Blind Side and New Moon

Yesterday, hubby and I managed a double feature. We went to see "Blind Side" first which started at 10:45 a.m. and were glad we weren't planning to see "New Moon" then because there was a huge line already for people who had purchased tickets ahead of time. We bought tickets for the 2 p.m. showing of "New Moon". We had only 20 minutes between the two shows.

We both loved "Blind Side". Sandra Bullock plays a rich, Southern, Christian white socialite who befriends and gives a home to a big, black teenager. It's definitely a feel-good movie--and definitely entertaining. Sandra Bullock was definitely the right person to play the part of this fearless woman who does what she thinks is right no matter what her friends or anyone else may think. Fortunately, her husband and children go along with her.

New Moon played in the biggest auditorium (as well as another small one at different times) and though there were lots of people there, it wasn't full. I liked the movie--a romantic fantasy all the way. All the girls and women in the audience seemed to love it too from the oohs and aahs I heard. Of course it's not over--two more to come.

The young man (supposed to be 17 and I'm sure he isn't much older) who plays the vampire is quite sickly looking, like he has leukemia or some other horrid disease. The young man who plays the Werewolf isn't nearly as handsome in the face (though there are many who would argue this point) but he's got quite a physique which is displayed a lot in the movie.

My husband wasn't thrilled with it, but he didn't go to sleep. He goes to sleep a lot in movies and I have to poke him when he snores, but New Moon had enough action to keep him awake.

Anyway, I enjoyed the day. We had breakfast out before we began our movie marathon and ate dinner at our favorite Thai place afterward.

See the movies for yourself and let me know what you think.
