purple fish guts

Monday, March 07, 2005


We've been watching quite a few movies lately. Mostly because we signed up for the Hollywood Video MVP plan. It's one of those plans where you pay them 10 or 15 bucks a month and you get to rent pretty much whatever you want. You generally have to wait a few weeks for the new releases. But hey.... when you've already waited a few months for it to be released on DVD.... what's a couple more weeks?

We've sort of settled into the routine of getting 3 movies twice a week. Two kid movies and one daddy movie... or one kid movie, one daddy movie, and one mommy movie... or two daddy movies and one movie that mommy might tolerate.... it just depends on who's running errands on any given day. Sometimes we watch them... sometimes we don't.

Currently showing:

Secret Window -- daddy movie -- I like Johnny Depp but the story was lame. It started out well.... but then it just died. I guess I was hoping for a John Grisham ending and I got the Stephen King ending.

Barbie as The Princess and the Pauper -- kid movie -- Ack! Ack! The singing Barbie just returned.... and now we have to watch the movie too?

Terminal -- mommy movie -- Haven't watched it yet, but I'm skeptical. It is a chick-flick after all.... and my mom liked it. Two strikes.
