Tonight we watched Serenity with the Lashlees. We enjoyed watching it a second time. Some browncoats on the internet recently started an effort to collect donations before deciding that maybe that isn't the most effective way to bring back Firefly. Serenity gets 5 out of 5.
On Saturday night we watched The Bourne Supremacy (PG-13) with the Lashlees. It was a decent action film. It had sort of been too long since we had seen the first Bourne movie, so we had a little trouble remembering if there was anything that we should have recollect from that film that would have helped us follow this one. I give it an 3 out of 5.
Today we had movie night. The boys watched The Land Before Time: The Invasion of the Tinysauruses. The adults watched I ♥ Huckabees. Reel.com lists Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Flirting with Disaster, Magnolia, Short Cuts, and Waking Life as "Close Movie Matches" for Huckabees. I liked all of those (especially Spotless Mind and Flirting with Disaster), but we did not enjoy Huckabees.
I give it 2 out of 5.
Anticipation is building for the Dec. 9 release of The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe film. I vaguely remember reading the whole series of books as a kid and also maybe watching a cartoon version that was kind of scary for whatever age I was. I'm thinking it might be this year's Christmas/New Year's movie. If I remember correctly, last year's was Meet the Fockers and before that was one of The Lord of the Rings. Lisa says she doesn't want to see Narnia; she wants to see walk the line. Maybe there'll be two Christmas/New Year's films this year. Any volunteers to babysit?
Last night Lisa and I went to see a concert by Sarah Groves (one of Lisa's favorites), Chris Rice, and Jars of Clay. Overall, Lisa said the experience was inspiring. All three performances were all quite enjoyable, though Lisa would have preferred a little more Sarah and a little less Chris. Elliot and Finn stayed home with Jordan the babysitter and watched Herbie Goes Bananas for movie night.
