I was lucky enough to see 8 films in one weekend recently at the Telluride Film Festival! My favorite, which has not been publicly released yet, was called "Pirate for the Sea", which is about ocean life activist Paul Watson, and his interventions with Japanese whaling and shark finning operations. It was on the extreme side, but I highly recommend watching it when it comes out.

that film sounds interesting, Sav. Right now I'm watching 'Witness For The Prosecution' 1957, Billy Wilder film. Tyron Powers & Charles Laughton. Funny, dry humor with drama.

Last night - kids and I watched "The Breakfast Club", then started to watch "Nanny McPhee". It was 9pm and I was falling asleep, my youngest had already fallen asleep so I told the girls I had to go to bed. They stayed up but I'm not sure if they finished watching it. We'll watch it later today when I get home from work. :-)

Ace Ventura Pet Detective. DH bought it for my DS, and I happened to be in the room whilst it was on. I've seen it before and it's kinda funny, and a little silly as well (in a nice way), but overall a good laugh.

We watched "Once" just the other day. What a precious gem of the film, it had been a long time encountering a film that touched me so profoundly. The ending was a bit sad but all the more poignant. The music was absolutely beautiful too, the director made a right decision in using a pair of professional musicians instead of actors, and they both delivered a remarkably powerful performance.

We started to watch Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy last night but it was too late and I fell asleep. I have listened to the audio book while driving back and forth to Montreal and really enjoyed it.

So did I. There was nothing really new on cable last night so I watched bits and pieces of this film. I've seen this film twice before on tv.
