I did not enjoy this movie. I thought the plot was stupid and unbelievable. While I never complain about watching Mark Walberg, this movie was a bit too ridiculous for me. Dan, however, loved it, so don't take my word for it.
Angela recommend that we watch this movie, and I am so glad that we finally did! I know its an older film, but what rock was I living under? All the actors were amazing and the story was compelling. If you haven't already watched this movie, it is a must! (Note: I know there is a much older "origional" of this movie. I haven't watched that either!)
Friday Night Lights
I was really excited to watch this movie because I loved the television series so much. Plus, a lot of the television cast made appearances in the movie, so I figured it would be just as good! Boyyyy was I disappointed. What a terrible film. Its amazing that the television series ever came to light because I cannot imagine any television executive thinking that this movie would make a good series.
We Bought a Zoo
This movie came out of left field for me. I actually didn't really want to watch it but we downloaded it to watch on our trip to New York and we both loved it! I was really surprised at how funny it was. I should have known it would be good because Matt Damon almost always seems to pick good movies (coughtakeahintbenafflack).
I have an embarrassing confession to make, I have never actually watched the original Footloose. I know! Its terrible! However, despite this embaressing admission, I still really enjoyed the movie- although I am sure the origional is better. Also Julianna Hugh is a surprisingly decent actress.

Recently, we haven't been watching a ton of movies because we have been catching up on television. Our current obsession has been Boardwalk Empire, do any of you watch it? I was a bit hesitant to watch it at first, but now I am obsessed. We watched the whole first season in a week. I can't wait for the second season to come out on DVD!
Until the second season of Boardwalk Empire comes out on DVD, we are embarking on the "Summer of West Wing," which basically just means we will be rewatching the entire series. This will be the third full watch-through, but its our favorite series and we still love it!
Have you seen any good movies lately?
