Movie review, book review, etc

I have seen some odd ass movies lately. First was "Onegin." I was so bored that I felt myself falling asleep after just 30 minutes. After I caught myself dozing the third time, I realized the movie sucked and promptly sent it back to Netflix. I also saw "Donnie Darko." Odd movie, but I enjoyed it. Jake Gyllenhall was the star. His sister was also in it. Don't read the synopsis of the movie because when you get to the phrase "demonic bunny" you will put it down but it's actually good. LOL The hubs and I went to go see "Silent Hill." Such an utter waste of time. I mean, so many part of it were never tied together. There were these weird ass human/alien life form type things that attacked people - well as much as one can attack when it looks like you are encased in cocoon. Um, no. I was not pleased.

Book 20 was Beach Road by James Patterson. I managed to score the book a day before it was released. :) The hubs read it in like 2 or 3 days. I then read it in a day. Nice twist at the end that I won't ruin for y'all. I am a hardcore Patterson fan, so this was right up my alley.

Today was a long ass day. I still have two more reports to do and just have no energy. This past weekend was just one giant food fest and I suspect that my lethargy is due to that. Friday night we went to dinner with my husband's brother in law at Cheesecake Bistro. Three guesses what we ended that meal with. Saturday we ended up eating pizza. Sunday we went to lunch with my friend, Karen, and at like pigs yet again. That is such a dangerous habit for me. I mean, I worked so hard to get out of the "it's always a celebration" habit and lost 17 pounds in the process. I have gained 3 of those pounds back and if I don't stop, there will be more to come and it won't be cute.

I am off to finish dinner. Catch y'all later.

I saw Silent Hill this past weekend...such a waste of money! And time! I'm still trying to figure out a lot of that movie....

I think that I have seen too few movies recently and most of those have been my DVD collection which I am viewing again and again.

Over the weekend I did catch on TV an old movie about King Solomon and the Queen of Sheba in which a young (and head full of hair—probably fake) Yul Brynner played Solomon. The plot was terrible, but at 3:00 a.m. what can we expect?

Iloved Donnie Darko in a freaky bizzare kind of way. Ihave Beach Road all lined up for this weekend! Hubby is working, I'm planning on catching up on tivo and reading!

OK, SFG. I saw Donnie Darko last weekend. It was a very strange movie, but it was good. I think I need to watch it again...it seems like one of those movies that you have to watch a couple of times to really get it.
