We watched two DVDs over the weekend '' Paranormal #4'' Same old story, starting to get a boring. The second was ''Mama'' By Guillermo Del Toro [Pans Labyrinth]. Starring Jessica Chastain. A horror Film with a good story and special effects, sort of creepy but worth the watch. mysterychef

Last night, due to free Showtime this weekend, I finally got to see The Twilight Saga; Breaking Dawn Part 1. Like I've said before, I love a good vampire/werewolf story. Unfortunately I guess even a very bad one will keep me occupied
Aside from throwing up more times in the first thirty minutes than Bella Swan did, all I can say is I did not turn it off. This segment in the series was pretty much BS the whole way through. From her wedding where everyone was acting hokey telling her how beautiful she looked, to her concentration camp look where everyone was acting hokey not saying anything. BTW, I heard she had to lose 5 lbs to play the sick scenes. Yes, this one was very heavy on BS.

In our estimation, we wasted a Netflix choice when we watched The Da Vinci Code. It was a bit too long, confusing and difficult, what with the subtitles. I understand French and it was a challenge for me. I had just recently, about 2 weeks ago, read the book and I even found the movie hard to follow. We are finding it hard to understand what all the hullabaloo was about it when it first appeared in the theatres.

We watched Despicable Me in 3D, the first one the other night, just in time for heading to the cinema to see DM2 today

The daughter & I went & saw "World War Z", in 3 D, this afternoon. Action/thriller, edge of your seat kind of movie. I had to close my eyes a couple of times. They did not put much into any type of strong relationships in the movie. Had a pretty good ending.

We saw ''Hansel and Gretel ''on D.V.D.over the weekend. It was surprisingly good. A very updated version rated ''R' 'of Witches, Witchunters, and Trolls. Well done, very creepy.Have seen many action movies with worse violence rated PG-13. One brief love scene while swimming, urned it an adult rating. mysterychef
