Long Holiday Weekend = Many'a'movies

So far I've watched 4 movies this weekend (3 rentals and one trip to the theatre)
In order of viewing
1. The Heartbreak Kid: A Farrelly Brothers movie. Twisted Humor. About a guy who marries a woman only after knowing her for about 6 weeks and doesn't see her true colors until their Honeymoon in Cabo. Very very very funny first half-- kinda takes some random turns in the middle-- and revives itself in the end. The actress who played Ben Stillers wife totally made the film. Definitely recommend it as a rental.

2. The Kingdom: Call me an idiot, but I really didn't understand one thing in this film. If someone asked me what its about, I couldn't tell you! Gus thought it was really good though- smartie! Lol, I suppose a good reason as to why I didn't get it was because I had my MacBook open blogging the whole time. But still...

3. Once: After reading Nanette's review, I knew this was going to be a definite rental. I LOVED this movie, even Gus thought it was awesome. AND ITS A MUSICAL! To get a boy to love a musical is a triumph- except it wasn't like a typical cheesy musical- even though I love those too. Its even better when you have no clue what its about, so I'm not going to say anything! Except that Glen Hansard's voice is beautiful and sexy.. This is declared one of my top favorite two movies of 2007, along with No Country for Old Men.

4. I Am Legend: Also checked this out after a Nanette review (I'm seeing a new career for you!!) and call me a huge wimp, but this movie brought me back to me wanting to watch only romantic comedies! I felt like it was too many downers with no uppers (can anyone tell I don't like to go out of my comfort zone?!?). Sure the special effects were cool, but it just wasn't for me. The boy enjoyed watching it though, so I look at it more as taking one for the team.. Will Smiths body was very jacked...

I remember last year when they were filming I am Legend all over NYC. It seriously felt like I couldn't go anywhere without running into their huge crazy film crew. Strangely enough, I have ZERO desire to see this movie.

Ooooh, glad you loved Once! It really is so fabulous!!!

And as for I Am Legend, I think Will Smith's pull-up scene was worth the price of admission. ;)

Too bad you're not in So. Cal - I need someone to see P.S. I Love You with!

I Am Legend was a movie pretty much broke my heart (you kno wwhich part I'm taking about). I also loved No Country For Old Men so I'm going to have to check out Once.

Lipstick Bitches- OMG can I just tell you I cried for about 3 minute straight during that scene. I'm trying not to let it ruin my impression of will smith though :)

I stop and stare every time the trailer comes on with Will Smith doing push ups. Got DAY-UMM!
