Ya, ya I know. I am a day late. And $10 short. But I spent that $10 on two good movies this week that I wanted to share with y’all.
For our 16 year dating anniversary, my husband and I went to see “Warm Bodies”.
Originally, I wasn’t interested in seeing it because I thought it was just zombie romance. But then I found out it was also a COMEDY! The studio bills it as a zomb-rom-com. There was enough blood and guts to keep my husband happy and enough romance and humor to keep me happy. I would describe it as most like a coming-of-age/first-love movie, like was common in the 80’s. (It also has an awesome 80’s soundtrack.) With a few brains thrown in to remember that they are zombies.
My husband was fascinated by the new twist on zombies. Of course, he also will watch Twilight with me, so I have a keeper. We both agreed we would want to own “Warm Bodies” when it comes out on DVD.
I also got the chance to go see “Safe Haven” with my Sister-in-Law. It was better than I expected. I am always leary of Nicholas Sparks movies. I still haven’t forgiven him for killing off Mandy Moore in “A Walk To Remember”.
This movie had a twist ending also, but it didn’t p*ss me off like “A Walk To Remember”. When the twist came, I realized my mom had read the book and told me that the twist ending had p*ssed her off. But as I didn’t realize she had already told me about it, it was a surprise to me, making the movie a little more interesting than if it had just been about the abused girl running from an abusive husband.
And now I think I need to dye my hair blond and cut it off into layers. Opinions?
