I watched "Ken" (1964), a Chinese silent movie called "Lao Gong Zhi Ai Qing" (1922) and an American silent about the Japanese called "The Wrath of The Gods" (1914) last night. Yeah, I have free time over the New Year's holiday.

Last movie I watched in the theater was "Body of Lies" -- really, really good film.

Have any of you read the book? And, if so, for those of you who read the book AND saw the movie, did the movie hold true to the book? I'd be interested to know. The book was quite good.

I agree!! I started watching Notebook part way through the movie, but when I saw that Gena Rowlands in it I was hooked. She is one of my favorite actresses.

There is a book? I am heading to my library tomorrow morning! Thanks Katie. When I finish it I will give you my book vs. movie critique.

Sorry, never read the book but the movie was quite well made.

I am SO behind in my movie watching. I love them, but somehow never get around to them any more. Anyway, a friend gave me the dvd of "Why Did I Get Married" -- it's a Tyler Perry movie. We watched it Thursday, and really enjoyed it.

We watched Wall-E yesterday. My son and I both enjoyed it but DH gave up because of the "liberal" global warming theme running through the movie. We just signed up for Netflix and expect our first movie in the mail today. We're getting American Carol. I'll let you know how it is.

Mamma Mia (for the second time), laughed my butt off again. Holy cow is Pierce Brosnan painful to listen to!
