The movie was good. My style of film making.
But no, I did not read the book. A couple of people I know also read the book and told me they liked the book but haven't seen the movie yet.

I too, have read the book. I've heard that you shouldn't see the movie if you like the book. But, I'm a sucker for Mark Whalberg.

I can't sit through another Peter Jackson movie. They're just so darn long. Evidently the man loves his footage so much, that he can't bring himself to edit anything out.

Lovely Bones looks like quite a downer too. I'll grab it from Netflix when it comes out on Blu-ray if for no other reason to see what Stanley Tucci brings to his role.

Aha, now I remember, I saw the trail and loved it and my wife didn't. Need to make to see it later, thanks.

Can't wait to see Shutter Island

I'm looking forward to seeing Shutter Island that is opening this weekend. I think the book was the best book I have ever read. I hope the movie does it justice. If anyone sees it let me know what you think.
