My family and I are movie addicts. When in doubt, anyone who knows us, knows you can get us a gift card to Harkin's Theaters for any occasion. We prefer Harkins over AMC because Harkin's has souvenir cups which you buy at the beginning of the year and can refill for the entire year for $1.00. That's it. $1.00 to refill a 32oz cup. Pretty awesome right? And if you're a super big dork, like we are, you can buy a Harkin's t-shirt for $20, at the beginning of the year, and if you wear it to the theater you get a free popcorn pass. The pass is excellent for one person, or for $1.00 (that's right just $1.00) you can upgrade to a large popcorn, which can be split between you and your teenage daughter. Unfortunately for most of you, Harkins is only the southwest. Arizona, Colorado, California, Oklahoma and Texas. If you have one near you and you haven't checked it out, you should.

Okay, so on to bigger and better things. I DVR'd the Oscars and have yet to watch them but I understand Alec Baldwin and Steve Martin were awesome. Did you watch? What did you think of the two of them hosting?

So, without having watched the Academy Awards, my favorite movies of last year were The Blind Side (loved Sandra Bullock and Tim McGraw); Boondock Saints II All Saints Day (did you see the first one? Must see movies!); Fast and Furious (I thought Vin Diesel did an excellent job with this sequel, it was the best one made) and Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince (I cannot wait for the final two movies, SO EXCITED!!!). Of course I saw a lot of movies last year, but these are the favorites that stand out in my mind.

So spill. What were your favorite movies of 2009 and why?

Inquiring minds and all that....


  1. Sheesh - I don't get to the movies often though I DID take my daughter to see Avatar and we both loved it. I tend to be more forgiving of movies than books though so I don't make a good critic :)

  2. Hey Ban. We love the movies. For me, reading/listening to a book is just like going to the movies. I didn't go see Avatar, but I heard it was really good. I'll probably get it on Netflix when it's available.
