    I think I liked Man of Steel much better than you, Stacy. 🙂 Serenity is a fan favorite in our house. We love Firefly. I haven’t seen any of the other movies you mention. My most recent movies were Wolverine and Fruitvale Station.

      I think most people did! I was happy to realize that my husband felt the same way I did. At least someone agrees with me!
      I’ve never seen Firefly, but now I may have to watch the old shows.

    I saw All The President’s Men in college with the guy I dated pre-Carl and don’t remember enough about it. For The Heat I’d say – Funny female buddy cop film. By the way, I still laugh when I think about the “Are you a Narc?” scene.

    Oh Oh you have liked all the ones I want to see bar Superman. I have heard it is a bit well slow and boring. Only God Forgives I have also heard is super violent and seems to be a love or hate film. Clearly you did not like it 🙂 I wont even bother giving it a try as I am not a fan of the director at all.

    I have a soft spot of Serenity. ITs campy and silly but I just love it anyway 🙂

    PS you still having problems commenting on my blog??
