Going to the movies?

DH and I went to this movie today and I liked it very much. If you are in to foreign films, this movie was directed by the same director of House of the Flying Daggers. Sets and costumes were stunningly beautiful. Story line was one of power, greed and a family gone wacko because of it. Here is a trailer.

The last movie I went to see was the"Pirates of the Caribbean" Dead Man's Chest. We were the only ones in the theater and at the last minute a couple came in and sat in the seats right behind us. They had the whole place to sit. I still can't figure it out.Dahhhh.

I think both of those movies look good. Curse of the Golden Flower, is that what you saw Wasabi? That looks like a great film! I loved all the other films he has done. Hero was exceptionally beautiful, I loved all the symbolic colors.

The pursuit of happyness is the Will Smith one. Looks like a feel good movie. That's his real son in the movie, what a cutie!

I'm kinda interested in Children of Men. Looks a little freaky but Clive Owen and Alfonso Cueron, how can you resist?

My mom saw Black Diamond recently, she said it was good. The Good Shepard, I wanna see too.

The one major problem I have with the pursuit of happiness movie is the likelihood of another person getting that same chance in the USA again is like a billion to one.

I think the Curse of the Golden Flower movie might not make it in every city so it will have to be a movie rental.

We just rented 2 movies last night.
1. Little Miss Sunshine - It was good and worth renting.

2. Black Dahlia- What an awful waste of a perfectly good DVD disk. It was horrible and we turned it off after 15 minutes.

That's why I don't go to movies anymore. Most of the time they are awful. I find it alot easier to stop a movie that we spent $3.00 for then walking out of a movie you just spent $15.00 for and hope it gets better. Plus I can watch them in my jammies.

Just finished the Movie Latino Dragon which I thought was a bad film, but the main male lead was a Ray Ramono look alike who can kick butt.

This movie is like the first Latino based Karate/Action film.

We went to watch 'Happy Feet' as a family this afternoon. Lots of lessons about the fishing industry. I love fish, don't know what I will live on when they have all be harvested from the waters!:

I liked Happy Feet!! Especially the baby Mumble dancing didn't even look like animation, it was like a real penguin chick wiggling around, too cute!! I loved the Los Amigos too. The only thing puzzled me was, why he remained in half baby feathers and face while all his peers have completely grown up? Also I thought it was a bit sad that he lost his love after all and remained alone in the end, just as all the other penguins had predicted...

I am also looking forward to Will Smith's new one, looks like a good one... it will be released next week here, so we have a little more to wait...

Yes there have been overfishing problems in the past and are being corrected. That movie gives a very one sided veiw of the world in which the people are the problem and the world would be a better place without us. Enjoy your fish, eat it as often as you like and don't feel guilty about it. There are some bad people in the world who would happily kill every last animal on the face of the earth just to make a buck, but that's not the norm. Here in the US there have been incredible wrongs righted like with the wolf, bison, bald eagle and the wild turkey. There are many more white tailed deer here then when the Pilgrims arrived. I belong to a number of groups like Ducks Unlimited, Trout Unlimited, Ruffed Grouse society and Pheasants Forever that continually strive to create more habit that not only benifits the targeted species but the whole ecosystem from song birds to turtles and frogs. We as a species actually do good things too.
