Dark and Dark Lite

Saw two movies this week, one in the theatre and one on video, both good.

Lemony Snicket - A Series of Unfortunate Events

This is faux dark and very funny. Our daughter has read the first three books, upon which the movie was based, and reports that the movie doesn't stay true to the story, but she enjoyed it anyway. Jim Carey hilarious as Count Olaf, and the sets and costumes are gorgeous. My favourite part is the subtitled baby, Sunny, who says things like "She's the Mayor of Crazy Town," and "Bite me."

Last night my husband I watched Monster. It was great, although hard to watch. A love story about a serial killer. Charlize Theron and Christina Ricci are excellent in this movie, based on the true story of Aileen Wuornos, who lived life as a tragically angry and hurt outsider who worked as a prostitute and murdered several of the men who picked her up along the highway.

Time to run outside in the sunshine, I think!

Question: milk chocolate, dark chocolate or strawberry sorbet?

mompoet - enjoying some of each
