My sister had the brilliant idea of doing a movie WEEKEND, and starting on Friday night with Spidey, and finishing on Sunday with X-Men: Days of Future Past.
Busy weekend, right?
I love Andrew Garfield, and his chemistry with Emma Stone is amazing. It's no wonder they're dating in real life! They're just so cute on screen and off!
Kiri and I got to see Spidey for free because when we saw Captain America: The Winter Soldier, our seats (our AMC theater has reclining leather seats) were broken. We stopped to tell them about it, so they could fix it, and they offered us free tickets. The tickets were good for any show, any time, regular, 3D, IMAX, anything. I'd hoped we could see Spidey in 3D, but it wasn't to be. Oh well. Free show is a free show, right?
The best part of it was where Maleficent had to interact with a very young Aurora, played by Jolie's own daughter, Vivienne, who was the only child that wasn't scared by the eyes, prostetic cheekbones and horns. Love it!
My sister and I also went in "Costume."

It was an interesting story and idea of going back to the past to prevent the present from happening. Hank McCoy/Beast (Nicholas Hoult) even mentions an idea in Quantum Physics about reversing the direction of a stream by throwing rocks in it, and deciding that some things are just meant to happen. Can we really change the past for a new future? It's that whole Bufferfly Effect thing, only done in a better way, a way that's end made me happy. :-)
I ended the weekend making Chocolate Gelato from this recipe on Pinterest, and it's in the ice cream maker now. I wonder if it's too hot and humid right now, though, because I did it for the allotted 45 minutes, and it's still loose, and not ice creamy, or even soft-servy, either. :-/ Might just have to freeze it in the deep freeze tonight. Hopefully it's salvageable. It's a tasty chocolate, though.
How was YOUR weekend?
