Inception

(I can never remember the name of this movie, I keep thinking it's called Concussion or Concurrence or Deception--which makes my 20+ something kids laugh at me. I just keep guessing the name until I ultimately have to look it up.)

I watched it three times this past week. It's a good movie, convoluted at times and it's so different that many parts of it can be interpreted by the watcher but the movie never fully discloses everything. (like the ending)

It's about a man, his wife, and his two children. His wife dies, the authorities think he killed her. He goes to another country to work at a job in lucid dreaming, to find a way back to his children (through money and powerful people that can help him).
So basically, he's sleeping on the job (ha ha).

I saw the ending three times and I have no idea how it ended--it just depends on your interpretation. You'll never see a spoiler alert about the ending because there is no definite answer on what happened in the end.

We saw "Contagion" with our friends last night. We had seen it before, but this was their first time.

Not only would I watch this, but I'd also be willing to pay to watch!

Just watched Vegas Vacation last night. Seen it a million times and it gets funnier each time. Clark Griswald = best movie character ever.

We have had a couple of disappointments lately.

A few nights ago we watched "The Kids Are All Right". Everyone we know said it was super funny and well acted. I will give it the well acted. It wasn't the subject matter, it was just boring.

Last night we watched Country Strong - a movie I have wanted to see for awhile now. It was very slow, boring and disjointed. The music was great!

Tonight is True Grit (the new version!). Then back to Harry Potter....we just have the last two left which we haven't seen - our reason for seeing the whole series over!

We liked the new version of True Grit. The story was well done, but nobody beats John Wayne as Rooster Cogburn.
