Movie Review...

So my friend is back in town and we actually made it to lunch and the movies yesterday! Now I have to tell you this was not my first choice of movies.... but hey.... And after a huge lunch of Japanese food (Oh YUMMY - my favorite) I went into the movies sleepy.... add to the combination it was colddddddd in there, and only four hours of sleep the night before - well as you can see everything was lined up and in place for a nap!

I even turned to my friend and said I REALLY hope this movie is good or I am going to fall asleep!!! I yawned and yawned - the previews started and I was still yawning..... and then..... the movie started!!! I was wide awake from the beginning and all the way to the end!



In a rural English village in, oh, let's say, Olden Times, a young man named Tristan tries to win the heart of a young lady. All she wants is a fallen star. Easy enough. All the young chap has to do is cross the wall that separates their village from the Faerie realm. Gulp. He does so, only to discover that the falling star is in fact a beautiful lady. And guess what, she's being pursued by other folks too - dangerous folks who all desperately want this star. Oh, what an adventure our Tristan will have as he travels across the universe, encountering witches (which are quite funny!), pirates, ghosts, and more!

A dream cast of A-list talent, including Peter O'Toole, Ricky Gervais, Claire Danes, Michelle Pfieffer and Robert De Niro as the pirate Capt. Shakespeare.

It was a wonderful love story, with lots of humor (oh and let me tell you - when "Tristan" has his make over given by the ummmm, Captain - lets just say he is major hubba, hubba to look at from that point on!!!!!) Over all I would give this one four diet cokes and a medium bag of popcorn!

(Not as good as "Hairspray" mind you - which I am still talking about to this day. I even got the soundtrack to the movie - which I love to listen to when I am driving - it makes me laugh!!!! Especially the song "Cooties" (click on the title then go to track 18)!!! Bahahaha!!)

Hope you are having a great weekend!
Until Next Time!

Lori,
I would simply LOVE this plate. Where did you get it at? I am army wife to a wonderful aviator down in Ft. Rucker, AL. This would be so perfect to have here. Can you still get one? I would buy one from you if you can. Our AAFES store doesn't have anything like this, I looked the other day.
Thanks so much for your stories too.
