Bam like. Hole E Mole E, another weekend of blistering heat and an A/C that could barely keep up, ya know?. Rhetorical question...meaning not really a question more like a statement in question form...ie needs no answer...but I suppose you may if you want to. Answer that is.
So we left the confines of our semi cool, yet comfy domicile. Are you impressed with use of fancy vocabulary words? Haha rhetorical (insert grin) Where did we go? What did we do? Just hold your horses and I'll tell ya. We went to the theater. Say it all fancy and uppity like. Thee-Ate-Tah, yeah like that...only it was the movie theater.
I know this has been out for a little while but hey it's worth giving y'all, my dear internets who have not forgotten me, my review of... Cowboys and Aliens. See there was something more to that
dance dream I told
y'all about after all.
Anywho we enjoyed it. It had good graphics! The story line was a new (for moi) spin on Visitors from Out of Space not the kind of alien that crosses the border without the proper paperwork. You know that is funny...now laugh -- dagnabit! This movie gets a five thumbs up from us. Five because there was a couple of those jiggly camera shaky "what ta heck" kind of scenes in it.
Now onto yet another day of pure Texas hotness and I don't mean where my Beloved just admires me. Nope. We went to the movies again! I know! TWO DAYS IN A ROW! We saw Rise of the Planet of the Apes. And it too had good graphics, who would have thunk it? ReeeToreAhKul. Interesting story line about the, DNA, why to play with it and OMG...really the end of humanity as we know it! And yes we enjoyed this one too. Although we think they (writers/directors/actors) could have played up a bit more of an emotional attachment to Cesar. And although this is yet another remake of the 1968 Ape Planet series, we once again give a five thumbs up.
Oh, the unusual number of thumbs. Okay I'll explain that for those of y'all who asked, for those that didn't... don't feel obligated to read the explanation. My little family has dwindled down over time from seven children to only one left at home and that gives us three sets of thumbs. A rating of six up would be really good cause that would mean we all LOVED the movie and it needed no improvements from our standpoint. Where as one thumb or a negative thumb would mean you are crazy insane to spend your very hard earned money on seeing it at all in any form.
Sooo bottom line is both of these movies were worth the matinee price we paid to see 'em
