Cinema

We've rented three movies in the past week, and two out of three were definitely worth it.



The first was Mamma's Boy, with John Heder, and it was so bad I can't even describe it. For those of you that were sucked in like we were, I feel for you, and for those who haven't watched it yet, stay away! If any of you liked it, you are crazy and have poor taste in movies.



Friday of this week we rented Be Kind Rewind, with Jack Black. This movie was sooooo good. I loved it. The Fats Waller music definitely added to the overall panache.



Last night, we got Kite Runner from RedBox, and it was not disappointing. It did go through the events of the book rather quickly, but all movies-that-were-books-first do that, except Lord of the Rings, but not everyone wants to spend 4 hours in a movie theater. I read the book in my honors junior English class, A hasn't read the book. We both enjoyed it, and agreed that though the story is very, very sad, it is good.

That's cool - I just watched Kite Runner last night (see my blog). Wow.

So random but on the subject of movies, if I'm not mistaken, I think you would like "Lars and the Real Girl" you should definitely check it out if you haven't already seen it.

Be kind rewind is the best! My favorite part is when the Jack Black character pees out all of his magnetism into the gutter, and all metallic objects in the area stick to it. That had me laughing for days. Whaa ha ha.

You should definitely see Lars and the Real Girl if you haven't yet.

Lately the wife and I have been watching Arrested Development on DVD - which is hillarious. I don't know how I missed it when it was on TV. Whaa ha ha.

My favorite part of Be Kind Rewind is when they are filming Ghost Busters and go to the library. Their guns are the funniest! Amanda and Jim, I will for sure check out Lars and the Real Girl. And yes, Arrested Development is so funny. I only watched a few episodes when it was first on, but it has a character named Marta, which automatically makes it cool.

Thanks for the recommendations and the warning! I am sad about the movies Jon Heder has been in since Napoleon. Basically they have all sucked.
