I love summer for so many reasons, not the least of which is the great summer blockbusters that hit the theaters in full force! We don't get out much now that we have a child, but when we do, I love going to the movies. Yesterday I went to two in one day! It was my sister's birthday and she, my mom, and I went to see Mama Mia. Although I LOVE musicals as a genre for movies (and am overjoyed that it seems to be coming back in full force), I was a little apprehensive about this one. I shouldn't have been. I was so entertained. There were obvious drawbacks of course ( Pierce Brosnan should NEVER sing.. even in the shower, and Meryl Streep seemed a bit too old for her role), but on the whole, it was a cheesy good time that left me wanting to runaway to Greece for a week with my sisters or best girlfriends to just be silly.
That evening Jeremy and I went to see Dark Knight.. and LOVED it. Christian Bale is the BEST batman ever! Neither of us really like Maggie Gyllenhall, but what do you do?
Anyway, get out and go to the movies. So much fun on a hot summer day!
