paranormal activity

*possible spoilers*

so we rented Paranormal Activity this weekend after hearing so much about it.   i was definitely not disappointed and that’s saying a lot considering that i LOVE horror movies.  it’s a great suspenseful film that doesn’t rely on heavy gore like so many “horror” movies have seemed to do over the last few years.  the showcasing of seemingly mild activities and events is part of what makes it so eery and frightening.  of course, watching it reminded me of all the activity we’ve experienced in our own home– even right down to finding gifts (?) in the attic.  i’m pretty sure we don’t have any demons though. most of our ghosts seem pretty friendly. 

anyhoo, if you like scary movies and haven’t seen this one yet, i highly recommend it!

the new super mario brothers for the wii

if you’re in to old school nintendo, then you need to try out this game. i PPH’ed the original NES super mario games (well, except for maybe number 2), and i am not at all disappointed by the new wii version.  nintendo did the smart thing and made game play extremely similar to super mario world 3. there are world maps to complete, various games to play along the way, battling in castles for the princess, the warships, etc. it’s great. granted i haven’t gotten terribly far in it yet, but i definitely looking forward to spending more time reliving my “youth,” ha.
