Movies , and more Movies

One thing about having a 16 year old around I see movies I might not necessarily chose, still it is good to  keep my mind open....in tune with  the "youngsters". ...  Over the last  week and a half.
3. Good way to stay cool......
First up Harry Potter which I was looking forward too, It  was excellent, a a wonderful ending to  the  series....tho I think Harry  will be back...some way.

The Zookeeper, Brittany wanted to see , we both love Kevin James . Not  the  best script  and certainly not as funny as Mall Cop.Some very funny laugh out loud  moments,  unfortunately too few..... which is a shame.
Top box office over the weekend,
Captain America  was very stylized, based in the 40's  ,  and for a comic book hero   movie  quite enjoyable. Wonderful acting by Tommy Lee Jones,  who I love and a great evil  villain Hugo Weaving.Cameo appearance by Samuel L. Jackson would have been nice to see more of him.
Brittany's comment    "not really like the 40's tho was it Gramma?"
I had to remind her I wasn't born  yet in the year this movie was based ..not that long after but still ...... Grandchildren! :-) Now if she asks about the 50's/60's.
I thought it was rather astute of Brittany to realize   that is was a rather glorified look at the 40's.

Next up this week , Bridesmaids , which we hear is very funny. Will critique it later this week.
