Movie Tuesday 11/30

Posted Nov 30 2010 6:23pm
Oops...I totally forgot Movie Monday yesterday.  I don't know how I could have overlooked it...maybe something to do with the 400 e-mails and all the urgent tasks waiting for me after vacation.

Re-entry into the real world has been tough, as always.  I couldn't get to sleep last night because my brain was spinning with to-do lists, things to remember, drafts of things I need to write, etc.  So, as a result, I felt pretty crappy today and spent the day on the couch (though still working all day on the laptop - a mistake, I know).  I just cancelled out on dinner and book group tonight with my two closest friends.  I know it was the right decision because I feel more relief than disappointment (even though I love those evenings out!).  So, I'm back here on our saggy couch, having shared take-out pizza with Ken and the boys, still very achy and knowing I made the right choice.  Looking forward to watching Glee tonight (I'm a new convert) and going to bed early.

So, obviously not a lot of time for movies while on vacation last week (none in fact), but we did watch one before the trip and one this weekend
  • While Ken was in Europe, I watched Dirty Rotten Scoundrels with Jamie and Craig, that classic silly movie starring Steve Martin and Michael Caine.  They loved it, as I knew they would!  We've been watching a lot of movies featuring scams and capers lately.
  • This weekend, Ken and I watched The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, which I had seen before at a little independent theater with my neighbor and book group buddy.  Ken recently read the wildly popular 3-book series, so I knew he'd enjoy the movie.  Both the books and the Swedish movies are excellent, though they are quite disturbing at times, as they include some gruesome murders and brutal rape - not for everyone.  I can't imagine the Hollywood versions could be any better - but I'm sure I will see them when they come out!
Have you seen any good movies lately?
