AT THE MOVIES

Mark and I went to see 2 Guns with Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg. I really enjoyed this movie. They were very good together. Of course it is one of those shoot 'em up movies but the action was great.
"A DEA agent and a naval intelligence officer find themselves on the run after a botched attempt to infiltrate a drug cartel. While fleeing, they learn the secret of their shaky alliance: Neither knew that the other was an undercover agent."

Then we went to see Elysium with Matt Damon and Jodie Foster. I liked this movie, it was pretty interesting for a futuristic movie. Not necessarily my favorite type of movie to see but it kept me interested and entertained.
"Set in the year 2154, where the very wealthy live on a man-made space station while the rest of the population resides on a ruined Earth, a man takes on a mission that could bring equality to the polarized worlds."

I went to see Disney's Planes. I do love animated kids movies and Cars has been one of my many favorites. Well let me tell you that this one does not disappoint. I loved it and I will buy it when it comes out on DVD. 

I love the fact that an animated character can wrap me around his wing and have me cheering for him....go Dusty, go Dusty!!!  FYI: Hallmark has a Dusty ornament this year.
"Dusty is a cropdusting plane who dreams of competing in a famous aerial race. The problem? He is hopelessly afraid of heights. With the support of his mentor Skipper and a host of new friends, Dusty sets off to make his dreams come true."

We also recently watched two movies on Netflix that we had not seen at the show. One was Cloud Atlas with Tom Hanks and Halle Berry. This was one strange movie. I don't really know how I feel about it. 
"An exploration of how the actions of individual lives impact one another in the past, present and future, as one soul is shaped from a killer into a hero, and an act of kindness ripples across centuries to inspire a revolution."

Then we watched The Call with Halle Berry and Abigail Breslin. I've enjoyed watching Abigail since she was a young girl. This movie was intense and I have to say that I liked this movie a lot.
"When a veteran 911 operator takes a life-altering call from a teenage girl who has just been abducted, she realizes that she must confront a killer from her past in order to save the girl's life."

For some reason I can't seem to get into my post about Bodie. I think it is because there are so many wonderful photos and I don't want to overwhelm you so deciding which to share has been a challenge for me. Hopefully I will work on it over the weekend and get it up soon. I have managed to narrow our photos down to a few favorites which I am getting made on canvas for our gallery wall.

I also hope to see "The Butler"  this weekend. Looks like it's going to be a very good movie. 

Have a great weekend.........

Just about any movie with Denzel Washington is on my list of movies to see. And the commercials for The Call certainly seem intense - but worth seeing. And any Disney movie is on my must-see (and possibly must-buy) list. ;-)

Wish my hubby liked going to the movies. I think it is such a neat date! Yes, I want to see "The Butler", too!

Mara said...

Wow! Are you ever at home? I have just watched several of the films I took with me from the Netherlands. Noticed there were several missing that I probably (and not wisely) got rid of...

the Call sounds awesome. One I'll have to see. I like fast moving intense movies. And the Butler....another must see. Thanks for the update on these.....Have a great weekend Debby.

you're a movie-watching fool! :)

I'm jealous of your theater visits. We have only been once or twice since moving two years ago. There isn't a theater in our town now so we have to drive and it never seems to get done.

I love anything with Denzel Washington, so I'll check out the surrounding towns and see if we can get that that one.

Thanks for the reviews.

I don't to the movies much. It is so expensive. I usually wait until it is out on Redbox or Netflix. Some of those movies do sound good though.

My boys would enjoy Planes.

Hearing about all of those movies makes me want to go! I miss eating that delicious movie popcorn :)

I loved the movie "Cars", so I'll bet I'd like Planes, too.
