We had a free trail month of Netflix this month. It was really fun! Jason and I typically don’t watch many movies…in fact, I don’t think we even went to the movies one time while we were dating. It’s not that we don’t like them…we do. So, I am not really sure what that’s about, just an interesting observation. So here is what we have watched this month and a quick observation of what I thought about them:
The Pursuit of Happyness – good, but very depressing. Seemed like the poor man couldn’t get a break! But thankfully there was victory at the end.
Happy Feet – Disappointing. so many people talked about it, I thought it would be better. I mean the little guy was cute, but his dancing bit got old after a while. And I didn’t care for all the new agey feel of the movie.
The Holiday – Liked it. Kind of slow. But great story line.
The Guardian – I actually didn’t watch it. Jason liked it.
Just Like Heaven – I really liked this one. I just love Reese Witherspoon! She is so non-pretentious. And the story was really cute and sweet.
Failure to Launch – quirky but cute. Too much like “How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days”, so not very unique. But fun to watch.
The Cutting Edge – I used to ice-skate competitively growing up, so I enjoy watching movies like this. But, I must say I was amazed by the language and even partial nudity in this teenie-bop movie! Not the best acting either. I liked the story though.
The Bachelor – It was O.K. nothing real special or even note-worthy.
One Night with the King – LOVED IT! Pleasantly surprised. Usually bible history based movies make me snore, but this one was very well done. Kept me intriqued and even was renewing to my faith to see God’s hand at work in that story! Plus our church just went through a series on Esther, so that made it even more enlightening.
And last night, we watched “Garden State” – Very Bizarre. Not a real fan of their use of the F-word. The story was intriguing enough to keep me watching.
So, have you seen any of these movies? What did you think?
