Got a good reason For taking the easy way out




~Wordless Wednesday







...~end Wordless


A couple of days ago hubby and I had nothing better to do with our time since we finished the Spring Cleaning of the house interior so, we went to see a movie. Now to be honest, I felt all the movies that were at our theaters in town were not worth seeing. I was determined to just wait it out and get them cheap when they are at the Video rentals "previewed" 4- $20! But our son called and said he had gone to see the movie "Untraceable" over the weekend, and that it was really a twisted, spooky, computer thriller! Well, that piqued my interests. We went to see it. Granted, I don't think it's worth the 'big bucks' to see it. But it's one that you probably feel it's more or less 'important' to see for today's times and all the computer hacking and such! It's definitely a thriller. And from the first few minutes into the movie, you're captured. It never slows down. It at times is quite gruesome and very vivid in effects of the human tortures from a computer-whiz-pyscho! Like I said, it's good, it's captivating, it's spooky to realize this kinda thing actually can happen, and more than likely DOES happen! And funny thing is...the 'main' actor --Billy Burke, as I was sitting through the movie, I kept saying to myself, I've seen him before. But where I could not remember. When we got home I emailed our son to tell him we thought the movie was quite good and very thought provoking. Then, I signed out only to find myself at Google searching for the main site of "The Untraceable"....I clicked on the link and that action took me to the official site. There, I find an "Enter" button. Would I click on it? NO WAY!!! I backed out of the site. LOL I wasn't about to 'hit' the button!!!!! And if you've seen the movie, you'll understand!!!!! Wow. Right now, it's gonna be a long time coming before I hit any 'enter' button no matter what site I go to, just 'cause I will remember what happened in this movie.

  9. Thanks for the ship pictures!!! And, yes, do thank your husband for his service. My dad served in WWII, but I don't know the name of the carrier that took him to Germany. I will have to ask!

  12. Anni, you are a brave soul indeed to go see that movie. Scary images have a way of taking root in this pea sized brain of mine and I'm afraid to see that movie. The last movie I watched, regarding sick twisted types was Seven, with Brad Pitt. Man, that one GOT to me. The story-line of the movie you went to see intrigues me but I just can't let myself watch it. Jennifer

  15. Good Morning Anni,
    I love the pictures of the ships. "THANK YOU" for sharing them with us and especially "THANK" your dear hubby for his service. I really appreciate what he has done for us. That movie sounds like a movie my DH would want to see. I don't watch those kind of movies. I don't like the gory type of movies. It's a good thing we have 4 t.v.'s in the house. LOL. We have the one in the living room, the girls each have one in their own rooms, and we have one in our bedroom. So, if DH is watching something I don't like, I just go in our bedroom and watch what I like. I'm sure he will just wait till it comes out on DVD to rent it. Was today the 175 Word Challenge Day? Well, if it is, I just plum forgot about it. It has been a long night. When you have time, come for a visit and you will see why. I'm glad you got your room painted. Don't go overdoing yourself now. Got to take care of the heart. Take care my friend and have a great day. May God Bless You and Yours.

    Love & Hugs,
    Karen H.

  20. Great pictures. My husband was navy too, submarines, served on the USS Gunard.
    As to the movie, I don't think I'll be seeing that I don't need to be afraid of my computer!

  21. Those shots look great to me. Are they originally in black and white?

    ReplyDelete
  22. I agree, please thank your husband for his service to our country. I love battleships - they evoke such a patriotic feeling!

  23. I'll have to look out for that film thanls. I love the warship photos. When did your husband serve? I see the O'Hare subsequently went to the Spanish Navy and was not scrapped until 1992 after 37 years of service.

    Wow all of his vessels had distinguished service records. One of my main reasons for loving the internet is being able to find so much info, including the histories of all three vessels.

    Happy WW

  24. Sounds like Bud's military career was full of destruction! :p I love those old ships... truly!

  27. Anni,

    Love those ships. That is a perfect wordless Wednesday.

    I just posted the 175 word challenge. I hope you give it your approval. The counter in your link counts it as 175 words. Micros*ft Word counts it as 178.

    Enjoyed your post, as always. I certainly wouldn't have wanted to see that movie. Thrillers aren't my style. ;-)

    Blessings for a wonderful, warm day. It is -24 C here today with the windchill and I am freezing.
