classic date & movie reviewing!


my stone and i went on the classic kind of date Saturday night, dinner table for two & a movie.
 i was giddy. first, because i got to order calamari at dinner and second- to eat movie theater popcorn.  and just like old times when i was young and would go to the movies with my family, i had to get Buncha Crunch.  plus its just fun to say. chocolate and popcorn and the movie theater.  oh.so.good.
the best ever combination. 
 on our date we saw "the girl with the dragon tattoo." and it was great. so great! i read the book about a year ago and was thrilled that the movie was just as good.  i feel like that never happens.*
 it was a bit hard for me for me to contain my excitement during certain parts and i reeeally tried to keep my whisperings of "don't worry she gets him back" or "oooh this is a good part" to a minimum.  because Austin was equally as into the movie and i didn't want to distract him. so we watched all 2 hours and 45 minutes, without one bathroom break, loved it so and left the theater feeling slightly disturbed. movies like this do that to me
 i give it two thumbs up and even though i had nightmares the entire night, it was totally worth it. 

* {except for the Notebook of course, and i'm pretty sure Hunger Games the movie will be just as amazing as the book}.

I love going to the movies almost SOLEY for the popcorn. And I also get the buncha crunch. Husband calls me cross because I'll sprinkle them into the popcorn bag to get a little of the chocolatey goodness melted onto the popcorn! :)

What a fun classic date! I so much hope hunger games will be as great as the book.

Ashley said...

i particularly loved that you made it the whole 2 hourrs and 45 minutes without a bathroom break! ;)

and i LOVE this date - movies were one of my fav dates....and cookie dough bites over popcorn OR buncha crunch - best.combo.ever (can you tell i'm wathcing the bachelor?)

I will not be seeing this because scary things or anything that can possible happen in real life scare me to pieces.....and i will have to sleep extra with my expired mace in hand.

ok - this is out of control long....love you!

I'm probably the only blogger who didn't like The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. I couldn't get into the book. It wasn't written in a style that I normally read. I felt LIke it was over my head. :(
