My second post this week... whatcha think about that? ;)

Thirteen movies watched this week... either with Jacob or by myself.
(click link for movie info/trailer)

1. Nanny McPhee (YOU HAVE TO SEE IT!!!!! We've watched it more than half a dozen times within the past two weeks. "Did he say without supper?" HA!)

2. Fantastic Four (I enjoyed it far more than I ever thought I would. Let's just say I was looking more forward to scrubbing the kitchen floor!)

3. Cheaper By The Dozen 2 (Can't top the first one... not the original one... the first one )

4. The New World (could it be any slower?)

5. Superman (the old one)

6. Secondhand Lions (for the umpteenth time. still love it.)

7. O Brother, Where Art Thou? (still hilarious! "Do not seek the treasure!")

8. My Fair Lady (again... never grow tired of this movie!)

9. National Treasure (it's great. And Encore's been playing it several times a day.)

10. Surviving Christmas (trying to cool things down here!)

11. Bad News Bears (the new one. HI.LAR.I.OUS! Can watch it back to back.)

12. Garden State (Great Movie!)

13. Junebug (Awesome!)

Wow I have not seen very many of the ones you've listed! I saw Fantastic Four though I didn't think it was that good. :\

I wanted to see Cheaper by the Dozen (1 & 2) but each time I go to rent it, it seems to be out.

Superman 1 + 2 are the best in my opinion! We saw 3 a week or so ago because it came on tv and mostly we sat mouths agape wondering how it could have ever been filmed. LOL.

O Brother, Where Art Thou? is a favorite. We've already watched it twice this week with 2 of our grandsons! Tivo deleted it, and it upset the older one! He thought we did it. So, we're waiting for it to come back on again.

Thanks for visiting my TT.

Oh, I am soooo with you on "The New World". I kept waiting for the movie to get to the good parts, but it just didn't happen.

I haven't seen a lot of those. Have you seen the X-Men movies? We went to watch the new one in theater and I was surprised to find I really enjoyed it. In fact, I went back and rented the previous ones. They are good.

Happy TT!

I think Nanny McPhee has been in the back of my mind for awhile as a movie I'd like to see. I haven't actually seen any of these though.

I'm so glad you are feeling well enough to post and watch these movies!

Thank you so much for the response to my first T-13. Alas, another great idea for a T-13 in the future (if you dont mind the pseudo-plagarism) LOL. I started reading about those two girls, and I had to step away. What a tramadic story. I hope you visit again. Visit anytime - who knows what I will be writing about.
