Movie Monday 10/17

Well, we did manage to have a nice, relaxing weekend.  Jamie is still crashed from over-doing on Saturday (playing soccer, watching a HS football game, and going to his dance), but I do think this is a simple case of over-exertion and am hoping he will recover soon.

We didn't watch many movies last week - mostly just TV shows - but Jamie and I watched one on Friday night:
  • We watched X-Men Origins - Wolverine which Jamie had seen before.  He really wanted to see it again - I wasn't too excited about it but gave it a try.  I knew nothing at all about the X-Men before this movie, but apparently, it is the story of how Wolverine got his start as a superhero.  I have to admit, it was a pretty good movie - lots of action, of course.  And I admit, I am now a bit curious about the other X-Men...
How about you - have you seen any good movies lately?

  1. I've seen all the Xmen movies. My hands down favs are the first one, X-Men, and the one that just came out, X-Men First Class. Origins isn't bad but I prefer the other two.

    We dropped Netflix so I haven't been watching any movies. I've been watching Star Trek Enterprise on Amazon Prime along with Arrested Development. I had forgotten how funny that series was. I'm forever bummed that it got canceled.

  2. Thanks for the recommendations! Jamie said he wants to see more X-Men movies (he saw X-Men First Class and loved it).

    I've never seen Arrested Development - will have to give that a try next time we're between seasons on TV!

  3. We did watch a movie~ Hearafter and it was really slow, and kind of dark and gloomy but with a happier ending~ no plans to watch X-men..too much action for these Lymies!

  4. We watched Hereafter a few weeks ago, and I really liked it, Renee. Ken thought it was a bit slow, but I liked how the three stories came together...and I agree it was a hopeful ending.
