The Secret Life of Bees


I was really impressed with the movie "The Secret Life of Bees", which I saw tonight. Joe met with some friends to see "Religulous", but I couldn't make their movie time due to waiting for the sitter, plus I wasn't really interested in seeing that movie anyway, but when his movie ended, he came in and finished the movie with me, which was nice.

The characters were all so great, and the story, heartwarming. It for me was a tear jerker, and would be for anyone soft hearted like me. Paul Bettany is also in it, and plays Dakota Fanning's characters dad, and does well. Jennifer Hudson was great, and Sophie Okonedo (who I didn't recognize, but was in Hotel Rawanda) was really really good. But if you don't want to cry, then don't go see this one. But truly it was one of the better movies I have seen this year.

When we got home, I tried to open the front door to find a mysterious dog growling and coming toward me as to attack. I screamed, and ran back to my car. Half an hour later, a cop showed up to block the dog in so we could get inside, and let our babysitter out. Half an hour after that, animal control finally showed up, and is now outside, she buttered him up and managed to get the dog on a leash, and got it into the van. An interesting evening, to say the least. Happy Friday, now Saturday. Goodnight.

I saw a preview for the movie and thought that it looked good. I'll definitely have to start a list of movies I want to see and put that on the top.
