Movie Night!!

Last Tuesday, my sister and I resumed movie night. It's a combination of movies, coffee, some kind of sugary snack, and just chick chat! We saw a phenomenal movie....Juno. You can read more about it here: Hands Down should win BEST Picture, Best Screenplay, Best Actress! The main character is only 20 years old...from Canada! She is brilliant in this film....so bright and sarcastically fun!! It was a pleasure to watch...we really loved it.

Second flick on the agenda was "The Bucket List" with Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman. I am a huge Jack Nicholson fan. Anything with these two men in it was bound to be good. I really liked the movie. We laughed so hard! There were scenes where we wanted to cry too, but it was a very well done movie and definitely what I considered - Entertainment!

Now, you are probably wondering why on earth we would want to go to TWO movies back to back....well, in the town where I live, we have what is commonly called...a small neighborhood movie theatre. Tickets used to be $6.00 on Tuesday nights. Well...prices went up and they are now $7.50. Still affordable in our minds and we truly enjoyed both of these flicks!!

By the way, saw "27 Dresses" with my daughter a couple of weeks ago at the OTHER movie theatre where tickets were like $12.00. But, I love Katherine Heigl! I loved her in "Knocked Up", love her in "Greys Anatomy" and still loved her in "27 Dresses". The movie was a riot! The girl has a real gift for comedy. Yes...she can do serious very well also. But, she IS really, really hilarious. She carried the movie all by herself!!

I highly recommend all three of these movies and hope that they do well in the Upcoming Oscars. (And I must admit....I do love the real chick flick movies. I am so looking forward to Kate Hudson's new film, "Fools Gold" coming out next weekend.

We haven't decided what we will be checking out this Tuesday night yet....or I should say IF - as I have a dentist appointment for a tooth that has broken in half. I HATE going to the Dentist. I have spent WAY too many hours in pain due to teeth / jaw problems. Gingivectomy ring any bells....I had one of those when I was in my early twenties. I have more gold in my mouth than I care to admit. But, the damn thing broke, so I have to go get it fixed. Wish me luck.

I haven't seen those films but have read good reviews. I think I would go to the cinema more often if I had someone to go with me~ it's much more fun than going alone.
Good luck with the dentist.

I love small town theaters. We (Hubby, grandson, and I) went to see Alvin and the Chipmunks 2 weeks ago...ticket tab for all 3 of us was $11.00!

Let's hear it for the Mooooovies!

Hadn't heard of Juno but have been eyeing the Bucket List and wondering about 27 dresses. I will eventually see them. :)

We don't go out to a lot of movies. We watch the previews on the Mac through their 'service' and those movies you mention sound like they would be a lot of fun.

I'll have to watch for these, I love movie recommendations. I have heard lots of good things about all of these movies.

Now to find time to watch them... :)

Oh, I hate dental anything. The kids lose teeth and chase me around the house. I hope your appt goes okay. On another note, I think my cousin's husband is a dentist in the town you live. I hope you'll still be able to do movie night.

We saw 27 Dresses too - loved it!

We went to see Juno and we LOVED it from start to end. I especially loved that the ending was so unexpected. And the acting was AWESOME!

Oh, don't let Sirdar fool you. We went to a movie the other night and he refused to see "27 Dresses". We saw "Untraceable" instead. A good crime movie a bit like criminal minds, but showing more of the gore. I wouldn't mind seeing The Bucket List. There was a write up about Juno in the paper today, but I didn't get a chance to read it, just saw the photo.

You are smart to invest in gold. With the devaluation of the dollar...oh, heck. I can't keep that up! Good luck at the dentist!

Glad to hear the movie reviews. We never go as we get to spend ticket prices + the 10 bucks an hour for the sitter. Movies are usually 100 dollar evenings!
