Movie Weekend

For the family that rarely sits thru a movie, it's been a Movie Weekend!

First, Brian and I saw Les Miserables on Friday night, finally!  It was the first time I had seen it, though we have tickets to see it on stage in April.  (Happy Anniversary to us!)  It was fantastic!  Well, except for the part of Russell Crowe playing the inspector.  Hubby and I are in agreement, Russell Crowe is one hell of an actor, but he's not a singer.  But Hugh Jackman?  MAN!  And Ann Hathaway too.  Sacha Baron Cohen and Helena Bonham Carter as the inkeeper and the inkeeper's wife was spot on, too.

Then last night Tracy came over and I made chili for the three of us, and Tracy and I sat down and finally watched the last Harry Potter movie while Brian watched the Flyers on the other side of the house.  I know that the rest of the world has aleady seen the movies and read the books.  I enjoyed the movie, but the final death scene felt anticlimactic.  The special effects were fantastic, though.  Now I'm just sad because I have nothing Harry Potter left.  :(

If there wasn't another Flyers game on tonight, I'd watch another movie.  I need to get back to my "Five Classic Movies" list item.

I finally saw Les Miserables too, a few weeks ago! I'm like you, rarely sit through a movie, but I figured that was one I HAD to see. I've never seen the musical and didn't know much about the story...and the movie did not disappoint! However, I totally agree with you and Brian, Russell Crowe's singing is something I can live without hearing again.
