So Christmas Vacation and Snow Days necessitate movie watching. Here's what I've seen over the past month and my personal (and definately professional) critique. On a five star two thumb scale...

Talledega Nights -

4 stars, two thumbs up. Love, no, lurve the Prayer scene. "Dear eight point two pound baby Jesus..." Love it.

The Devil Wears Prada -

3 stars, two thumbs up. Meryl (who i always confuse with Glen) was fabulous. Of course. Love her.

Night at the Museum -

3 stars, two thumbs up. Ben is fabulous and Dick Van is of course one of my favorites. Not to mention Owen Wilson "That makes me sad." A good flic.

The Constant Gardner -

five stars. two thumbs up. Amazing movie about Africa, conspiracy and love. Rent it.

Pirates of the Carribean II -

3 stars, two thumbs up. I love Johnny Depp and my friends and I argued over whether it would be fun to be married to him. I vote yes... but I was also one of only two single people in the room. Long but good. Waiting for the third one!

The Matador -

2 stars, two thumbs down. lame boy-bonding movie that i heard was rad but just plain wasn't. ew.

The Holiday -

three stars, two thumbs up. long but good. plus Jude Law is, well, Jude Law.

Nacho Libre -

three stars, two thumbs up. what can i say, jack black is jack black. always go in with no expectations, always come out happy. "sometimes, adults just like to wear tights."

Raising Arizona -

three stars, two thumbs up. an oldie but a goodie - and i'd never seen it. That was quickly remedied and i soon realized that Hi's hilarious.

i just realized that as i was re-reading it. i'm always confusing famous people. i hate that. i see them in my head being fabulous and i give them the name of another fantastic person i love. sigh. i make a horrible fan.

Yes Grandma, you would like Night at the Museum, The Devil Wears Prada, The Constant Gardner, Pirates of the Carribean 2 and maybe The Holiday. Love you!

I can't believe you didn't like The Matador.
