Horrible and Mediocre.

Horrible and mediocre is how I would describe the last two movies that Kley and I have watched. We watch way more TV shows than we do movies, so it's kind of rare for us to watch a movie. It's nice to know that we can continue a TV show, watch at our leisure (with netflix and watching online- we don't have cable), and it doesn't take up 2+ hours like movies usually do.

Kley and I have gone on TWO date nights this last month, which I am pumped about. We didn't do so hot for a bit about going on dates, so I am really glad that we've been doing better. No matter what stage of life you are at, going on dates with your spouse is incredibly important. We've done a few different things (such as going out for ice cream, driving through crazy expensive houses just to gawk, going out for dinner, etc.), but we also watched two movies.

The first was Drinking Buddies, which we mainly chose off of netflix because it had people we liked in it, namely Nick Miller from New Girl. Unfortunately, it was awful. Truly awful. One of the worst movies I have ever seen. It was really hard to connect to the characters, it was slow moving, and the ending was not an ending. It left you feeling like that couldn't possibly be the end of the movie. I won't give away the plot, although there is hardly any plot line to give away. My advice is STAY AWAY!

Last night we saw Labor Day in the theatre. We don't make it to the theatre often, and we had a special $5 coupon that expired in March that was only valid at the concession stand, so we actually got popcorn! I was really excited to see this movie, but at the end I told Kley that I would give it a C. It wasn't horrible, but definitely not a favorite. Basically, it's a single mom and her son, and they end up hiding a fugitive and they fall in love. It was an okay movie, it just left me feeling a bit uneasy.

On a much brighter note, About Time comes out on DVD this week! I am so excited to buy it and make Kley watch it with me. I loved it so much that I will actually pay full price for the DVD, and that's saying a lot for me. I think it's one of my favorite movies. I laughed, cried, and it left you feeling all warm and fuzzy about how great/important love and family is. WATCH IT!
