Movie night!

There's this thing we do once a month that we love...
It totally rocks.

Hubby makes homemade pizza...

 Before...
 After...
 Even more after...

We make popcorn in the microwave...

Me and a certain little helper make smoothies...


 Seriously good...

The boys get to choose a movie for them to watch.

Last night was...well you can see for yourself...




It was a big hit with the boys...

With John Lasetter (founder of Pixar and all round awesome person) as Executive director I'm not surprised. It brought back the glory and quality of the original Disney Winnie the Pooh.

Movie night score: 10/10

Then once the boys have gone to bed (a whole hour later than is usually allowed), It's time mummy and Daddie's movie choice...


It was my choice this time...

We enjoyed it mostly...


But in my 'professional opinion' it fell short of its potential to be great. Amanda Seyfried and Gary Oldman acted their little socks off. But the love interest didn't work, his acting wasn't good and quite frankly I didn't care about what happened to him. In fact I would have preferred her with the other guy who they built up and did nothing with. The ending didn't work for me. I wanted to rewrite it.

Shame though, it could have been awesome.

Movie night score: 4/10

Still I enjoyed the evening. I went to bed with a happy, very full belly, warm with red wine and a plan to write Red Riding Hood 2 the version that should have been...
