Movie Marathon

Although Saturday was beautiful and we were able to spend most of the day outside, the rest of the weekend was quite rainy. It started Saturday night and hasn't stopped. So, Brett and I decided to catch up on some titles from blockbuster that we haven't seen. We rented movies and vegged Saturday night, Sunday night, and Monday (we played hooky from work).

My reviews:

1. Marley and Me: I read the book and it is such a great story. The movie is entertaining and I bawled at the end (of course) but I find Jennifer Aniston and Owen Wilson very unbelievable ads John and Jen Grogan.
2. Vicky Christina Barcelona: Wonderful movie! I love movies that are set in such scenic places that you get just as wrapped up in the locales you do the movie.3. Role Models: A decent and entertaining comedy. Not a 5 star hit, but entertaining and good for a laugh. 4. The Yards: Suspenseful enough for a Mark Wahlberg movie.
5. Changeling: still have ill feelings toward Angeline, but the movie is great. Shocking that it is a true story!
6.The Lodger: Based on a 1927 Hitchcock movie, certainly a B movie that leaves you with questions, but not bad.

7.The Lazarus Project:Weird, but OK. Not a lot to say about it because the plot has been overdone.
8. And last but not least, we recorded the Natalee Holloway movie off of Lifetime. Actually not a bad flick!

Gotta love movie marathons! : )

My husband and I were both bawling like babies when we saw Marley & Me. I never read the book, though I was going to. It just never happened!

I am so far behind on movies, it's sad. But I was happy to see that I'm not the only one carrying around feelings of extreme bitterness toward Angelina. Homewrecker.
