So…. Saturday night, my parents were going out to dinner for my mother’s birthday and my sister was going to a camp out sleep over. I was all alone…. SO- I decided to ride my bike up to rent some DVDs. Now, I hardly do things like that alone, so applaud me (clap-clap-clap). I rented Welcome To Mooseport, Stuck On You, and Tokyo Godfathers. I also bought some Milk Duds and Sweet Tarts (yum!).
While my parents were out, I watched Welcome To Mooseport. I thought it was pretty good. It wasn’t hilarious, but I liked the characters and the strangeness of some parts of it. When my parents got home, my mother and I watched Tokyo Godfathers, which was GREAT! It’s in anime and is in Japanese with English subtitles. It’s about three homeless people in Tokyo who find an abandoned baby. They want to find its parents and find out why they abandoned it. It has humor, it has action, it has adventure, it has drama! Great movie!
Sunday afternoon, my friend and I went to see The Day After Tomorrow. It was less corny than the preview made it look, so that was good. Some bits of it were a little corny, but the rest of it was pretty good, so it didn’t really matter. There were some scary scenes and scenes with really nice special effect thingies. It must have taken so much money to make! One thing about the movie that I found interesting was how that the people in it had to go completely against our morals and beliefs in order to survive. Example: burning books, going over the Mexican border, and I don’t want to give any more away!
After the movie, my friend and I went to meet is mother at a party store. My friend’s little brother bought one of those thingies that has a clown’s face and then a magnet that drags little pieces of metal so you can give the clown hair and stuff. In the car on the way back, he made the clown version of Hitler by dragging the metal pieces to make one of those short mustaches. It was pretty funny- although, a little wrong. — I just thought I’d mention that, it’s not really relevant to the whole movie theme of this post….
So- anyway, when I got home, I wanted to see Shrek 2. That didn’t really work out, so I decided to watch Stuck On You instead. It was surprisingly really good. Matt Damon and Greg Kinnear were really funny! It was a bit silly, but not as over the top as it could have been. So, yay! I’m catching up on my movies! Now I want to see Shrek 2!
