A TV movie "The Christmas Choir" with Rhea Pearlman. It's a true story about a corporate "Scrooge" type who ends up learning a lot of lessons from a nun and a bunch of homeless men he directs as a choir. I found it very moving.

Just finished watching Bridges of Madison County. It is only about the 8th time I have seen it. Love it. I plan on seeing Marley and Me this week in the theater. Has anyone seen it yet. I did read the book.

I recorded that but haven't seen it yet. It looks good.

We watched "Special". What an amazing movie. It was not your typical Hollywood cookie cutter movie. It was very different and really made you think. It stared Michael Rapaport who did an amazing job. He should have won award after award for this role.

DH and I spent our first Christmas Day together in many years and it was so nice..You all know how much the babies mean to me, but this was like a new adventure...We went out to dinner then plopped in front of the fire and watched the entire God Father movies..yep the whole thing have some ice cream in between..We could have been watching cartoons it was so nice..This is going to become a once a month habit I think

A friend brought over 2 new movies for us to watch after our X'mas dinner.
First we watched Doubt.....about a Catholic priest and an alter boy.
Then we saw The Reader, about a relationship between a young German student and a working class older woman who later in life gets accused of helping the Nazis during the holocaust. This was a good film.
