Movie Reviews

While I was home the other week, my mom and I saw Water for Elephants.  We both loved it.  I will admit that I shed a few tears.  I don't do well with cruelty of any kind.

First of all, I was so nice to see Robert Pattinson as a "normal" character and not pasty white.  Reese Witherspoon was stunning as usual.  She definitely captured the glamour of the 1920s and 1930s.  Being a history buff, I loved the time period.  As we were walking out, I told my mom that I wanted to go to the circus.  She said I am such a little kid.

Last night, Elizabeth and I saw Something Borrowed as part of our recovery from the weekend.

This movie was like watching my future self.  Favorite line of the movie: "You are not old, you are just a lawyer."  Is that what I have to look forward to? Gah!  True Life: Single, Thirty, and No Prospects.  Lets hope not.  I loved all the law school references and witty banter.

I wonder who my "Dex" will be?

I recommend y'all go see both movies, if you have not seen them.  If you have seen them, what are your thoughts?



  1. I loved Something Borrowed. A lot. I am afraid to see Water for Elephants because I might develop a crush on Robert Pattinson -- he actually has skin tone in that movie. Eeek.

  2. I haven't seen either yet but I am dying to!

  3. Oh! I really really want to see BOTH of these! I've read both books and they were SO GOOD! :)

  4. i LOVEDDDDDD water for elephants. it was so good. and Robert Pattinson was freakin gorgeous as a human being. ha i still need to see something borrowed.. can't wait

  5. I want to see both of these! I will probably wait until Water for Elephants is out on DVD though, because I want to read the book first!

  6. I've read Something Borrowed, but haven't seen it yet. I recently saw Bridesmaids and that was super funny!


Thanks for stopping by! I love all your comments, they honestly make my day.
