movie blitzn

That may have been the fastest 4 days in history...I did everything I intended and was amazing that Direct TV chose to give us Starz Movie Channels free preview over the holiday....that was cool so my evenings were spent in Movie Mode....Here is what I saw and my rating outta 5 starz*****:
  1. Apollo 13     ***
  2. Frozen          **
  3. True Grit       *****
  4. McClintock   ****1/2
  5. Stepfather     ***
  6. Deep Core    ***
  7. Final Destination 2  ***
  8. Apocalypto    *
  • I REALLY hope the Mayans were not that brutal...omg Mel Gibson's depiction of the ancient civilization was so inhumane I really cant believe any society was that brutal..of course I have no way of knowing...but the one star I did give was for the performance of Rudy Youngblood--it was all in subtitles and that was annoying although I did appreciate the authentic dialog...
 Another entertainment note....tonight is the end of the Walking Dead series..if  you've been following it...I gotta say the stopping at the farm has sort of broken the momentum for me of the "adventure" aspect of the Ive had time to catch up and had a MEDIA blizt..of sorts.
AND in between times I was working on my Family Tree on boy that takes up a lot of time....and I get cross eyed after a while staring at this screen..

My little Thanksgiving brunch was great I had veggie sandwiches and skin on roasted potatoes, sweet peppers, and BIG button mushrooms.  We had a couple varieties of pie to dissect and that was yum...son came over in the evening and watched a movie with me and we had more pie..;o)) sister and her husband left for the coast  in their new RV its maiden voyage and they were able to find all the issues right which is usually the only way to go, I was thinking it may have been a good idea for them to rent one for a week before purchasing one..But they decided to jump right into the deep end of the pool...this vehicle will be used in their business as a traveling home away from home. Darn I forgot to photograph it but very similar to this one off Camping World sales page..this is exciting cause my B.I.L. likes to get rid of old stuff quickly and I have many of his hand me WELL I can dream right!!



  1. And I didn't even know they were having the free weekend. Oh, well.

  2. Your non-turkey dinner sounds delish! Glad you gave True Grit five stars, loved that movie.

  3. Camping in style! Don't you wish ... but hey, it just may come true.

    Haven't watched a movie in AGES.

  4. Yay for free movies! On another blog I read about checking out series and movies from the Library -- a good reminder that the Library has these besides books! (We used to have DISH TV when we traveled with our big RV but gave it up to save $$.)

  5. Oh yeah, and yay for your RVing sister and bil -- looks like a great rig.
