I have had such a quality movie kind of week. Following up from The Chipmunks, tonight I watched Disaster Movie, and it pretty much was. There was one funny scene in it, and then they spun that out so that it wasn't funny anymore. The kids loved it though.

I've been balancing you then Diamondlil. Hotel Rwanda for me. Not easy watching but definitely good to be taken out of one's comfort zone now and again.

currently watching The Tudors season 1, wee bit behind. Ronnies not into The Tudors so last night we watched Forgetting Sarah Marshal ad Leatherheads both funny and orignal in their own way. Clooney's dry humor is absilutely right for 1920's.

I haven't seen Leatherheads yet, but parts of it were filmed about 10 miles from my house and then other parts were filmed in the upstate SC area. Lots of folks practically camped out when Clooney was in Anderson so they could get a chance to meet him. I'll make sure I watch it as soon as it's on a movie channel.

I went to see Clooney, Frances McDormand and Brad Pitt in the Cohen brothers' Burn After Reading. It was a quirky and violent movie with some really funny moments. Clooney and Pitt were such clowns! Lots of satire and occasional pathos thread in and out of its patchwork plotline.

"Speed Racer", ridiculous but good, if not a little bit longish.
