What We’re Watching…

Here’s a quick look at what is hitting the big screen this week.

Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps:  In a follow-up to the original look behind Wall street greed, Micheal Douglas reprises his role as Gordan Gekko.  This one has a more family angle as Gekko tries to befriend and manipulate his daughter’s fiancée played by Shia Lebeouf.  Doubtful this one is a good as the original, but it got some hype at some of the film festivals.  Oliver Stone is directing, so you know it will be solid.

Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole:  Some lame movie about owls.

You Again:  A comedy starring Kristen Bell (so hot), Jamie Lee Curtis, Sigourney Weaver, and Betty White (we love you).   This movie is about high-school rivals getting even with each other across two generations.

Here’s a quick look at what we are checking out on Netflix this weekend.

Eggshellwhite:

True Blood Season 2, Disc 4:  This season is so much better than the first.  Cliffhanger ended the last disc with a suicide bomber wanting to take out a bunch of vampires.

Burn After Reading:  Actually revisiting this one since I saw it in the theater.  It was really funny and I know that it will make me laugh again. The Coen brothers rock.

WhiteGlossy:

Tru Blood Season 1, Disc 1: Fine… I’m going to finally give into the hype and see what this thing is all about.
