watch these : spring films

Summer Films 4Summertime has not officially hit, but already there are some great films that have been released this year. Within the last month, Geoffrey and I have already seen three! In case you were wondering, this is a lot for us. In this time span we have had one long weekend and an entire week off from work. Given that our two favourite types of dates are going to the theatre and working out at the gym, we made sure to cram in as much movie-going as we could. Honestly, these three films were also the best ones that I have seen in 2015.

These are my must-see picks for this season:

1. Mad Max : Fury Road

As I wrote before, “Um, Tom Hardy, as Mad Max, and in 3D? Sorry men, but women everywhere will never be the same.” What can I say about this film except that it is an insane ride from start to finish? There’s a reason why it’s rated 98% on Rotten Tomatoes. It is an entertaining and well-acted slice of unrealistic heaven. If you are in need of an amazing film for all genders, grab your 3D glasses and popcorn, and go and see Mad Mad : Fury Road in theatres. 

2. Pitch Perfect 2

If you were to ask my husband if I dragged him to this movie, he would probably say yes. Yet, that is the furthest thing from the truth. While we are not big on comedies, we recently watched Pitch Perfect on Netflix and loved it! I adore Rebel Wilson, and think that she and Melissa McCarthy are the funniest comedic women currently in Hollywood. Suffice it to say that I will watch anything that they are in. Pitch Perfect 2 was incredibly raunchy and just as hilarious as the first film. Want a good laugh? Be sure to see this one!

3. Ex Machina

Aside from the envious and remote house and scenery, the plot for this movie was as original as it could be for an AI film. In general, I tend to prefer types of movies that feel like plays; with one or two settings and but a few actors. Ex Machina was just that, yet it managed to cram intelligent conversations in with action. Additionally, a robot wearing floral dresses and a pixie cut? Not to mention Oscar Isaac? This movie had eye candy and perfect acting coming at you from all angles. Though the ending was a bit unbelievable, the film on the whole should not be missed.

Have a wonderful and warm weekend!

picture our anniversary

001.jpg1234517691887002.jpg12003.jpg141316Two days ago, my husband and I celebrated our wedding anniversary. Considering that we only did date for a total of nine months, we have been married for almost as long as we have been together! June 6 was also the seventieth anniversary of D-Day, as well as a popular day for celebrity break-ups. I hope that’s not an omen.

The day began with Geoffrey getting ready for work. After he left, I got up and took care of our three pets that decided that it was a perfect morning to each have a minor medical issue. By 8 am, I was already out with Truman for our morning run. When I got back I opened my anniversary gift (Photoshop!) and spent the morning trying to install it while working on the HS Store. I quickly became frustrated with the program’s software so I had to enlist the help of my step-father to finish it for me. I sold a few items, got ready, and went into town to meet my friend for coffee.

By the time Geoffrey got home after work, he had less than ten minutes to eat supper. We usually try to cram many things into our days and nights together and that day was no different. The movie that we chose started at 7 pm. He hurriedly changed and we drove to a field where we had our first joint photo op in almost a year. Then we drove into town and purchased our tickets to see Locke which to our good fortune was playing at our favourite theatre. However, while we were waiting we were told that there was a technical problem with the film and that the showing may be cancelled. So we waited, Instagrammed, and waited some more. Finally, we were told that everything was in working order. Thank goodness, because it was such a good film.

After the movie ended we picked up some iced coffees and went home. Geoffrey took Truman for one final walk and we fell asleep watching The Adventures of Babysitting. Does it sound like a random and somewhat hectic anniversary? Yes, but I wouldn’t have it any other way. The way we spent it pretty much epitomizes how we have spent the last four years as a married couple. The real relaxation will happen this week while we will be glamping in the same national park that we visited last year. I can’t wait to share the photos with you all!

Have a great week, friends!
