I’m not a very big ‘movie buff”. Don’t get me wrong, I do love a good movie, but we rarely go to the movie theater. We would rather spend three hours doing something outdoors instead of sitting in a dark theater. I really can’t even sit at home long enough to watch a movie; there’s just always too much other stuff that I’d rather be doing.
The last “grown up” movie that I saw at the theater was “Sex in The City, The Movie” with BigSis and SisMama last year. And on my recent visit to Chicago, I took the little guys to see “Up” in 3D.
In all reality, there aren’t that many movies that I’m excited enough about to want to go see at the theater. I love romantic comedies and I’m a real sap for a happy endings. I’m not into vampires and I can’t stand horror flicks or violent films so that pretty much rules out a lot of new movies.
When I first heard that Meryl Streep was playing Julia Child in the upcoming movie, Julie and Julia, I knew that I wanted to go see it at the theater when it opens on August 7th.
We grew up watching Julia Child and I love Meryl Streep, so I can’t wait to see this film. I love the story about Julie and her commitment to cook daily from Julia Child’s cookbook.
I just recently ordered Julie and Julia: 365 Days, 524 Recipes, 1 Tiny Apartment Kitchen so I could browse through the book before I see the movie.
I’m think that this movie is going to inspire me to cook something from Julia Child’s cookbook.
