A few years ago I was teaching a class of 8 year olds at a mid-week program. The lesson for the night said to describe what life was like when you were their age. I talked about getting my first record player (what's a record?), bicycle (they were mortifed that it only had one gear and you back peddled to brake!) and so on. But the one that really got to them the most is that we only had 2 television stations and Colour TV was just coming out and we didn't have one until I was 10!

We saw it the other night and loved it. I was amazed at how suspenseful a cartoon could be (the Dumpster scene was "edge of the seat" stuff! LOL).

We watched A Nightmare on Elm Street (the new one) and Repo men.

The first was worse than I worried it might be, but I really enjoyed Repo Men.

We watched "The Other Guys" and it was hilarious. Loved every bit of it... but not for the kids! Me and dh were wondering why it was only rated PG-13.

We bought Toy Story 3 and have played it a couple times for the girls but I haven't actually sat down and watched it. I do remember the scene when Ken is showing Barbie his "closet" and at that moment it became clear to me why those 2 were really made for each other LOL

You have to see it! We don't even have any kids at home and we loved it! There are so many jokes and references for the grown-ups that I'm sure you will really enjoy it.

I really liked the other 2 Toy Story movies so I'm sure I'll like this one too. Same thing with all the Shrek movies. Dh and I also enjoyed Wall-E and How To Train Your Dragon.

I'll just have to wait until it comes out on regular TV. My TV has a super crisp picture, it's an Orion (!) and has a VCR player in it! I can't imagine how I could hook up a DVD player to it. Of course I could play a DVD on my laptop, but the speaker sounds are awful and screechy.

Like I said, I can wait.

Last night was "Two Days in the Valley" - old (1996), but pretty darn good. Good cast, including a gorgeous Charlize Theron, with James Spader as a very cold killer. How I love Netflix's huge catalog. I think it was someone on this thread a while back who recommended "Shoot 'Em Up." That was a hoot!
