Okay...it's been a long time since I've posted on my blog but life has been really busy. Husband has been sick so much, in and out of the hospital, conferences at school, graduations,soccer, soccer, and more soccer...and too many recitals to name.
I just HAD to post today though. I've been playing the M&M's Movie cash game for a while and I won quite a few times, so I was saving up to take the entire family to go see Kung Fu Panda 2. We wound up going to the AMC Theater in Waldorf. I don't go the movies much just because you can typically control your own kids but you never really know how others (young and old) are going to act. And the movies are too expensive to pay for and not get to enjoy the movie, ya know? Okay, if I was doing a review on the Theater it would get a thumbs up from me. They were so very helpful with everything, and let me use my Movie Cash at the concession stand as well. That really rocked! The only thing we didn't enjoy was sticking to the floors of the theater, but that's pretty standard I guess for any movie theater. Onto the Movie...I LOVED Kung Fu Panda, and I'm a huge Jack Black fan. I also Love Lucy Lui, Angelina Jolie, Jackie Chan, and the rest of the cast...there are so many stars in this movie. Once you have a hit it's typically hard to follow with another that is just as good. Not for DreamWorks, this was a FANTASTIC movie, for the young and old. It's filled with lots for the kiddos and lots for the grown ups too! And this was my first experience with a 3-d Movie. I didn't think it was such a big deal when I first heard of it, but let me tell you.....IT'S AWESOME, and totally worth the extra $3.00 they tack onto the movie price. They really look like they are coming at you, and it is not like back in the day with the red and blue paper glasses we used to wear to watch what they used to call a 3-d movie.
Just when you think the movie is coming to a close, they show you a little something to let you know that there is going to be a Kung Fu Panda 3!! I was like grrrrr...I wasn't ready to leave, I just wanted to see more. I just LOVE it!!!
