So, I'm still in the middle of a really long book and haven't had a chance to sit down and finish it. Plus, I've been sick. And as I was staring at the blank screen this morning, trying to think of a post, I gave up and crawled back in bed. That was when I realized that I may not have read a book this week, but I have seen two really good movies in the last couple weeks.
First on the list the star-studded Valentine's Day.
Now normally when they pack a movie this full of stars it's because they're trying to make up for a plot that's lacking. But not the case with this movie. It was so cute and funny. I may be a little impartial because I'm a huge Ashton Kutcher fan. And he didn't fail to disappoint. But even without taking Ashton into account (which is ridiculous, we should always take Ashton into account) it was good. It did get a little busy with so many different story lines (and I had a few that I liked better than others...not necessarily the one with Ashton in it....okay, Ashton's was my favorite story line), but it was neat to see the way they connected them all in the end. It was rated PG 13 for a reason so not necessarily a mommy daughter type movie, but for a girls night out, I recommend it.
Next, I was able to take my kids to Percy Jackson.
First of all can I just say how adorable the star of this movie is. So cute. Second, the movie was very entertaining. It was quite a bit different from the book, but it had the same feel. I took my 3 year old and there were a couple parts that were too scary for him, so keep that in mind if taking little ones. But my older kids and I loved the movie. I recommend it.
