Grant and I like to watch a lot of movies, so I thought I would give a review of a few we have seen lately.

Australia:  This one's story was okay, but what I really loved about it was the little boy that sings in it.  The story has some adventure and some romance, but it manly just wants to show off how hunky Hugh Jackman is.  It seems that he is posing to show off his muscles in every scene.  This one is worth renting.  I would like to buy it for the singing little boy.

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button:  We saw this one right after Christmas.  I really liked it a lot.  This is one I will definitely want to buy.  The story is about a man that ages backwards... he was born old and died young.
We saw Hancock in the theatre when it first came out, but recently rented it again.  It was worth it.  It is a comedy about a super hero who is basically a loser.  I probably wouldn't buy it, but I would definitely watch it again.

I got Planet Earth for Christmas.  I know it is not really a movie, but I don't care.  We have watched the first 2 episodes so far.  It is so good.  The scenery is overwhelmingly beautiful and the commentary is not distracting.  It is definitely worth buying.

Happy New Year!!!

We had lots of fun last night at First Night last night.  I am so glad we were able to spend New Year's with such good friends.  If you didn't go this year, you should definitely go next year.  There were lots of fun events and some really great fireworks.

One event that really stuck out in my mind were the singing Tesla coils.  Someone who was there already put a video of it on youtube.  The sound is coming from the electricity.
