A little weird for June, but I just watched "Santa Clause 3: The Escape Clause."

I loved the first one. The second one was good but not as good as the first. This one was just plain stupid through the first half, then it was ok. Not worth buying, so I'm glad I got it on Starz.

Buck and I watched Serpico a few nights ago. Movie held pretty true to the Peter Maas book, which I practically "ate" when it came out. Al Pacino was perfect in the part.

After seeing the movie I Googled "Serpico." What an interesting man!

Just got our Netflix movie delivery today - The Departed. Probably won't get to it for a few days or maybe a week. We spend a lot of our hot weather evenings out on the front porch.

I went to Ironman a couple weeks ago in the theater. Oh. My. God. Loved it! Loved everything about it!

Sat on a friend's couch a couple afternoons ago and watched "Boondock Saints". Though it was made in 1999 and it was a tad bit bloody for me, it was sublime none-the-less. William Dafoe was spot on; the brothers (Sean Patrick Flanery & Norman Reedus) were fantastic. Their "funny man" friend, played by David Della Rocco, was the perfect wild card to everyone else's serenity. I highly recommend watching it if you haven't already.

I watched He Was a Quiet Man (2007) and thought it was rather disturbing. It was great to see Christian Slater though as he's been doing loads of TV stuff these last few years and not as many movies.

I watched "Reign on Me" the other night and was blown away but the terrific job Adam Sandler did with his character. I am not really an Adam Sandler fan, but his dramatic portrayal of the character whose family was killed on 9/11 was mezmerizing and the story was intense and very interesting.

LC61, it seems that you are a connoisseur of wonderful, classic movies. You have mentioned quite a few of my old favorites lately. I've just been reading The Big Sleep, by the way. Gosh, Raymond Chandler was a good writer - also read The Long Goodbye recently. Good stuff.

I just watched it a couple days ago and felt exactly the same way (except I love Adam Sandler!) I thought Don Cheadle was awesome as well.
