Date Night August 6, 2011

Well, we have been doing our date nights pretty regularly and I am enjoying the time we are spending together. Last week, it was a family event as it was my birthday. This week, just Daniel and I went out. We grabbed a bite to eat at Subway, then went to see Rise of the Planet of the Apes.
I loved Planet of the Apes when I was a kid. And who can forget Charlton Heston (“Get your hands off me, you filthy ape!”) And Roddy McDowell made an awesome ape scientist! And then the powerful moment at the end, when we realize that the astronauts have landed on a future earth…knock your socks off moment!

They did a remake of Planet of the Apes in 2001. The less said about that the better…
Today, we went to see Rise of the Planet of the Apes. After all, we need to know how we got to that ending moment in the 1968 version (yes, I know there were four other movies that helped explain that, but let’s forget that for now, okay). This movie is fantastic! The visual presentation is amazing, the story-line believable and interesting and we learn that even when we are trying to do something good, not so good consequences can result. Be sure to be on the lookout for Tom Felton. Be aware of type-casting Tom, could be bad for your career! You can watch this movie without having watched any other Planet of the Apes movies, but if you have seen the old ones…there will be some especially interesting tidbits/moments for you! I absolutely cannot wait to see the next one!
I highly recommend this movie and I give it 5 bananas!
We ended our night with a visit to Sweet Frog – now that is a hopping and yummy place! Ran into Todd and Lily Foster while we were there and saw the Harkins family leaving…
