I just watched Gosford Park. I really enjoyed it but I had to have the subtitle's on. There was a lot going on. Then I watched it again with the screenwriter's commentary with Julian Fellowes. I liked hearing how much fun everyone had making this film, and how much they all loved the director Robert Altman.

Tonight we saw "The Happening" and the new "Indiana Jones" movie.

"The Happening" was okay, but I would suggest waiting to rent it on DVD. It is definitely not up to the standards of "Signs" or "Sixth Sense" (also by M. Night Shyamalan), but it had some mild suspense. It actually was quite humorous at times. I started to say it was unintentional humor, but I believe parts were intentional, and others may not have been intended.

We enjoyed the new Indy movie, but it wasn't nearly as good as the others.

I know..........Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman (whom I adore) were superb in The Bucket List weren't they?

Lions for Lambs and then tonight The Shooter. Lions for Lambs was OK, I think Robert Redford tried to tackle too many aspects of the problem instead of focusing in one one more to really get it home, but still a good movie.
The shooter was a great suspense action movie, I really liked it a lot.

National Treasure: Book of Secrets.

I enjoyed it. It was ridiculous and completely unbelievable, but as long as you go in expecting that then it is a fun movie.

Oh Babe, I saw this one years ago and I loved it! As I recall, I bawled my eyes out, too. Thanks for reminding me about it - I'm pulling it out of the video cabinet.
