Watched "Julie and Julia" tonight. Meryl Streep has serious acting chops. I'd enjoy watching her read my grocery list.

I thought they did a pretty good job on the re-make.

Hubby and I have really liked both of the new Star Trek movies. Roland knows the previous movies better than I do and he thinks these have been a respectful and fun reboot of the story.

That pretty much clinches it, I'll pick it up tomorrow. We enjoyed the first JJ Abrams offering, we should enjoy the second one.

Star Trek Into Darkness, thanks for the thumbs up, folks! I enjoyed the heck out of it. Shrek said, "I think Father Gene would have thought it was okay." LOL!

We watched World War Z last night.

Not as good as I thought it might be, but it wasn't bad.

The Wickerman this morning, the original. Then a moody movie on Netflix called Flesh and Bone. Excellent movie if you are into dark suspense/drama.

We watched "You Again?" Wednesday night, a very forgettable movie. Seriously, it was forgettable in spite of its stellar cast. For the first half of the movie I kept saying to Himself "we've seen this movie, haven't we?" and he'd say "I don't remember it". Keep in mind about the ONLY time I watch a movie is together with him - rarely watch one alone. The second half the danged thing didn't look familiar to either of us even though every single scene was predictable. I guess we saw it...twice. Heaven help us if I bring it home again and we lose another two years of our lives we'll never get back!
