Movie Marathon

I had a bit of a movie marathon yesterday with one of my daughter's and watched some great dvd's. (1$ Tuesday is always a great day for movie watching) 

The first movie we watched was Rise of the Planet of the Apes. I loved this movie, the storyline was fantastic with the smarter than smart chimps injected with a new drug to make them even smarter to then uprise against humans and their cruelty. (But then I grew up watching these movies, and loving them.) ((8.5/10))

Next, we watched Bad Teacher. It was seriously funny - and not slapstick funny, it showed a dark kind of humor I can't help but enjoy. And I think Cameron Diaz was brilliant in this one as the teacher who cares more about the expense of a pair of big breasts she thinks she needs than she does about her students. ((7.5/10))

Hanna was dvd number three. I'd been wanting to watch this one for a while, about a genetically enhanced young girl trained like an elite soldier by her 'dad' to fight and kill. It was different to many of the 'hollywood' movies and to me felt more like an European style of movie. ((7.5/10))

And then who could go past the Lion King - well Miss four couldn't! 

All in all it was a great day to treat the muse - and I even managed to write another couple of thousand words on book 2 in the Alien Hunger series :)
