At our house, Friday nights are typically a pizza dinner and kid movie night. I hardly ever watch the kids' movies because I have either seen them a thousand times already (can we say "Frozen"? LOL) or I really don't want to (can we say the live action Alvin and the Chipmunk movies that Rebecca loves!).
After the kids went to bed, I then put in "The Martian" starring Matt Damon. According to IMDB.com, this is what "The Martian" is about: During a manned mission to Mars, Astronaut Mark Watney is presumed dead after a fierce storm and left behind by his crew. But Watney has survived and finds himself stranded and alone on the hostile planet. With only meager supplies, he must draw upon his ingenuity, wit and spirit to subsist and find a way to signal to Earth that he is alive.
One of my all time favorite movies is "Apollo 13" starring Tom Hanks, so I thought I would like this movie as well. And I was right. I thought it was funny, emotional, and kept me on the edge of my seat. I would highly recommend you see it.
So, for someone who typically does not watch movies, to have watched 2 in one day is something!
Have you watched any good movies lately?
