Bourne Ultimatum / HP & the Deathly Hallows

Wow, what a great entertainment day! We went this afternoon to see The Bourne Ultimatum. Fantastic! As my dad would've said - a real womp-stomper! The movie never slows down, it's one mad and terrific race to the finish. OK, 2 things might be a bit unrealistic *smirk*. #1 Why if the guy standing between the bomb and the man in the car isn't injured is the guy in the car dead? #2 How does anyone walk away from that car chase?? Great movie, A+

Now, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - don't look here for a spoiler. But what an amazing book. I can't begin to express how sad I am that this was the last installment in Harry's life. I have enjoyed these books so much. My son was 11 (Harry's age in book #1) when the first book was published. He has grown up with Harry, Ron and Hermoine. He is not a reader, but reads these books (all 700+ pages of them) from cover to cover. This last book does not disappoint. The characters are heroic, faithful, devoted (to each other and their cause.) If you've not read the books, now is the time to start. Enjoy!

can't wait to see the new bourne movie. will have to wait until the DVD, though, since sweet baby girl can't sit through that at the theatre and i'm still nursing exclusively...maybe when she's a bit bigger...i'm not into those action flicks, but what i love about jason bourne is that he's a self-made hero. no gadgets or fake face masks being pulled off (like Mission Impossib(ly dumb) 3). Bourne is powerful and smart and that's what makes the movies so good!

I so agree with you on the Harry Potter review. It was a terrific book! I actually cried towards the end!

I told my sister that I cried and she just looked at me like I was from outer space. ;)

I can't wait to see Ultimatium- but like the other two, i'll probably be waiting until it comes out on DVD.
