Two Reviews & Upcoming Movies!

One of my favorite things to do is go to the movie theater! Where I live, we have one big movie theater and one local, smaller movie theater downtown called The Lyric. The Lyric shows movies a couple of weeks after they leave the big theater - and for only $5 :) Although it's a smaller theater, I love to see movies there!

This weekend I saw two movies that I want to share with you!

Extremely Loud & Incredible Close

I saw this on Saturday at the big theater with Mom. It was a really good movie! It was quite sad, but very good and worth the watch. The story is about a little boy who loses his father on 9/11. He then embarks on a journey to find something that his Dad left him - he just doesn't know what he's looking for. All he has is a key. It's a wonderful story and based off a book by Jonathon Safran Foer.
The little boy is an incredible actor especially for this being his first big movie. Also starring is Tom Hank and Sandra Bullock! Faves!
I would recommend this movie! It does have some funny parts, but I'd still bring your Kleenex ;)

The Muppets
I went to see The Muppets yesterday with Mom, my Aunt and cousins at The Lyric! At first I didn't want to go, but I'm glad I did! I don't remember ever watching the Muppets before (in fact, I didn't know many of their names...just the really popular ones like Kermit and Miss Piggy) but I figured I'd go ahead and give it a shot. I'm a movie lover - I like to see a variety of films! Overall, this movie was much better than I thought it would be! It was really funny in a way I can't just have to see it!
The cast was great, too! Jason Segel and Amy Adams are the main stars, but there are appearances by Jack Black, Neil Patrick Harris, Emily Blunt, Whoopi Goldberg, Selena Gomez, Sarah Silverman & more. Lots of cameos!
Even if you don't think you're a Muppet fan like I did, I would definitely recommend seeing this when it hits the Redbox :)
Are there any Muppet fans out there? Have you seen this movie and did you like it?

Two movies in one weekend was quite the treat :)
Now here are some upcoming movies I'm excited to see!

  1. I want to see Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close so bad! I think I want to read the book first, though. Loved the Muppets, too! :)

  2. My daughter is so excited to watch Big Miracle!

  3. I cannot wait until the Vow comes out!

  4. I really want to see Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close!!

  5. I love movies, but I hardly ever see them in the theater. I wait for them to come on TV and record them. So it'll likely be 2-3 years before I see any of these. ;o) Good picks though - most of these would be ones I'd want to see, too!!!

  6. I want to see all these movies! We saw the Muppets over Christmas and it was so cute! 5 Yer Engagement looks hilarious!

  7. I want to see Extremely Loud and Incredibly close! Looks so good!!

  8. Aw man I really want to see the Vow, the Lucky One, and the whale movie! And I'd never heard of the 5 year engagement! That looks hillarious too! Just found your blog and glad I did!
