Saw Ava...Air bender and Predators this week.  Both were boring, I thought Air bender was the better of the 2.

Yep - I saw it yesterday in IMAX - it was freakin' incredible.

Best movie of the summer in my opinion.

Do  you have any recommendations for the care and maintenance of a manjina?

Last weekend, our kids were off visiting their grandparents so my wife and I got a chance to go to the movies - a lot!  Its a past-time that we've really missed as our kids have been younger and generally not all that interested in movies.

We saw - Inception on Friday night and then Grown-ups and Salt as a double feature on Saturday afternoon.  I really enjoyed all three movies with Inception being my clear favorite.  I liked the original story for Inception and while it was complicated, it was still easy enough to follow.  I thought the ending was fabulous.   Grown-ups was nothing more than a "renter".  I liked it, laughed out loud but it wasn't side splitting funny.  If you like any of the lead actors then it was probably in your wheelhouse.  Salt was a good popcorn flick.  Plenty of action and an okay story.  A couple of twists along the way. 

Kids are off to the other grandparents in a couple weeks so we might get a chance to catch another flick in August.

Kids, same age, same clothes.

Crazy chases by super spies.

I think it's pretty clear.

Peacekeeper, when it absolutely, positively has to be nuked in 30 minutes or less.  Or the next nuke's free!

I saw Dinner for Schmucks a few weeks ago. Pretty bad. The actors tried their best, but the script was just awful. Like 25% of the laughs you would expect from that group.

We caught this today, and I loved it.  It looks like it is going to have a pretty poor weekend at the box office, and that's really too bad.  I thought it was really funny, and entertaining.  I could see it maybe not appealing to an older crowd, but for people our age and younger, I thought it was very good.
