Movie and Book Reviews

Hope you all had a wonderful 4th of July yesterday! I went with Meg and my sister to go see Toy Story 3, and I thought it was a great movie! Most of the time, I don't think sequels go over so well, but this one was great! The end was really touching, to the extent that I teared up a little bit. I was pleasantly surprised that Totoro made an appearance in the movie. His toothy grin was spot on.

I spent most of today plowing through Dan Brown's The Lost Symbol, which I picked up at the library the other day. I think the short chapters were a smart way to lure the reader in. I kept thinking "Ok, just one more chapter. What? That's it? Ok, how about another one?" I imagine that I'll finish it up in another day or two. I am a little nervous to get to the end because the reviews of the book aren't really that great, but I can't seem to put the book down! I do find it interesting that the story is set in Washington, D.C. and because I am near the city, I recognize many of the references. I even remember seeing the Masonic Temple when I went to Alexandria a few months ago.

Awww, 4-day weekend is overrrr...back to work tomorrow!

I loved the first two Toy Story movies and can't wait to see this one. I love Dan Brown. Haven't read The Lost Symbol yet but I loved Digital Fortress. I liked that better than The DaVinci Code.
