Rescue Dawn and Enchanted

Last night we rented Rescue Dawn (I choose the movie this time since Patty choose Shrek the Third on Friday). I really liked this movie. It's a fantastic story about friendship, optimism, and survival. The acting was incredible - especially Steve Zahn and Jeremy Davies. The DVD extras include a great "Making of" feature which shows the dedication of director Werner Herzog and the entire cast. I predict that the film will get nominated for at least one Oscar.

Earlier today we went to see Enchanted. The movie theater near our house only charges $4.50 per ticket for the first daily showing of each movie. The same theater also just mailed out cards good for a free large popcorn for each visit. $9 for two tickets and popcorn...NICE!!!

The movie was good. While I'm pretty certain it's not going to win any awards, it was quite entertaining...definitely better than Shrek the Third.

Whew - three movies in one weekend...I think that must be a record for us!

Hi Abby -

Dickinson's Palm Valley 14. The price is now $5.00 (still not a bad deal!).

thanks Andy! I really enjoy your blog especially the restaurant reviews. My fiance and I recently went to The Dhaba. It was delicious food and we really enjoyed the atmosphere so we'll probably return soon.
