Movies #12 and #13

This past weekend I was able to add two more movies to the growing list of movies that I've seen this year. I'm doing pretty well in my pursuit to see 25 movies in the theater this year, although it seems like so many times when I plan a trip to the movies, something that inevitably happens that prevents me from going. This time I was fortunate enough to be able to go to the movies without incident!

The first movie I saw was The A-Team. This movie is based on the TV show from the 1980's. The TV show was a little before my time (or at least, I never watched it), but I was excited to see it anyway. The movie was actually pretty good (I thought it could go either way), although I wish it didn't have so much language in it. The dialogue wasn't too cheesy, and there were some pretty funny parts.

The second movie I saw was Eclipse. I wanted to see this movie since I've read all of the Twilight books, although I have to confess that I'm not "crazy" about them like so many people are. I frequently get annoyed in the books when I come across cheesy and unnatural dialogue -- that sort of thing always makes me cringe and can ruin a book for me. Anyway, this movie was pretty good and definitely better than the very first Twilight movie. I thought Eclipse was on the same par as New Moon (which was pretty good, all things considering).

I always enjoy my trips to the movies, especially when the movies are enjoyable. I'm over the halfway mark... 13 down and 12 to go!

I love your movie goal Heather. There is nothing better than sitting in a movie theater and getting lost in nonsense for a few hours. Go Eclipse! Team Edward or Team Jacob?

I totally agree with you about Twilight! The cheesy dialogue annoys me as well...but I'm willing to put all that aside if there's a possibility of seeing Jacob w/o a shirt. ;) I forgot about the A-team. I might have to go see that this weekend, then.
