This last week was a rather interesting one for movies. Bear with me. because there is definitely a theme here.
Harry Potter & the Sorcerer's Stone - Yes, this was my first time seeing this movie. No, I haven't read the book. Yes, I enjoyed the movie. No, I'm not going to read the book anytime soon.
Harry Potter & the Chamber of Secrets - Since I enjoyed the first one so much, we decided to tackle the next one in the franchise. I liked this one even better than the first! I was pleased to see the special effects improve with this movie.
Harry Potter & the Prisoner of Azkaban - I heart Gary Oldman. I'm not sure why, but he's a great actor. And scary. Another great movie!
Harry Potter & the Goblet of Fire - Two words...Robert Pattinson. I big puffy heart this installment of the franchise!
Harry Potter & the Order of the Phoenix - Definitely the best of the 5 thus far. In my humble opinion, each movie has been better than the last. Hubby & I are now looking forward to seeing the newest movie which starts in theaters tomorrow!
Sleepless in Seattle - This is definitely one of the best romantic comedies of all time! I've seen it multiple times, but this particular time was nostalgic for me. I started reminiscing about seeing this movie in the theater with my grandparents who were married for 50+ years. That was a cool experience.
Mamma Mia! - I know I talked about this movie when it first came out, but it begs to be mentioned again. If you love musical comedies, SEE THIS MOVIE! If for nothing else, you must see the closing number that runs during the credits. Priceless!
August Rush - This movie was way too long. The few redeeming qualities are as follows. 1. Jonathan Rhys Meyers is nice to look at; 2. Freddie Highmore gives the only decent performance in the whole movie; 3. There's some lovely music in the movie. My overall grade is a C+.
That's it for this week! I'm still working on some books and at the moment, I'm recovering from a weekend of marathon scrapbooking. I finished 117 pages in 2 family albums this past weekend and I feel like I painted my whole house or something equally strenuous. Ridiculous. Happy Tuesday everyone and come back later this evening for my giveaway announcement!
