Katie and I went to see Up In The Air. It was very good. The story line is a bit depressing and really hit home with us after what Shawn went through this year. I think Katie got a new perspective as to how Shawn may have felt when he got laid off- he didn't really let the girls see how hard and depressing it was for him- we tried to keep it positive at home but there were times that were tough. I thought it ended on a hopeful note and George Clooney does a great job ( doesn't look to shabby either!).
I went out for lunch and to a matinee with my friends Gen, Michelle and Deb to see The Blind Side. This movie is very uplifting - it is based on a true story. I love true story sports movies- they always hit me in the heart. I don't always love Sandra Bullock but she really, really impressed me in this movie- by the second scene I had forgot it was even her playing the role. I would recommend this movie to everyone, it is a great, uplifting story.
This was my favourite movie of the holidays. It may just be my favourite movie of all time. Nicole, Josh and I stood in line for 2 hours to see this and it was well worth it. I knew from the first trailer that I saw that the movie was going to be visually stunning but I had no idea how great it actually would be. The 3D effect is very subtle- you feel like you are in the movie- it is not the old things popping out into you face kind of 3D. I really liked the story, I thought it had a wonderful message and the 3 hours went by in no time. Nicole and everyone else I have talked to all liked the movie and Josh thought it was Da Bomb- high praise there.
So there you have it- my take on a few ways you can spend some free time.
