Movie Reviews

We watched a couple of movies this past weekend. The Boy In the Striped Pajamas and Miracle at Santa Anna.

I thought both were great films. The Boy In the Striped Pajamas was one Mary had been wanting to see. It is also based on a book by the same name. Two little boys become friends during WW2. One is a Jew living in a concentration camp and the other is the camp commander's son. It was a very touching and moving film. Make sure you have tissues ready though. Or if you are like me, a whole box of tissues.

Miracle at Santa Anna is another WW2 movie. More of an action/drama film. I'm not a real big action film fan, but historic action I can deal with. This is one is about the Buffalo Soldiers and a mysterious statue head, and these 4 soldiers journey. I'm not going to give away too much of the film because it would ruin it. But trust me, it was really good.

Is anybody else glad tomorrow is Friday. The weekend is almost here!

Thanks for stopping by my blog yesterday!
I watched the boy in the stripped pajamas a couple of weeks ago for the first time. I feel like a part of me is forever changed since I saw it. Powerful.
I haven't seen the other movie...I'll have to check that one out!
