I watched two movies this weekend that I really liked. Both were on "the list" for a long time, but since I rarely watch movies, it's taken me a while.
Mystic River with Sean Penn & Kevin Bacon http://disney.go.com/disneyvideos/liveaction/pirates/main_site/main.html and Pirates Of The Caribbean with Johnny Depp & Orlando Bloom. http://disney.go.com/disneyvideos/liveaction/pirates/main_site/main.html When it first came out, I really didn't think I'd be intersted in watching a "pirate movie" but I LOVED it. Johnny Depp definitely made the movie. I also really enjoyed him in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory http://chocolatefactorymovie.warnerbros.com/ which I saw last week. I heard somewhere that Johnny Depp fashioned his character after Keith Richards. I could totally see that while watching the movie. In fact, I heard Keith Richards is playing Jack Sparrow's father in the sequel!! Check out a photo comparison at the top!
I can't believe how much it feels like fall today. I've been sensing it for about a week now, but today was downright chilly and my favourite season is almost upon us... in fact it is one month from today! That means shorter days, crisp evenings, picking apples, pumpkins, hayrides, thanksgiving... The only problem with fall is that it is quickly followed by my LEAST favourite season...winter. Oh well, I'm determined to make the most of the rest of my summer.
