Let's go out to the Movies...

Well it’s official. I have a girl crush on Angelina Jolie. Actually, I have always liked her as an actress, except for that horrible Mr. & Mrs. Smith that took itself too seriously and it was way overblown. Yesterday we finally got to a movie theater (see the New Orleans post for the last time we tried) and we saw Salt and it was good. The kind of movie that satisfies when you're in the mood for car chases, explosions and fight scenes.

You've come a long way baby!
Salt is an action movie and for me hits all the right notes that an action movie should have; fast-paced, violent, lots of action and a story that’s not so complicated you have to stop and try to figure it out. The action star is a woman and that just hasn't been done before. Angelina Jolie is tough and believable (in that unbelievable action star way) and I really liked her in this movie. Very few women could pull it off, she has the perfect combination of kick-ass-ness and fearlessness that just comes off her in waves. I’m gushing, I know but I just came out of the movie theater really excited. I don’t call myself a feminist and shy away from labels in general, they are too confining, but I admit to being sucked into the vortex of woman power and I watched the movie in glee as she did all sorts of impossible James Bond things. I loved it, it’s about time and she was the perfect woman to do it.


  1. Once again having trouble making comment so this is a test.

  2. OK I feel like an idiot for having so much trouble posting comments but I think I finally have a Google Account so maybe I won't have so much trouble in the future. Just wanted to say I was glad to know you enjoyed the movie that much. Been wanting to see it but wasn't sure if it would be worth the admission price. Now I know I have to see it on the big screen. Thanks for the review.

  3. Fake! Girls have cooties!

  4. Angelina doesn't have cooties! Take that back!


Do what?
