gone girl (the movie) and other things

Brian and I watched this movie last night. I was really looking forward to seeing it, but I found it to be a tad disappointing. I think it was because I loved the unexpected twists of the book and since I already knew what was going to happen, it wasn’t as engaging. Also, the “diary” portions of the story were better in the book than in the movie (but I guess this is a no-brainer since they are written). Overall, I think they did a good job with it, but the book was definitely better.

My rating: 3.5/5

In other news, the three of us went out for dinner at Off the Rak with Carol and Bob (also last night). As always, it was great to see them. Brian and I also wrapped things up at our investment property today so that will be on the market as soon as our realtors can get it listed. The only negative of the weekend is that Jake picked up a stomach virus and was sick all last night. He stayed at a friend’s house Friday night and someone there was sick and as luck would have it… You might want to buy stock in Clorox and Lysol as I have been going through those products at an alarming rate today. Fingers crossed that Brian and I can dodge the bug.
