Unknown & The Adjustment Bureau

The past two weekends Mr. D and I have hit the movie theater jackpot!  We've seen two great movies two weekends in a row.  We used to see movies ALL.THE.TIME. the first couple of years we dated...but these last couple of years together we've noticed we never go to movies any more.  We've decided to change this, and lucky for us a movie date fits our budget a whole lot better than an evening spent downtown or at a pricey restaurant.

So we're back at the movies and lately we've had great luck with our choices.  I think party of the reason we stopped seeing so many movies in theater was because we could never agree on a choice.  Naturally, I love a good romantic comedy and those aren't all Mr. D wants to see.  There have been so many movies recently that really appeal to both of us so we've been thankful not to have to do the "you pick, then I pick" kinda deal. 

The weekend before last we went to see Unknown.

We caught this one at the Movie Tavern.  Do y'all have a Movie Tavern in your area?  Oh how I love that place!  The food is delish, Mr. D can have a "cold snack" (aka beer) and we can enjoy our movie in the comfort of a tall back office chair on wheels.  :)
Unknown was a great movie and we both loved it.  First, Liam Neeson is just a baller and if you don't like him then you should probably see a Doctor because there may be something wrong with you.  Also, two of my most favorite Hollywood ladies were both in this film as well.  It seems I can never get enough of both January Jones and Diane Kruger. (National Treasure, anyone?  I love that movie.  Both I and II.) 

Unknown: Two thumbs up from both Mr. & Mrs. D!  Go see this one in theaters! 

This past Saturday we went to see The Adjustment Bureau

The Adjustment Bureau was also great and we both had nothing but good things to say.  I've pretty much had a crush on Matt Damon ever since Good Will Hunting so I love when he's in a new flick.  I'm also a Mad Men junkie so I'm a big fan of John Slattery (remember when he was Carrie's politician boyfriend on Sex and the City?) and Emily Blunt is pretty cute too.  Another all star cast and another fabulous movie.  I liked this one a lot because I thought it was different than the typical movie and I was very intrigued by the story line.  When I'm running late and then get stuck in traffic or those few occasions when I've missed a flight, I often wonder if these little annoyances were more like miracles and a time my guardian angel was watching out for me.  Do y'all ever think about stuff like that? 

The Adjustment Bureau: Two thumbs up from both Mr. & Mrs. D!  Go see this one in theaters! 

I really loved both of these movies and I hope y'all do too!

  1. Glad to hear you liked "The Adjustment Burea" - that's one Hubby and I have wanted to see.

  2. I can't wait to see Unknown! HUGE Liam Neeson fan, he is such a bad a$$! "I WILL find you and I WILL kill you!" - Taken anyone, such a great movie!
    and We loved the Adjustment Bureau as well!

  3. i love the movie tavern! and the movie tickets are a little cheaper there than other theaters in town!

  4. I really want to see Adjustment Bureau! I've never heard of movie tavern I will have to see if we have one in Boise- sounds like a great idea!

  5. How funny that we both posted this today. Aren't movie dates the best? They're reasonable and you leave talking about it as a team. I love it. These were two great movies. I think we are catching Lincoln Lawyer next week.

  6. I'm dying to see both of these movies! Sadly I just have NO time anymore to go the movies. :( Major sadz b/c it's one of my favorite things to do. And I LOVE those places where you can eat and watch the movie (and imbibe a few adult libations..:)
