Let's Meet on Monday: My Movie Mixed Personality

We played hard outside this weekend, and allowed our worn-out selves to enjoy a couple of movies after sundown. Most often (ok, always!) my sweet husband allows me to do the movie-choosing. I pretty much like two kinds of movies: romantic comedies and comic-book-action-hero movies. We watched one of each this weekend, and I loved them both!

Leap Year was a sweet movie, and one I wouldn't mind owning. It was clean (rated PG), funny, quirky, and made my heart skip at all the right times. Our movie library is quite small, and I can't tell you how many times I've watched Sweet Home Alabama and Pride and Prejudice. I could use another chick-flick for those lazy Sunday afternoons in February. (When I'm not feeling particularly creative!) This one is going on my Christmas list.

Can I tell you how much I love the X-Men movies? I never get sick of them. Many people who know me in real life are surprised to find out about my soft-spot for super-hero movies. These ones are my favorite. Wolverine is the perfect mix of dangerous bad-boy and virtuous defender. I'm sure Brett is thankful for my fondness of something in the action genre!

Do you have a favorite type of movie? Are your interests surprising or predictable?


  1. Back when I actually had time and energy to watch movies, I liked all kinds (except horror). My favorite is definitely romantic comedy (love Sweet Home Alabama...really anything with Reese Witherspoon in it!) but I'm not picky. Maybe someday I'll be able to watch movies again...when my kids are in high school, maybe?
