May 26th, 2006

Sorry guys, I should have posted sooner for input; I didn’t even see your comments until now and we’re back from the theatre. We saw Mission Impossible III which ended up getting zero votes. Go figure. Originally I was interested in seeing Over The Hedge, but I have to tell you, I didn’t care much for Madagascar and was worried it would be a lot like it. Plus there were a bunch of kids going into that theatre. So it was down to X-Men 3 or MI:3, and since Joe wanted to see both and I’m not that big of an X-Men fan, well you can see what led to the decision. As much as I think Tom Cruise is a complete loon, he is a damn fine actor. Almost sexy in his roles even though normally I don’t find him attractive. The movie was good, lots of stuff blew up, and someone lost their shoes which would make Dane Cook laugh (who, by the way, was on Leno last night and looked quite fetching in his suit … and will also be on Jimmy Kimmel tonight).

We tried a new theatre called Charlestowne 18, run by a company called Classic Cinemas. They had a theatre near our old apartment but we only saw one movie there because they didn’t have stadium seating. Luckily this theatre is newer so this wasn’t an issue. They also offer free refills on any size popcorn and pop. The matinee price is only $5.50 a person which is the cheapest we’ve found in the area. The Loews nearby charges over $7 for matinees now which is why we stopped going to the movies weekly. The screens are a bit smaller than we’re used to but you don’t notice it once the movie starts. Everything was so nice, we’re thinking about going back on Sunday to see X-Men 3 because I know Joe would really like to see it.

For lunch we went to Pepe’s. I’ve always loved their beef tacos and they didn’t disappoint. They are seasoned perfectly and the corn tortillas are so soft! Yum yum yum. I highly recommend their tacos. I used to go there all the time when there was one five minutes away but it has been a few years since we’ve ate there. It’s like nostalgia week for food, isn’t it?

    Hello! I have to recommend X-men 3. We just saw it about an hour ago. I have never seen the first to X-men and really knew very little about the series, but I totally enjoyed the movie anyway, and now I want to see the first 2. So hopefully if you guys end up going on Sunday you’ll like it.
