Movie Monday 9/20

Still really, really sick, so I'll keep this short.  I spent too much time on the laptop earlier and paid for it...but I miss you guys!

Ken was away most of last week and I was too sick to stay up late enough for movies this weekend, but we saw a few oldies with the kids:
  • Jamie had a very busy social schedule this weekend, so we watched the first two Back to the Future movies with Craig.  We'd seen them before, but they were on TV, and he wanted to see them again.  The first, of course, is a classic.  The second is OK but the future scenes are a bit hokey.  I think he may have watched the third one the next morning.
  • On Sunday morning all of us were in our usual Sunday state of exhaustion, and we ended up watching School of Rock on TV.  We've probably seen it a dozen times (Craig maybe a hundred times!), but it's such a good movie!  A favorite at our house.
  • Sunday evening we watched Kindergarten Cop with the kids.  They've been wanting to see an Arnold Schwarzenegger movie from before he became the Governator, so I got this 80's movie from the library.  They loved it (and we enjoyed it, too).
Seen any good movies lately?


  1. All three oldies but goodies. Hugs and healz from across the US! Hope you're feeling better soon.

  2. Joel and I watched two movies this past weekend..Friday we watched Letters To Juliet which we liked and last night we watched Crazy Heart. Crazy Heart was so depressing and yet it was done so well with Jeff Bridges doing such an excellent job that we both found it one of our favorites in the there is always hope catagory...:)

    Those sound fun. It's good to have light-hearted movies around when you're more 'under the weather' than the usual 'under the weather'.

    We saw a spoof western called "Gunless", made in Canada. Pretty campy and funny in most spots. A bit of violence but sort of comedy violence. A dog gets shot and we both really thought they shouldn't have included that, since the overall tone is lighter. Why do they do that? sheesh... anyway, worth seeing for the laughs.

    Take Care!


  4. School of Rock is such a cool movie!

    I like it because it works on so many levels; there's heaps in there for adults to enjoy as well as kids.

    I'm re-watching season 3 of Mad Men at the moment on DVD. I can't believe that this show is even better the second time around!

    Hope you feel better soon :)
