Beckett really does white wash his character, but it is a wonderful movie to watch.

[quote=""LCW""]Cool! I didn't know there was a movie about that whole escapade. I'll have to check on the Netflix site and see if they have it.[/quote]

Peter O'Toole is the only actor to play the same character twice and to be nominated for Oscars for both. Henry II in "Becket" and in "The Lion In Winter".

Legally Blonde - brain candy but fun and managed to stay the right side of annoying.

Lakeview Terrace> not great but really made me wonder about my neighbors, afterwards I told my husband you couldn't pay me to live next to a cop, lol.

Pride and Glory> I'm an Edward Norton fan and I like Colin Farrel as a bad guy but it was an eye opener, once again you really don't know those around you. Have to say I really liked this one.

I watched The Pirate King this morning! What a trip down memory lane!

Moliere. It was really enjoyable, giving an imagined insight to what may have happened to him when he disappeared from sight for a while. It cleverly used characters which appear in his plays. I thought the actors were very good, and I really liked the lead actor, (Romain Duris) and the buffoonlike Monsieur Jourdain (Fabrice Luchini). But in fact, I liked all of the actors. Excellent.

This wasn't at the movies, but I watched An Affair To Remember, with Cary Grant and Deborah Carr; what an utterly romantic flick!

"I have dreamed thee too long,
never seen thee or touched thee
but known thee with all of my heart.
Half a prayer, half a song,
thou hast always been with me,
though we have been always apart." Man of LaMancha
