Movies and Fast Food

I haven't made a new blog post all week which is a long time for me because since I usually make a post every couple of days. I've had a bit of a writers block and have started several posts, but never liked them enough to finish them for one reason or another. I don't like it when I go so long without blogging because I don't want to let my fans/followers down!

It seems like forever since I've been to a movie (it's only been a month, but that's a long time for a movie lover like myself, especially when there've been so many good movies out that I want to see). So today I went and saw two movies to catch up a bit since my sister Chandra was off work. The first movie we saw was The Woman in Black; a suspenseful thriller starring Daniel Radcliffe. [Short synopsis of the film: a young lawyer travels to a remote village where he discovers the vengeful ghost of a scorned woman who is terrorizing the locals.]

This is the first movie I've seen Daniel Radcliffe act in where he's not been portraying Harry Potter. I thought he did a great job and he looked really cute. This movie was so scary; probably one of the scariest movies I've ever seen. I jumped so many times I lost count! I don't mind scary/suspenseful movies, but I find that so often they either have a dumb ending or don't make sense at the end and I leave feeling dissatisfied. Fortunately, I didn't feel that way at the end of this movie, so I guess that's a good thing. I really liked this movie and recommend it, so check it out. (Just be prepared to jump!) Heather's rating: 9/10 stars
The next movie I saw was The Vow; a romance movie starring Rachel McAdams and Channing Tatum (who I think is so cute!). [Short synopsis of the film: based on the true story of a newlywed couple who is in a car accident that leaves the wife in a coma. When she wakes up she's lost all memory of her husband, so he has to make her fall in love with him all over again.] I really enjoyed this movie and the only thing that would've made it better would have been holding hands and smuggling with a boy! I recommend this movie and it's a perfect one for Valentine's Day. Heather's rating: 9/10 stars
My sister and I got Jack in the Box for dinner on the way home. I dearly love fast food, but I rarely eat it since it's so horrible for you. Last night I was perusing the Jack in the Box menu online so that I would be prepared to speed up the order process. The nutrition facts were listed so I was checking out the fat/calorie content of all the burgers and sandwiches and wow, are they horrible for you! You could do some serious damage to your diet, as some of the things on the menu had almost 1000 calories! I opted for a junior bacon cheeseburger which had less than 400 calories, so as awful as that is, it could've been a lot worse!

I just 'listened' to this movie because I woke up, had two beers and then zonked out with this movie in the background.
*I'm somewhat of a rebel on the weekend*
It gave me some very atmospheric dreams..very funny really.
I will watch it properly later.

I just found your blog but will be back.
Your joy is inspiring.
