The little girl in DBAotD, Bailee Madison, is such a good actress. I remember her from Brothers and she was amazing then. I'll be honest, I can't really recommend the movie but she was the best thing in it. I don't like gore and they managed to provide it yet the gore was performed by these little monsters that looked like they came straight out of Labyrinth so it was hard to be truly terrified. The Mr was like "lame!" I concur.
Contraband drew us in with the trailer. I can't help it but every time we see Mark Wahlberg in any acting role we can't help but think of the SNL skit Mark Wahlberg Talks to Animals where Andy Samberg mocks him and he was like "Hey donkey, what's going on? You're a donkey, I like that." So even in the most serious of moments, we could bust out laughing just at a tone in his voice because in our minds we're going "hey donkey...you're a donkey!" Of course what made it even better was how he poked fun at himself in response to the original skit. Anyhoo, the movie was your typical shoot 'em up curse fest but with a nice twist or two. Recommended if you're into that kinda thing.
We had our usual movie snack...
We had enough calories to throw in a diet hot chocolate too. Yum! I don't know what it is about movie night but we've got to have something a little extra (budgeted into the calories before consumed of course) and that light kettle corn from Trader Joe's is the perfect amount of sweet and salty and only 110 calories per bag! We also take them into the theater when we go on rare occasion. They'll be coming with us at the drive in Sunday night so we need to make a TJ's run this weekend.
Do you have movie snacks when you rent movies or go to the movies? What kind?
