Afternoon at the mall and going to the Movies

When I got home from the wedding with Mami, my sister Roxana asked me if I wanted to join her and hubby Gilber and Luis and Lemuel to play at the mall.

Off we went and on our way there we stopped at El Gollo to get a prepaid phone card for me so I could have a local number while here.

At the Mall the kids were playing at the playground the grown ups sat down in the café area to have a snack. I went shopping and found a new pair of slippers and a cap and then I joined the others downstairs. When I got back the kids had gotten facial paintings:

Roshy and Gilber

Roshy and Gilber were telling jokes and we all had fun and then the kids went upstairs to check out the program at the Cinema and were really exited to tell us that “It’s raining MeatBalls 2” had just been released and would start in 30 minutes.

Neither of the grownups were very interested in watching that movie, but we went to check out the tickets and found that Riddick (2013) was to start only 15 minutes later than It’s raining meatballs 2″ and decided to go for that one.

The kids were highly exited to be allowed to go to the movies for the first time by themselves and we told them to come join us directly in Room 2 as soon as their movie was finished.

Our movie was a bit longer and during one of the most exiting parts of it the two kids joined us and they were super annoyed to sit with their eyes and ears covered. And the fun started when Luis during one of the most creepy scenes shouted out loud; BUT MOM, ITS NOT SCARING ME. I WANT TO SEE IT, WHY CAN’T I SEE IT? IM NOT AFRAID. ITS JUST A MOVIE and the rest of the people watching the movie started laughing…. Oh well … Kids :D

It was a good movie and we all enjoyed it a lot. A great night ! The only thing I’ll make a mark about is to bring more clothes the next time I’ll go to the movies down here. It was freezing in the room we sat in.

The Perfect Host

Fugitive John Taylor flees an initially unspecified crime, with a wounded foot after a bank robbery.

He stops in a convenience store for some disinfectant, just moments before it is robbed; he manages to turn the tables on the robber, but she gets away with his wallet.

The store’s TV identifies John and his car, so he quickly ditches it, proceeding on foot into an expensive neighborhood.

With a sob story about being mugged, he gains entry to the house of Warwick Wilson, who is preparing a dinner party. He makes small talk and drinks red wine while trying to figure out his next move, and how to keep his lies from being found out. When the radio news makes an announcement about John, he angrily shushes Warwick, revealing himself. John intends to kill Warwick, and tells him so, also forcing him to call his guests to cancel. Suddenly, John keels over; the wine has been drugged, and Warwick is not the person he seems.

When he comes to, John is tied to a chair, and the party is in swing — but all the guests Warwick is interacting with are figments of Warwick’s imagination. Warwick takes a Polaroid of John and reveals a scrapbook of his past dinner parties, each with a murder victim, and a timeline of things Warwick is going to do to him. As the night wears on, John is further terrorized, drugged and incapacitated, and learns various things about Warwick’s strange lifestyle.

John and Warwick play chess, with the prize being John’s freedom; John, who is an excellent player, wins. Warwick lets John go as agreed but taunts him before he can leave, calling him worthless and secondary. John takes one of the swords on display in Warwick’s living room and stabs him with it, but it proves to be a collapsible prop knife, and so Warwick knocks John out. When he regains consciousness again, they are in Warwick’s bathroom, and Warwick cuts John’s throat.

John’s body is left outside with the trash. He wakes up and discovers that most of his injuries are fake; Warwick is a master of movie makeup. Detective Morton arrives at Warwick’s door — Warwick is actually a police lieutenant, who is working John’s robbery. Meanwhile, while waiting, John gets suspicious of Simone, the bank teller he was working with, and discovers she made alternate travel arrangements out of Los Angeles that don’t include him. John locates Simone in a parking garage, taking her switch car and the money, leaving her to be captured by the detectives. Warwick stops John from leaving, and blackmails him for the robbery take, leaving him with only a couple thousand to get past the Mexican border.

A couple of months later, Detective Morton receives a letter from Mexico — it’s a Polaroid from the dinner party of Warwick and John together. A suspicious Morton confronts Warwick, who blows it off, but when Morton persists, Warwick invites Morton to a dinner party.

