I had a not so relaxing Easter, but it's all good (apparently), on the plus side I did get to spend time with my lovely cuj and her kidlets. Plus I had 5 1/2 days off - always a good thing in my book. And pray tell how did I spend my time over Easter. I began the celebrations on Thursday night by heading to see 'Race to Witch Mountain', which was actually rather good. I knew I would enjoy it, but it was a lot funnier than what I'd thought it was going to be. The Rock (or Dwayne Johnson as he is now referred to), was hitting my funny bone - the hottness factor was up to, gosh he's pretty. Anyway, here's a quick rundown of what RTWM is all about:
Las Vegas cabbie (Johnson), is trying to be all good after shenanigans landed him in jail, he finds two kids (Anna Sophia Robb & Alexander Ludwig), in his cab who later reveal that they are aliens, trying to find their ship, among other things so they can travel back to their planet and save it (as you do). They enlist the help of UFO specialist (Carla Gugino), highjinks and run ins with evil alien (Siphon) and bad FBIish type people follow (you can tell they're bad - they wear black and don't smile). I kinda just suspended reality and had fun with this, it was a great way to blow a couple hours. I'm assuming that they'll make the next movie, fingers crossed cause I want to see it as well. I also saw Monsters Vs. Aliens, but I'll save that for another post!
