catching up on movies...

Hey guys! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend! I worked most of it, but had last night off, so my husband and I decided to catch up on some award winners!

We poured some glasses of Da Vinci Chianti {YUM} and settled in first to watch The Kids Are All Right, starring Annette Bening, Julianne Moore, and Mark Ruffalo {also the girl who played Alice in Tim Burton's fab production and the boy who was in Bridge to Tarabithia, but anyhoo...}. This one won 2 Golden Globes. And they were well-deserved! I absolutely LOVED this movie! It wasn't pretentious or overtly Hollywood-ized to create excess drama. It was just a story about a family. A lesbian couple who used a sperm donor to conceive their two children, and the children decide they want to find the donor. It is completely believable, and the acting is incredible throughout. I really recommend this movie :)

We then watched The Social Network. I wasn't wildly excited about watching this one, but it won 4 Golden Globes, so I figured I should give it a shot. From an informational perspective, it was really interesting. The history if Facebook was pretty cool. The acting was good as well. But it wasn't exactly riveting. I mean, I don't feel like it was a waste of my time, but it wasn't something I'll be watching again. 

And now, just for fun, I'm watching Charlie St. Cloud :) Not because it's a Golden Globe winner, but because I had a rent 2 get 1 free coupon for Blockbuster Express, and I've been wanting to see it. Zac Efron is some seriously delicious eye candy and a pretty good actor, in my opinion. So anyway, there's my update. 

I still really want to see The King's Speech before the Oscars roll around. And whatever else I have the time for :)

Off to cook! On tonight's menu: Crab Ravioli with Lemon Butter sauce. I'm already drooling...



  1. I haven't seen Social Network either because it never really caught my attention, but I also felt like I must be missing something because it won so many Golden Globes. I suppose I will be watching sometime soon!!
    Oh, and I also really want to see The King's Speech!!!

  2. okay deary we need to have a movie night sometime! I am pretty sure that you guys love movies as much as we do...great summery!

  3. I was very pleasantly surprised with Charlie St. Cloud. Zefron is all grown up...that's for sure! HAHA
