Lots of Movies

I haven’t posted for a while, so I’m going to break it up into 2 posts, one for movies, one for books. Also, I want to post more so as to enter some more to win the give-away!


Assassin in Love - Funny British movie about an assassin who has to go into hiding and pretends to be a baker in a small village; the villagers somehow find out that he’s an assassin and think that when they ask him to “bake a cake” for someone (wink, wink) that he’ll bump them off. It was on Netflix instant play for a while, but it’s gone now. I think I missed a little at the beginning, but what I did see was pretty hilarious.

Maverick - Nothing to say here.

The Man with One Red Shoe - kind of silly, kind of obnoxious Tom Hanks movie from the 80’s involving a bumbling CIA mix-up. I wouldn’t recommend it.

The Avengers - pretty fun action flick. Less about Iron Man than I thought it would be from the previews, which was fine by me. I liked seeing all the other superhero characters also.

Dark Shadows - What a weird movie. I knew it would be weird, but it was a little more than I expected. Also, I don’t understand what’s up with the vampire obsession. Oh well.

Brave - This was a fun movie, not my favorite, I thought I would like it more, and I was surprised at the story they ended up telling here. My resident expert on horses was impressed with the animation of the horse in it.

The Trouble with Angels - I watched this a while ago, and for some reason never got it up here. Not much to say, it’s an older movie with Haley Mills, I didn’t love it.

The Damned United - This is about Leeds United, the British football team, during the 70’s and mostly about the coach. It’s pretty fun and interesting the way it’s presented, but it’s very British, as in, it’s okay that they say the “f” word a bajillion times, so if that bothers you, don’t watch it. 


  1. I really like the Avengers! It's an entertaining movie.

  2. I watched the preview to the Man with One Red Shoe a couple of months ago and I couldn't bring myself to watch it. It looked a little too much for me.
