Not much time for movies last week, and the kids were still totally engrossed with the TV series on DVD they've been watching most of the summer - Bones, The Office, Taxi, and their most recent obsession, The Big Bang Theory. I did treat myself to one movie:
- After my exhausted kids went to bed early on Saturday night, I watched Remember Me starring Robert Pattison and adorable Emile de Ravin. Annie over at It's Time to Get Over How Fragile You Are recommended it, but she also warned me it was really sad. She was right on both counts! I loved this movie; it's an in-depth character study of two people trying to recover from tragic losses in their lives who find each other. Despite its sad moments, it's really a movie about the healing power of love and family. Thanks for the tip, Annie!
- While away last week, my husband watched a couple more discs from the series The Pacific. He watched Band of Brothers on previous trips and has really enjoyed both series set during World War II and produced by Tom Hanks.
