Impromptu Movie Reviews

Movies We Watched Over Thanksgiving:

Live Free Or Die Hard - Amusing action movie. Some really improbable stunts, but some good lines. Overall, not a bad way to spend two hours.

Spiderman 3 - Almost kid acceptable. A few curse words, but for the most part, we could let Supergirl watch it. Cute, kinda mindless, again - not a bad way to spend two hours.

Mr. Brooks - Really good. It stars four actors I hate (Kevin Costner, William Hurt, Demi Moore, and Dane Cook) and I still really liked it. The interaction between Costner and Hurt makes the film. And there's a couple of really great lines.

Protecting the King - You've never heard of it. For a reason. It's just simply awful. Tells the story of Elvis' stepbrother, who became the youngest bodyguard in rock and roll when he guarded Elvis. He's basically a punk who goes on tour and lives it up, drinking, drugging and screwing groupies. His life parallels Elvis' spiral out of control and he winds up unemployed at 22 when Elvis dies.


In other news, Supergirl did a face plant off the back steps yesterday. She's fine, but her nose is scratched all to hell. She looks awful. Poor little mite. So much for Christmas pictures.
