Happy TDay

So Dave and I are sitting at the airport waiting to go to Utah. We're going to have T day dinner with my dad's side of the family, probably see a little bit of my mom's side and hopefully my niece and nephews. The youngest boy just got chicken pox (or something along those lines, the doctors aren't sure) so we may not be able to see them. Then we'll be hanging out a little bit in Utah, probably play some games with the family, watch movies, etc. Then Sat we're heading up to Pocatello, ID where I went to college, to see some of my college friends and have some good ol' Poky food. I'm super excited about Mandarin House (love their mandarin chicken) and Goody's (pizza bombs!!!) and just all around some good food that is only available in Poky. And of course I'm excited about seeing my friends. One of the group might not be able to make it up, so hopefully we'll see her on the flipside back in Utah.

Anyway, I'm excited about this trip. I've been looking forward to it for a little while and now we're here at the airport. It was really fast getting through security. I was surpirsed! We got there around 7:40 and we were at the gate by 8. Amazing, considering this is a heavy travel day!! Hopefully no delays from here on out, and we'll continue with our great Tday traveling experience!!

And re the Tday dinner, I'm way excited for pineapple bavarian. Yay for pineapple bavarian, a dessert dish my aunt Louise makes every year. It's so yummy!!!!

Movie Reviw Time!

So it's that time again, when I've watched a few movis, old and new, and have to comment on them.

Over the last couple weeks we've gone to a few movies and bought a few and seen a few on cable that I just have to remark upon.

So we bought Mr. Brooks while Michele was visiting and rewatched that. Loved it! I loved it just as much as I did the first time. I loved Kevin Costner in this, loved his alter ego played by William Hurt, I loved his daughter played by Danielle Panabaker, I really liked Demi Moore in it, and Dane Cook. The story is great, the end was great and I just have to rate it a 4 out of 5.

Sticking with Dane Cook, let's move into Dan in Real Life. Liked it. It was pretty cute and I really like Steve Carrell, who did great as a dad who's also trying to be the mom to his 3 daughters. It was a good heart felt dramedy without the corny lines and/or corny plot. It had quite a few big names, and former big names. I gave it a 3 out of 5. Dave was willing to watch it with me because I went and saw Michael Clayton with him. Hated it! I was asleep in the first 20 minutes, and I rarely sleep through movies. It was a SNOOZER!!! And I just didn't get the big deal. I think I actually fell asleep a couple of times. I really like Tilda Swinton but I thought her role here was blah. Having come from playing the Angel Gabriel in Constantine and the White Witch in Narnia, her character here was just blah. Blah blah, blah blah. I actually wanted my money back.

But we saw Dan in Real Life after American Gangster. That was Freaking Awesome. It gets a 4 out of 5. We've been watching some background on Frank Lucas and from what I've seen, the movie portrayed a very accurate depiction of him. We've been waiting for this movie since like May or so, and we were so glad to finally see it. I loved Denzel in it, of course, and I really liked the way the cinemetographer shot it. I'm thinking Oscar for best actor.

The last movie I'm reviewing is Why Did I Get Married? I've only recently become aware of the comedic genious that is Tyler Perry but I really have enjoyed his movies. We saw both Daddy's Little Girls and Married this year, and they were both very good. And I watched a few Madea movies on DVD that I hadn't seen and saw Madea Goes to Jail, which was hilarious. Overall I rate Tyler Perry a 4 of 5.

So mostly very happy about the movies lately, but Michael Clayton was a SNOOZER.
