Pacific Heights

Pacific Heights

I love this movie. I literally jumped a little when we saw it in the store because some times these great; yet, little known movies are hard to find.

This movie is one of the main reasons I’ve always stuck to my guns about never owning rental properties. You never know who will be your Carter Hayes, and frankly I don’t need that.

I should have more whitty things to say, or at least a half assed rant, but sadly I don’t. Maybe after the next movie.

Three for one

So during our last $5.50 bin rummage Matt found a box set for the Scorpion King, The Mummy, and The Mummy Returns. Well it wasn’t actually in the $5.50 bin it was on the shelf next to it, but we still got a great deal for all three. Of course that means that I get to have the pleasure (or displeasure) of watching all three of these movies with Matt because we all know The Mummy isn’t played enough on TV, right.

Honestly I can handle The Mummy, its action packed with a little bit of history for background. The Scorpion King and the Mummy Returns not so much, at least The Rock is nice to look at.

We’ve added a lot to our collection, I need to update our movie catalog. Yes, I catalog and alphabetize our movies… books too.

We watched Twister last night. I love that movie no matter how un-factual it may be. Yes, I just made up the word un-factual… live with it. It’s my damn blog, I’ll do what I want.

There are some great one liners in Twister it’s a classic 90’s movie.
And did you know that it was the first movie to be released on to DVD? Remember that you might need if you’re ever on Jeopardy.

So with all that said, if you own Twister, pull it out and watch it again and if you don’t then check out ebay because I’ll be listing our old VHS version of it.

And as always I leave you with a little tid bit for today’s feature – it was hard to select just one, but here it is:

Must find new obsession

Just finished Harry flippin’ Potter and the Deathly Hallows.

Took me longer than expected.

Not as bad as I expected; not as good as I had hoped.

At least the series is complete.

Movie Marathons -

brought to you by the 5.50 bin

So you can imagine my total amazement when Matt and I went to Wal-Mart this weekend to buy his sister a baby gift and we discovered that at long last they had updated their five-fifty bins. Needless to say we kind of went crazy. The best part is we increased our DVD collection by at least ten more movies all for less than one month’s cable bill. Some of our finds were newer releases and as always there was a nice selection of 80-90’s. You’ll be reading about all of them soon since we have enacted a movie marathon night every night until we watch them all.

Man I love the five-fifty bin.

Just finished watching Serendipity on TBS. Sometimes I hate watching movies on TV because so much ends up getting left out. Surprisingly I rather enjoyed this movie despite the romantic debate I engaged Matt in during it. Obviously the movie is something that is suppose to be an unrealistic romantic comedy, but sometimes I’m bothered by how easily Hollywood will take a solid relationship and throw it out the window for the stranger on the street. What if these two get together and find out the other one is absolutely crazy? And the movie always ends with the two main characters ending up happily ever after, but we never really learn what happened to the old significant others. The ones that were throw to the road at the first signs of some new adventure. When is someone going to make a movie about the other side?

I know sometimes I just need to let go and enjoy the movie, but commercials are just such wonderful little breaks that allow these types of thoughts to form in my mind.

With all that said I would like to put it in writing that I did enjoy the movie and should I ever see it in the discount bin, we’d pick it up.

You know the Greeks didn't write obituaries. They only asked one question after a man died: "Did he have passion?"

One for the Money ~ Janet Evanovich

I’m sorry about my recent absents. As some of you know I’ve been working about fifty hours a week and planning my upcoming wedding, so needless to say I’ve been slightly busy. And while I’ve been a fairly calm bride for the last ten months I have officially started to freak out.

I don’t know when or how but last weekend I sat down and read One for the Money by Janet Evanovich. I wasn’t expecting to like it as I did. Everyone told me it was funny, but I was a little hesitant. It isn’t the type of book I typically like to read. Yet, I really enjoyed it, so much in fact that I read it in one sitting. Something I haven’t done with a book in quite some time.

As I expected it wasn’t the typical story I like to read, but it was hilarious, the one liners kept me wanting to turn the page. I don’t know if I’ll pick up any of the other books in the series, but this one was a good read.
