Get out the popcorn

Hey everyone,

Husband and I are not big movie watchers.  In fact, I think we’ve seen three (yeah, 3) total in the time we’ve been dating and/or married (almost 7 years).  They were:

A Walk to Remember (I’m risking offending a lot of you here, but I did NOT like that movie.  It was wretchedly boring and predictable.  A lot of my girl friends had been to see it like 6 times and told me I simply had to see it.  Wished I’d saved my $1.50.)

Ocean’s 12 (while I loved 11 and 13 was okay, 12 bit it big-time.  Again, wish I’d saved my $1.50…)

The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe (so good that we now own it)

Lately, Husband has been saying he wants to see a movie in a theater again.  I’m game, but finding a flick we both want to see is often hard.  I’ll give you a list of some movies we’ve both liked and then…here’s the kicker…I need YOUR RECOMMENDATIONS!  What’s out there?  I don’t even know.  What’s a hit?  What’s a snore?   Here’s the list.  We’ve both enjoyed:

The Italian Job
Ocean’s 11 and 13
The Bourne movies
Stranger Than Fiction
13 Going on 30 (don’t tell Husband that I told you he didn’t mind that one)
The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe

I do not like gore of ANY kind (I covered my eyes for part of the Narnia movie, for example), and Husband doesn’t like priss of any kind (read: no Jane Austen movies where there’s lots of foufy dancing and no musicals).  So…help!

  1. Hmmm… just movies in the theaters? I liked “I Am Legend.” Post-apocalyptic Will Smith. I wasn’t blown away by it, but I enjoyed it and don’t want my money back. :oP

  2. Yeah, I heard that’s good, too. Also – I hear REALLY good things about “Atonement.” That’s one that we’ll probably see in the theater. I know it’s war-time… so not sure about the gore. I bet you could pretty quickly find a trailer online.

  3. Hi,
    I found your blog through your comment on Big Mama (doesn’t she crack you up?).

    You and your husband sound a lot like us. I can’t stand gore (even mild) & my husband can’t stand too much mush. The “Ocean’s” movies are on our top 10 list too!

    So how about National Treasure: Book of Secrets. We enjoyed the first one, but haven’t seen this one. WIth 2 little ones it will probably be a renter for us. But, it sounds like it might fit the bill.

    Good Luck!

  4. But will Atonement be too “lovey” for Husband? Juno thumbs up. Atonement rocks. Liked I am Legend, didnt love it. Looking forward to Fools Gold. Jury is still out on Mad Money.

    Thats that!
