"High School Musical", only cause Harm got it on DVD (not from me or mom). Now I'll have to endure 2 and 3 as well. What a good aunt I am!

I can not tell you how many times I have endured those movies, including the soundtrack and Singstar versions of it.

It was certainly no "Grease". I guess I can see why younger people like it but I don't think I would've been a fan of it when I was teen.

The Bourne Ultimatum
Enjoyed it to a degree but a couple of the pursuit scenes were so long I could have gone out for a walk and come back to find them still in progress. Also the rapid fire camera shots actually made me feel queasy in some scenes. Other than that I was rivetted. A fine 3rd film to the series.

Seven Pounds with Will Smith.

He was great, but I'm still not sure what I thought of the movie...

"The Duchess", and yes it was sad. The Duke was a jerk.

Frost/Nixon. A must see. I was in HS during this time and remember certain events, but don't remember these interviews. After watching the movie, I want to get the DVD of the actual interviews now. Now I wonder if Frost could interview Bush to get him to apologize....Anyway, very well done movie.

Found this article with quotes from frost:
http://www.digitalspy.co.uk/movies/a139712/frost-frostnixon-movie-is-fiction.html

But it still looks interesting. Can you explain why it's rated R? Is it the language or do they throw in sex scenes?

Wasn't it great? I was surprised at how compelling it was for a movie about - and mainly consisting of - talking heads.

I suspect the R rating was because of language. There was no sex :p

Greenfingers with Clive Owen and Helen Mirren. A delightful film.
