The Not So Lovely Bones

So today or technically yesterday, (seeing as its after 1 am) was a crazy busy day....but a good one. My hubby called around 8 am and started my day off with a smile. :) I love hearing his voice so much and I'm so thankful to hear from him so much this week. After we talked for awhile I got ready, paid bills and went to work for a few hours. Then it was off to run errands, and home again to clean (vacuuming and dusting my room as well as laundry!! :( Bleehhh I hate doing laundry....I always drag it out as long as Anyways my Besty came over and we headed over to my sisters house and decided to have a fiesta night, complete with ground beef tacos, homemade guacamole, chips, salsa and beans! Let me just say it was delicious and as my friends call me "Lupe" because of my obsession with mexican food, I was happy as a clam. :) So we decided to rent "The Lovely Bones" to watch after dinner. Since its based off a book and had an interesting storyline i figured it would be worth my time. I was WRONG. Not only did this movie seem to last forever but I absolutely HATED the ending. It just sort of leaves you hanging and thinking "Did I really just spend two hours watching this crap?" I won't give anything away but for those of you who haven't seen it or heard of it, its about a 14 year old girl who is murdered by her neighbor in 1973. Her body was never found but the police assumed she was dead. Her spirit is trapped in a sort of limbo, but it seemed more like an acid trip to me. She can't seem to let go of the people in her lives and her family goes through utter and complete turmoil as the result of her disappearance and assumed death.The man who killed her was the biggest CREEP ever and I seriously wanted him to suffer!! Am i a bad person for saying that?!? Lol...Cause honestly the movie made me so mad and I just wanted him to rot in prison and become someones wench!! He sat there and watched the family suffer, and it honestly made me wonder how there can be such psycho people in this world. I know its not based on a true story or anything but still, it gave me the creeps! So anyways the moral of this story is that this movie was a big thumbs down for me... :( I really thought it would be better but i honestly felt like it was a waste of my time. If you are curious, rent it and see for yourself! And if you've already seen it, well then you know what I'm talking about..Lol. Thats all for now...Good night everyone! :)

  1. OMG I read the book (before it was a movie) and HATED it. I felt the same way you do about the movie. And I may be a bad person too because I wanted them to catch the man that killed her and wanted him to suffer as well. Ugh. I won't even bother with the movie. But YAY for talking to your hubs!
