okay, so I'm planning a slightly deeper post for tonight or sometime soon, but first, I thought I'd talk about the movies I went to see this weekend. It sounds incredibly odd to say that since I very rarely go to the movies. This school year I've only been to see Harry Potter and Black Swan, and then suddenly BAM! two in one weekend.
first, Friday night with my friend Cody, I went to see Rio. yes, we are small children who watch G rated movies. at least we went to a late showing, ok, so we're not twelve. ;)
I really had no expectations for this movie, and I really enjoyed it. It was cute, and Jesse Eisenberg's voice just cracks me up a little. He is great. The movie was really colorful & had birds doing the samba. What's not to love?
this afternoon I went by myself to see Water for Elephants because I had purchased a groupon a while back for Studio Movie Grill.
I was hoping this movie would be good -- I have the book, though I have yet to read it. I was doubting it though, because I'm not really a fan of Robert Pattinson and I've never actually seen a Reese Witherspoon movie (I know, I know...). However, I thoroughly enjoyed it. It was much less of a romance story than I expected, and I really thought it was a good movie. Now I want to read the book even more.
today I also saw a photo of the original actor cast as Aragorn in the Lord of the Rings movies, in costume and everything, and I am SO much more in love with Viggo Mortensen now. It scared me a little to see what we may have had instead of that wonderful man.
