Monday Movie Review

David and I have watched a lot of movies lately. Perhaps, we've become one of those boring couples. Nahhhh. I think it's the wonderful presence of Redbox and the $1 movie theater here in Birmingham. Seriously, what cheaper date can you have? And, we usually like to combine chips, salsa and margaritas to the $1 movie theater experience. Does life get any better than margaritas and saving money?

Anywho, here are some of our choices - the good, the bad and the ugly.

The Tourist - the scenery in this movie was great. I mean, how can Europe ever look bad? The costumes reminded me of the old Alfred Hitchcock movies with Grace Kelly. Very surprising ending, overall a decent movie.  

Love Natalie Portman and Ashton Kutcher. I kinda forgot how funny Ashton is. He just cracks me up, so tall and gangly. This movie was better than average. A typical romantic comedy. I just wish the ending could have been better. 

Lovedddd this movie. What can I say, a Massachusetts accent gets me every time. This movie was grim, sometimes a bit dark, but overall ah-may-zing.And plus, it has Marky Mark.

Ugh. My affection for Reese Witherspoon and Jack Nicholson severely dropped after watching getting through this movie. Bad writing, bad plot, bad acting.

I agree you with 100% in regard the movie, The Fighter. WOW!! After watching it... I understood exactly why Christan Bale received the Oscar for best supporting actor! Amazing!!

And I also agree with you about How Do You Know? I love Reese, Paul Rudd, Owen Wilson and Jack Nicholson... but not in this movie. It had great potential but just didn't live up to it.

Thanks for the movie review!
