Two movie reviews
John and I watched two fabulous movies this weekend. Normally I only think movies are so-so. It takes a lot to impress me. This weekend we watched: "Live Free or Die Hard" and "I am Legend." Both of these movies were in the theaters recently yet I don't remember hearing much about them. I think they were great. "Live free or die hard" was really fun. All the Die Hard movies are great. There were many many many unrealistic parts, but it was really fun. The story line fascinated me to think about what life would be like if it were really happening. The second movie, I am Legend, was also great. John was not excited about it because it strayed from the book, which he had read and consequently I was looking forward to it, but would be fine if I didn't see it anytime soon. Again, a really great movie. Another fascinating story line. In addition, I literally spent about 50% of the movie sobbing my eyes out. Not just little trickles running down my cheeks either. Full out, gasping, gulping, chest heaving, sobbing. I think just having a kid and putting myself in the main character's shoes got to me. (Hey, since having her I am now "one of those" who cry at commercials!) So, if anyone needs a recommendation for a movie, those are my 2 picks.
