For the last 2 Saturdays I have gone to the movies to see the Academy Nominees for the Best Picture. It was 10 movies this year and they showed 5 each day. I like most of the ones on the first Saturday and almost nothing of yesterdays movies. The first day was Avatar 3D, Up in the Air, Precious, The Blind Side, Inglourious Basterds. (not my spelling) It was so much fun. We were so tired but loved the way the theatre put it all together. Yesterday we saw Up, A Serious Man, The Hurt Locker, An Education, District 9. I thought the Hurt Locker was OK, but not FANTASTIC and liked nothing else. So not the best day but we had such a good time it was all good.
The first day. On our way to see Avatar in 3D. It was a good movie but I wasn't blown away like everyone else was. Just didn't have the WOW factor like it had been played up - to me. It was just a grown up Fern Gully. My opinion is worth what you pay for it. :)
As I watched the Academy Awards tonight it was nice to have an informed thought on who should win or shouldn't. I didn't agree with some of it but I don't get a vote. Ooooh well.
At the end of day 1. We were very tired.
The end of day 2. A tad earlier then the week before but we were still tired. It's a lot to sit through 5 movies. We had 20 minutes or so between each and a longer dinner break.
Tonight we had family dinner. All that was missing was Drummer boy and his family. So after dinner and it was kind of quiet we had a video call. Here is Drummer and Nathaniel. (I'll think of something for him) Princess had us laughing. We miss them so much. Dh is DYING to get his hands on that boy. We are going to see them soon.
Drummer and Daniel Aka Nathaniel. Princess can't quite get out the NATH..... so she calls him Daniel. It's SO cute!
Dh and I talking to Princess. Her Papa asked her to come swing so she was trying to crawl throught the computer. Papa is ugly to tease her. They WILL find a swing when we go.
It was a good day. I hope you have a blessed week.
