Netflix!!!!!!!!!!!!!! =)  We have this (like seriously, $9 a month) for as many movies as you want (1 rental at a time)!  Movies arrive in like 2 days! Plus you can watch instantly on a computer, xbox, or WII! 

Sorry for the sales pitch, we are completely addicted!

Right now we’re in the middle of MONK (tv show) season 7!

Redbox is super cheap ($1 a night) and you can often get free codes.

We just rented “Babies” this weekend and it was really cute, no words though, which I kind of disliked.

Haha we’re a total redbox date couple now…..I just watched the 1st Paranormai Activity movie 2 weeks ago….then I couldn’t sleep. It freaked me out! Toy Story 3 just came out last week on DVD if you want to try that!

I also recommend Netflix – almost unlimited supply.  We just watched the new Alice in Wonderland tonight.,,

Recently we saw: 

Youth in Revolt: with Michael Cera of Superbad. It was actually pretty good. If you like movies about teenagers. It wasn’t a teen movie though. At least not to me.

She’s Out of My League: Saw it on the recommendation of a friend…and I really liked it! It was really cute.

Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs: I really liked this one!

Iron Man 2 is out! I guess Blockbuster has started a new thing where they have a ‘blue box’ that gets movies a couple of weeks before the Red Box, but still just charges $1, so that might be worth checking out, too.

We also started watching Christmas movies :).

Netflix! 🙂

My husband and I have been slowly working through AFI’s Top 100 Movies of all time.

It’s so fun to watch classics together. Takes a little planning ahead because some movies are just not available to rent.

We’re currently about halfway through.
