Spent a fun afternoon with Whip It. I fondly remember watching roller derby when I was in JR Hi, usually on the tv just as I got home from school. So watching this movie was a hoot. Very predictable, but I was having too much fun to care.

I saw it last Friday afternoon with my 13 y.o. niece. Very cute and bloody - we had fun watching the film, too. Babe Ruthless and Smashley Simpson!

I watched Ghost tonight for the first time in years. As much as I do enjoy that movie, it's fair to say that the special effects are pretty lame, and Patrick Swayze has some very strange facial expressions! Still well worth watching though.

The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford

A well made film but maybe not the best choice for people who are stressed out and depressed. Certainly not the feel-good movie of the year.

The kids are out of school for Fall break, so we went to see Where the Wild Things Are. We enjoyed it. In fact, it's been like a holiday today, being off work and spending time with the kiddos.

Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines. The less said about the script the better - like going from the sublime to the ridiculous after T2 - but worth watching for the TX. She was my favourite character so suffice it to say the ending did not please me at all.

Saw East is East on E4 last night. Just brilliant! Very evocative of the 70's I remember even though it's from the viewpoint of an intermingled Pakistani family.
