Me too Brenna! I went last week, it was alright but I did find certain parts of it a bit graphic. I've been watching Pan Am this week and it's my new guilty pleasure :D

Toy Story 3. Very good. I like it better than the first two.

Very much enjoyed First Class. Just finished the Rescue Me series last night. I tried to figure out what kept me watching. I don't like rough language, the men act like little boys and the attitudes toward women are soooo misogynistic. They only thing I could come up with, is that the glimpse into the all male world was like watching a train wreck and I couldn't look away. :eek:

It is a lot like watching a train wreck, isn't it? It's fine for a season or two of watching, but I don't think I could watch all 7 seasons. It's not the kind of show I'd pick out for myself, but I've made my husband watch many period pieces and foreign films that have probably bored him to death. The most interesting parts are Leary's conversations with the dead people in his life (and later religious figures). I grew up with brothers in a neighborhood of mostly boys and blue-collar, working class families. Over the years, I've grown inured to the rough language and macho guy way of thinking. My husband has been through confined-space fire fighting training via jobs before, and does report that the fire scenes are actually well done.

My youngest wants me to take her to see Breaking Dawn. I'm not sure I'm up to it, but it's encouraging to know the acting has gotten better (part of me wonders whether I could get away with reading on my cell while she's watching the movie). She's definitely into vampires right now (especially after discovering Buffy on Netflix... she spent most of this summer watching all of the episodes).

I was a big Buffy fan. Haven't got into the most recent vamp trends, except for Being Human (the BBC version, not the SYFY) which also has a werewolf and a ghost.

Ahh Buffy, I was a massive fan when I was a teenager! I really wanted to be Sarah Michelle Geller. I bought the box set of the whole series last year from Ammie when it was on offer, and I watched it all again in a week, really cheered up a set of night shifts for me :)

Watched Ondine with Colin Farrell. Needed subtitles, mumbling in Irish lilts difficult to follow. Ending a bit cliched.
