Two Movie Non-Reviews

We have watched two movies in the past five nights which is pretty amazing for us. Life gets in the way and 2 hour movies are a rarity these days! One of the movies we saw was even at the theater ... whoa, nelly.

Here's what we've seen recently if you are looking for some thoughts on movies. This is definitely not a formal "review" because I'm just not that fancayyyyy.

In The Theater:

Jurassic World was surprisingly entertaining and good! If it were left to me, our Thursday night date nite probably would not have included razor-toothed raptors, but Ian and I were shocked at how much we enjoyed this flick. It had some fun throwbacks to the original movie, and it had some parts that were quite funny. Some pretty cheesy lines, too, but that was okay with us.


And I mean.... HEY NOWWWW.


If you get a chance to see this one, I'd say go for it!

At Home:

We saw the previews for Maggie and figured we'd give it a shot. We checked it out from Redbox Saturday night. It has Schwarzenegger in it, and it's safe to say that Ian is a fan and I am just lukewarm about him (if that). But we both enjoyed seeing him in a more gentle, protective, soft-spoken role where he's not crushing metal with his bare hands. It was refreshing to see this side of him. And Abigail Breslin (of Little Miss Sunshine fame) was very good in the role. Certain parts were slow and quiet but overall we thought it was a pretty interesting movie. Nothing crazy good or life-changing, but just entertaining for a low-key evening.



Hit me up with some movie suggestions ... whether it's in the movie theater or rentable, we are always looking for something worthwhile to turn on!

  10. We just watched TWO redbox movies this past weekend- movies are incredibly rare for us as well so that was definitely something different from our norm. We watched Wild and Focus and actually really enjoyed them both.

  11. I can't even remember the last time I made it to a movie theatre! The last movie I watched was Baggage Claim. It was a cute little rom-com.
