Okay first off, I just want to tell my readers who are friends on Facebook, if you want to know how my Mom and sisters trip to the Mid-West is going, go read the 2 newest Notes of mine there. Since I can't write it here, that is the only place I can.
My Dad and I went to see Our Family Wedding, with Carlos Mencia and Forest Whittaker. I am not going to say GO see this, as I gave it a 3 out of 10. With Carlos being the comedian he is, they so under-utilized that. They also showed the funniest parts IN the trailers, which is a stupid idea! They could have done SO much more with this movie, but they didn't. And that is such a shame. I think Carlos and Forest had the right chemistry, but the film just didn't give them enough to work with. I don't even think I will rent this. Yeah my Dad thinks I am being nice giving it a 3, he gave it a 2.
However last night I watched the dvd I bought, even though I have never seen the movie, but Yay, for once it was a good move, because I LOVED it! It is called Possession and stars Sarah Michelle Gellar and Lee Pace (all you Pushing Daisies fans take note!). It is NOT a horror movie, it is kind of a supernaturalish thriller. It is so good and a lot of fun. While they did not end the movie the way that would make me go "Ahhhh I LOVE this!!!!", it ends it in a hopeful way, where I was like, "wow, this was a really good movie. My Mom will love it too.". I am surprised it didn't go into theaters because it really was excellent and I enjoyed the twists a lot. And it was so well acted too. I also watched the alternate ending, which is like 34 minutes where they have a lot of the scenes you have seen already for the most part, but tweak it in a few major ways and the way THAT ended, I was less than thrilled. The ending they went with was definitely the right choice. She just makes a decision at the end, that I think is just...wrong. On so many levels. So the real movie is the way to go, if you really want to know the other ending and DO watch it, email me so we can discuss!! So if you see this at the video store, or on Netflix, rent it, it is a gem of a find!
Did the time change screw anyone else up? I forgot about it until the we hours of the morning so I was running around changing clocks and realized because of the time change I was going to be SO tired when my dad woke me up. He ended up saying we could alter our plans so I got an extra hour, but still needed to drink some 5 hour energy. With the time difference AND Max going psycho all morning and barking every time I fell asleep or ALMOST back to sleep, I was a wreck! And felt guilty for leaving the couch to sleep in my room because my Dad was still asleep and he needed the rest, so Max would be all alone. And he is so depressed and clingy since my Mom and the girls left. He stuck to my Dad like glue ALL day, and now he is plastered against my side. Poor baby!
