Life Is Just So Daily

Well, it's Thursday.

Gin updated that Emory is doing MUCH better.

They estimate the repairs on my car to be completed 10/8.
That means only 6 more days in the Impala. Thank GOODNESS!

Movie Reviews!

Forgetting Sarah Marshall

Enjoyed it. Not a whole lotta thinkin' to do with this one...just a funny little movie. But---I will have to say this with regard to the nudity: I could have really done without all of it....but, if you're going to throw naked shots in a movie, at least this one has about equal screen time for naked guy bits & naked girl bits. Now, I could have gone my whole life without seeing that guy naked....but, now that I've seen it, I can't unsee it.

moving on...

The Prize Winner of Defiance,OH

Can I tell you how much I loved this movie?
I loved it. I watched it by myself snuggled up on my bed, and I just loved it. What a tale of perserverence & motherhood & wife-hood (is that a word?). Anyway...I loved it. Parts of it were sad...and frustrating....but the optimism that this woman had was just remarkable.

Shipping News

Um...I have no idea how good this movie is. At the part where the mother SELLS her baby (well, little girl...6yo to be exact), well, I turned it off. That flick is just not for me.

What Happens In Vegas

We (Hubby & I) both thought this was sooooo funny!

Then She Found Me

Oh, I watched it start to finish. Main character is adopted as a baby, and now she's an adult. Her birth mother finds her. Main character is OBSESSED with getting pregnant. She doesn't want to adopt. She wants the whole pregnancy experience. I can appreciate that. What I can't appreciate in this movie: she (main character) says that she will forgive her birth mother for giving her up, if her birth mother will pay for her to have in-vitro. So, she puts a dollar amount on her forgiveness? I will forgive you...if you buy me a baby....... I dunno. I just didn't like that part. I understand her wanting to be a mom & wanting to experience pregnancy. I don't understand her putting a price on her forgiveness....that's weird to me.

Charlie Bartlett

It was okay.
This comedy follows the exploits of Charlie Bartlett (Anton Yelchin), a miserable high school student who finds a novel way to fit in with his classmates: by pretending to be the school psychiatrist, dispensing advice and the occasional prescription medicine. Charlie's sympathetic ear and ready access to drugs make him popular with the students, but his activities soon attract the unwelcome attention of the school principal (Robert Downey Jr.).
It was just okay. Not great.

88 Minutes

We both liked it. Hubby had it figured out within the first 10 minutes. Me, not so much. Some of the different events in the movie were cliche, but it was good in the end. I wouldn't say that I loved it, but it was entertaining, and you certainly wanted to see to the end to see how it all turned out. The ending really was the best part!

That's all for now.

I recently picked up the book "The Prize Winner..." mainly because the main character shares my daughters name. Anyway, I haven't had a chance to read it yet. Glad to read your review of the movie!
