The Women and P.S. I Love You.

Both funny. P.S. was also romantic and heart-breaking. Next I'm getting the original version of TW from the 1930s.

Electra. Style better than content but neither that stunning.
Les proz e les vassals
Souvent entre piez de chevals
Kar ja li coard n’I chasront

'The Brave and the valiant
Are always to be found between the hooves of horses
For never will cowards fall down there.'

the new Star Trek, wow, the visuals are awesome and I never have seen any of the movies or shows so I thought the characters were great.

"Star Trek" is great! I just got it on DVD (bought it), but we're watching it for our Thanksgiving movie.

"Sharz" wrote:The Big Country, with Gregory Peck, 1958. I'm on quest to see all of Gregory Peck's movies, so this was a "must see". Going in, I had a hard time imagining Peck in a western, but I liked it. Not your typical western. It was a nicely nuanced movie, with the bad guys turning out not so bad as originally painted (at least, not all of them); and the good guys, not so good; and the presumed heroine is gradually revealed as shallow and by the end, a woman who orignially looked like a side character gets Peck. Long movie--almost three hours, and it does start to drag just a tad at points, but overall it held my interest. I highly recommend it, particularly if you like classic movies.


This is one of my favourites! I can happily watch Gregory Peck in just about anything, as he's one of the actors who can combine sex and brains and do it very well.

Watched Sita Sings the Blues, a look at the Indian Ramayana, with a modern story mixed in and wonderful animation to boot. A must see.

I will be introducing "Gone With the Wind" to Harmony this weekend! I hope she likes it as much as I do, wish me luck!

I'm watching the DVD of Random Passage, a 6-hour Canadian miniseries set in 19th-century Newfoundland. The books it was based on (by Bernice Morgan) were wonderful. It's been too long for me to remember how closely they're based on the novels, though.

Waiting for The Women from the '30s to show up, we watched Dan in Real Life, which was not as funny as I'd hoped but still pretty good.

In the middle of Charlie Wilson's War. Tom Hanks makes a pretty good Texan.
