The Weekend - Wha' Happened?

For what seemed like a quiet weekend, we managed to get a lot done!

First off, we got some much needed yardwork done. As I mentioned in an earlier post, we planted somewhere around 120 tulips - that's about 50 more than we planted last year. We whipped the yard into shape and mulched all our flower beds.

Second, we relaxed with a couple of movies. My quick reviews:
Road to Perdition: I was not prepared to like this movie. I like Tom Hanks and Paul Newman but this looked like a slow, boring film. And it was to a certain degree. It was also a beautiful, well acted movie that's definitely worth watching.

A Mighty Wind: A fan of all of Christopher Guest's "mockumentaries" (Spinal Tap, Waiting for Guffman and Best In Show), I'd been looking forward to seeing this one. It was excellent but perhaps not as good as Best In Show or Waiting for Guffman. Still, even the worst Christopher Guest movie is better than your average film.
