Go to the movies

For the first time in I don't know when, Army of Dad and I have seen all the big blockbuster films that are out right now.

We saw Xmen 3, MI3 and DaVinci Code.

I really enjoyed Xmen and the DaVinci Code. I thought MI3 was pretty stupid. It was ok enough. The stunts were cool to watch and I liked the actors. I just thought the plot - or lack thereof - was lame. AoD asked me what I expected from a Mission Imposible movie, but it was all explosions and not enough drama for me. So totally out of touch with reality that I couldn't even handle it. I was laughing hysterically at some of the stupid tricks they were doing. I thought MacGyver was more realistic than MI3. But, if you like explosions and Tom Cruise, go for it.

Xmen. Rocked. Enough said. Lots of twists and turns. Characters were great. I can't tell you anything without giving stuff away. But, I think there will be another movie. Don't leave after the credits or you'll miss something big. If you like Hugh Jackman in his wife beater, go check out LabKat's picture.

The DaVinci Code was great. I loved it. Seeing it with a cradle Catholic and I'm a new Catholic gave it some interesting squirms in our seats. I don't see my faith shaken by the film. I loved it - look I said it twice. Great action sequences, Tom Hanks and the French (Thanks to Uzz for telling me I had it wrong) gal were good. It had me guessing who was the bad guy much of the film. A little gory for my taste (and for a PG13 rating, in my opinion), but I highly recommend it. I loved Ian McKellan in this flick, too. He is one of my faves, though. Sparked some great discussions and debates in our car on the way to the coffee shop, where my dear husband promtly beat my ass at Connect Four. *sigh*

I also took the kids to see Over the Hedge. Cute movie making fun of the giant housing developments eating into the countryside.

Get yourselves to the movies this summer. More are coming, too. We have Superman, Cars and Pirates of the Carribean. Woo hoo!

    I only want to see MI:3 because Simon Pegg is in it and he's got to be the funniest, cleverest man in British comedy right now. If you can ever get hold of the UK Channel 4 series 'Spaced', it's a scream from start to finish. It's available on DVD over here - there were two seasons, available in a boxset with an extras DVD thrown in - and if you can find it, check it out.

    He was also a brilliant baddie in last year's first series of the revamped Doctor Who - and don't get me started on how brilliant that series is... x

    I've heard good things about the new Dr Who.
