Zilla and I have had a gift certificate for a movie and dinner for months now. We just can't seem to get a date night scheduled. Well, that's not quite true. We've had date nights in there but we usually bail on the movie. For one thing, it's hard for us to agree on one that we'd both like to see. For another, we're both home bodies and most often just decide that staying in is a better option. Friday night we even had a babysitter lined up...I ended up working instead. Don't get me wrong, we took advantage of the child free hours. However, what we didn't do is go to a movie. And this gift certificate expires at the end of the month.
We've both agreed - and have babysitters already lined up - that we're going to see Sherlock Holmes the day after Christmas. I have to admit, it looks pretty damn good.
There are actually lots of good movies coming out this month...just not ones Zilla and I would both go see. I'm interested in: The Lovely Bones, The Princess and the Frog, The Young Victoria, Did You Hear About the Morgans, Nine (although if it turns out to be anything close to Moulin Rouge I will walk out of the theater), and Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel (the girls loved the first one!). I still want to see Blind Side, The Men Who Stare at Goats and possibly the Brothers although that one looks pretty intense.
Are there any movies you're looking forward to seeing? Any that you'd recommend?
