We’ve seen a couple of movies recently, in the comfort of our own basement.

Alpha and Omega (2010)

Amber (11) has been wanting to see this one since the first preview we saw. If it has wolves, it has to be good. There’s a girl alpha wolf and a boy omega wolf who get transported to a new park. They have to work together to get home, and of course fall in love along the way. Amber said she liked, I though it was so-so. Even Amber commented that she wished they didn’t act so much like people. I did like that the girl was strong and a leader. And the whole opposites attract thing has been done over and over, but it’s always pretty cute.

The American (2010)

David and I watched this and I think it officially lost me the next three movie picks. George Clooney, assassin in love with a prostitute, I though David would like it. I was wrong. He didn’t hate it, but it’s a very quiet, restrained movie, not something he would choose to watch. I liked it, but didn’t love it. It was an interesting take on the story. Clooney is trying to get out of the business, and has settled into a quiet town while working for one last client. What I didn’t like was the ending, inevitable, but still a cliché.

Have you seen any good movies lately?
