MOVIE MONDAY


Mark and I went to see Mission Impossible Rouge Nation. The movie was very good and of course had a lot of non-stop action. Definitely worth seeing and Tom Cruise was great along with Simon Pegg who keeps you laughing. 
"Ethan and team take on their most impossible mission yet, eradicating the Syndicate - an International rogue organization as highly skilled as they are, committed to destroying the IMF."


I went to see Vacation with Ed Helms and Christina Applegate. This is not a remake, it is Rusty Griswold taking his kids on a Vaction like his dad did in National Lampoo's Vacation movie back in 1983. I had to go back and check the rating of that movie and was surprised to see it was R rated back them.

This one is R rated too. I have to say that I enjoyed it and expected it to be very silly which it was. What I didn't like is that their youngest son uses very foul language which just isn't appropriate for a boy his age let alone in front of your parents at any age! 
"Rusty Griswold takes his own family on a road trip to "Walley World" in order to spice things up with his wife and reconnect with his sons."


Last Monday I went to see Ricki and the Flash with Meryl Streep. This movie was cute and I'm glad I went to see it. The only issue I had was that I just couldn't see her as a rock singer but most likely because I don't like rock music very much to begin with. 

I was anxious to see it because I am a fan of her daughter in real life, Mamie Gummer, who plays her daughter in the movie. She is very talented. 
"A musician who gave up everything for her dream of rock-and-roll stardom returns home, looking to make things right with her family."

I had hoped to see two other movies last week but didn't get around to it so hopefully I can see them this week. 

Whatever you do this week make it a good one!

I was wondering about the Vacation. Thanks for clearing up the remake/sequel thing. Don't know whether I will get around to seeing any of them, since I start work again tomorrow.

I would love to see Rikki, I love Streep... it was a little odd that they cast her in it, but the trailers look like she did a great job.

I really want to see the Streep movie. I love Rick Springfield!!
I heard good things about Mission Impossible from my coworkers.
Sounds like you had a good relaxing weekend.

Thanks for the reviews, Debby. We did see Mission Impossible a few weeks ago. It was definitely action packed!

I turn over in my grave when I hear swear words especially from a child. I would love to see Meryl as Ricki!

I cant picture Meryl Streep as a rocker myself.
That's off a real story?
I just want to see it because of Rick Springfield

I haven't seen "Rogue Nation", but I know Tom Cruise always sees lots of action in his movies. I haven't seen Ricki and the Flash either, but I can't picture Meryl Streep in that type of movie either.

No movies here, but I did watch an episode of the Waltons today while peeling apples to can ;-)

The only one of those movies I really want to see is Ricky and the Flash, too, although I can't quite see Meryl Streep as a rock singer, either! I like Mamie Gummer, too. Hasn't she been on The Good Wife? I'll have to click that link.

Thanks for the reviews Debby. Have not seen any of them yet.
