Movie Monday 9/12

Is it early enough in the morning to still count as a Monday post?  Whew, yesterday was just non-stop running, and I was pretty badly crashed.  Feeling better this morning, though, thanks to a good night's sleep.

We enjoyed a couple of movies this weekend:
  • Ken and I watched The Lincoln Lawyer Saturday night - first time in a long time we've had a chance to watch a movie on our own!  We are both big fans of author Michael Connelly, so it's no surprise we enjoyed this movie based on his legal thriller.  Matthew McConaughey stars as a lawyer with a reputation for representing (and often freeing) low-life clients.  Then he lands a wealthy young man, played by Ryan Phillipe, accused of rape and assault and thinks he stands to make a lot of money in the case.  But things aren't as they seem, and he gets pulled further and further into a tangled mess.  Great suspense with lots of twists and turns.  Marisa Tomei stars as his ex-wife.
  • When I saw Johnny English, starring Rowan Atkinson, on the library shelf, I knew the kids would love it.  I was right - all the kids, including Ken!, laughed hysterically at this British slapstick comedy about a James Bond wannabe.  It's basically a British version of The Pink Panther and Inspector Clousseau.  Not exactly my kind of thing but good for some laughs!
Have you seen any good movies lately?


  1. Earlier this week I watched "Trust" (with Clive Owen) and "Hanna" (with Eric Bana). I enjoyed both of them.

    This morning I watched "Lucky Number Slevin." It is a *great* movie!

    Hope you are all in good health.

  2. No movies this week. Hubby and I have been working our way through Kings on Hulu. I've been watching Kitchen Confidential and Whites on Hulu both are kitchen comedies, one US and one UK, both good and both were canceled :-(. I've also been watching Enterprise.

  3. no movies recently, but there are a few I want to see....
