So glad you are fan of Star Wars. I think George Lucas is so tremendous. Did you ever see American Graffiti someone told me he had a part in that movie. So he must have been ac tor before direc tor. Yoda was my favorite character, next to C3PO and R2D2 they seemed to stand out in the first movie so much. Of course the real ac tors were great including Harrison. He does seem to be grateful for what success he has had in his life. Doesn't he seem like he is private person? What you see is what you get with him! He made others movies that were so good too. Witness, another one where he played the some kind of presidential assistant. He doesn't really smile whole lot. Any way, makes me feel good someone remembers the Star Wars. We had so many toys and posters but I think they were worth what we paid for them

I had a pretty good "Movie Sunday" yesterday.

We went to the movies and saw Indiana Jones, which I liked. I believe it stayed true to the brand... unbelievable? Yes... but so were the others and it's basically an action comic anyway. Sometimes it's fun to suspend reality and just have fun.

On the way home we stopped at Redbox and rented Juno. My GF doesn't usually enjoy anything too 'offbeat', but this was just offbeat enough for both of us to enjoy. I like the way they didn't tie the ending up all cute and nice Hollywood-style. I'll probably buy this one for the collection.

DH bought that something to Yuma. I guess next time I feel like popcorn and soda, we'll watch it. He says I'd like it, but we'll see.

DH and I watched Bee Movie Saturday night. Honestly, I have seen much better animated movies than this one. It had its cute moments, but definitely glad it was only a rental opposed to an actual purchase.... I am dying to see Iron Man, though.

Lefse, it is 3:10 to Yuma and we watched it on the weekend. It is really good (if you like old time westerns because even though it is a new movie, that's basically what it is, and runs close to the 1957 original with Glen Ford). It has a lot of shooting and killing but if you can get past that, it is a really good character study and well acted by Christian Bale and Russell Crowe. Let me know what you think once you have seen it.

We watched "Alien vs Predator 2" and "We are Marshall."

Each AVP was different enough that they are kind of hard to compare, but I think I liked the first one better. The second one confused me a little. The nice thing about DVDs is that you can go back to rewatch things for clarification. "We are Marshall" was pretty good.

I am not an Alien or Predator fan so you won't see me watching that one. But I loved "We are Marshall". I am a sucker for those types of stories though - the Kleenex Corporation loves me!

I've always loved that movie, I think it's completely hilarious!
