Many Movies

We’re in the middle of a movie bender because of the long Memorial Day weekend and a clump of requests that came in to the library from my reserve queue. I’m struggling to keep up with life basics (must remember: a shower is not a privilege, it is a SOCIAL CONTRACT*) so don’t have time to review each one individually. So.

Kung Fu Panda (2008). With the kids on DVD. They loved it. So did my husband and I. “There is no charge for awesomeness.”

Jane Eyre (2011). Moms’ night out. Loved how literally dark it was, and how strong and sassy Jane was. They did not use the famous line, “Reader, I married him.” Because it wouldn’t have made sense. Judi Dench as Mrs. Fairfax brought a minor character her due.

Kung Fu Panda 2
(2011). With the kids in a theater with extraordinarily expensive popcorn and pop. Total for one adult and 2 child tickets, 2 kid combos, a Fresca (mmm, ester of wood rosin) and a small popcorn: $37.50. Again, very entertaining. “I’m gonna need a hat.”

Exit Through the Gift Shop (2010) with my husband on DVD, part of a clump that came into the library from my request list. Weird. Fascinating. Fun to watch. More than a little head-tilting, though. Huh? What?

More to come. I’m not sure my movie/book balance is going to hold for long.

*Hat tip, LA for this phrase.
