Bourne Again

This is, hands down, the best action movie of the year so far. I know I said that Live Free or Die Hard was my favorite not long ago, but Paul Greengrass (who also directed The Bourne Supremacy and United 93) just plain makes smarter, tougher movies. - review of The Bourne Ultimatum from Movies.com

This past Friday was the DH's and my eleventh anniversary. I didn't mention it here because... when I wrote my blog, I thought the day was Thursday (remember how I got all my days skewed?). I even told the DH that morning, "One more day and we've put up with each other for eleven years." and he said, "Uh, our anniversary is today." My reply? In a completely shocked voice, "IT'S FRIDAY?" and then in a smaller voice, "I thought today was Thursday..."

Anyway...we didn't do anything in Friday because he gets home late AND he plays hockey on Friday night, but we finally managed to get out last night for dinner and a movie.

We saw "The Bourne Ultimatum". This freakin' movie starts, and NEVER slows down. Finding a good point to go potty (and I always seem to have to go at least once) was impossible. You simply didn't have time to even take a breath. Amazing. And I WANT MORE. The DH and I have watched one Bourne movie each week leading up to this -- he hadn't seen the first two -- and I feel a little but lost now that they're over. Matt Damon is truly outstanding in the part -- and when the first movie came out, I seriously questioned the casting director's sanity -- and I hope they decide to continue the franchise. At least, as long as they can continue to do them well.

I haven't read the Bourne books in about twenty years... and I know there are new ones since I read them. I think I may have to go hit the library and read them all again to get my Jason Bourne fix.

======================

Your Love Life is Like Pretty Woman

"I want the fairy tale"

You believe that love is truly blind, unpredictable, and surprising. Two very different people can easily find true love. At least, that is how it will happen when you marry a gorgeous billionaire someday ;-)

Your love style: Sensual and flirty

Your Hollywood Ending Will Be: Surprisingly happy

Congrats on your anniversary! We can never seem to go out on the night "of" either...

I love the Bourne series, and I'm dying for my husband to take a break from shelf-building so we can see it!

Congratulations on your anniversary!

And thanks for the quiz -- how can I resist something that combines movies and romance?

LMAO! Here's what I got:

Your love life is like the Titanic

"Promise me you'll survive. That you won't give up, no matter what happens, no matter how hopeless."

You think that you only really have one true love in your life. And that you better to anything and everything to be with that person.
You tend to be very nostalgic about past loves that didn't work out. There are many secret feelings that you keep to yourself.

Your love style: Deep and emotional

Your Hollywood Ending Will Be: Bittersweet

Thanks for telling us about Bourne Ultimatum...now I have to go and see this movie..better than Die Hard...I'm going to love this movie.

Happy Anniversary!

For the quiz I got Casablanca
"Kiss me. Kiss me as if it were the last time."

For you, love is never finished. If you've loved someone once, you'll always love them. You're an old fashioned romantic... even if your relationships don't end up as romantic as you'd like.

Your love style: Traditional and understated

Your Hollywood Ending Will Be: Complicated and ambiguous

I should be writing but hey I'm thinking of what I'll write next. I'm glad I saw this post. I wish my recent posts were on a sidebar. Will have to figure that out sometime.

Anyhow Happy Belated Anniversary. Our anniversary is in August, too!
That's cute you got your days mixed up - glad your hubby realized it was your anniversary day. LOL

I have to see the new Bourne movie. Soon, I hope!
