I totally forgot today was Thursday! Forgive me, it was a super busy day.
Movie- Mr. Magoriums Wonder Emporium. Oh my gosh, this was a super wonderful movie. I so loved it! Dustin Hoffman was brilliant, the story was touching and magical. I will for sure be buying this one! Ten thumbs up!
Movie- The Golden Compass- Ok, I know I gave this a Thumbs Down! a few months ago. However I did decide to watch it, based on my friend's recommendation. I think separate from the fact of who wrote the story, and the books, this movie in it's self was a really great movie. I loved the special effects, the little girl in it was a great actress (I have issues with child actors) and I liked the story, it was very creative. I rented the movie, but probably will not buy it because I don't want my kids to want to get into the books, so it's probably a movie we will forget about.
Movie- The Bee Movie- This movie bored my kids, it wasn't a great story, it was just ok. I'm not a tree hugger, so maybe that's one reason I didn't find it so fascinating.
On a side note: during my busy day today I had to travel downtown to Minneapolis, and exit right before the spot where the I-35W bridge had collapsed into the Mississippi river. On my way back onto the freeway I could see the construction very clearly. It was the first time I've been down there since the collapse. I'd been on it just days before it fell last summer, I was on it with Gina, even just days before! It was very sad to see it and remember what happened.
When I got on the freeway, it was weird entering a freeway, trying to build up speed and merge, and then remember there's nobody there to merge with because the road is gone from behind you.
