I Am Speechless…

You guys, I don’t even know what to say…recently at the movies we noticed that you don’t put “butter” on your popcorn, you put “Golden Flavored Popcorn Topping” on. I don’t even know what that might be???

Also, Rusha (from Oh, The Places We See) asked, in comments, what movies we saw over the break. We saw (WARNING: all subsequent opinions are personal and may or may not be shared by you):

  • American Hustle (loved loved loved it/Chloe thought there was too much “side boob” (hubby vehemently disagreed)
  • Saving Mr. Banks (cute, but it didn’t hit the mark with me/Chloe thought it was too Disney-fied (sanitized))
  • The Secret Life of Walter Mitty (I loved it)
  • Anchorman 2 (meh)

What hasn’t come to our theater (yet) that we still want to see:

  • The Book Thief (read the book, loved the story)
  • Her
  • August: Osage County (2013)

    You’ve hit on lots of movies I want to see but haven’t: American Hustle (waiting for friends who want to go with us), Saving Mr. Banks, and Walter Mitty. Have seen Catching Fire (Lawrence is fabulous!), Wolf of Wall Street (disgusting excess of sex, drugs, foul language), Book Thief (lovely and well-done!), and The Hobbit (best hair, make-up anywhere!). And that’s just my opinion! Have fun at the movies.

      Thanks for your opinion, Rusha! I soooo agree, Lawrence is fab. So talented and she doesn’t seem to be typecasting herself. Yay! I was wondering about Wolf of Wall Street…hmmmm…big screen or rental? ;oP

    I think there can never be enough boob (side or not). Plus, showing more boob can be good for the wife as well. :) “Golden Flavored Topping” sounds too much like something very disgusting. The reality is far worse. Partially Hydrogenated Soybean Oil, Hydrogenated Soybean Oil, Salt, Lecithin, Natural and Artificial Flavor, TBHQ and Citric Acid added to Protect Flavor, Beta Carotene(color). Anything partially hydrogenated is a cancerous nightmare. TBHQ is toxic in quantities greater than .02% (how much “butter” do people put on their popcorn?). Ick. I don’t do snacks at the movies. Glad you had a good time though!

      LOL! Good take on sideboob. ;oP I know this is strange, but I am not much of a popcorn girl, and when I do have it, I like nutritional yeast sprinkled on it. Strange? I have walked past that machine a gazillion times and never noticed it was not even PRETENDING to be butter. LOL!

      Oh, I really enjoyed the story…and it was such a unique “narrator” the author chose. Please share how you feel after reading it?

      LOL! It is supposed to be butter, but now I think it isn’t even really a food item. I’m planning to make “a movie with Liz” happen in the next month or so (if you have time)…be prepared!

    Mmmmm. Golden flavor. My favorite.
    Also, your “meh” rating for Anchorman is completely wrong. I am disappointed in you. Seven thumbs up for Anchorman.
