Interest in HF: started in childhood with the classics, which, IMHO are HF even if they were contemporary when written.
Favorite HF book: Prince of Foxes, by Samuel Shellabarger
Preferred HF: Currently prefer 1600 and earlier, but I'll read anything that keeps me turning the page.

"The Artist", excellent movie! Jean Dujardin is very appealing!

Slumdog Millionaire. Very good. A bit depressing. Would have helped to have been able to read the subtitles in it, but they were far too small. I suppose on a theater screen they're about the right size.

Abraham Lincoln- Vampire Hunter, which was better than it sounded.
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"

Wasted two plus hours watching People Like Us. Its a plot ripped from the script writing of the Lifetime Channel. The acting was good, and the main character was nice eye candy, but the story really made no sense. If you must see it, wait for DVD

And how and when did Michelle Pfieffer get so old?

First three episodes of Lark Rise to Candleford. Got it based on recommendations from fellow HFOers and was not disappointed. It's a new favorite.

Death at a Funeral, American version. Not bad. I think I liked the original movie better.

The Karate Kid. Misnamed remake. Should have called it The Kung Fu Kid. Nice movie though. Really impressed with Jackie Chan's acting in it. James Horner's score was great, as was the scenery.

I finally got to see 'My Week with Marilyn' and yes Michelle Williams gave an outstanding performance, but I wouldn't deny Meryl her Oscar, there simply should have been two winners that night(it's been done before). I really did not think that I would like it, but Michelle really was able to bring into vivid reality the pathos of Marilyn without making her pathetic.

I came away thinking what a terrible curse is fame, once touched the person becomes addicted and repulsed at the same time.....I wonder who would want to be 'that' famous.

Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom - on TV earlier this evening,and was cut to bits, but still enjoyable, and Harrison was so hunky then! Could have done without the irritating child though.
