Movies

Blogger is still having hiccups, thus I have written this post twice today. I guess the moral of the story is to type in Word first.

This weekend was filled with movies, old friends, Greek food at 4 in the morning after a night of revelry, and a lot of couch time.

On Friday, Mr. Rochester and I watched Hidalgo, which was about what I expected. It was the story of a man and his horse on a cross country race across the desert, with some intrigue and romance thrown in for good measure. While not stellar, it was a nice little movie. The scenery was very nice and I am not simply referring to Viggo Mortenson.

On Saturday morning, we watched Out of Time, which could have been named Out of Original Plot Devices Thus This Movie is Boring and Predictable. Mr. R had it figured out almost from the beginning, but I stopped caring enough to pay attention to the details. Even the “suspense” towards the end could not rouse me from the lethargy of the first hour and a half of the movie. I was very glad when it was over.

Underworld: Evolution has been given a release date of December 9th. Hooray! I have been eagerly waiting for this movie. I remember going to see the first installment of this movie series, simply titled Underworld. I lived in Dallas at the time and could not convince any of my friends to go with me on opening night. I went by myself and it was great. The biggest problem I always have when I go to the movies alone is that there is no one there to save my seat when I go to the bathroom. This time around, Mr. R and I are in the same city and he will have the joy of being my seat holder.

–Jane, had a great weekend
