DAYS 70-71

Day 70:

source source

We decided to have movie day (i feel like im watching a ton of movies lately...)! We watched The Shawshank Redemption and Shutter Island. The first one was awesome! I really loved that movie; although it was kind of long, it was well worth it. It made me laugh, tear up, and I was on the edge of my seat at some parts. I actually think that was the only time I've ever seen Tim Robbins in a movie, but he was really good and so was Morgan Freeman, of course! As for the second movie, I'm warming up to it. Right after the movie, I decided that I didn't like it AT ALL. It was confusing to me (i dont like to be confused) and I thought it was a little too intense. After looking it up on Wikipedia and figuring out all of the little details that I missed, I must say it was quite a good movie. It was very suspenseful and I really loved Leonardo DiCaprio's acting. I'm very tempted to watch it again and try to figure out the things that I missed the first time around.

Day 71:


This morning, I went grocery shopping and while I was walking out, I saw the Red Box thing. I've really wanted to see Avatar since I heard all of the great reviews about it, but no one I knew wanted to watch it with me. I decided though that since it was only $1 for the night, I might as well rent it and watch it before I go to work today. Let me tell you, I was NOT disappointed. This movie was great! I loved the action scene at the end and the entire story was amazing. I don't see how anyone can come up with that stuff! I can see why it cost so much and took so long to make though. Although this one was another long one, it was well worth it and it didn't even feel like it lasted close to 3 hours!


  1. Shutter island was really cool. I want to see Shawshank, too.


  2. I liked the end of Shutter Island, like the VERY end...the whole thing where he faked being whacked again, but it didn't really make the whole movie great for me. Oh well, I'm glad I finally got to see it! Green Mile is next!

  3. okay now i really want to watch shutter island.. usually i am a big scaredy cat when it comes to movies but this one looks more like a mystery and suspense then flat out monsters and aliens! hahaah.
    lets be honest, movie days are the best!

  4. I read the book Shutter Island and really liked it - I'm assuming the movie would be easier to figure out after having read the book? Maybe?
