Movies in Review...

I have actually gotten to go and see a few movies in the past couple of weeks--some at home, some in the theatre. I was needing to GET OUT so it was good to do so! Being at home with smallish children for long amounts of time makes this mama a wee bit loco! Here's what I've seen and a rating...
Baby Mama: Cute, predictable, average, not as good as Knocked Up!. I did catch myself cracking up out loud a few times though. Would've been just as good on your home TV as it was in the theater. 3 stars out of 5

Forgetting Sarah Marshall: Stars Jason Segel and Kristen Bell; I wish someone would've told me that this one has full frontal nudity of a DUDE! (And he's certainly NOT ALL THAT to see.....now if it was Matthew McConaughey that would be a different story.) I was in shock and apparently the only person on Earth who had no clue that this was in the movie! It has some funny parts, but a lot of it is just tacky humor if you ask me (and this is coming from a person who thought Superbad was hil-freaking-larious). I would give it 2.5 stars out of 5. It was a compromise for me and the husband........he wanted to see Iron Man and I didn't. Definitely a rental if you are bored.......

The Good Shepard (home rental): Drama; stars Matt Damon & Angelina Jolie among others. It is really good, long and you have to actually watch it to really get it. It has a somewhat complex story line (meaning I had to has my husband what the hell was going on a few times). It is kind of hard to understand what the characters are saying b/c there are some strong accents (Russian) so we ended up putting the closed captioning on (like old people) to make sure we were getting it. I would give it 4.5 stars out of 5


Juno (home rental): starring Ellen Page and the dorky guy from Superbad.....I think I might be the very last person to see this movie. What can I say? It was great! Great music too! 5 out of 5 stars
(and yes, it is bothering me that Juno is on the LH side and the others are centered in the middle--I don't know how to fix it so if you do, comment to me and help me--it won't let me delete it either!!!! argh)

I thought we rented something else, but I guess that is it. It is rare for us to get to see so many movies that close together. My parents were visiting some of that time so we had a date night one night! I do love movie popcorn. It is so yummy! (Don't know why I got off track and onto the popcorn track---food and my one track mind!)

So, there you have it--MAPG's Movies in Review ....let me know if you've seen them and what you thought or if you have some other movies I need to see!

I haven't seen Juno, either! I am about to add it to my Netflix. I just watched P.S. I Love You the other night and bawled my eyed out. It is really good!

I really liked "Baby Mama," but agree it wasn't as good as "Knocked Up." I loved "Juno!"

I really want to see Baby Mama! When I go to the movies I HAVE to get popcorn, milk duds, a large diet coke AND 1-2 hotdogs! Yes, I love to eat hot dogs at the movies.

I just rented Juno on Saturday night so you were not the last person on earth to see it. It was so good. I have already downloaded the soundtrack from iTunes.

Fun! Good to know about Forgetting Sarah Marshall - I figured it would be a rental at best, but may pass all together. I loved Juno & The Good Shepherd too & can't wait to see Baby Mama!

Thanks so much for the tip about Sarah Marshall. It looked so crazy funny on the preview. Don't feel bad-you are definitely as behind on the movies as me...I still haven't seen Superbad (well, or Juno or Baby Mama....)

Juno is the bomb. I am glad you saw it. I really think it is one of the best in a long time.
