Oh geez I forgot I saw another (or at least part of another movie) this morning. My wife is sick too and was up very early. I woke up at 4:30am and came out to the living room and she was on the couch watching The Devil Wears Prada. I watched it with her, but not from the beginning. It was not really my type of movie, but it wasn't bad either. My wife thought it was decent, but not great.

We saw that not long ago, too... not exactly my kind of film either, and that over the top kitschy cuteness of Miss Princess Diary was a bit too much to take at times, however I really got a kick out of Meryl Streep playing the evil godess (I could see she had a ball doing that, too) and the two supporting roles(Nigel and Emily) were also great, I ended up enjoying it more than I thought I would.

Katie.......

Well as you know or maybe not..It traces the lives of the 5 U.S. Marines and 1 Navy Corpsman that raised the flag on Mt Suribachi.. Iwo Jimo..Feb. 23 1945. The movie deals with their lives immediately after the event and the years following...
3 of the men did not survive that battle...3 did.
I really enjoyed it...I am glad that I went...I would recommend it highly!

As I stated earlier..My father (a marine) was on the island when the Flag was raised...so it had/has special meaning to me!

You and Buck go see it....you will be glad you did!!

We watched "Invincible" last week. Very good, "worth watching" movie, I think. I like when films are based on real people.

We saw Venus Saturday with Peter O'Toole - did not like it - depressing. Same with Notes on a Scandal I agree with Pdswife on that one. I am a baby boomer too (oldest of them born in 1946) and liked Iwo Jima & have yet to see Flags of our Father. I rented Kevin Costner's Guardian and it was lame, but he's still cute. Tonight we have Thirteen Days.

Just remembered we saw Blood Diamond - brutal, but Dicaprio was great.

VeraBlue,
My son and daughter in law saw it and told us it's the best movie they have seen this year - sub-titles - it's not in many theaters here, we will see it for sure.

Pursuit of Happiness and Night at the Museum. Loved them both.
