The Dark Night

Joe and I just saw this movie.... it was so intense, I came out sweating. Way Way Way too much violence, no sex drugs or foul language. There may have been one kissing scene. I would NOT recommend it to anyone under the age of 99. It was so de-sensitizing to violent behavior. I told Joe after, "If I saw a car accident after this movie, I would shrug my shoulders and say: Eh...I've seen better."

The Joker, played by Heath Ledger, is really insane. He was too into the part. People have been talking that he should get an award for this part. I say nope. It wasn't a "stellar" performance.

Overall, out of five golden coins.... I would give it a one golden coin. According to my girls and the other's that went with them, they would give it a 5. "That movie was tight!" "Sweet Movie!"
It did have a good story, trying to figure out who was a good or bad guy. There were some surprises. Didn't make up for all the bombs and killings.

Save your money. Go buy food storage with what I just saved you.

Movie Reviews....

The Dark Knight.....

I did not see this, my girls did. Before they left, we had a talk about how this probably wasn't going to uplift their spirits and get them to the Celestial Kingdom any faster. I challenged them to find one redeeming quality about this picture. Hannah did! It was: Either you die a hero or live long enough to see yourself become the villian. I haven't figured what the redeeming quality was, but Hannah liked it. Hannah recommends ages 13+ to see it. Heath Ledger is really creepy, looks scarier without make-up than with. It's rated PG-13 for violence, not alot of swearing (Emma says they said the H____ word twice.... who was counting?!?!) Now that we do these movie reviews, Emma's my counter. Hannah's words: It was AMAZING. Will I see it? Probably not, until it's on TV.

SURF'S UP (addendum)....

We bought it, and we've watched it every night. It's pretty funny! I give it a 2 thumbs up.

More Reviews.....


For the most part, Emma loved it. Rated G, and then I was listening to FOX News that totally trashed the movie saying that it was totally political and you should be wary in taking your kids. Emma didn't have a clue it had a hidden meaning, so it slipped by her. I'm wondering if Al Gore had anything to do with it? Just kidding....

Surf's Up!

OK, it's an older movie, but I just saw it the other day. I'm sorry I didn't see it sooner. Very cute, very funny, I'm going out to buy it today. It's filmed like how they do The Office, camera's always there, always getting interviews right away. I didn't finish it, though, fell asleep. But, in all fairness, it's because I had only 2 hours of sleep in 48 hours. Hannah said I missed the best part of the movie, that's why I'll be buying it today.
