The Proposal - Sandra Bullock, Ryan Reynolds

I went to see this movie with my husband yesterday. I had so much fun. I think Sandra Bullocks makes great romantic comedy movies. She and Ryan Reynolds makes the screen sizzle. It was a pleasure to watch a good film and be entertained. There are many laugh out loud moments. There are also some tender moments that makes me teary-eyed. I will watch this movie again.

Top Five Casts:
Sandra Bullock ... Margaret Tate
Ryan Reynolds ... Andrew Paxton
Mary Steenburgen ... Grace Paxton
Craig T. Nelson ... Joe Paxton
Betty White ... Grandma Annie

I don't know how long this link will last, but I like this scene. Funny!

Poseidon (2006)

I saw this movie last Tuesday on Netflix Instant Play. I didn't bother watching it when it came out because, well, it wasn't that appealing to me then. I'm not much into movies, but it's amazing that I've been watching more of them lately than ever. I think my books are positively forlorn that I have not been spending as much time with them as I used to.

This movie is exciting, scary and fun. All things that makes a movie glue you to your seat. My daughter was cowering next to me, but of course, she stayed and watched. It was a fun movie. It was all things a movie should be. I wished now that I had watched it on big screen.

I think that I might just go ahead and pull a rabbit out of a hat. My husband wants this 73" screen TV. I'm with him on that now...where before I couldn't see the point. We have three working TV. So, we're shopping for that big screen TV now.

Top Five Casts:
Josh Lucas ... Dylan Johns
Kurt Russell ... Robert Ramsey
Jacinda Barrett ... Maggie James
Richard Dreyfuss ... Richard Nelson
Emmy Rossum ... Jennifer Ramsey
