We didn't go out on New Year's Eve, which is the first time ever for the Cowboy and me. It was also the first time in a very long time I didn't wake up on New Year's Day without some kind of hangover. It was good. Very good.
Instead, we stayed in with the Princess and ate crappy food such as good old Chips and Dip, Chocolate, Jaffas and Ice Cream with Jaffas and Chocolate. We drank Fizzy Drinks and watched Movies. Lots of Movies.
If you haven't seen The Shallows and like a movie that has you on the edge of your seat (think Jaws), then this is the movie for you. All I can say is thank goodness we didn't watch it in 3D - lets just say I screamed a few times and hid behind my pillow a few more times!
Sisters followed which provided the light-heated relief that was much needed on my part after The Shallows!. I really enjoy Tina Fey and the combination of her and Amy Poehler is hilarious. I may or may not have cried with laughter and I most certainly did not snort at any time. That would have been the Princess. Or the Cowboy.
The Magnificent Seven certainly provided. It finished at 11.55pm, just in time to wish each other Happy New Year!
Nerve is about an online dare game with scary consequences. The story line was quite good with messages relative to today's teens.
The Legend of Tarzan and Jane. It was an easy watching movie with enough action to add interest. Perfect for a lazy Sunday.
The Hateful Eight. You need to be a die hard Quinton Tarantino fan (we are) to watch this, let alone enjoy it. The story is quite slow paced to start with. Tarantino sets the scene and acquaints you with the characters. The dialogue is typical Tarantino, lots of black humor. Just when I was lulled into a false sense of security, almost feeling bored, it opened up - literally! Lots of violence. Lots of gore. An interesting ending. Tarantino.
Thanks for reading.
