Reviews on the Run

Day # 204 ~ 8 treadmill miles
Occasionally I do look cute.

During my run last evening I finished watching yet another movie.  It is a great way to pass the time and get a little mommy break from the kiddos.  I run with headphones on so that I can escape into the movie and simply put one foot in front of the other.  Easier said than done when watching some movies.

Last night the movie was:
The Final Storm

What Wikipedia says:
Final Storm (source) (working title, The Storm) is a biblical apocalypse thriller film directed by Uwe Boll[1] and written by Canadian screenwriter Tim McGregor.
The plot concerns a mysterious character named Sylas Hendershot (Luke Perry), who takes refuge from a storm in a farm owned by two characters, Tom Grady (Steve Bacic) and Gillian Grady (Lauren Holly). He claims that he should stay and that they should watch after each other. Tom and Gillian, along with their son, soon find that there are more dangerous things than the storm.

I choose this movie because Netflix suggested it.  Also because it was available to view instantly on my computer.  I had high hopes even though the majority of the cast was less than stellar.  (sorry Luke Perry)
Within the first 20 minutes I had already seen the "best" parts of the movie after that it was a down hill slide seemingly into the somewhat lost plot of the movie.
Yeah, what was the plot again?
Since the movie was a complete thumbs way down, I will not bore you with negative criticism about the individual actors.  I felt the lack of story line was the biggest problem with the movie.
If you use Netflix I recommend you click ignore if this title shows up under your suggestions.

There is even a Facebook page for fans HERE
It has 26 as of this posting.  I won't be joining them.

Tonight's run will feature the movie:  Below.

  1. Sorry your movie pick wasn't so good :( I like popping in a dvd and run with my mp3 player while on the dreadmill. Something for the eyes and something for the ears. Makes it all bearable.

  2. YAY for treadmill miles.

    YOU ALWAYS look cute.

  3. you often look cute :)

    bummer that the movie wasn't the greatest. it sounds like it should have been a winner!

  4. I hate wasting money on bad movies almost as much as I hate wasting my time on a bad book.

    You ALWAYS look cute...whatcha talking about?

  5. i like watchign movies/tv when working out. it makes the time go by faster.

    i love that yellow shirt on u~

  6. During my loooong treadmill run on the weekend, I was thinking how nice it would be to have a movie to watch, rather than the boring news channels that were playing on the gym TV's (without sound).

    One of these days I'll need a treadmill in the basement with a TV/DVD player all set up. :)

  7. Well, you gave it a chance, right? hope the next selection is better!

  8. Ugh, too bad your movie wasn't great. I'll have to see if I can set up hubby's laptop in the gym and watch something while I run. Last night I did 8 miles staring at the clock and trying to play mind games. B-O-R-I-N-G!

  9. i've never thought about watching scary movies while running... maybe that would make me faster. :)

  10. I can't believe I missed telling you congrats and good job at 200 days! The sentiment is still the same at what 204 now....you are seriously an inspiration. I bet to you this is just the way of everyday life. Love it! It seems like a HUGE deal from this perspective :)

  12. Shelly - sorry I added an e to your name - so I deleted the previous post. Anyway- check out the rottentomatoes website for movie reviews.

    We use it all the time.

  13. Hahah....I won't be joining the FB fan page either, I think!! :) I seriously need to learn how to hook up my computer near my treadmill to watch movies...my TV in the treadmill room is so old, you can't even add a DVD player to it - sad, huh So I'm stuck with whatever crap is on TV...bleh!!

    Oh, and can you please email me your mailing address for the blog fest gift exchange? Thanks bunches in advance!!! :)

  14. You always look cute when you run! I don't watch movies when I run, but totally should...I would have to download to the Ipod then hook it up to the treadmill at work!
