Crazy, Stupid, Love

Tonight I went to go see Crazy, stupid, love.  I LOVED it!  I think this is the perfect movie to go see by yourself.  It gets you thinking and there are some great twists.  It isn't the best date movie -- I think all that talk about love could get awkward.  It also is kinda intense at times, and so a group might prefer a comedy or horror movie.  However, if you want to go to a movie that gets your brain thinking, puts you on an emotional roller coaster, and leaves you feeling satisfied, Crazy, stupid, love might be your movie. 

I was going to swing by a doughnut shop to get a snack to bring in, but decided I needed to run by the Coop to get some wine and dates for a dinner party tomorrow.  While there, I got a pack of freeze dried raspberries and raspberry-lemonade.  The drink was okay...it was fizzy and tasty, but not the most delicious thing ever.  The raspberries were a perfect movie snack.  They were like candy (I prefer sour candy).  They were tart, crunchy, and there was a good amount.

As for the movie, it had an awesome cast.  I love, love, love Julianne Moore.

I also really like Steve Carrell in comedies.  It was nice to see him do a great job pulling off the more serious parts of the movie. 
I wasn't really feeling Ryan Gosling as some sexpot of a guy.  I don't know why, but I have never thought of him as super, super sexy.  However, by the end of the movie, I started to really like him in the role. I wonder why (just kidding).
I think the reason I really started to like him was the interaction between him and Emma Stone was adorable.

Anyway, go check it out if you have been on the fence.  I really liked it...it would also be a great movie to rent and curl up to watch on a rainy day.

Wow I hadn't even heard of this movie. That shows you how out-of-the-loop I am!

I've never had freeze-dried raspberries--they sound like an awesome post-apocolyptic snack! ;-)

I am just obsessed with movies maybe? Haha. I will cover the new movies and you can be the old movie expert :)

I am excited for two movies in the next few months...Abduction and Contagion.
