    Hubby gone for the weekend

    I'm facing the first weekend away from the new hubby. While I'm at home with the dog and an empty house, he's in Tucson, working on a new site (hotels). In reality, he's playing golf and dining with the higher-ups, but he still calls it working.
    Anyone know of some good movies? I think a large tub of popcorn and a good flick will relieve my loneliness . . . or at least I can hope!

    Wow, how newlywed are you? Better get used to it. Here's a belated congratulations. CHEERS !!!!!

    Alien Versus Predator is out. I found this movie to have many parallels to my 11+ years of marital bliss.

    You didn't specify the genre of movie you're intersted in, but a good 'chick flick' is "Nottinghill" (with Hugh Grant and Julia Roberts).....so I'm told.
    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor

    “My Life” is a good one, sad. I would also recommend “Monty Python: Quest for the Holy Grail”, it's planning related .

    Yucky!

    Good chick flicks are really Possesion, Girl with a Pearl Earring, Out of Africa, etc. Hugh Grant movies don't usually classify as 'good' in my book.

    Narrow down what kind of movie you like, and I'm sure you'll get more tips.

    AVP as a parallel to married life ?? Wow - I've got a lot to look forward to!

    I'm really looking for a movie currently showing in a theater (new or dollar). I've seen the others mentioned in the other responses - good ol' Netflix keeps 'em coming. Movies are a splurge for us, so I'm waaayy behind in movie watching.

    Don't know if horror is something you like, but I just watched "Exorcist: The Beginning". I loved it, in a Satanicly possessed gore kind of way!

    If you want a movie that makes you laugh about Bureaucrat's and Bureaucracy, check out BRAZIL. :-P

    He is recently divorced. Take it with a grain of salt.



    And learning to occupy yourself when the hubby is gone is one of the secrets of a successful marriage. I wish I had learned it sooner rather than later. sigh.

    Unfortunately, I have had no time to go to a movie this summer. I think the only one we've been to is Shrek 2 (with the kids). It was pretty decent, for its genre.

    We just got two free tickets to the local cinema, so I need some movie suggestions as well. I was looking forward to Anchorman, but it's been in the theatres so long that I might as well wait for it to come on video.
