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.
