Movies We Watch

1. Midnight in Paris - Gil, a writer and his fiancee travel to Paris (with her parents) He falls in love and immediately suggests they should move to the city of love, but Inez (his fiancee) will never dream of leaving her Hollywood home for some "old city" such as Paris. Their differences in lifestyle and friends comes out while Gil decides to walk the streets of Paris at night, alone, while discovering a different world and the woman of his dreams. John and I loved this movie because of its surprising turns and events that take place while rooting for Gil to leave his fiancee.

We give it 3 1/2 Stars.

2. The Avengers - We watched this movie on opening weekend and it served us as a reminder not to EVER  go see a movie on opening weekend unless we are ready to wait in line forever only to get moved to a smaller theater house, which has very limited seats, instead of the big house screen. It was close to midnight before we started watching this movie, which had a lot to do with my enjoying the movie because I became very sleepy. It's a great movie, lots of superheroes bunched together throwing punches, jabs and jokes left and right. Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) very hot. The story line so-so, but who cares, when you have Robert Downing, Jr., Jeremy Renner and Chris Evans all in one screen you don't need much of a story line.

4 Stars.

3. Tower Heist - A financer is arrested for fraud including robbing employee's from their pension; Ben Stiller and his buddies decide to get revenge and rob the financer from one of his secret safe's in his highrise penthouse, only problem nothing goes as planned and the robber's (Ben Stiller, Eddie Murphy and Matthew Broderick) decide to steal something much more valuable. These three together made us laugh especially Matthew Broderick, his persona doesn't change from his Buller's Day Off movie. He's hilarious without trying! Eddie Murphy, amazing!

We give it 4 Stars!
