I didn't have anything I needed to do - or anywhere I needed to go - today, so I decided to watch a few movies and make a start on reading "Quidditch Through The Ages" (which I will tell you about after I've read it).
So... On to the movies!
The first one was "Daddy Day Care"... I'm sure I've posted about it on here before. Besides, you probably all know it... You know? The one where Eddie Murphy plays a dad who starts up his own day care service with his friend after he gets fired because there aren't any good alternatives to the posh, expensive preschool his son had just started going to. Anyway... It's a really funny movie. Or, I think it is.
Then I watched "Liar Liar"... Another funny movie! Again I'm sure I've posted about it before, but - just in case - I'll tell you that it stars Jim Carrey as a lawyer and dead-beat dad who's son makes a birthday wish that his dad couldn't tell a single lie for one whole day. And his wish comes true.
I also watched "The Water Horse" today. For those who don't know what it's about, here's what it says on the back of the DVD (copied from LadyStyx's comment on a post written a couple of weeks back):
"When a lonely young boy named Angus discovers a large, mysterious egg along the shores of Loch Ness, no one is prepared for what lies within. He soon discovers that the strange, mischeivious hatchling inside is none other than the Water Horse, the loch's most mysterious and fabled creature. But with the Water Horse growing ten times its size every day, Angus finds it increasingly hard to keep his new friend a secret."
It was a really good movie. Kelly was watching it with me and said he found the ending sort of sad. I see where he's coming from, but wouldn't say that myself. It was a bit of a tear-jerker for people who get very emotional when watching movies like "Free Willy" or "E.T." though. I don't mean the whole movie. I'm talking about the endings. Hope I'm making sense here. LOL!
You should hear the wind we have right now... Sounds like there's a pack of wolves howling at our door trying to get in. Not that I'd blame them with the way it's raining out there!
