I was finally off over the weekend. I don't think I've had a weekend off since before Thanksgiving. That's nuts. Anyway, I made the most of it. Friday we went out to the good ol' Dixie Kitchen. God that place is awesome. I had spent the morning/afternoon watching a couple of movies,  Kentucky Fried Movie and The Simpsons Movie. If you haven't seen Kentucky Fried Movie, well I can't exactly recommend it, but everyone should see it at once in their lives. Preferably under the influence of alcohol or some other substance. It's from 1977 and it is downright offensive, rude, and at times appalling. Still, it's pretty f'ing funny at times. Brent, if you haven't seen it, I think you'd love it. But I digress, that was pretty much Friday.

Saturday we had our usual weekend morning breakfast from Medici's on 57th. Mmm. Their croissants are unbelievable. Later on in the afternoon we watched Superbad. Good times. I think we had burritos for dinner and we spent the rest of the night playing Monopoly and vegging out. Wait, I think it was Friday when I whupped some ass at Monopoly, eh, it doesn't matter. What does matter is that you get all the airports, that's the secret.

Today, we had breakfast here, hit the park with the dogs for a while, and then headed downtown to watch Juno. Juno was really good. I was glad it lived up to the hype. I liked the way it was shot and Michael Cena is becoming one of my favorite young actors, hell, I've thought he was good since I knew him as George Michael, heh. Juno's character reminded me of Natalie Portman in Garden State at times. I don't know. Long story short, I liked the movie. It had been a long time since I'd gone to the movies. The last thing I saw on the big screen was Gone Baby Gone, but today reminded me of why I probably haven't.

Parking downtown (with validation) $16.00
Two tickets around noon $15.00+
Popcorn, pop, and candy $15.00

Good lord, how am I ever going to afford taking the kids out to a show? At least I don't feel so bad about dropping money at the bar now. Geez. *sighs* I remember when I spent money without even thinking about it, damn responsibilities.

One the way home we hit Target and picked up some Subway. The rest of the night was spent watching TV, The Simpsons were awesome tonight by the way. Ah the 90's...

I guess that's about it, maybe tomorrow I'll finally get to my big New Year's post.

About a month late.

I rule.

I really, really liked it. Of course it had a great cast, but I was surprised about how well it was directed. I half-expected Casey to perform well, he has the chops, but Ben's direction was really good. You get the feel that he really knew the neighborhood and the story. The twist at the end still has me second guessing what I would do. I think I'd do the "correct" thing and reunite them but the more I think about it, it isn't the "right" thing. I really liked it.

yeah, the ending really left me thinking, which is pretty rare nowadays...i'm not sure what i would've done. i'm hoping that roles like this will push casey a little further out of ben's shadow, although ben did a hell of a job with this movie as well.

have you seen "The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford" (i copied+pasted, can ya tell?) yet? i heard it was damn good. i'm so far behind on movies, i gotta play catch-up.

oh, and i forgot to mention that kentucky-fried movie is one of the worst and best movies i've ever seen. i saw it for the first time when i was 9 or 10 years old, and i was like "ho-ly shit!". good times.

Exactly, that's the only way to describe it. One of the best and worst movies ever. Oh and same here, I have to play catch up as well. No Country, There Will Be Blood, and the Jesse James are a few of the ones I have to watch.

hell yeah, i'm looking forward to "no country...".

Haven't seen Kentucky Fried Movie. I'm adding it to my list of movies to see. Thanks for being counterproductive to my goal of decreasing that list this year. heh

No problem. I still have to MAKE my list, let alone work on it. I'm probably stealing a couple of things from yours.
