Movies We Watch

Movie: Tron: Legacy

FLYNN LIVES! John and I tried to recalled the first Tron back in the 80's and we both agreed that we have no clue what it was about. All I remember was that it went over my head and I went to sleep; the same happened to John.

Starring Jeff Bridges playing his younger self and older self, this movie is about Kevin Flynn (Jeff Bridges) vanishing from earth and everyone is looking for him including his son Sam Flynn, 25 years later, Sam finds his father in a "Matrix" kind of world where everyone is a program. We loved the motorcycle game! Now, Sam wants out of that world but it may cost him his life and/or his father's life to go back. Amazing movie! We're watching the first Tron, hopefully this time, it won't go over our heads or fall asleep!

We give it: 4 1/2 stars!

Movie: The Fighter

It was about time someone came up with a great boxing movie, this one it is! Not a Rocky IV movie, but it sure had us guessing whether he was going to win a title or not! I even called my brother to see if he had heard of Mickey Ward! Great movie, about family conflicts and how family can either lift you up or drag you down with them.

We give it: 4 1/2 stars!

Movie: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

Since John and I have read all of the Harry Potter books, there is really no surprises by watching the movie, all we look for is how close the movie is to the book and we were not disappointed. I read a lot of negative reviews on this movie that it wasn't exciting, but clearly, if anyone of these reviewers have read the book, they will know that the exciting part comes after Harry, Hermione and Ron leave the fortress to search for the remaining horcruxes.  They did a good job on bringing Hermione and Harry alone in the fortress and how they were able to sneak in and out of the ministry. We can't wait for the final movie!

We give it: 4 stars