Pulling an all nighter in front of Colosseum for Breaking Dawn

Tickets for the pre-premiere of the new Twilight movie, The Twilight Saga Breaking Dawn – Part 2, have been released and I got my tickets on first row in the theatre! Which is quite nice as 2 of the actors (Nikki Reed (Rosalie Hale) and Jackson Rathbone (Jasper Hale)) will be present for the screening and give interviews inside the theatre prior to the screening!!

However it took an effort to get those tickets. For all the previous movies I have had tickets for the pre-premiere as well, but during the 4 past years the movies, books – well, the whole franchise – has become utterly famous and popular – hence there were more people wanting tickets this year than any of the previous years. So I decided to join the “loonies” (being one of them I’m ok using that term) “camping” outside the movie theatre to be guaranteed tickets.

All people that arrived prior to midnight last night were signed up on a list that was to be sent to the cinema at midnight and all the people whose names were on the list were guaranteed to get to buy tickets prior to all the other people in line. I arrived well in time and we were 75 people on the list at midnight. A lot of people arrived throughout the night and they had to line up in an actual queue while the 75 of us could sit down and talk.

I had brought hot chocolate, a beach chair with a sheep skin and hot winter clothes to keep me warm. After all, sitting still several hours in temperatures closing down to 0C degrees. I had brought my knitting gear as well and my computer and a few DVD’s to kill a few hours. Each hour there was a check that everyone were present and each 6 hours we got 1 hour off to move around.

The Tent Camp

More campers

In the morning hours more and more people were gathering and joining the line for those that were not on the guarantee list. In the end over 300 people waited in line when the doors opened at 9am.

So, I got my tickets and my friends got their tickets. A few tickets were left for some of those that weren’t in line, but bought their tickets online.

Now, – I just have to be patient for another 3 weeks until the 15th of November for the film to release in theatres :D

We bought a Zoo

Today I hosted a movie night for my friends and we watched the new Cameron Crowe film – We bought a Zoo, with Matt Damon and Scarlet Johansson. This is a true feelgood movie and I liked it a lot (my guests did too!).

Plot:
Recently widowed Benjamin Mee (played by Matt Damon), still grieving his loss, and decides to start life over by buying a large house with a zoo in the back.

He is a bit reluctant to take on a zoo and all of its animals and his brother is very much against the whole idea, however he decides to give it a try when he sees how much his 7-year-old daughter, Rosie, loves the place. However this causes his 14-year-old son, Dylan, to unhappily retreat into his artwork (drawings and paintings which have grown quite macabre since the death of his mother).

The zoo staff, led by head keeper, Kelly, help Benjamin to start renovating the zoo. Benjamin soon runs into financial trouble and the workers’ morale sinks, fearing the property will be sold. Meanwhile, Dylan befriends a young girl named Lily, who has a huge crush on him to which he is completely oblivious. When she tells him that his family might be leaving, he is overjoyed, which hurts her feelings.

Benjamin discovers that his late wife has left him an investment account with instruction to use the money wisely while listening to his heart. While this lifts the zoo workers’ morale, Dylan is unhappy about having to stay. He confronts his father, and a heated argument ensues. They reconcile the next morning, and Dylan admits he misses Lily. Benjamin gives his son advice on reconciling with her.

Prior to the zoo’s grand opening, the facility passes a very stringent inspection, and Dylan, following his father’s advice, confesses to Lily that he loves her and she forgives him.

The worst rainstorm in over 100 years threatens to wash out the zoo’s grand opening, and although the weather clears in time, they are disappointed when no visitors arrive. They soon discover that a fallen tree has blocked the access road, leaving visitors unsure if the zoo is open. Eventually, the zoo is well received by the community. Kelly admits to Benjamin that she has a crush on him but, “can’t get a handle on it.” She kisses him, telling him maybe they can do that again on the New Year eve. Benjamin replies by kissing her and telling her that he is looking forward to New Year’s Eve.

At the end, Benjamin takes his children to where he met their mother, explaining that it was the point in both of their lives where they became a “possibility”. He takes them through that day’s encounter, where Benjamin worked up the nerve to talk to his future wife with “20 seconds of courage,” asking her why such an amazing woman would talk to someone like him. His wife responds, “Why not?”, echoing the reason why Benjamin bought the zoo in the first place.
