...Inception! I do recommend this movie but make sure you take a bottle of aspirin with you. There is a lot of mindbending scenery, a complicated storyline, and your brain needs to be running on all four cylinders. Concentration is key! Trust me, this movie takes a lot out of you. By the time I got out of the theater, my head was spinning, I was starving, and I just wanted to lie down and take a nap!
The acting was surprisingly great. I say this because I think the last DiCaprio movie I saw was Romeo & Juliet which I did like. No, I did not see Titanic, don't know why. But he has grown into a wonderful actor since Growing Pains! Why am I the last to know? Same with Joseph Gordon-Levitt, I know he has had a few successful movies but could only remember him as Tommy from 3rd Rock from the Sun. There are also great performances from Ken Watanabe and Ellen Page the girl from Juno.
Here's a huge display for the new Stallone movie featuring a host of actors best known for their action roles. Arnold Schwarzenegger makes an appearance in this movie and it did cross my mind as to how he handled the delicate matter of his salary. Did he donate it like he did the last time, he is after all still our Governator.
The new Will Ferrell/Mark Whalberg movie. It seems funny from the preview.
Lunch at last! I think I nearly collapsed because I was so hungry and tired from the movie. We went to California Pizza Kitchen and I entered the restaurant confident in what I wanted to order only to discover the Peking Duck pizza was no longer on the menu - they discontinued it!!! Arrrgh - don't you hate that! I ended up with the California Cobb pizza which the waitress said I would enjoy, and I did! It's my new favorite and here it is...oh, it was yummy!
On my next post I plan on taking you around Fashion Valley Mall where world class shopping stands at the ready! Here is a little teaser...
