"Black Adder" was great, especially the first few seasons, not so much the WWI "Black Adder".

I watched Stardust tonight, and I have to say, I am completely surprised by how much I totally loved it! So great!

On Halloween evening I watched Haunted with Aidan Quinn. It was rather good, reminded me a bit of The Others. I also watched The Gift with Kate Blanchet.

I've actually watched several movies this week since I'm down with a cold and I can't seem to read more then a few lines before kids or coughing spasms take over. Body Snathcers with Gabrielle Anwar, Blade with Stephen Dorf, House on Haunted Hill (the newr one) and one of my favorites that I only get to see everyonce in awhile Rocky Horror Picture Show, Tim Curry in drag is something! Now that Halloween is over it's back to the non-freaky and not so scary movies that my husband perfers.

Yes, I loved Stardust. One of my keeper DVD's!
Watched The Spiderwick Chronicles film last night and rather enjoyed it.

Watching far too much on the current political madness -- and sadly, like a passerby at an accident, I can't look away. But they did have a nifty little bit on the History Channel about the earliest Presidents, and what an eyeopener that was.

I also watched Kadosh yesterday, a contemporary film set in Israel in which two ultra-orthodox sisters have much trouble. One is happily married but her husband who loves her is forced to divorce her and marry another because she has been barren for ten years.

The other married sister is not in love with her husband and is having an affair with another man.

That makes two bleak films I watched yesterday. I detoxed watching football.

Bodo the Apostate, a novel set during the reign of Louis the Pious and end of the Carolingian Empire.

Watched Return to Snowy River last night. What's not to like, Australian outback, horses, a rugged mountain man with a whip! :D
