seen any good movies lately?



Premonition

Linda Hanson (Sandra Bullock) has a premonition her husband is going to die. Was it a dream? Was it real? Should she try to stop it? Lots of deja vu, trying to put it all together, it was kind of like Groundhog Day gone bad... Overall a good suspenseful movie, not sure til the end what really did happen.



The Last Mimzy

A good one for kid of all ages, a little fantasy, a little science fiction, magic, aliens, neat toys, a chase scene, great fun.


Man of the year

The perfect role for Robin Williams - a comedian host of a political talk show. When his fans urge him to run for president, the fun really begins. At times you can imagine that no script was involved, just give him a topic and let him run with it, as Robin Williams can do so well. A well-rounded story, much better than anticipated from the marketing.


Wild Hogs

Lots of fun in this one, proof once again that the critics' D+ rating means nothing. Great to see these guys once again, John Travolta, Tim Allen and gang. There's nothing like a Road Trip!



Never Again

Described as When Harry Met Sally for 50 year olds... Jill Clayburgh and Jeffrey Tambor star in this romantic comedy about two people who have said never again to falling in love. Some great comedic scenes in this one!

The only one we've seen so far was the Robin Williams "Man of the Year" which we thought was a very apropros film for the times. It seems as if politicos are campaigning ALL THE TIME now, even if the election is two years away. We really get sick of it.

Will have to wait until the rest come out on DVD because we haven't been to the movies in over a year. As a matter of fact, can't remember the last movie we saw at the theater.

We've seen a lot of good ones on DVD and satellite TV lately. I love movies, don't you?

Thanks for the movie reviews Susan. The only movie on your list that I have seen is Wild Hogs and that was really funny. It made me want to take a trip out west again.

I just finished watching Man of the Year and enjoyed it. I think I'll try Premonition next.
