One of the things I miss about our pre-baby life is going to the movies. I have a hard time sitting on my couch at home watching a rented flick, but I love going to the theater! This weekend weekend Ryan's mom came to babysit and we ventured out for 2 movies in one day. Wild I tell you!
We started with The Last Mountain.
Here is a brief summary-
Bill Haney's ecological documentary The Last Mountain traces the horrific ecological fallout from the practice of mountain-top removal that has been employed throughout West Virginia. The filmmakers show how local communities, with the help of such national figures in ecology as Robert F. Kennedy Jr., stand up to industries that are making decisions harmful to their lives.
This movie really makes you think about the effects your actions have on the environment and other communities. Honestly, I had never thought about what has to happen for me to turn on a light, run my washing machine, use my blow dryer, and all the other things I do that use electricity. The documentary is simply eye-opening.
We then moved on to something a little less serious,
Horrible Bosses is hysterical!
It was a great Saturday afternoon combined with learning and laughing!
