Right now, I'm watching the Manchurian Candidate. They just drilled into the guy's head, and I'm pretty well grossed out, even though I saw the original several times.

Just finished watching "Good Year" with Russell Crow. It was alright but I wouldn't rent it again.

I grew up in a household of old movie buffs - particularly mystery & horror. In fact, my parents have an entire room of their home devoted to a library of old mystery novels & film books.

That said, it's not surprising that I married a man also interested in old films (which, quite frankly are frequently the only good ones around). So, we have, LITERALLY, hundreds & hundreds & hundreds of DVD's & books about film - particularly mystery & horror. The classic horror - not the moronic slash-&-gore stuff that passes for horror these days. If it's old, &/or classic, & out on DVD, chances are more than excellent I have it - lol!! Sometimes in duplicate - lol!!

I also love good British mysteries, particularly the "Midsomer Murders" series. Well-written, well-acted, & new-age yet old-time (Agatha Christie style) country-house murders. Also the Helen Mirren "Prime Suspect" series.

What I like about them most is that you can watch them over & over (& I have all the ones currently available on DVD) & still catch something different. Very well done.

Went to the theatre and saw 300 (actually paid to get in so we could see it in digital) and then watched Silent Hill last night.

Loved 300. Will own it on DVD. Silent Hill? Well... I canceled the later recording of it on the DVR...

I cant wait to see 300! My friends saw it over the weekend and loved it.

Same here on Silent Hill, not impressed.

dh really wants to see 300. Looks good.

We watched Casino Royal last night. Not a huge amount of action, especially for a Bond movie, good nonetheless!

Sunday we rented Little Miss Sunshine (hers) and Casino Royale (his).

The first was billed as a hilarious comedy and it was not. It was basically a remake of National Lampoon's Vacation with the dead relative and road trip from heck. The only thing missing was the dog.

Casino Royale was a formula Bond flick and as long as you go in with that mindset, you'll enjoy it.
