The movies I have seen....

time for some popcorns...

Since I'm not seeing DVC (!), that doesn't mean I haven't been haunting the loca theater...

-- Mission: Impossible III : OK, I'll admit I don't really have a strong memory of the last two (probably b/c I was on dates when I saw them...heh heh) but this one I thought was pretty good. Not a lot of plot, other than stop the bad guy, save the world, on a crazy romp that takes us to Berlin, the Vatican (see I can tie this all in!), and Beijing. Tom Cruise plays Ethan Hunt who is engaged (and eventually marries in the film) a nice nurse who thinks he works for the Va DOT. Yeah, right. Keri Russell, Ving Rhames, Joanthan Rhys-Jones and Phillip Seymour Hoffman also co-star, with hoffman being a fantastic villian. Good movie if you just want to follow a loose plot and watch things blow up; it's like one long Alias episode, which makes sense since J.J. Abrahms, the creator of the show, is the movie's director.

-- X-Men: The Last Stand : But is it really? Just as good as the other two, with a few too many characters and waay overbearing music. But other than that, a good movie w/ a high body count (but mostly vaporizations, so don't freak). Hugh Jackman, Halle Berry, Patrick Stewart (yay!), Anna Paquin and everyone's favorite mutant/wizard/etc. Ian McKellan are back to fight another day. The scenes on Alcatraz a pretty cool and the movie's very well-paced.

More to come as I see them: Cars (yay Pixar!), Superman Returns , The Devil Wears Prada and possibly The Lake House and Click .

I can't wait to see "The Devil Wears Prada." I love that book! And I adore Anne Hathaway.
