Nuthin' Doin'

Not much cookin going on. I HAVE been watching a lot of movies lately. It's the whole no cable thing, I guess. That and I like watching movies. Most of them have been out a while, but I'm just getting around to watching them OR I just felt like watching them again. A few I actually watched at the theater. No rhyme nor reason to the order, just listing them as I remember them and as I tend to ramble on and on and on, I'll keep my two cents short...four words or less.

Music and Lyrics -- Opening video worth admission
Meet the Robinsons -- animated goodness, GO WATCH
Idiocrasy -- Hysterically funny but awful
Happy Feet --- Mildly annoying; don't bother
Chicken Little -- goofy, silly, I laughed
Premonition -- Confusing AND slightly boring
Capote -- Rent this movie
Wild Hogs -- Wildly Entertaining and funny
Casino Royale -- FIRST enjoyable Bond flick. WOW! ( I know, five words, but the WOW is necessary)
Daltry Calhoun -- Unexpectedly GOOD Knoxville movie
The DaVinci Code -- Overrated with creepy monks
Disney's The Three Musketeer's -- always entertaining
The Incredibles -- ditto above
Rumor Has it -- Enjoyable despite Kevin Kostner
Fun with Dick and Jane -- Like'd, didn't love it.
Little Miss Sunshine -- Hysterical Ending

The movie that I was most surprised by was Daltry Calhoun. I'm not a fan of Johnny Knoxville. Don't know that I've watched any of his (what four?) movies. This was sitting in the cheapy aisle at Movie Gallery. I'd never heard of it, but it looked like it might be something different, so I grabbed it. It was, like I said, unexpectedly good. Worth the 3 bucks to rent for sure! I know I am forgetting a couple more movies. There was something really really great that I rented around the time that I watched Little Miss Sunshine, but for the life of me, I can't remember what it was. I remember Shea and I talking about it. It was one of those movies I knew I wouldn't like, but I ended up loving it. It'll come to me later I guess.

I'm cooking "ISLAND CHICKEN" later tonight. Tune in again for the rundown.
