Movies, Movies, Movies

We watched 7 over the holiday. That's what happens when you live so far away from your family.

Kung Fu Panda *****
Excellent! The overall theme was that you are special just being you!

Speed Racer ****
Not what I expected. Definitely a "kid" movie, though they said the *a* word a bit too much. Very good, except for that.

WALL-E *****
Another excellent movie! It does a great job of showing us how lazy people become the more dependent they are on computers. Very funny and heart-warming.

We did let the kids watch both of these movies. You really have to be careful that you don't pick up the "unrated" versions of these movies.

Hancock ****
His super powers are like Superman, but Hancock doesn't hold Superman's hero status. Very funny. I'm pretty sure that we had the "rated" version. The *a* word is said quite a bit, and there was one almost sex scene. Other than that a very good movie. Oh, and there is a twist that I NEVER expected.

Drillbit Taylor ***
Funny. Three high school freshmen hire Drillbit to be their bodyguard. There was some language and a few sexual innuendoes, but the kids didn't pick up on it.

We watched these after the kids went to bed.

21 **
College kids go to Vegas and count cards. I can't say that I was thrilled about the movie. It was ok, but I kinda wish I'd waited until it came on TV. Oh, well.

Don't Mess With the Zohan *
It's not the worst movie I've ever seen, but it's pretty close. If this was the "rated" version, I can't image what the "unrated" would have been like. Mike loved it though, so I guess it's really a matter of taste.


  1. Audrey: I hope you had a fabulous Thanksgiving! Ours was nice and quiet-just the five of us this year.
    We've been watching Christmas movies-it has been a good weekend for that since it is cold and rainy.
    We've watched Polar Express, The Santa Clause, Rudolph, and Frosty the Snowman.Oh, and Miracle on 34th Street.
    ~Have a good rest of the week-end!!

  2. Thank You, it went well. I'm glad you had a good week also! I did forget to mention that we watched The Polar Express last night. :)

  3. Thanks for the mini reviews. I had been wanting to know about a few of those.
