"shawshank redemption" is an awsome movie. i re watch it when i ever i see that it is on. so many movies based on stephen king's books are not very good. maybe they don't translate to the screen very well.

We watch "Shawshank Redemption" every now and then too. We finally just bought it. LOL I like the Made-for-TV versions of the movies based on his books more than the theatrical ones. For instance, the M-f-TV version of "The Shining" was way better than the theatrical one (he actually hated the theatrical one and insisted on having more control after that, since it was so different than the book). The M-f-TV version of "'Salem's Lot" was great too (they didn't do a theatrical version of it, I don't think). It just proves that you can have a great suspense movie without filling it full of "f-bombs."

The new TV show in SyFy called Haven is supposed to be based on one of his works.

Watched "Hope Floats" last night...a favorite of mine. Probably watch "Four Christmases" tonite, since I didn't see it this past winter. Waiting on "Trade" from Netflix.

While not a movie we did watch the series finale of The Tudors last night. I was disappointed in the episode. And I think they should continue the series through the children as well (just because Henry died *not a spoiler* doesn't mean the series should be done.)

I think it would be highly interesting to have them continue through, aat least, "Bloody" Mary.

Also watched TruBlood last night.

Extraordinary Measures. I enjoyed it. I'd love to see the True Blood series. I really enjoyed the books. I'm not willing to pay for it though.

I just watched Not the Messiah (He's a Very Naughty Boy). It's not really a movie, but it was on DVD so I thought I'd throw it out there.

It's a choral performance ala Handel's Messiah only based on Monty Python's Life of Brian. The performance featured most of the living Monty Python troupe members (I think Cleese was the only one not there), the BBC Symphony Orchestra and BBC Chorus performing live in a huge concert hall.

If you're a Python fan, it's brilliant. If you're not, I imagine it's a bit like sitting through a piano recital where your kid played first.
