Christmas break= Movie time. Here is my take on what I have seen. And my ratings of them according to what I would pay to see them again.

Marley & Me. Such a cute movie. I truly loved it. It made me Sad. Laugh. Cry. Think. Happy. Hopeful. It made me happy to not have a dog. It made me want a dog. It brought back sad memories of when we had to put dear ol' Snuffy down. Thank goodness I wasn't sobbing like the lady across the aisle from me. I really want to read the book now.

I would pay $$$$$$$$$$ to see it again.

(Not really a family movie! Due to a little bit of loving and Jennifer Aniston skinny dipping.)

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.

I don't know what to think. It was a very interesting story. Long. And slow. A little weird at parts. Inappropriate at some. But funny at others.

I am glad to have seen it. But don't think I have any desire to see it again.

Eagle Eye.
I really liked it. It was pretty action packed. I was confused. Wondering what was going to happen next. And satisfied at the end with what happened. The fact that I only paid $3.50 to see it probably made it that much more enjoyable.

I would pay $$$ to see it again.

Twilight. I had read the book. And wasn't too impressed. I had no desire to read the rest. But I did want to see the movie. Although the acting was cheesy. And the makeup was horrible. I really liked it. And it actually made me want to read the rest of the books. (New Moon down. 1/3 way through Eclipse). Read them. Unless you are lactose intolerant. Because they are loaded with a LOT of cheese.

I would pay $$$$$$ to see this movie again.

umm- hello- when did you go see all these movies without me? how rude. I did see marley and me with my sis in laws. I cried a lot. but quietly. I wanted a dog. and I don't want a dog. I laughed I cried. and that is all I have seen. because no one is inviting me to go see any.

I only saw Benjamin Buttons and every word you said were my thoughts exactly. I do want to see Marley and Me.

i wish you were here so you could go to movies with me! i want to go see bride wars with you :(

jud and i watched eagle eye over the weekend too, but we only paid a $1 at redbox. it wasn't my favorite movie, but i suppose it was worth the $1. or if you divde the $1 between jud and i, it was 50 cents a person, and it was worth that for sure.

still haven't seen or read twilight.

Definitely read Marly and is way better than the movie. So sad that I rarely get the chance to actually see a movie!! We should try and go together sometime. :)
