Movie Date

Trae works every weekend, so that means we have all week to do what we want, go where we want, and see what we want. Well today we got all dressed up to go to the movies. I know it isn't hitting the town too big, we even went to a matinee not an evening movie. Well, we saw the movie "Taken". Let me just say, we absolutely loved it. I won't ruin the plot for anyone who hasn't seen it yet but it is a very good movie. It has a very "Bourne"-esque movie feel but it involves a family. An ex-government agency "preventer" worries about his daughter who is traveling to Paris for a vacation with a friend and no adults. He does not feel good about the trip at all to begin with. He explains to his daughter that he is worried about her not because he is paranoid, but because his job made him aware of all the business, good and bad, around the world. Well of course something happens. She is taken and her dad goes on a mad search for her. He steals, kills, and lies to gain information into her whereabouts and why she has been taken. I will not spoil it. But Liam Neeson is great, he is sweet, determined, and very good at his job in this film. We loved it, but then again we love international, top secret, aggressive movies about issues that are not always on the forefront of our everyday lives because we don't see it or experience it in any way. Go see it, you will like it. I also want to see "He's Just Not That Into You". Maybe tomorrow!

I didn't read your blog post because I want to see this movie SOOOOOO bad and I was scared it gave away something! Let me know if I'm safe to read it.

Ok, I read it! Isn't Liam Neeson the husband to Natasha Richardson? It's so sad about what happened to her.

It's hard to watch this movie. Liam Neeson's wife just died in a skiing accident. So tragic.

Good morning everybody! Have a wonderful fun Sunday from a fellow sitsa.
