The rest of the weekend was nice. We enjoyed having my Dad and his wife here, but by Sunday evening I was totally wiped out! I think the miniature golf yesterday and also making dinner were just too much time on my feet. They left this morning and so did Ken for a business trip to Texas. I have a quiet, easy, restful week planned.
So, we didn't have much time for movies last week:
- With my Dad and his wife and the kids, we watched Beneath the Planet of the Apes, sequel to the 70's classic. I'm not sure I ever saw the sequel when it first came out. Of course, nothing can compare with the first one, but this was pretty good. Everyone seemed to enjoy it, and Jamie wants to see the rest of the sequels (there were quite a few!) We also haven't seen the more recent remake.
- That was the only movie we watched, but Ken and I watched some more Mad Men episodes from Season 1 on DVD and also started in on the first season of The Mentalist. This is one of my mom's favorite TV shows, and I can see why! We had watched an episode or two before but didn't know any of the backstory or who the characters were. The pilot was excellent, and now we understand it better. Its a crime show but with a great sense of humor. I'm sure we'll watch more. Thanks, Mom!
Have you seen any good movies lately?
