The Tuesday Entertainment Roundup

Well folks, it was another lean week of movies. I swear, I'm not sure I remember most of last week because I was so busy. So let's recap the few that I did see.

Fool's Gold - I was a fool to rent this movie. I was a fool to watch it for the 40 minutes that I did. I'm a bigger fool for watching past the 10 minute mark when hubby & I agreed that this movie was crap. And that's the nicest thing I can say about it.

The Secret Life of Bees - I really liked this movie. Great cast. Great writing. It's a sad story though, so be prepared. Dakota Fanning is such a great actress! And I'm really starting to love Queen Latifah also.

Defiance - Ok, I only saw about 10 minutes of this film, but what I saw was good. So, this is hubby's review. Take it honey! "It was good. I liked it. It was better than CATS." Ok, so I'm not sure about that last part, but that was a raving review, so go rent this one, especially if you like war movies that are somewhat uplifting.

And that's it for this week. And here's your homework.

First, head over to Shannon's right now to bid on some great items for a great cause!

Second, make sure you come back here on Thursday for the first of 7 giveaways that I'm doing to celebrate my birthday! It's my birthday and you're getting the presents!

I loved the Secret Life of Bees too. :-) It was so neat. Love Queen Latifah.

Defiance is sitting on our book shelf waiting to be watched right now. I'm glad to know it's good!

I want to see "Bees" so I am glad you liked it. Isn't Defiance with Daniel Craig?

I don't even know what we watched...Way of War or something similar - that sucked. It was hard to follow and the plotline left a lot to be desired. And Push, which wasn't as good as I expected it to be.

Thank you for saving me from "Fools Gold" - I was going to put it in my netflix queue. My mom read "Defiance" - and said it was rather dry. I haven't seen the movie yet. I don't do war movies. And I keep weighing that with Liev and Daniel...

I really enjoyed The Secret Life of Bees. I loved the book, though. And Fools Gold? TERRIBLE. But worse still? The Happening. For some reason I didn't listen to every single other person who saw the movie and said it was bad. It is awful.
