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.
I took my kids to Percy Jackson too and I enjoyed a lot. I've only read the beginning of the book and since that wasn't the same as the movie, I pretty much figured the rest of the movie would be different. The star was adorable - and I loved how he stood up for his mom. My five year old was a little bit scared, but my 8yo loved it. I think Ashton Kutcher is hot too can't wait to see Valentine. Hope you feel better soon.ReplyDelete
I love movie days! I'm glad you enjoyed Valentine's day, I was really interested in it... and who doesn't love Ashton?! Of course his part will be the best *chuckles*ReplyDelete
Haven't read or seen the Percy Jackson flick but definitely intrigued!
I'm thinking about reading Percy Jackson first before seeing the movie... I understand that they changed the ages and such for the movie. But it looks good.ReplyDelete
I also saw Valentine's Day this weekend and I was shocked at how much I enjoyed it. I laughed, I even had a tear fall toward the end, and I adored Ashton Kutcher! I thought he did a great job, and his character was adorable. (I'm also a HUGE Jennifer Garner fan, which is why I really went to see it, but Ashton stole the show.)
I've heard great things about Valentines Day and terrible things about Percy Jackson. For people that really loved the books, it was too hard to get over the changes. (So I've heard, I've yet to see it myself.) But my kids are dying to see it so despite my reservations, we'll probably go. I'm glad to hear something positive about it! =]ReplyDelete
Those are the 2 movies I've been wanting to see. I better hop to it or they'll be gone from the theatres before I get there.ReplyDelete
I haven't seen either. I hadn't heard good things about Valentine's Day, so I thought I'd wait until video. Maybe I'll take the kids to the other one.ReplyDelete
Can't wait for Percy Jackson, and I agree Valentines Day was awesome. Get feeling better, lady!ReplyDelete
Don't hate me, but I actually was disappointed in Percy Jackson. I think it was just because it strayed so, so far from the books. I'm a purest when it comes to that type of stuff. Good thing the actor was so adorable, cuz that was the only thing that redeemed it for me.ReplyDelete
My husband and I were going to see Percy Jackson this weekend for our "Valentine's Day date." It was that or Lovely Bones. Mount Olympus or psycho killer.ReplyDelete
I haven't seen either yet, but I'm quite curious to see both, so I appreciate the reviews!ReplyDelete
