WW -- what have I been doing with my time?

5/5 stars...really disturbing, kind of in the Mystic River realm

4/5 stars -- funny and cute



3/5 -- made me cry

3/5 made me cry too (ok, so I cry a lot)
4/5 This we actually saw in a theatre...like a grown up date and all. Funny, and cerebral. It reminded me of my relationship with my own father. He was on the brilliant side, me, not so much. Like the movie, we dealt with each other with an abundance of sarcasm...for example --a conversation I had with my father that went like this:
Dad: Tess (he called me Tess, Tesa, or Tracey, depending on his mood) You are like an old woman, you worry too much.
Me: Well someone has to be an adult in this relationship.
This movie has a couple conversations along the same realm. Certainly made me laugh.

I'm thinking I quite haven't gotten the whole Wordless Wednesday concept down.

Ah...the real reason you didn't want to walk with us...you'd hit pause on the DVD player and didn't want to have to restart.

Your secret is safe with me...and the blog world!

I too thought No Reservations was interesting but a bit "flat". could have been great, instead was just medium rare.

Oh...I have only seen one of these movies...


It was P.S...I love you...truth is I am still getting over that one....what a tear jerker.....I could hardly hear the movie for all the sobbing in the theatre...LOL....

You crack me up!! Hey...Tess is one of my nicknames too! I love it!

I have P.S. I Love You from Netflix right now...just trying to find time to watch it! Thanks for the waterworks warning. I hate crying...it always give me a sinus headache! :)

tz said...

ok martha you found me out...and yes, i thought the same thing about no reservations...could have been so much better

danielle p.s. is so one of those 'i need to hug my hubby' type of movies...have you seen 'truely madly deeply' it's a british movie and it is so good, along the same lines

Vanessa said...

Thanks for suggesting some great movies for my Netflix list! I wanted to see No Reservations and PS I love you for some time now.

Amazing. I'm 0 for 5. Have not seen any of those movies, but Gone Baby Gone is on my Netflix list.

Smart People sounds good - I sometimes think I am the least mature person in our house...

I've seen the first 3 of these movies. I really liked Gone, Baby Gone and 27 Dresses. No Reservations was ok, but I definitely agree that it could have been better. I've been on the fence about whether I want to see P.S....I love you. I read the book and loved it and I'm afraid the movie might not be as good. It sounds like it might be worth seeing after all :)

Dodi said...

I'm so behind! I've only seen 27 dresses... which I thought was so cute!

jenelle said...

Thanks for the movie reviews and for stopping by my blog. If we ever get around to watching a non-animated movie we might try one of these out...

I really liked No Reservations. I wanted to see 27 Dresses, but that title just had chick flick written all over it, so Hubby declined. Too bad it wasn't named something like Manly Man Saves Damsel with Clothing Obsession -- I might have gotten him to go see THAT!

tz said...

Laura...not sure about PS Ilove you because I didn't read the book...but not having read the book it was sad but there was something lacking for me...


dodi..you so need a movie day for yourself, just hole up and watch a bunch of them....very theraputic

janelle...my movie time is when the kiddos are in school and I'm folding laundry

Sandra...Jason and I alternate who gets to see what when we go out..but at home I'm in charge of netflix...but that also means I'm watching movies myself...we do have Soylent Green here though..he's pretty much watching that one himself :-)
