I like the Dark Prince, it's not Dracula but Vlads story through his own eyes during a trial.

The Women, absolutely delightful. Debra messing is funny as usual, Jada Pinket Smith plays an unusual role for herself but great all the same, Meg Ryan is wonderful and all the rest are just as funny.

no, I didn't realize there was another.

today were watching the newer X files and Virgin Territory (14 century florence era about three men courting one young woman) it's got Hayden Christianson, Tim Roth and can't remember the other gentleman, mischa barton plays the young woman. supposed to be a drama/romance/comedy, we'll see though.

The Orphanage, produced by Guillermo del Toro (Pan's Labyrinth).

The DVD cover (and the trailers) made it appear to be a horror movie, but it's not. There are supernatural aspects but it's really a mother-child love story. It's the first supernatural movie I've seen in years that made sense. Everything happened for a reason. No loose ends, no scenes for a BOO! effect, no "What just happened?" It's well acted, beautiful to look at, and the music is perfect.

There was one scene with a bit of gore, a traffic accident, but it's no worse than what we see on CSI. I wouldn't want young kids to watch it, but it'd be okay for teens, and grandma.

"Narnia 2: Prince Caspian" - A bit of a yawn, way too long and I liked the first one better.
