I completely blew my diet this weekend. But that’s ok. Back on the right track today!! Adam had fun Saturday night when we surprised him at his sister’s house. His parents, sister, her boyfriend, and a couple of our friends were all there. Then we all went out to Shoguns for some YUMMY hibachi food! I love getting a great cook that has a funny personality and keeps things entertaining.
The rest of our weekend was pretty lazy. We did end up seeing a movie Sunday. I didn’t think we would at first since there really wasn’t anything new playing that we were interested in. But, then we saw the preview for Columbiana. All the reviews said it was excellent on Fandango so we decided to give it a shot.
A young woman grows up to be a stone-cold assassin after witnessing her parents' murder as a child in Bogota. She works for her uncle as a hitman by day, but her personal time is spent engaging in vigilante murders that she hopes will lead her to her ultimate target - the mobster responsible for her parents' death.

1. Did the trailer/preview give the entire movie away?
Nope! I had no idea it was going to be such a BADASS movie.
2. Is this a MUST see in the theaters or do you wish you had just rented it or is it that bad that you would have to wait for it to be free on TBS?
I think it is definitely a must see! If you don’t want to see it in theaters then rent it when it comes to redbox. It was an EXCELLENT movie. Yes it’s about murder and revenge but it was a great action movie that didn’t have any gore factor to it.
3. Which movie star do you think MADE this movie?
The obvious is Zoe Saldana. She plays the lead actress and is about as badass as it gets for a lead female in that strong role. But for me what stole the show was Amandla Stenberg. She plays the 10yr old version of Zoe’s character Cataleya. This little girl is going to be a big name VERY soon. I didn’t realize who she was until this morning. She is going to be playing Rue in the upcoming book to movie adaption of the Hunger Games. She was amazing in Colombiana and she’s going to be EPIC in Hunger Games.
0%. While it wasn’t a movie with a whole lot of plot and not a lot of surprise you just didn’t know how in the heck she was going to get through this situation. I was really on the edge of my seat.
I’m giving this movie a 9. I don’t know if it’s just that I loved the actresses so much but this is one of my favorite movies of the year. I loved pretty much everything about it!
In other movie news … did you see the sneak peak of Hunger Games on the VMAs last night!!?? It’s LITERALLY just a peak but I’m SOOO excited to finally see Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss. For those that have read the book … Did you hear Rue’s whistle at the end. Gave me goosebumps!
