I hate to make myself sound too old, but I remember a time when they served you food on an airplane, and the movies were the best part of a flight. On a flight back from England I, appropriately, watched Bridget Jones Diary, twice. Time has always passed more quickly with a movie to occupy my mind. That is, until my most recent flights. The movies were so bad that they actually made it seem like time was standing still. The first one was called Company Men and was about a company that kept laying off its employees and their struggles to find work. Seriously depressing. Not what I want to see on my way home from vacation.

On the way home we got this gem:

"Beastly is an edgy teen romance about learning how to see past false surfaces to discover true inner beauty. " Basically it is a modern day rip off of the Beauty and the Beast story. I can't even put into words how painful it was. Rotten Tomatoes gave it a 16% splat. Ouch!

Warning, this is what will happen to you if you are mean to others. Only true love can turn you back to this.

I have learned to deal with the lack of food, the small leg room and even the checked baggage fees, but it is too much to ask to have a decent movie on a five hour flight?

ahhhhhhhhhhhhh!!! AGREED! the movies are TERRIBLE. the last movie I saw was really one of the worst I have ever seen on a plane. I can't even remember what it was called but it was pretty bad.

Also I cannot say it enough but I am SO grateful for everything you did for me/said to me on Saturday!! It meant so much to me and it was totally unexpected to see you right at the bottom of the canyon! It was just the boost I needed though and am so appreciative. Thanks for all of your advice and support...I KNOW it made a difference :)
