Aloha Friday #31

May 9, 2008

Welcome to this week’s edition of Aloha Friday.

In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that we take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So I thought that on Fridays I would take it easy on posting, too. Therefore, I’ll ask a simple question for you to answer. Nothing heavy or too thought-provoking.

If you’d like to participate, just post your own question on your blog and leave your link below. Don’t forget to visit the other participants! It’s a great way to make new bloggy friends!

Today’s question is:

What was the last grown-up movie you’ve seen?

Today my sister and I are going to see Made of Honor thanks to Mom agreeing to watch Baby Bug for a few hours. I can’t even remember the last grown-up movie I’ve seen. I’m so excited! The best part is the buttered popcorn. I don’t know why theater popcorn tastes so good!

Hmmm, last weekend we saw Enchanted, Alvin and the Chipmunks and The Bee Movie but I don’t suppose they count. It would still have to be a pay per view movie as we haven’t been to the theater in months.
Okay, we saw I Am Legend. I don’t really consider that a grown up movie but it definately isn’t a kid’s movie. I had no idea what it was about when I ordered it. I had nightmares!

Desert Songbird said:

Um…I don’t remember! And it has nothing to do with my kids being too young (they’re old enough to leave home alone for a bit now); it has everything to do with being too tired to sit in a movie theater!

The last movie I went to see in a theater was As Good As It Gets with Jack Nicholson and Diane Keaton. I loved it. I used to love going to see movies, but after my son was born I had better things to do…like hang out with him. And now that I have twins it looks like it’ll be a few more years before I go to a theater. I’d fall asleep within 10 minutes if I went now!

Renee said:

last grown up movie in the theater or at home?

Honestly, I’m not too sure about either.

theater: Titanic
home: My Best Friend’s Wedding (rerun a bunch of times)

Yeah, I don’t get out much! I actually prefer kid’s movies. Just checked out again the Harry Potter movies.

The last movie I saw in the theatre was Expelled, with Ben Stein. I really liked it but thought that he didn’t go far enough to prove his point. The second half when he went to the concentration camp was very poignant.

Long time ago. I saw Fahrenheit 911, and was disappointed. I dislike going to the movies, having only the option of overpriced junk food, and those stinkers won’t pause it when I have to pee!

On DVD at home, I last saw Juno - which was really cute, and sad!

My husband just found your site by mistake. Now he’s moaning because I have the computer.

I can’t rember the last film I saw at the cinema. It must have been in black and white it was that long ago.

No, seriously, I took the kids to see Cars, I love any animation film.

My husband and I were given gift certificates to a local movie theater. Just this past Wednesday we used them on a date night to see Made of Honor. The movie was very enjoyable. Sappy, romantic, chick flick but still very enjoyable.

In theatre, I think.. we saw Superman Return or Harry Porter whichever the latest one. But I’m going to go see SATC the Movie when it comes out.

At home, we just saw Alvin and the Chipmonk for the 25th times.. I guess that doesn’t count as an adult movie. Most of the time, I will get my movie and watch it late at night and Mr. Rojo will watch his movie on the iphone. The last movie we watched together at home is ‘I’m Legend’.

We have not been to a movie in the theater in WAY too long. The sad part is I can not remember the last movie that I took out of the library or rented. Wow, I think we need to get out one of these day. Hoping to go and see the Sex in the City movie soon after it comes out.

Last grown up movie in a theatre was 27 dresses. At home I had the “There will be blood ” dvd but only watched the first 15 minutes and turned it off. It’s not my kind of movie.

Movie after movie after movie here. My kids are home sick…A grown up movie?…Tomb Raider yesterday.
We like homemade pop corn better and what we do is just buy the DVD of any movie we want to see. Unless it is one that we have been waiting for as a special event. We rarely get to go out on a date.
We find we can own it for less than the price of going to the theater. We love being able to pause it and answer the kids questions and go potty too :).
I hope you have fun!

I can’t tell you the last adult movie I’ve seen. I honestly just can’t remember, it’s been so long! If I’m to take a stab at it, I’d have to stay probably I am Legend which I spent 90% of the time covering my eyes because it freaked me out. LOL

I honestly can’t remember the last time my hubby and I went to the movies together. Well, it was probably after my daughter was born but I can’t remember what we saw. Every time we plan to go to a movie, we end up doing something a bit more fun like go to dave and busters. At least you can talk, play games, have drinks. haha!

My husband and I are in the middle of watching Pride & Prejudice with Colin Firth. So great! We just finished Karate Kid 2, also. We rented all three Karate Kid movies…it had been at least ten years since we had seen them…such fun to relive the 80s via Karate Kid.

I’m shocked, shocked! at how long it’s been since I’ve been able to stop by. On my blog lines I’ve enjoyed catching up . . .(sorry that your new hair cut didn’t get the awsome attention it deserved!, and loved the peek through picture!) so even though it’s Saturday, a bit late for the aloha friday I’m trying to think of the last grown up movie . . . not counting DVD’s? hmmm . . . . I think we saw “American Ganster”. I can’t even remember where the kids were! LOL

Hi Kailani. Belated Happy Mother’s Day! Sorry wasn’t able to participate. I’ve been very busy because my parents are here for a vacation. I’ll make it up to you soon.

Anyway, the last movie I watched with the family was Iron Man. Looking forward to watching Speed Racer this week.
