We watched "Elephant Walk" with Elizabeth Taylor, Peter Finch, and Dana Andrews over the weekend. I hadn't seen it since I was a teenager, but I still loved it. I appreciated it more now, as an adult. I love old movies!

Oh, I loved that movie, Babe! It is definitely worth watching.

We had 4 free movie tickets left, so we decided to de-stress by going to the movies tonight. We saw "Underworld: The Rise of the Lycans" and "Inkheart." Both were good in their own way.

"Underworld..." is a prequel to explain the beginnings of the Lycans and vampires. It is a very dark movie, of course, but it was well done, I think. The only thing I didn't like was that they did too many super-close-ups during action scenes. It is a good effect if done in small bursts, but not when there are too many. We missed the first 10 minutes, which I hated. Usually I won't go if it has already started, but the next movie didn't start until two hours later and we didn't want to hang around waiting that long.

"Inkheart" was a really good movie, and it is something you could take your kids to. I really don't think most kids under 10 would be interested (although some might), but older kids would. Our actual theater experience during this movie was terrible, but I won't go into that here. (To be continued, in the Venting thread!).

Just finished watching Love in the Afternoon, which is a 1957 movie with Audrey Hepburn and Gary Cooper. What a great film! Turned me into mush at the end. They don't make movies like this any more.

we watched The Bucket List last night. I thought it was pretty good. DH got choked up! He always makes fun of me when I cry at movies and there he was blubbering away! Of course he got a little ribbing but not too much.
