Here at CasaS, anytime we can sleep late it's a good weekend. And there were TWO sleep late days this weekend. Double good. Woo Hoo!
PapaC and I went to the movies this weekend to see the new Indiana Jones movie. I know, I know, Harrison Ford is older. Well, Indiana Jones was never about reality, now was it? We completely enjoyed it. It was good to see Karen Allen back, and not tarted up as younger than she is. In fact, I thought that was true of all the leads. They let them be the ages that they were. Certainly Indiana Jones could do more than the average 62 year old. But then he did more than the average 42 year old, back in the day.
Overall, we thought it was a fun time. No Indiana Jones movies is Oscar-worthy, but it was a fun way to spend a hot afternoon.
Oh, and we have also been to see Iron Man, which Smock reviewed so glowingly in this space after she saw it. I was still hesitant. I mean, come on. Robert Downey, Jr.? Ick.
But I'm a convert. He was perfect. The movie was wonderful. I love comic book movies, even the ones that aren't so good (yes, Hell-Boy, I'm talking about you!). So, CasaS reiterates Smock's thumbs up rating. If you haven't seen it, it's a good 'un.
Watching the previews made me look forward to summer movies. And I haven't done that in a l-o-o-o-o-o-o-n-g time. Usually I am content to watch on DVD. But this summer? I want to see Dark Knight, Get Smart (shades of my growing up!), Hancock, The Incredible Hulk, WallE from Pixar, The Happening by M. Night Shyamalan, because I still LOVE him, and (said very softly so that no one will hear) I will probably see Step Brothers, because I'm a big enough person to admit that Talledega Nights, the Ballad of Ricky Bobby made me laugh out loud in the movies. So there.
Anyway, we also watched I am Legend on DVD this weekend. I am such a Will Smith fan. I think his performance in this was amazing, especially once you realize just how much of the movie he carried all by himself. He's a man with talent. And lots of it. Definitely worth your rental $.
