The Hunger Games

So I saw The Hunger Games yesterday and I was not disappointed.  I LOVED IT!  So glad that I went.

So of course there were things that happened different in the movie than the book but it didn’t hurt the story.  It was beautiful and tragic and heartbreaking all rolled into one and it’s definitely worth watching.    The camouflage, tracker jackers and the games itself were great.

It was also great that my husband went with me!  It was the first date we’ve had in a long long time.  The last “date” we had was when we had a quick meal at Arby’s while we went Christmas shopping for our daughter.  We attempted a date in August but our daughter’s behaviors were real bad back then.  So the last real date has to be back in May for our anniversary.  Dang – we need to get out more!

Television Shows!

My daughter and I found Skunk Fu! on Netflix today and it’s so funny.  It reminds me of a younger version of Samurai Jack.

Oh my – there are ninja monkeys and killer bees and a rabbit with a very bad attitude.  It’s very funny and I love it.


Movie Night!

I declared last night to be a family fun night at my home.  I stopped by the Red Box and rented Puss in Boots. 

My daughter and I stopped at Walmart on the way home and picked up the large boxes of candy like you would buy at the movie theatre and I made sure we had microwave popcorn.  I called my husband and asked him to heat up some leftovers so that we could eat dinner right away and then start on movie night.

Puss in Boots was funny and enjoyable.  I didn’t particularly care for Humpty Dumpty but it was still an enjoyable movie none-the-less.  It felt good to laugh with my family. 


Movie Night

My husband and I watched Letters to Juliet the other night.  It had been on our Netflix DVD queue for quite awhile and it kept getting bumped down in favor of new releases and other movies that looked more interesting.  I’m typically not the type to rent or watch a romantic movie.  I’m glad that this one found it’s way to our home.  It had me in tears on several instances and was quite a lovely movie.  Typically I dislike movies where someone is engaged to someone and then fall in love with someone else.  In some way it always feels wrong to me.  In this movie that happened – Victor the fiance is busy opening is own restaurant.  Sophie is searching for her identity – a fact checker who wants to be a writer.  The story is very predictable and some of the acting is bad but I really enjoyed this movie (love it even?)  It made me cry which felt good (sometimes in our stressful lives just getting the tears out can be healing) and it made me smile.  It also made me appreciate my husband because he cares about me and has never treated me like the fiance did or the other man did.
