Maybe I should have watched it all the way through, but had to go to YouTube and watch clips from old Broadway musicals to get the dreary taste of it out of my head.......
Oh Karen you really need to watch it all the way through. It has a twist ending that makes the rest of the movie all fall into place. Things are not as they appear.

OK, GB, I'll try. I appreciate the advice - thought I might be missing something.

Your opinion may still be the same at the end of the movie, but at least you are armed with a little more knowledge now. Hopefully though you will really like it or at least appreciate it by the end.

The Darjeeling Limited. I enjoyed it very much, I always find Owen Wilson goofily amusing, but in this role he showed more depth than usual, the hidden, deep rooted pain and pining behind his silly antics, perhaps it was because I was aware what happened in his real life after the filming though... Adrien Brody was brilliant, too, he was a new face to me but this could be his major breakthrough. He was slinkily hilarious.

My mom and I watched PS I Love You a few nights ago. It was a sweet movie - definitely a chick flick.

Saw Iron Man this week - fun movie, one of the better comic book adaptations, I'd say.

I went to the midnight showing of Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skulls. I'm sad to say it was not as good as I had hoped. I'm all for suspending my disbelief during the stunts in Indy movies, but this one was almost painful at points. It wasn't bad, but there were many glaring errors and deviations from the first films that spoiled my enjoyment somewhat. I still stand by my dislike of What's-his-name LaBoof.

I am sorry to hear that DrThunder. That is exactly what I was afraid of. I saw a preview and it looked like they had stunts just for the sake of having stunts.

DH and I saw Prince Caspian this weekend...it was pretty awesome, probably better than the first one. People complained that it was too violent for children...but as a child I read the books and they're pretty violent. I wouldn't take a kid under 10 to see it...unless you know your kid can handle it...

We rented The Final Season a couple days ago. It was pretty good..

Last night we rented Mad Money, it was pretty good too.
