Insidious

Last night, the hubs and I decided to go to a late showing of Insidious.

But before I get to that, around 9:30 I was starving after a double workout from the personal trainer. (After our normal hour together, we went for a 4.5 mile run. Hubs stayed home because he wasn’t feeling well.) We headed out to Ale House for dinner were I was a very good girl – I had a grilled chicken sandwich without the bun and steamed broccoli (I’m eating low-carb this week).

We were also very tired. So this happened.

And then I was wide awake!!!! Exclamation points are fun!

Let’s just pass over the part where you tell me Sugar Free Red Bull is horrible for me. I don’t judge those sweet little cans. They’ve gotten me through some long nights.

By the way, the picture above was an attempt to show you my hair actually styled, but hubs decided the Red Bull cans were more pertinent to the picture than my head. Here’s another one. The picture is kinda boring, so I drew a flower on it for you.

After our Red Bull extravaganza, we hit up the 12:40am showing, which we thought would be a good idea at the time. I’m not sure if you’ve ever been to a PG-13 horror movie on opening night, but the 7:00 and 10:00 show times at the theatres near us always have teenagers that talk through the whole movie. It’s so bad here, that years ago we left a half hour into The Grudge 2, asked for our money back, and never went to a PG-13 on opening night again. Movies are too expensive for me to put up with that crap. < —— complaining old lady

Enter the 12:40am showing. No teenagers here, just grown-ass adults that like to give commentary on the obvious.

Anyway, when we left the theatre I just thought the movie was ok. The hubs liked it…a lot. He thinks I didn’t like it because of the audience, which is possible. So I will give you a short review based on what the hub’s thought.

First, I’d like to add that I had 3 or 4 actual chills in this movie. Not the kind where you jump a little, but the goose bumps with shivering kind over my whole body. I can’t remember the last movie that did that.

Oh, yes I can…

Insidious is about a family that thinks they live in a haunted house – so they move to a new house – only to find that it’s their son that’s haunted and not the house. They get help from someone with experience in these types of things and the story unfolds from there.

Hubs thought the movie had a really great story and it was executed well. The movie also had a creepy moment where, if you’re not looking for it, you’ll miss it. (I saw it, the hubs didn’t.) Hubs thinks that’s pretty awesome film making to be able to do something like that in the background.

Overall, I was just really happy to get out to the theatre to see a movie even with an annoying audience. Plus, this movie was definitely better than the last one we saw – Battle: LA. Avoid that one if at all possible.

  • My (biased) rating: 6 out of 10 stars
  • The hub’s rating: 8 out of 10 stars

Ok, he didn’t tell me that. I asked him how many stars he’d give it, he said “Out of 10? I don’t know.” and then went back to playing Street Fighter.

Have you seen any new movies lately that you would recommend?

    You are fabulously hilarious, as usual! “Ahhhh helllll no!” Love. Probably if you had been in that movie with a group of my students, you would have heard similar commentary . . .

    Hair is supercute (enough for me to decide that that is now a compound word). Flower, too. ;)

    I’m so lame that I probably couldn’t even make it to a 12:40am showing even with red bull!! If that movie was scary/creepy, I’m definitely not seeing it! I can’t take scary movies.

    I watched The Fighter last night and it was pretty good. Have you seen that or The Black Swan?

    • Eat:Watch:Run says

      No! But I want to see both of those! I was just suggesting Black Swan to the hubs for tonight. I saw you liked that one and thought it was weird. I like weird! Weirder the better!

      Aww, thank you! I’m not sure I love it yet. I needs to grow a little bit first I think. And yes! Sugar free red bull has been good to me when I’m about sleeping on a table at dinner, so long live those tasty little cans. :-)
