Movies In Review

Movies In Review
Grab the popcorn and chips y'all, it's movie night.

"The Last Song" starring Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth

I finally got to see the movie after reading the book. I don't know if there is a specific reason why the movie directors or producers, who ever is over the script, have to chance the location from what the book says. Why? Nicholas Sparks, author of "The Last Song" has the main scene located in the Carolinas, but in the movie it's Georgia. Why? I understand why the movie directors/producers leave out a lot of information from the book because they are pressed for time, but DON'T change the script. PLEASE! It's an automatic turn off for me when you start REALLY messing with the script. If they had not messed with the script, this movie would have been absolutely awesome. Don't get me wrong, it was still a good movie and I enjoyed it despite the changes. Bottomline, I still cried like a baby towards the end. It's a sweet romantic drama.

"A Death At A Funeral" starring Martin Lawrence, Chris Rock, Tracy Morgan, and Danny Glover

Doug brought this movie home. I'm not a Chris Rock fan (at all) because of his potty mouth and this is my opinion, I feel he is a racist against caucasians. Honey, I haven't laughed that hard since the movie "Old Dogs" starring Robin Williams. I probably laughed harder. Oh . . . my . . . word! I thought I was going to PIMP watching this movie. This is an adult "You've Got To See This" movie. Of course, it is strickly an adult movie.

Post Follow Up
Thank you so much ladies for all your imput on Snacks that Begin with the Letter "Ff" suggestions for Katie.  I received so many great ideas and it's going to be a very hard decision because of all the choices. Mrs. M has informed us parents that she is running a little behind on preparing for the literacy project, which includes the "Letter Expert" part.  When the time comes, I will have to go back over the list again and make a final decision. Of course, I'll have to get approval from the diva. Thanks again and I'll let you know as soon as possible on what we've decided.

Ugh I am so behind on movies. I will have to check these out. My hubby would probably like #2. I am not a Chris Rock fan either but, since you said it was good we may have to watch it. :)
