I think I got The Bucket List today. I might put that or The Mongol in tonight. First I'll scan the channels.

We watched I am Legend last night. I was surprisingly disappointed. Good graphics, but, if I had to watch someone alone, although I really like Will Smith in anything he does, I would rather be watching Cast Away with Tom Hanks.

The Bucket List and College Road Trip. I don't think I will be disappointed with The Bucket List.
I watched about 15 min of I Am Legend the other night and had to make DH find something else when the 5 yr old freaked at the first zombie creature.
Can't blame him. I didn't know what it was about or I woulda made him find a different movie.
Not sure I'll bother watching the rest when DH finishes.......

I haven't seen "Griffin Loves Phoenix" but "The Bucket List" is WONDERFUL! I didn't realize it was a remake of anything. Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman played off of each other perfectly.

My latest movies have been the new Batman one (can't think of the name!) and a few Christmas movies that I recorded on ABC Family and the Hallmark Channel.

We saw Slumdog Millionaire on Sunday - this is going to be on top 10 list for 2008. Great movie, part fantasy, love story and drama.

I saw that last week and I agree, it will be on top.
We are planning on seeing it again this weekend.

Watched the Fifth Element for the second time. I saw it about 10 years ago not long after it had first come out, and didn't leave me much impression, didn't remember much of the film either except for the hair of Gary Oldman and that song sang by Sarah Brightman.
But this time I really enjoyed it. During the past 10 years I became a big fan of Gary Oldman and he surely didn't disappoint, and Chris Tucker was a hoot. In general I especially liked the character developments rarely seen in a sci-fi flick.

^^^ I enjoyed it more the second time around as well.

Last night we watched Revolutionary Road with Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet. They both perform well in this film but the film itself was a dog. Don't waste your money.

I could probably act out parts of the Fifth Element for you... I pretty sure I have seen it over a 100 times.. one of my favs!

I watched a creepy little movie called The Ruins last night. Short, different, and scary!
