Thats a bit too gruesome for my taste, but I love the old animated version of Legend of Sleepy Hollow, that is just perfect.

No you're not :D

Taking Woodstock - underrated comedy about Woodstock '69. Features Imelda Staunton as a Jewish mother and worth watching for that alone...

I loved Twilight, haven't caught 2012 yet.

Watched "I've Loved You for So Long" today, quite good but a bit long, and I did find it difficult to believe that the female lead spent 15 years in prison for what she did, given the circumstances.

Finally watched The Fountain with Hugh Jackman and Rachel Weisz, which is very cerebral and trippy. Those wanting the plot to connect the dots for them will probably not appreciate it, but I thought it was an interesting meditation on life, death and immortality. It's the sort of film you probably have to be in the mood for to fully appreciate.

"Julie & Julia", good movie, a little longish (at least to me), disappointed that Julia didn't seem to approve of what Julie was doing.

I saw "J & J" in the cinema and also thought it was way too long. Enjoyed it otherwise.

Caught The Shawshank Redemption (again) on TV over the weekend, but I do love it.

Apparently the book gives you more of an idea why this is so. I haven't read it yet, but take a look at the reviews; this lady was about as self centered as they come. She also was very free with cursing on her blog, which probably didn't make a good impression on this elegant elderly woman.
