Let’s do another movie and show recap, k? I hear a lot of you enjoy them! Only two weeks… count them… TWO, until Catching Fire is in theaters! I’m super ridiculously excited. Are you going to see it in theaters or waiting for DVD? I used to be the wait for it on DVD kind of person but some movies I just really can’t manage to wait because I’m so excited for it. This happens to be one of them. I’m also thinking there’s a chance I might see the next Thor movie in theaters. It looks good!

So, we just watched White House Down the other night. And while I definitely enjoyed Olympus Has Fallen way more, I still really liked this one. They were similar but different. I guess if you don’t have high expectations for the movie, you might like it but if you’re one to over critique movies then maybe not so much.

Also, kind of like how I became totally obsessed with watching Friday Night Lights … I’m now that way with Alias. At least with this series you don’t become obsessed with the characters, more just the show and plot. I wish I could just do a full on Alias marathon but there aren’t enough hours in the day for that. I’d never get anything done!

Have you ever done marathon sessions for shows? Which ones?
