Movie Monday 6/6

Well, I am finally coming up for air after 10 days spent completely incapacitated.  Whew, this was a bad one.  As always with this particular type of crash, I ended up with a bad case of bronchitis.  I finally started to feel better this morning.  My oldest son, Jamie, says he is feeling a little better, too - he's been in bad shape for weeks now, probably a reaction to his Lyme/bartonella treatment.  So, we've had a rough time here.

My dad and his wife came to visit this weekend, but we were pretty dull!  Jamie and I were both stuck lying on the couch (we took turns), and we watched a lot of TV.  We did see a couple of movies to break the monotony:
  • Saturday night, we all watched The Green Hornet.  I expected a typical superhero movie, but this was more of a comedy (Craig told me I should have known that since Seth Rogen is the star).  It was very silly and actually pretty funny.  Since laughs were just what we needed, we all enjoyed it.
  • Craig went to the pool with a friend Sunday, and Jamie and I were still feeling awful, so we browsed through the On-Demand movie choices and watched The X-Files Movie with Jamie.  Ken and I have seen it (maybe twice) before - we were big X-Files fans - but Jamie has never seen the show or the movies.  We explained it was about two FBI agents investigating paranormal stuff, and his eyes lit up!  He liked it very much and is now looking forward to watching the old TV episodes this summer.
  • With school winding down, the boys don't have as much work to do in the evenings (well, Jamie just hasn't had the energy for much work), so went back to the On-Demand movie menu last night and ended up watching Get Shorty with the boys.  Ken and I saw it years ago, but we enjoyed watching it again with the boys.  Craig thought it was a bit too complicated (which it is!), but Jamie loved it.  John Travolta is just so good in that role.  We'll have to rent Pulp Fiction for Jamie, too.  
Well, we probably won't be watching any more movies for a while.  The boys have final exams this week, and I need to make up for those 10 days spent in bed and on the couch.  We have very little time now to get ready for our upcoming vacation.  Busy, busy!  Of course, I will have to be careful not to get too active too soon.

Have you seen any good movies lately?

  3. 10 days...thats a long crash. I'm glad that you are feeling some better. I hope you have a great vacation. I was dog sitting and watched Jumpin' Jack Flash. It is tooo funny with Whoopi Goldberg. The only problem is that it does have some foul language. Have a great week!!!!
