Movie Reviews

So we’ve been told my numerous friends with kids to go to the movies, because we won’t EVER GET TO GO AGAIN.  OK, that’s a bit of an exaggeration, but it’ll be awhile before we see anything not made by Disney or Pixar.

Here are the reviews:

Pirates of the
Caribbean 3 – Lots of good swashbuckling action and better than the 2nd installment.  Great for summer watching.

Spiderman 3 – More torment for Peter Parker and Spiderman. The Sandman was really cool to watch (amazing what $100 million of special effects can do) and the other villains are fine.

Fantastic 4 -  Also a good summer movie.  The Silver Surfer is very, very cool.  Jessica Alba is weirdly tan and has strange and brassy blonde hair.  But otherwise, it was nifty.

Addendum: I forgot about Ocean’s 13!  Entertaining and better than Ocean’s 12.  Nice twists.

I’d like to see Transformers and Harry Potter, but hopefully I’ll just have a baby soon instead….


Borat – Funny, but not as good as I was expecting.  My favorite scene was in the ‘deleted scenes’ list, where Borat is at the grocery store looking at cheese.

Pan’s Labyrinth – Quite possibly the worst movie I’ve seen in a year.  Violent and gory, and many of the main characters die.  More about fascist
Spain (hello, uplifting) than fantasy. 

The Prestige -  Good movie about dueling magicians. It’s Batman vs. Wolverine, I mean Christian Bale vs. Hugh Jackman.  Lots of good twists and turns and kept me guessing. 

Off to eat more spicy food and take a walk…..

Anybody in there?!

The lack of movement Thor has is driving me nuts!  Actually, it’s more lack of feeling.  If I look at him on a sonogram, he is flipping like crazy, but I feel none of it!  My placenta is sitting up front, so he’s just kicking a pillow instead of me for now.  A co-worker of mine had the same issue and she didn’t start feeling anything until 30 weeks!  This is bumming me out because the movement was something I was really looking foreward to.  I also wanted to see feet moving across my belly, but that probably won’t happen.  Oh well…

So I had to but a maternity bathing suit the other day.  One of my friends invited me to her pool, and I had nothing to wear.  I’ve been told to just wear a bikini because the pregnant belly forgives all, but I didn’t think that looked too good.  However, the frilly moo-moo looking top of a maternity suit isn’t that attractive either.  It’s going to be a pretty comical afternoon!

Not much to report right now.  Nothing to feel, nothing much to see.  It’s not that I’m hoping to start getting fat but I guess “showing” would make this all seem a little more real.   I am finding myself wanting to eat fried egg sandwiches a whole lot more often than I used to, however.  And burgers and fries constantly sound tasty.  But I’m not sure any of that is good news.

I’ve been burning through my Netflix stash lately.  I’ve now completed 3 seasons of Curb Your Enthusiasm.  Man, that show makes me uncomfortable!!  I can’t stop watching it, though.  Last night and early this morning, I watched the first 6 episodes of Weeds, which I found to be really entertaining.  We’ve also received on loan the first two seasons of The Office, but Seth wants to watch those and we aren’t often on the same TV-watching schedule so I have to wait.  His grad school classes started this week so he’s got reading and writing to do when he gets home in the evenings but maybe we’ll have time over the weekend.  I did watch Because I Said So the other night and it was okay.  Thank goodness for Netflix.
