Double Feature at the Aukschun House

Saw Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and Night at the Museum, Battle of the Smithsonian on DVD this past week and either I'm becoming my old pal, Dave Thomas who finds something to like in every movie he sees, . . . or they're both good.

The first, Eternal Sunshine, considered by some to be one of the top ten movies of the past decade, had a little rugged language and some rough but quite likable characters in Jim Carrey and Kate Winslet as lovers who choose a service to obliterate each other from their memories.  The story is good and it's well put together.  It's definitely not a movie I'd recommend to everyone, but to those who like the esoteric and weird, give it a try.  I really liked it.

Night at the Museum we had to watch twice because Ali and Soph liked it lots.  It had good stuff in it.  Funny lines, battles between warriors of all ages and a really cool bouncing balloon dog.  Amy Adams is a truly compelling Amelia Earhart and Ben Stiller, saves the day as the night watchman.  Maybe not twice, but once is good.
