3 new movies!

I know, I know, 2 posts in one day...crazy.

But I've been watching a lot of new movies, so I wanted to post about them. On Friday, I got to reconnect with 2 college friends near and dear to my heart! It was a short visit, but it was fun, as always. We all watched The Prestige. It's about magic and magicians. It's actually a well made film, but I was SO tired I didn't really understand it until 15 minutes after the movie was over. It's one of those that you need to be really awake for. But, it was really good, I recommend it.

Today the roomie finally sat me down and got me to watch Singing in the Rain. Not that I was fighting it, but we just haven't had the time. It was a fun movie to watch, and I usually always love musicals. If you haven't seen it, you should. We watched that from about 7-9.

On Friday I had rented Casino Royale and Blood Diamond. Right after Singing in the Rain, we decided to go with Blood Diamond. Big change? uh yeah! It was an awesome, awesome, awesome movie. I was impressed with the performances and the overall story line. It breaks my heart to know about all those people losing their lives, just because of diamonds. Why do we choose diamonds for engagement rings anyways? There are tons of stones that are just as pretty! Makes me want to be in Africa now...not July!

Tomorrow is all about Bond...James Bond.

Your female Kenya leader says that Blood Diamond is totally my movie... you can ask her why sometime.

It's funny how it's my movie, I haven't even seen it yet.

(and yes, I had those feelings even before I found out about the movie)
