Another Western, another day. I think I just finished a class at school that fits the theme of this movie perfectly, ethics and values. Would you do something good- just because? Love that Christian Bale but ya probably should've taken the thousand dollars and ran like hell. I give 3:10 to Yuma 3 out of 5 bibles.
I was unprepared for this movie. I knew it was a documentary about the pro-life stance on abortion, I did NOT know they usegraphic images to persuade people to their side. This group of people compares the images and how they show them to the crucifixion of Christ. Interesting.
I'm fairly certain I will be the last person on this planet to read these books, but I've been busy with school and work and a baby and a husband and seriously people get off my back already!!! Anyway- I'm excited because the copy I ordered just arrived in the mail and if I had ADHD like everyone else I know I could start it right away. Unfortunately I have to finish the book I'm reading before I can begin another one....(Which by the way is The 13th Tale) Also: today is the last day of the semester and this morning we took McKenzie to storybook time at the local library. God Bless You Crazy Library Lady!!
Amy, Will, McKenzie, & I went to the park. I unfortunately did not get a good picture of the death slide but seriously, why haven't more kids been killed? Of course besides the swings- McKenzie loved death slide and we went on it over and over. Don't worry it's like 35 degrees outside and we biked there! We're DESPERATE for summer or something like it.
Why is it that every great movie comes from a great book, and now I have to read it? Crap. I cried at the end, I'm still not sure if it is because of the movie or the underlying theme we can all relate to regarding forgiveness. Sometimes no matter what you do or the reasons you do things you can never achieve "atonement" for them. Perhaps the atonement that Briony received was her eventual death, maybe not. Keira Knightley has and always will remind me of my cousin Jessica, very pretty. I think the guy in this plays Jane Austen's lover in Becoming Jane, I like him who ever he is....I give Atonement 4 out of 5 typewriters.
The Office is better than: 1. The soupy part of a chocolate oreo shake (from Dairy Keen, no other substitutions allowed) 2. Clean sheet day 3. Any other show on Television 4. Dare I say it...No 5. The cold side of the pillow
P.S. I totally thought he was going to do it!!!!!!
Alas, bunco was at my house last night!! I hope everyone had a good time- I know I did! Thank you to Amylee and Terra for the continual ringing in my ears via their "subtle" hints that they or someone at their table had bunco. Congratulations to Amber on getting out of the house only four days after giving birth (who looked great by the way). I did nothing for at least a week following the birth of McKenzie for fear of my vagina falling out. You C-Section people have no clue what I'm talking about. See ya next month girls!!
For once in my life I don't know what to say. I LOVED this movie!! The scene between the sheriff (Tommy Lee Jones) and Ellis (Barry Corbin) in the kitchen, is the best movie scene in existence. I respect everyone out there who refrain from watching rated "R" movies (and I know more than one person) but this movie will never be the same when it is edited for content. I give No County for Old Men five out of five "lucky" quarters. P.S. The quarters do have a say!
$337.00: Monthly expense for health insurance $10.00: Amount for two containers of pedialite $5.00: Children's Tylenol $9.00: Adult's Pain Reliever $15.00: Co-pay @ doctor's office Miracle cure that allows your child (& yourself) to sleep through the night: Price-oh wait, doesn't exist and never will...
"It's just something that will have to run it's course" -Dr. Webster. P.S. Does anyone know for a fact that wearing a bra to bed is a health risk? I'm serious about this topic and would appreciate any additional information.
This is rated R for a reason. I love Joaquin Phoenix, don't worry Heath knows. The only movie I didn't like him in was Gladiator, bad character. Anyway- this movie was ok. These are the only reasons to see it: 1.about cops 2.mr. phoenix was in it & 3.the ending wasn't crappy. I give We Own the Night two out of five well ya-know....
