Mad Money and Young Guns.

MM was funny.

YG was unimpressive. Really made Billy the Kid seem like a wacko. I don't know that he wasn't, but I didn't find Emilio Estevez convincing in the role. I was also disappointed to find that the song "Blaze of Glory" wasn't in the movie. Must be in a different film.

Blaze of Glory is in the second YG film, although I don't remember it being used very much, probably only over the credits! And if you look very carefully, you might get a brief glimpse of Jon bon Jovi before he gets killed off!

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.


Yeah, I got that impression from another review I read. Julia was also 90, so Julie would probably seem like a young whipper snapper to her. Sad she died 2 days before her birthday!

Have been to two movies in two weeks after seeing none for most of the year! (Must be something to do with having the book finished...)

Saw Bright Star, about John Keats and his romance with Fanny Brawne. Although it focuses on the romance rather than the poetry, thought it was great.

Then this past weekend, went to see Pirate Radio. Hilarious.

Dunno what next. Want to see the Colin Firth film, also Lovely Bones. Am going to another film with a friend on Thursday eve.

Sandra got nominated for a Golden Globe for that in the Comedy/Musical category and "Blind Side" in the Drama cat.

I want to see "BS".
