Last week we rented Jack Reacher. It was good. It didn’t wow me but it entertained me well enough. Surprisingly, Don seemed to enjoy it just a tad more. It’s not his usual movie-fare but something worked well enough to garner his approval. In this crime drama-thriller, a sniper kills 5 seemingly random people in a Pittsburgh park. All evidence points to one person, easily apprehended. Jack Reacher, former Major in the US Army Military Police Corps, appears on the scene and he pursues the truth with calm, calculated indifference. I’ve never read any of the books that the film was based on, but more than once during the movie I could envision how it would make for a good read.
We’ve also been watching the Iron Man movies this past week. I wanted to see Iron Man 3 over the weekend but it just didn’t happen. We only got through movies 1 and 2 and still want to watch The Avengers again before we go. It had been a long while since I’d seen Iron Man 2 and I’m glad to have watched it again. I’d definitely forgotten a few things. Hopefully we will get out to see Iron Man 3 this week because then I’m going to be chomping at the bit to see the new Star Trek movie. OMG. So excited! I also want to see Epic coming out later this month, which is a lot of movies for us in one month! Why do they have to stack all the really good ones on top of one another? LOL
Guess what else is coming out in September? Riddick. Vin Diesel AND Karl Urban? Holy crap. Cannot. Wait.
We all began as something else.
