We watched the show. I had been skeptical, wondering if sci-fi was really what we were all hankering for that night, but I have to admit, I got totally sucked in, and remembered why I had enjoyed the movie when Eric first introduced it to me, back when we were starry-eyed lovebirds, and not necessarily discerning movie watchers.
A few days later, my mom and dad again dropped by en route, this time on their way back home from Montana. We again had a nice evening and afternoon, I tried a new recipe, which I didn't love, but everyone else seemed to like pretty well (or maybe they were all being kind). After we put Heather to bed, we settled down for another movie on DVD. This time I did the mulling of options and personalities, and after learning that my parents hadn't yet seen We Are Marshall, I determined that it was right up their alley.
We all enjoyed it. Love that movie. My dad (who generally starts dropping off around 9:00) even stayed awake until after 10:30 to get to the end. Success!!
Then, a few days after that, Heather and I were looking for a movie to watch for our movie night. Growing tired of Dora the Explorer and Strawberry Shortcake, I managed to persuade Heather to try something new, viz, the stellar unmatched-ness of Sense and Sensibility. We managed to get through about forty-five minutes, and then it was bedtime for Heather, and I figured that would be the end of that.
So, you can imaging my surprise and glee when, the next morning I came home from my morning workout to this sight:
She loves the movie! I love that she loves the movie! Yippee!
|"Mom--that's Willerby. He's the bad guy, right? Even though he fixed her leg, he's still the bad guy, right?"|
Right on Heather. You've got it all figured out.
So, what about you? Got any stellar movie recommendations for us? New Ones? Oldies but goodies?
