This past weekend was another long one for me as it was Family Day on Monday. I fully appreciated having three days to relax at home. It was also a movie bonanza weekend. Here's what I saw:
- Oceans 13: Not as good as 11, but oh so much better than 12. It made me miss Las Vegas from last weekend.
- The Namesake: An interesting movie, but I suspect this is one of those cases where the book is much better than the film.
- The Spiderwick Chronicles: I saw this one on the IMAX screen and it was pretty cool. Not as good as the Golden Compass, but definitely cool effects.
- Jumper: Never have I heard so many people complain how bad a movie was after exiting the theatre. Too many tangents on the story line and the leads were not great...
Apart from that Neil and I made a fabulous dinner on Monday night. We made lamb shanks, polenta (strong enough to hold a wooden spoon upright) with gorgonzola cheese in it and sticky toffee pudding.
