while in maui, and while traveling to/from we watched these movies:
dry. you need a good attention span for this movie, had i not been on an airplane, i may have turned it off or got up and walked out.
at times, it is strangely enjoyable. my favorite part is when he goes off on one of his tangents, he babbles about polar bears, i can’t remember the exact words but it went something like this…
“When polar bears hunt they crouch down by a hole in the ice and wait for a seal to pop up. They keep one paw over their noses so they blend in, because they have those black noses. They’d blend in perfectly if not for the nose. So the question is, how do they know their noses are black? From looking at other polar bears? Do they see their reflections in the water and think, “I’d be invisible if not for that?” That seems like a lot of thinking for bears.”
edge of darkness
typical revenge/thriller movie. at one moment i nearly flew out of my seat. geoff, jen, dusty, and i shared an entire box of chocolate covered cinnamon bears, made the movie slightly better. 😉
one bonus of a true story is learning something you didn’t know. i didn’t know anything about gordon stewart northcott. i really liked clint eastwood’s ‘gran torino’ and this one adds to my list for him. it’s jaw-dropping gruesome at times, but it’s a true story, they are just acting out the facts.
when in rome
it’s a good thing josh duhamel is good on the eyes, because that is all this movie has going for it. i think kristen bell is a doll, but my husband disagrees, so he really thought it was a romance comedy lacking all the romance and comedy stuff.
