Husband wanted to go see a movie today so we went and saw Mission Impossible IV. Lots of action and the expected "seat of your pants" moments.

Sherlock Holmes: The Game of Shadows--more explosions, 300-style fights, mind games and a naked Stephen Fry; all dished up with a sense of humor. Bring the popcorn!

Oh, I did want to see that. Finally got around to seeing the first one.
Into battle we ride with Gods by our side
We are strong and not afraid to die
We have an urge to kill and our lust for blood has to be fulfilled
WE´LL FIGHT TILL THE END! And send our enemies straight to Hell!
- "Into Battle"

Etoile sans Lumiere, a 1946 film starring legendary Edith Piaf and the first fillm appearance of her lover at the time, Yves Montand.

Does the plot sound familiar? Famed silent actress cannot sing for talkie musicals, so Piaf dubs the voice.

Bodo the Apostate, a novel set during the reign of Louis the Pious and end of the Carolingian Empire.

Hubby and I attempted to watch Water for Elephants yesterday. I can't handle animal violence of any kind, so we didn't make it past the first hour. I am curious to know what happened in the end so I may look it up.

Watched two more in the Love Comes Softly series. Love Finds a Home and Love Begins. Not bad. Not as good as the early ones, but not bad.

I think they show the Love Comes Softly series over here from time to time, is that the one with Katherine Heigl?

Watched "Bright Star" the other night - Keats and Fanny Brawne. Well made and acted but rather tedious. Great cat though, I think it had the most fun out of all the actors as all it did was play and be cuddled.
