Movies We Watch

Movie: Harry Potter and The Half Blood Prince.

John loved it, I give a B+ only because they did not show the fight between the Death Eaters and the D.A's (Dumbledore's Army) at the end of the movie when Dumbledore got killed by Severus Snape and the other thing they rushed on was the love attraction between Ginny Wesley and Harry Potter. One moment Ginny was smooching her boyfriend and the next she was kissing on Harry. Since we read the book, we know how the whole love plot between these two worked out and you really get to feel the intensity to it, but in the movie it just feels like they threw it out and they ran out of time to build the love between them so overall that didn't work out very well. Again, the book is awesome but the movie did fall short in some parts. Our favorite movie based on the Harry Potter books is the Goblet of Fire, they nail it!

Now, we hear that the last book, The Deathly Hollows will be made into to parts, in other words, two movies. Can't wait for that because it was a great book.

Movie: Terminator Salvation

We both give this movie an A+ or 5 out of 5 stars! With only one thing that we just didn't get and perhaps because we have not seen all the other Terminator movies that have come out before this one and that was that John Connor's dad comes back as a teenager and now Connor has to save his father before the Terminators get to his dad. We scratched our heads on that one. Arnold does a cameo on this movie; he shows up like he did in the first movie, it was a 3G of himself, very believable indeed. Oh! and you also get to hear the famous quote "Come with me if you want to live." John and I cracked up on this one. Definately an action movie! Rent it if you want to live! -Sandra.
