Blue Monday - Knight and Day Review

Welcome. It's Blue Monday! I'm so glad you decided to join in the fun.

To participate: just click here for BLUE MONDAY INSTRUCTIONS.

When you visit other Blue Monday participants, you enjoy the day so much more. Do what you can. I ❤ comments, so please remember to leave one for me!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Blue, is everywhere, so of course, there's some in most any movie. This past Saturday, Johnny and I went to see the newly released film Knight and Day, an action-comedy. We give it a thumbs up, with a caution that you MUST be willing to suspend your disbelief in order to enjoy it. I mean, no one could live through all THAT!

However, today is all about Blue, so please notice that both Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz are dressed in Denim Blue with touches of white, for these scenes on the motorcycle. These first two shots were taken during the running of the bulls in Cadiz, Spain.










Johnny likes action films much more than I do. I liked it, but I thought of it as a comic book come-to-life. That helped me to enjoy it more.

Do you enjoy going to an action-comedy film?


Happy Blue Monday
and Happy 4th of July!

My husband will surely love to see this movie. But we have to wait until it is released on DVD copy on a nearby video-rental store :)

Happy Blue Monday!
Mine is here. Blessings!

Kathy said...

Yeah! I like the way you put it - suspend your belief - but, it's fun to watch sometimes!

LV said...

Occasionally, we all have to have our on spacial time. Looks like you two had a great time at the movies. I have not been in ages. I just could not find one I really liked. In fact, I rarely watch TV. Never much goods news. I spend too much time on the computer, read, work in my yard.

tatess said...

haven't been to a movie for a long time now.
Happy Blue monday Sally!

Fifi Flowers said...

LOVE action comedy!!! Happy Blue MOnday... ENJOY your week!

anne said...

Uh uh, I have seen this in trailer when we watched the Karate Kid and I am sure I would be watching it.. Thanks for this, by the way this is my first time to join the Meme and here's my entry http://www.mjoannafaith.com/2010/06/blue-monday-1-paradise-beach-resort.html thanks

Rinkly Rimes said...

Blue denim! Will it ver go out of fashion?

Eden said...

I will definitely watch this movie.

Happy Blue Monday!

melandria said...

Happy Monday to all.

Jan said...

Yes, blue denim, just right for Blue Monday.

Happy Blue Monday... God Bless

Hi Sally,

What a coincidence! I just went to see it a few hours ago. I really like it but my 20 year old daughter thought it was "cheesy". It was a nice escape. I chose this movie on a whim, had not clue if it was bad or good and had not read one review. There are numerous car chases, a bit of romance, some comedy, exotic scenery, good and bad guys, intrigue, etc...Its a good summer movie, but best of all I went to see it with my daughter!

Anni said...

Happy Blue Monday!

Joyful said...

I love action films so this one is on my list :-)

Cindy (Applestone Cottage) said...

That looks like a lot of fun Sally!
Thanks for the review, I may have to check it out!
Cindy

eileeninmd said...

Blue denim has always been one of my favorites to wear. Looks like a neat movie with lots of action. Happy Blue Monday and thanks for hosting this fun meme.

Regina said...

Wow I just watched it last weekend with my kids.
It was really cool and enjoyable movie.

Happy Monday Sally. Enjoy the lovely week.

" Regina "

xinex said...

Great pics, Sally! I have seen preview and I am waiting for it to be available on Netflix....Christine

hip chick said...

I think this would be more of a movie for Mr. Hip and not so much for me.

Joan said...

There sure has been a lot of hype about this movie on the talk shows. Happy Blue Monday!

Candy said...

Action is good but give this gal a romance old world style. But with a husband and son, action is what we watch most.
Gonna try and get back in the saddle and visit everyone on the list...I hope, I hope...
Blue Monday is a great start to the week, Thanks ;-)

Beverly said...

Thanks for the review. We'll have to put this one on our list.

Happy Blue Monday, dear Sally.

The Paint Splash said...

Haven't seen this one yet. Have a great day. Debbie

BEAR's Mom said...

Hi Sally

it looks like a good one...sitting in the cool air conditioned theater on a hot sultry evening...works for me!!!

~victoria~

The Paint Splash said...

Woops, I didn't mean to post twice. ISorry....

Cindy said...

And it was made up here in MA. I have a hard time watching movies anymore. They seem too violent, too sexual, too mean. I've been sticking to the kids movies, even though someone seems to die in Disney movies, too!
Have a Happy Blue Monday!

happily retired gal said...

