight aliens/life on another planet. They are blue.
Sigourney Weaver is in it. (surprise surprise) and nothing rips through her stomach. Although when the blue guy runs with her in his arms....like something ripped from your stomach, it's pretty freaky.
My opinion - sci-fi. not my thing, but it was good. The special effects were awesome.
I always look for the deeper meaning in movies like this and Toy Story. I can read war, illegal's, pollution all over this movie. Avatar, not Toy Story. (although there was that part when Buzz speaks Spanish :)
For my gay peeps. Looking for a good time, rent. no no no...just kidding.
And Then Came Lola
A movie with a twist. If you've seen "Sliding Doors" with Gwyneth Paltrow my review might make more sense.
There are 3 scenarios playing out for this poor, has commitment issues but loves sex, lesbian. 3 different paths from one situation. Although she prepares for the upcoming scenes in the last scene which helps her progress in the future scenes. (whew)
Oh screw it. The acting is good the sex is better (for those of you counting) and just an FYI....it's not about sex, no, well it is. kind of.
There is tons of straight sex....it's all over Friends episodes, it's on...um...Seinfeld. Even MASH had sex in it. Ok, so that's the last time I watched TV. :) ha ha no seriously. We watch movies and shows with these passionate scenes between a man and a woman and barely notice because they are so common. So I'm just giving a heads up on the gay ones. cuz I know it can be important. These lesbian movies aren't rated on sexual content alone, although I do take that into consideration because we all know how a good lesbian sex scene can be disastrous if done wrong. and can IN FACT ruin the ENTIRE movie for me. I mean for people.
My opinion - Watch it. Kind of silly but...well, I already spoiled it for you. Great sex scenes :) ha ha
The Baby Formula - A movie about 2 lesbians who use science to make a baby together.
My opinion - We watched it for about 7 1/2 minutes and then turned it off to watch, And Then Came Lola.
yes. in my opinion. it WAS that bad. and we watched about 7 minutes too long.
That's it. I would have another one but Sydney wanted to get Fern Gully. AGAIN. it was either that or the Wizard of Oz and shit, we've already Netflixed it 5 or 6 times DAMN those kids for wanting a movie. :)
Any hew. Sorry I've been missing in action. Stiffled a little. and SO busy.
I have cleaned closets, steam cleaned floors, cleaned out the gay-rodge and kept my family fed and alive (barely)
I'm on a countdown to California. yes, we're going back. We have a Nephew getting married over the 4th.
The last trip was so much fun and I hope this one is too. My friend Liz is going to meet us at the beach to take some family pictures. I need you all to start praying now that things go well. You can have the best photographer but good lord with children like these. you get it. start praying.
It's 80 degrees today. I think I'll take the kids to the park. I hope you make the most of your 80 degree day, wherever you are.
