Only parts of it. I am hoping it is going to come onto cable again so I can record it this time.

I also saw "Cranford" when it was on PBS back in May and enjoyed it! Here's the website:

You Got Mail. I love this movie, Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks are perfect together and I love her little book store, it looks like I could spend some time there easily.

Watched Max Payne it was OK a little over the top. Saw Madagascar 2 it was funny about as good as the original.

3.10 to Yuma - the recent remake. Thought it was a little bit slow, but nice to see a movie that took its time to develop the characters, and Messrs Crowe and Bale were very cool.

Also had some pure popcorn the other day in the shape of the first Lara Croft movie - I'd never seen it and heard how bad it was...anyway it was Ok, very daft and fell apart a bit at the end - I always think it's a cop-out when they start to turn back time so that they can bring back characters who've been killed off - but it's a harmless enough popcorn movie, I thought Angelina was pretty good, and any film that has Daniel Craig in the shower cant' be all bad!

Twilight: of course like all movies from books it cut a lot of stuff but all in all pretty good.

my local PBS station has what they call Cinema 13 on Saturday nights, where they show classic film, uncut and without breaks. Last night's offering was Lifeboat, an old Alfred Hitchcock fim. It was much better than I thought it would be.
