I've watched three movies in the last week. Very unusual for us.

1. Watched Forrest Gump on tape. Still a great movie.

2. Rented and watched K-PAX with Kevin Spacey. Uhh... Well shot movie. Wonderful to watch, but... Watching Spacey eat a bananna peel and all, that was cool, but... It's as if there wasn't enough mystery in it. Everybody pretty quickly believed he was an alien.

It was the first movie in a long time that we watched straight through and didn't divide up into two nights. But...

3. Master of Disguise with Dana Carvey. My kids have seen the "Turtle, turtle" previews and have thought it looked really funny. Danelle wanted me to preview it over lunch to see if the kids could watch it. There are some parts that aren't perfect for kids, but they aren't going to harm them overly either. The problem with this movie is that it is absolutely terrible. IMDB rates it in the bottom 100 movies of all time! I hate it for Carvey. He is funny and he tried to make a movie that the family could watch together. But it is terrible.

Time to put Gladiator back in.

Update: My five year old is loving Master of Disguise as we speak.
