10 Best Movies You've Seen Lately

I think "lately" is a relative term, so here's some that I enjoyed "lately" and come to think of it, "best" and "enjoyed" are also terms I used loosely.

1. White Christmas: This might be the least Christmasy of Christmas movies, but I love the music and its a fun trip back in time.

2. Police Academy: This was one of the bf's Christmas gifts, fitting since he's a cop, it had been years since I'd seen it but I had a couple good laughs.

3. Up: Not at all what I expected, and not nearly a flick for the kiddos like I thought, Up was still pretty good and made me think.

4. The Hangover: Tigers love pepper. They hate cinnamon. I'm not gettin' a sig' on my beeper. Is this THE Caeser's Palace? I tend to think of myself as a one-man wolf pack. Okay, well maybe we should tell that to Rain Man, because he practically bankrupted a casino, and he was a ruh-tard.

5. Night at the Museum: Cheesy but cute. I liked seeing Dick Van Dyke again!

6. The Taking of Pelham 123: Interesting movie. Makes subways a little more scary and makes me a little more happy KC doesn't have great public transit. John Travolta is pretty scary, but I like him WAY more in roles like Danny Zuko in Grease.

7. P.S. I Love You: OK, so I haven't seen it recently, but I did have dinner at Raglan Road, the Irish place in Power & Light, so that kind of counts. Plus my roommate took it to watch with his girl the other day. I cry every time I see it. If only men could really have that much foresight... Such a great movie, with delightful eye candy.

8. Julie & Julia: Great story. Great writer. And of course, what blogger doesn't aspire to having a book or movie about their online dribble?! I know I sure do!

9. My Sister's Keeper: This goes on this list not as a movie, but as a book. The movie butchered the book, which was wonderful in every way. The movie wasn't bad by any means, but the book was just about 1,000x better. So the book makes this list.

10. Wicked: Ok, ok. So it isn't a movie. But the broadway show came through KC a few months ago and I. Loved. It. I wanted ot see it about three more times, but instead I came home and instantly downloaded the soundtrack and proceeded to learn it word for word over the next 2.5 days.

My favorite part about driving around by myself? Belting the "Wicked" soundtrack to myself.

I've seen #s 2, 3, 5, 8 and 9, and completely agree with you. I also love "Popular" on Wicked. Congratulations on a great list!
