They say what you do on the first day of the new year is what you’ll do the most all year. If so, we’re going to be movie-watching fools!
So far, we’ve seen Terminator 1, 2, and 4 (let’s just forget 3 ever happened, okay?); Jet Li’s Fearless; GI Joe; and G-Force. GI Joe and Terminator Salvation were on our new Blue-Ray player. Call me a heathen, but I really can’t tell much of a difference between DVD and Blue-ray. I splurged on Constantine on Blue-Ray, and I just watched it a week or so ago on DVD, so I’m hoping I’ll be stunned and amazed at the difference when I watch it again.
GI Joe was a sad disappointment — we didn’t even finish it. We’ll definitely be taking it to a trade-in/used shop.
The monsters loved G-Force but I had my headset on through most of it.
I enjoyed Terminator Salvation, although #2 is still my favorite. I loved how they brought the traditional lines back with new life. When John Connor said “I’ll be back” I had to laugh, and we all cheered when THE Terminator we all know and love made a brief appearance. The overall plot was a bit expected. e.g. the “surprises” weren’t really surprises at all. But we still enjoyed it.
Still on the upcoming list to watch are District 9 (blue-ray) and Resident Evil.
Tomorrow we were supposed to go Granny’s for Thanksgiving/Christmas, but we’ve had several inches of snow and we’ve decided to reschedule for next weekend. Since I already took tomorrow off from the Evil Day Job, and Princess Monster’s birthday is the 5th, I think we’ll take the monsters to see Princess and the Frog. That Man and I are wondering if we could sneak out to see Sherlock Holmes, but I don’t think the monsters are quite old enough for that yet. Le sigh.
I haven’t read anything in 2010 yet and stil have several from 2009 I really need/want to read. Have you read a great new release in 2010 that I should put on my list?
