My thoughts on a few movies

I've watched a few movies on tv or in the theater in the last month or so. And since my brain is mush and I can't think of anything to blog about I thought I'd give my thoughts on them...

Hoosiers: Hoosiers rocks. That's all there is to it. It's one of those movies I can watch over and over and feel all pumped up and excited every single time.  A bit of trivia for you... Did you know Gene Hackman was the original actor picked to play Mike Brady on "The Brady Bunch"? But since he was an "unknown" actor at the time, they decided to go with Robert Reed...

American History X:  I had never seen this movie before and I'm glad I saw it edited for TV because I'm pretty positive the language, violence, etc... warped me enough even edited.  I was watching this movie and you know what? I actually think it was really good. Depressing, but REALLY good.  Edward Norton is a rad actor. And I loved when Sweeney asked "Has anything you've done made your life better?" What a great question to ask ourselves each day. It's a movie that really makes you think. I don't understand that kind of hate. And I don't understand prison. Eew.



Dear John:  It was ok. Channing Tatum is cute. And he's a surfer with board shorts hangin' off his cute butt, but other than that... It wasn't all that. I mean, it was ok. It was fine to watch. I just kinda felt left hangin' at the end. And believe it or not- I DID NOT CRY. Weird...


I guess that's about it.  It's spring break and I am so stoked to go to the lake house tomorrow with the kids and Seiuli. I love knowing I don't have to "share" Tristan, Alec and Isabel with anyone for almost 2 weeks!!!!!! I love my family!!!!!
