The Tuesday Entertainment Roundup

As busy as I was this past week, I somehow managed to watch several movies. (And I made headway on the 2 books I'm reading!) Here's the skinny.

Margot at the Wedding - I watched this one with my friend Lisa, and I think we both finished this movie saying, "Huh?!" The cast includes Nicole Kidman and Jennifer Jason Leigh, who I have adored in other roles. Suffice it to say, there's a good reason that you've probably never heard of this flick. Don't make the same mistake that we did.

The Lucky Ones - I really enjoyed this movie! It stars Tim Robbins, Rachel McAdams, & Michael Pena as injured Iraq war vets who have come home to deal with personal challenges. At times, it felt like the movie dragged a bit, but overall, hubby & I both gave this one 2 thumbs up.

Eagle Eye - GREAT MOVIE! Shia LeBeouf has redeemed himself (in my eyes) after that Indiana Jones debacle from a few weeks ago. This is a thriller with some great action sequences and a cast that is fab. Two thumbs way up!

The Ex - This is a great little movie that didn't get a lot of press, I guess. It stars Zach Braff (always hilarious), Amanda Peet (who I adore) and Jason Bateman (who plays evil a little too well). Zach & Amanda play a married couple whose relationship is tested by her old flame, Jason. Lots of great supporting characters in this flick and some GREAT writing! I definitely recommend this one.

I'm super excited that I have a "mom date" tomorrow with my buddy Shannon. We're going to see The Proposal. Ryan Reynolds...SWOON!

See y'all next week!

I've added "Eagle Eye" to my Netflix queue... now I just need to watch the movies I've had for over a week now and get those sent back...

Have you seen anything else with Shia? I think "Disturbia" is a really good movie.

Have fun on your mom date! I have a REAL mom date...and went with my mom to see "The Proposal." I loved it.

I have Eagle Eye in my queue...I'll have to move it up.

Jen said...

I haven't seen any of these yet. I will definitely add Eagle Eye and The Ex to my queue.

The Proposal was AWESOME!!!! You'll love it.

I really like Eagle Eye. This weekend we watched Confessions of a Shopaholic. Umm yeah, not what I expected. It was kinda boring.

I've read the book so I thought it would be funnier. Not so much.

Finished The Help this weekend. It was a GREAT book recommended by Kat.

You girls have fun! But I'm tellin' ya - forget the Proposal until you've seen the Hangover. Still...laughing. Sides...hurting...from...laughing!

Michelle said...

Yeah... never heard of a one of those :) BUT when I do finally get a chance to see a movie, at least I'll know what to look for, right? The Ex sounds quite promising!
