The latest movie I watched was Prince Caspian of the Chronicles of Narnia. It was great! Next I hope to watch Speed Racer because I loved the cartoon version as a kid (am I dating my age?) and I thought he was soooooooooooooooooooo cute.

We just watched Varsity Blues, it was good. I'm surprised I hadn't seen it before now, Jon Voight plays such a good ba*tard! Great soundtrack too.

Varsity Blues (1999)

Last movie we watched was one of DW's Netflix picks, called 'Red'. It is a French film I believe with English subtitles and is part of a trilogy of 'morals' films (Blue, White and Red).
In this one, a guy is still in love with his estranged wife, and while calling her one day trying to reconcile she plays nasty and 'lets' him hear her with her new guy (you get the drift). For revenge, he lures her to Paris under pretenses that he has died and left her his entire estate. She finds him alive in a motel, has one last 'night' with him and discovers she is still in love with him and decides she wants to get back together, then he 'disappears' and while she is going to collect the money the police arrest her for his murder. Turns out he framed her for it.
The movie ends with him visiting her prison and watching her in her cell from the courtyard, twisted movie to say the least.

Last night we watched The Forbidden Kingdom with Jet Li and Jackie Chan. It was an easy watch, the fights were good but it could have been better.

I heard that iron man was very close to true.... haven't seen it yet and i'm not sure i want to try the new hulk movie after the last disaster....

Last night was Fools Gold with hottie Matthew McConaughey and super sexy Kate Hudson. It was a fun no-brainer and gave me some giggles!

Ironman

I, for one, promote anyone who wants to go see IRONMAN. I had not been to theatre more than 10-15 years, this impressed me. Almost as much as the first Star Wars! And that was my favorite. Everyone I know tells me it was a 'blockbuster'. I didn't want to leave my seat afraid I would miss something. No rewind button. I would like to see again.
