The assination of Jessie James.

It was kinda slow, and I didnt finish it, but it was pretty to watch.

I watched Silk last night because of the silk worm smuggling from Japan in 1865 plotline. It sounded like an interesting period adventure story. Not! It was so drawn out and boring. The lead characters were French silk mill investors and had American accents. Even Keira Knightly had a Yank accent instead of a natural Brit one! Awful.

The filming locations used in Italy (not France!) and Japan were beautiful though, so I kept watching this dull drama to the end.

It was based on the novel of the same name by Alessandro Baricco. Has anyone read it?

I just finished watching August Rush, with JRM and Kerri Russell. Lovely movie, beautiful music (JRM sings!)..... I am still drying my eyes.

I saw this too the other day and although I'm not a great fan of JRM, I thought the movie was wonderful, Freddie Highmore is fantastic.

I also saw Atonement and Van Helsing. Hugh Jackman... Sigh!

Drillbit Taylor. If you like the underdog that comes out on top movies you would probably like this one. Had some suprisingly funny scenes.

Watched For Your Consideration the night before last. I didn't much care for it.

I didn't get very far into that movie either, it was a let down.
