Over the holidays we went to two movies and had a great time. Both of these I want to see again.
The first was Sherlock Holmes with Robert Downey Jr. and Jud Law. Although the theater had the sound up way too loud, the movie was a lot of fun. I want to see it again. I'll probably buy it when it comes out on DVD. We were even able to get 9 of us to the movie in time enough to sit together and with my family that's no mean feat.
The second was Avatar in 3D in an Imax theater. IMG. Amazing experience. We went to the Bay Area to visit a friend and since we were going to be there any way we thought we try to see this movie in Imax. The only show we could get into was the 9:45 one on Saturday morning. This worked out great because my friend got sick on Friday so we stayed with her Friday night, got up early went to the movie, then after headed home.
That's two first run movies in a theater. That more than I went to last year. I don't usually like going to the movies in a theater because I like being at home, where there's popcorn I don't have to spend an arm and a leg for, and there's beer, and a bathroom I don't have to wait in line for.
We also saw a bunch of new stuff on DVD. Angles and Demons, Up and Inglourious Bastards. I liked Angles and Demons and want to see it again. Up was cute. I didn't like Inglourious Bastards at all.
There are some new ones coming up I'm looking forward to. Iron Man 2 and Alice in Wonderland, 2010 just to mention a few.
