Burrito Boyz and "The Last Stand"

This evening, Trish, Gord and I met for supper at Burrito Boyz and then saw The Last Stand.

It was surprising quiet ... maybe the extreme cold was keeping everyone home where it's warm.

Trish doesn't eat meat and ordered a small sweet potato burrito.  She said it was good.

Gord ordered a small chicken burrito ... his was exploding!  He needed to eat it with a fork.

I ordered a small beef burrito and it was delicious!  It was too much so I took some home.

Then we walked to the Scotiabank Theatre to see the movie.

After leaving his LAPD narcotics post following a bungled operation that left him wracked with remorse and regret, Sheriff Ray Owens moved out of Los Angeles and settled into a life fighting what little crime takes place in sleepy border town Sommerton Junction. But that peaceful existence is shattered when Gabriel Cortez, the most notorious, wanted drug kingpin in the western hemisphere, makes a deadly yet spectacular escape from an FBI prisoner convoy. With the help of a fierce band of lawless mercenaries, Cortez begins racing towards the US-Mexico border with a hostage in tow ... straight through Summerton Junction. At first reluctant to become involved, and then counted out because of the perceived ineptitude of his small town force, Owens ultimately rallies his team and takes the matter into his own hands, setting the stage for a classic showdown. (Arnold Schwarzenegger, Forest Whitaker and Johnny Knoxville)

I'm not a big Arnold fan but this looked like it would be a fun movie ... and it was.  I didn't go in with high expectations and I was pleasantly surprised that it was better than I'd expected.  There was lots and lots of action (some of it a bit gory) and it was funny too.

Here we are after the movie ... Trish, me and Gord.

Good for you getting out there in the cold. If I could I'd just stay home till Spring I've developed a strong hate for Winter.

I love Burrito Boyz! The other day, my boyfriend and I got a parking ticket while picking some up. Those damn Toronto parking officers. But totally worth it.