I've seen the two of them on talk shows promoting the movie. Happy Blue Monday ;-)
Hugs and blessings,

Coralie Cederna Johnson said...

I don't really like comic action films. In fact, it seems that TV series episodes, that have serious stories, are often presented as comics. Just not my "cup of tea"!
Happy BLUE MONDAY!
Coralie

susan said...

I, like you, go with my husband to appease him. I do like Cameron Diaz--Tom Cruise, not so much. Happy Blue Monday and thanks for letting me come to the party!

Jeanne said...

Good morning my friend, I have missed visiting your blog this past week. When you see my link, the second one is correct. When I went to hit delete for the last link Bil asked me a question and I hit enter instead. So it is all his fault. Don't you just love to blame someone else for your own mistakes. HA!

I want to see this movie very much. We ended up seeing Toy Story Three instead. It was a very cute movie. The grands, as old as they are, wanted to see it and the majority won of course!

I am still a Tom Cruise fan in spite of his 'sometimes' bad press. I do like action films if it isn't blood and guts.

I hope all is well with you Sally.
Hus, Jeanne

PS. Can you talk on Weds? smile.

CailinMarie said...

Oh FUN!
I've been looking forward to this moving - I DO like action films. Big time. And though not a huge Tom Cruise fan this one looks like a lot of fun and I'm perfectly happy to suspend the need for reality ;-)
And they go to Spain! What could be better?

Rajesh said...

Nice choice.

black eyed susans kitchen said...

This movie looks like a lot of fun! I am curious to see the energy between Diaz and Cruise. Have a wonderful week!

linda said...

I'm not a Tom Cruise fan, but it does look like a good movie, so we will be watching it soon.
Happy Monday!

Mrs.Rabe said...

Have a great day!

Happy Blue Monday...

XO,

♥ Kathy said...

I love action comedies :) Happy Blue Monday Sally

Theresa said...

Hey Sally - First time linking up to Blue Monday! I do like comedy-action films and wondered if this one was worth seeing? Going to check out more blues! Thanks for hosting and have a great day!

Darlene said...

We usually enjoy these types of action movies. But, I know what you mean.....there is NO WAY someone could really survive the things they portray.

Hope you have a GREAT Monday.♥

RyHeAnNe said...

It seems it is a good movie, I also love watching action rather than love story.

kbbryant said...

This movie sounds entertaining. I understand what you mean by suspending your disbelief. I found I had to do that to watch the TV series,24, or I continued to think,"that couldn't happen"!

Jingle said...

hello,
Sally,
I linked in...
Thank you for the blue fun!
Happy Blue Monday!

Coloradolady said...

I wondered about this one....did not get too good reviews online, but then you really can not judge a movie by that! I may put this one on the list to see! Have a great Monday!

Gunsside said...

Oh yes, i really like action comedies - maybe i see this one
Happy blue monday ;)

Lorrie said...

Thanks for the review Sally, I tend to be a fan of romantic comedies!

jlshall said...

I do like action films, but I'm not a big Tom Cruise fan. But the ads I've seen for this one do make it look like fun. And that's a very nice red, white and blue color scheme they've got going there.
Happy Blue Monday! from Joy @ Joysweb

onangelwings said...

Happy Blue Monday. I really want to see this movie. Not many these days that I am interested in. Thanks for the pictures.

tinasphotoblog said...

Cool action photos!

Riet said...

Sorryn I don't know the picture. I have to wsee of it here.
Have a nice day Sally

Briarside Lane said...

Good Day Sally!
DD and I are going tomorrow to see this!
Happy Blue Monday! ...Karen

Mary said...

Excellent! Thank you for the review, Sally - I was wondering if this movie is as good as it looks like it is. Happy Blue Monday~

AshTreeCottage said...

Thanks for the movie review. My hubby and Iwill probably like it. I'm joining you for my first Blue Monday. This is a great party for me since I like blue so much. Thanks for the party and for being such a fun hostess!!

Love,
Susan and Bentley
xxoo

DogsMom said...

Not going to run right out and see it. I like Cameron a lot. She does a good job in everything she does.
Tom, on the other hand, doesn't do anything for me. There is something not genuine about him. Not at all like John Travolta.

