A week of movies

So, we’ve seen a few movies since we’ve been back. I thought you’d like to hear about them!

Gigantic: A Tale of Two Johns: It is a docu/movie about that fabulous band They Might Be Giants. Through the film you are walked down the same road that John and John took…from performing in small clubs in New York’s East Villiage to signing with a ‘big’ agency to filming music videos. We found it to be very entertaining. I suppose you’d have to like TMBG to begin with to really get into it, though.

Italian for Beginners : a flick recommended by my coworker, Jane. She thought I’d enjoy it and she didn’t disappoint. An extreemly low budget (looking) film, “Italian for Beginners” was a delight to watch. It told the stories of 6 or 7 Danes and eventually wove those stories into one: they all take a beginners Italian class. It is sad and sweet and funny…and in Danish. Love those subtitles! It was a fun, quirky movie.

Wallace and Gromit: Curse of the Ware-Rabbit: our afternoon outing today. Knowing that we loved the original W and G series we were looking forward to seeing this full length movie. It was a ton of fun. Lots of puns and jokes and a surprise vocal apperance of one of my favorite actors, Ralph Finnes. We loved it, and so did all the kids at the 12pm matinee showing we were at 🙂

That’s all for now. We’re waiting on Bride and Prejudice to come via Netflix. We’ve seen it already, but are looking forward to singing “No life….without Wife” again!

ps. It’s Snowing like crazy! We’ve got at least an inch out there. Never fear, Peter is taking pictures 🙂

    Snow already? Wow!!!! It was near 70 today! I LOVED Bride and Prejudice. This weekend, I watched High Fidelity from Netflix. If you haven’t seen it, I recommend it. John Cusack starred and directed. He’s so cute!
