Just saw National Treasure 2: Secrets of the Book. It actually wasn't too bad, now I'm going to have to go find National Treasure 1 to watch that one.

I'm currently watching (& recording on DVD) "The Good Earth" (Paul Muni, Luise Rainer) on the Turner Classic Movies channel. Great film.

Yup - based on the Pearl Buck novel. Really terrific film. Since today is Paul Muni's birthday, Turner Classic Movies has been having an all-day festival of his films starting since 6 this morning. What great stuff. I LOVE Turner Classic Movies. If we got rid of every other satellite channel, we'd still keep this one. Have it on nearly 24/7. Can't wait till next month - they have a terrific lineup of classic horror films in celebration of Halloween!

So we're definitely kindred spirits - lol!!!

Hubby is a HUGE audio/videophile. Has a dedicated "listening room" with over 2,000 CD's in his library. And our DVD collection is well over 1,000 as well. Between those & our book collections, our house is pretty much just a library - lol!! Love classic horror & have nearly all (if not all) the Universal, Hammer, William Castle, Columbia flicks on DVD. You name it & I probably have it - lol!! So between our collection & whatever TCM will be showing next month, we're all set for Halloween. Oh - & I also collect Halloween memorabilia. Have more Halloween stuff than I do for Xmas. Everything from new pieces down to antique collectibles.

We really do need a MUCH bigger house.

oh we do halloween big inside and out. i will post pics in another thread closer to halloween. i used to be a sales rep for a movie distributer. i bought my old stuff right form the merchant but i also have out of print videos from customers and my boss. i'd say with dvd and video we must have around 2,000 movies. they really do take up so much room!! but they are like part of the family

I think the last movie I watched was this weird animated movie called Renaissance. It starred Daniel Craig and was basically a dystopian film noir, kind of slow but cool nonetheless.
