Okay, my Twilight Girlfriends and I had talked about going to see this movie together, just to maybe help us get through the year until Breaking Dawn is released. We never did get around to it, and it's a good thing we didn't. My Twilight Daughter and I rented and watched it last night and I have to say, that was the worst movie either of us has EVER seen. We expected comedy, but nothing was funny. Dont waste your money or your time on this one, folks, no matter how big a Twihard you are. I give it a minus 5 on the Melscale. Worthless.
Everybody knows I LOVE Johnny Depp. (Sorry,Zac) So I was very excited to go see The Tourist starring Johnny and that chick living with Brad Pitt and all those kids. ;) Before I get into my review, I just need to say, that I'm wondering who all the "critics" are that said this movie wasn't very good. I NEVER listen to the critics anymore, because I have learned that if they hate it, I'm going to love it. And if they love it, it's going to suck rocks. Again, the professional critics were wrong. This was a GREAT movie!!!!
Johnny plays a "tourist" caught up in a mystery when he meets a beautiful (albeit VERY THIN who I SWEAR looks like she had her lips done bigger!) woman on a train. She's using him as cover. The movie is set in Italy and the scenery was beautiful! It had some action, some romance and even a little bit of comedy. I especially loved it when Johnny kept speaking in Spanish instead of Italian. There were a couple of twists I didn't see coming, and I won't go into details about those because I want you to experience it for yourself. The story was good, and the acting was great. I give it a 5 on the Melscale. (and NOT just because I've been a Depp fan since 21 Jump Street!!)
I woke up with Mary on my mind this morning. I was wondering what she was thinking this week, all those years ago, before she delivered Jesus. What was she thinking? Was she scared? Calm? Resigned? I kept thinking about how miserable I was the last couple of weeks before I had each of my kids, and I can't imagine riding on a donkey at that time! Or giving birth in a dirty, drafty barn. How overwhelming to be chosen as the mother of our Savior! To see the angels singing in the fields...to hold that baby in her arms! That baby grew up and died for ME. He died for YOU, too. He is truly the greatest gift EVER. Have fun this Christmas...buy gifts, sing carols, eat lots of sweets, watch all the classic holiday movies..but please, don't get so wrapped up in the tinsel that you forget the true reason we celebrate Christmas. Happy Birthday, Jesus! And thank you........ *turn up your speakers and take a minute to listen to the song