Dhemz said...

hubby and I can't wait to see this movie...thanks for sharing the movie review Sally....have a good one!

maria said...

I love action-comedy films. I have seen the trailer of this movie.

Happy Blue Monday.

Sandi@ Rose Chintz Cottage said...

Hi Sally,
I haven't seen it and probably won't until it's on TV in the edited version.
I like a romantic comedy and true stories more, but my hubby loves action! I will watch it with him though because I enjoy his company.

Blessings,
Sandi

Shelia said...

Hello, Most Blue Smiling One! Oh, this movie's horn has certainly been tooted the last few weeks. I've seen Tom and Cameron tiny little faces all over the place! :) They are cute though.
Now, I didn't play in that party you mentioned, but I know I went to see everybody's dish spot! I've been dealing with where to put my dishes for sometime now. This little space is not enough, but at least it freed up some of my awful messy little dish places! :)
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Happy Blue Monday Sally!

Grandmother Wren said...

Grampy and I alternate on our film choices. This one looks perfect for him - it may even make up for the evening I chose "Julie and Julia". (now there was a Good Movie! )

Diann said...

I want to see this but, I think I will probalby agree that it will be kind of comic book feel. which is okay for me. LOL

Judi said...

Hi Sally
It sounds like we'll have to rent that one when it comes out in the video stores. Happy Blue Monday.

I like a good comedy and I like a real good action movie...combining the two cannot become too comedy of errors for me. Now I'm very curious to see the movie and see if I too would have to put myself in the frame of mind you were in.

Hope you had a good weekend.

Hi Sally,

It's 9:30pm Seattle pacific time, and I do not see the linky to sign up. Am I missing something? I do have a post with blue in it at

http://www.artsquadgraphics.com/blog/2010/06/27/patio-flowers/

I read an interview with Cameron Diaz and it sure looks like a fun movie.

Mary said...

Happy Blue Monday, Sally. Even though it's Tuesday. I'm glad you enjoyed the movie. Have a great day. Blessings...Mary

Gloria said...

Love your Blog!!! gloria

Hi sally, I'm jumping in a second time to let you know the coleslaw really is wonderful. I do hope you'll try it. Have a great day. Blessings...Mary

salmagundi said...

I'm slow in getting around to comment after taking off a couple of weeks from blogging. Hope you are well and enjoying the summer. Have a joyous 4th. Sally

Charli and me said...

Hi Sally, I don't like action packed movies but I will most likely see this one. when you have sons, and grandsons it cannot be avoided LOL I just saw Iron Man 2 over the weekend with Ryan. I hope you are enjoying summer. For us nothern gals it's half over
already.

thestonerabbit said...

Hello Sally!! I wanted to see that movie last weekend, but decided not to as it didn't get a very good rating in the KC Star....now, the Star also gave Braveheart a Two Star rating a few years ago, so why do I give that paper any credit? I thought Tom looked better in this movie (from the trailers I'd seen) than any of his other recent ones....and now that you gave it the OK, I will be certain to watch it!!

Hope you are feeling OK...and I wish you a great Independence Day!! dana

Shelia said...

Be a sweetie and have a happy 4th,Most Smiling One!

laurie @ bargain hunting said...

Sally, I love the actors in this movie, but I do have a problem with movies that are so impossible to believe that they are silly. I've never even liked James Bond movies! Thanks for the review. I think I'll wait until I can rent it. laurie

Jeanne said...

Good morning Sally, we did go to see this movie yesterday. We loved the action and the actors.

My brother went home yesterday morning. we had a wonderful visit and a big potluck supper with all but one sister attending. I love potluck. It is easy and so good.

I loved talking to you this past Wednesday. I was ready for my brother and his wife when they arrived. The cabin was cleaned and I even had time for a nap. Thank you for calling me.

Have a wonderful fourth of July today my friend.
Love ya, Jeanne

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Hi Sally, Just stopping by to say HELLO and wish you and your family a very Happy 4th of July...

I haven't seen that movie yet... I do like Tom Cruise though...

Hugs,

Yes, I've watched a bit of titbits about Cameron Diaz starring with Tom Cruise. Am not much of a moviegoer and waiting it to be shown in my lounge room screen would suit me fine.

I'll go for the blue denim.

Please help me link my First Blue Monday entry.

Thanks a bunch Sally.

sara said...

I saw this with my daughter and loved it. We told everyone it was like a mission impossible spoof!!!
