Weekend Fun

wow, two weeks in a row we went to the movies!


But now we will be eating rice and rock soup for a month…. maybe two!

Guess what we saw this week?

Did you say Jack the Giant Killer?

if you did….. you are wrong.


What did we see then?

Jack the Giant Slayer. 

Seems the name changed, killer is bad and slayer is good.


So why is Jack.. oh that is him resting on the beanstalk…. wanting to slay giants?

I mean, they are soooo cute. Here look.

Not like this evil protector of the Princess


who is obviously scary and mean…. look, stare into his dreamy evil eyes and you will see what I mean.

On to the review. 

Did we like it?



Yes it was 3d, I like those movies. This one was not OMG wow in 3d, I only ducked once, and didn’t scream at all. 

No popcorn was tossed in the air… well it is too expensive to toss in the air. pssst, we snuck in licorice. shhhhh. don’t tell. 

Humor, there was a lot, a love story too. The graphics were very well done, the giants looked real so did the beanstalk. (maybe they got real giants?)

It ended too quickly, now this doesn’t mean I think there should have been more, it was like going full speed and then pow it sort of ended. I can’t say more without giving things away.

Should  you go to see it?

Certainly, it was a good movie and a fun night out. 

Oh last week we saw die hard once more in case you didn’t die harder the last time that you died hard with a vengeance or once again... uhm.. die hard 12?

it was ok.

But look, the giants… soooo cute

  1. I started reading and thought….oh…will she give it away? And then I thought….noooooo….Amber would not do that.

    But …WHAT??!!?! There are giants in the show?!?!?!??

    And … OMG! 3D?!!??! Damn-it … now I know it’s not in 2D…or 4G … or 23P.

    Thanks for giving the the story away. Harumph!

  2. Mmmm… stone soup. 😉

  3. Where on earth did you get those pics – they are amazing! How much is it to go the Movies over there? xx

  4. I went to see Oz the Great and Powerful, my youngest treated me to a movie… It was OK but we weren’t hugely impressed (we give it a 2 out of 5 rating)… afterwards we both said we should have seen Jack the Giant Slayer… maybe next time… But I still had a great time – I love being able to hang out with my Kara-boo 🙂 (we didn’t do snacks last time we did they cost more than our admission did!!!)

    • Quickly converts Andrea’s 2 out of 5 into … 4 out of 10 …..so we can better compare to Ambers’s 7 of 10 rating. Heh.

    • We skipped snacks once. Then you see everyone munching on popcorn and even though you just had dinner and are not hungry.. it makes you want to reach over shoulders and grab a handful. Then you start to become thirsty… it preys on your thoughts, constant thoughts…. a cool drink… so dry…. eeeps

      but they ARE so expensive. OMG.

      OZ looks interesting, but the flying monkeys in the first OZ gave me such nightmares as a child… and the new ones look even more menacing… blech. lol. wait.. tmi.

  5. can’t wait till this comes out where i live. and yes, the giant is absolutely dreamy. i might even just LET katie take liam.
