Movie Day

So Julianne and I decided to have a "movie" day today. She's been wanting to see"Nine."   While it was rated PG13 I think it was a bit too suggestive for someone her age.  There really was no nudity but it was pretty much all about sex.   Other than that,  I'm still not sure what I think of the movie.

It reminded me a bit of "Moulin Rouge."  Very artsy.  Not a lot of sympathy for the main character ~ basically a whiny, womanizing, writer/director who is having trouble coming up with a script for his current movie. A married man who sleeps or tries to sleep with every woman in the movie.   There were some fantastic women in the movie.  Nicole Kidman, Judi Dench, Fergie, Penelope Cruz, Sofia Loren and Kate Hudson.  His wife is played by Marion Cotillard who I've not heard of before but she was great in this movie.  The sound track is fantastic as are the costumes.   I guess it's just not my cup of tea, but really well done for what it was.

We had a good time having movie day though.  We microwaved some popcorn, got some twizzlers (red vines which are NOT the same and don't taste very good at all) & chocolate and soda, of course.  DSCN1350   Excuse the mess on the couch ~ I was going through a bunch of fabric scraps for my next project!

We did also rent "Sherlock Holmes" which we watched tonight with Richard and while I thought it was going to be good ~ it was FANTASTIC.   Really, really enjoyable!

It sounds (and looks!) like you had a great time --- Nine doesn't sound like my type of movie, but I love love LOVED Sherlock Holmes - it's on my Must Buy list!!

Ah, I was wondering about this movie. I didn't like Moulin Rouge at all so I was hesitant on this one. Will check it out though.

Movie days are great, especially with our children! Laid back and full of love. Thanks for your visit recently.

Note to self: Rent Sherlock Holmes, not Nine. (Thanks for the tip! :) )
