Saw Bridesmaids last night; bit OTT but I enjoyed parts of it. Sad to see Jill Clayburgh looking so ill, just checked on IMDB and it was her last film. The lead actress reminds me so much of Felicity Huffman; she could be her younger sister!

Tangled. Loved it. Now I'm going to start learning the songs (except for I See The Light, which I already knew).

Great movie, huh? I was really surprised to learn the lead male character was voiced (and sang) by the guy who played "Chuck" on that show.

IMDB has a bunch of pics from The Hobbit - I think Martin Freeman looks perfect as Bilbo.

Hubby and I watched Country Strong last night. Did not have the ending I was expecting.

Same here Madeleine, it took me about 20 minutes to decide definitely that it wasn't Felicity Huffman in the lead role... :rolleyes:

Yes. I had no idea he could sing, and so well! My kids are finally starting to appreciate Tangled as much as I do. May have to get the soundtrack. Alan Menken's music is always magical. You almost don't need the movie in the background with AM's score playing.

Went and saw the last Harry Potter today. Cried buckets at two different parts.

Since it was so hot and I wasn't allowed outside because of my asthma, we had movie and book marathons this weekend. One of the movies we watched which was freaky but cool was "The Adjustment Bureau."
