Weekend With Jenni

I previously posted about the weekend I would be spending with Jenni, and now I thought I would share! It was wonderful! We caught up on so much and had a blast! The weekend was full of facials, good food, good laughs, good company, and lots of movies. This leads me to my movie critique...

It was entertaining. Good for what it is: An action-packed, historically loaded, Indiana-Jones-like-movie. I am not a Nicholas Cage fan, but it does keep you in the middle of the action. Worth seeing, but not necessarily in theaters.

Juno was hilarious. It did not exactly condone teen pregnancy, but it sure did make me laugh a lot. She was amazing, he wasn't too bad either. A great duo. Definitely worth seeing. Go prepared to laugh at moments dripping with sarcasm and wit and you will not be disappointed!

Atonement was by far the best of the three. I have the book, and I now I must read it. I don't want to say much about the movie in fear of giving it away. So, if you like art, and creativity, and realness, and truth, and honesty, all rolled into one film, this is the film for you. A must see for any film student or guru. Simply amazing.

So we saw 3 movies in a 24 hour period! Haha! Atonement was the only planned movie, the rest were kind of random. It was a wonderful weekend, and I am worn out! Hope everyone else had fabulous times this past weekend.

I'm so jealous. I've been dying to see Atonement but no one will go with me. I've also been wanting to see Juno too. I love the guy, did you ever watch him in Arrested Development. Glad you guys had fun!

I was going to post about these in my recap of our weekend! Hope you don't mind if I'm a copy-catter! I so enjoyed seeing them, and your parents being the nicest folks EVER to take us out and being so hospitable... It was just a delightful time. But more about that in my post!
