My son is on camp so I can have a social life! Monday night I went and saw Time Traveller's Wife and last night it was New Moon. Tonight I am out for dinner.

Just finished watching Tom Hanks and "Angels and Demons"....Good looking cast and a entertaining film.....But...It was like visiting Rome on fast forward.....Non stop car chases through the Eternal City, the Vatican and it's beautiful Cathedrals.........The book was a decent DB read and it helped to have read it before the seeing the film.....

Finally did finish The Women from 1939. I can see why it's a classic, and what a cast!

I enjoyed the remake, but I understand why the critics didn't like it. Rather fluffy compared to the original.

Watching fluffy Xmas movies. Trading Places, then Home Alone (sorry!) and then Wallace and Gromit - A Grand Day Out, The Wrong Trousers and A Close Shave. Just sheer genius!

Agreed on Wallace and Gromit! :) I just found a series of 10 Wallace and Gromit shorts that I'd never seen on hulu.com. Does that site work in the UK? Here's the link if so.

Anna, the link doesn't work, but I have these anyway as a bonus on my Curse of the Were Rabbit disc. I think my favourite is the autochef, but they're all a scream. I need to get hold of the Sean the Sheep material next. This incomplete clip is hysterical. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Xjt55q_XfM&feature=related

That is my husband's FAVORITE Sean the Sheep episode! He and I were on the floor the first time we saw it. I think the episodes have been released to DVD now, at least in the US--I found them at our local library last year.

I loved Curse of the Were Rabbit, too. In ten years of marriage that's the only movie we've paid to see in the theaters. We go for the quality. ;)

Home Alone (sorry!)

Nothing to be sorry about. Thats probably my favorite Christmas movie (after The Grinch and Charlie Browns Christmas).

Eagerly awaiting two new movies next weekend: The Frog Princess and Up in the Air.

Just finished watching Turner Classic Movie channel....The 1986 "84 Charing Cross Road".....I forgot how wonderful this movie was and still is....Old fashioned letter/correspondence(sadly a lost art) and the love of rare books....Anthony Hopkins, Anne Bancroft and Judi Dench are superb and are assisted by a great cast....So many touching and moving scenes drive this film....Hope you all get chance to a redux or if you haven't seen it, I highly recommend it....Alas! now I want to go to London Towne
