I'm home all day, every day, by myself (James is home on weekends), and we can't afford DISH anymore. I can watch some shows on TV, I watch others online. We have about a zillion (ok, a few hundred) DVDs. Most of them were bought "previously viewed" but many we just got good deals on. We have a lot of movies, and a lot of TV shows--we've been stocking up for about 8 years. We also watch movies at our friends' house on our Friday night "date nights."

Saw Megamind in 3D over Thanksgiving with Frank and Kathleen - very cute movie.
Watched The Sorcerer's Apprentice last night - entertaining.

How could I forget! We babysat our friends' kids Saturday afternoon, so we brought Polar Express and watched it with the kids. Then that night we (all but the 6-year-old who was in bed) watched The Sorcerer's Apprentice. We all loved it.

In the 'last one to see' department, last night I watched Ingmar Bergman's "Scenes From a Marriage" (1973). This is one of the things I love about Netflix -- finally seeing movies I've heard about for ages. And BBC productions like "War and Peace" starring a young Anthony Hopkins. Never made it through the book.

Last night we watched The Expendables and Inception.

The first was not as much fun as I hoped, it was just bad.

The second was better than I thought it would be.

We watched 127 Hours last night. Excellent film.
The film is based on a true story about a solo adventurer/hiker who gets his arm caught under a boulder and is trapped there for days.
I remember this incident as it was widely publicized about 5 years ago.

I watched "Changing Lanes" yesterday (Ben Affleck and Samuel L. Jackson). I hadn't seen it since it was in the theaters and had forgotten a lot of it. Great movie!

We put on 127 Hours again this evening because we had people come over who hadn't seen it yet. It was still riveting the second time around.
After that we all watched Secretariat.

Say, roadfix -- was Secretariat as good as the hype? I loved Seabiscuit a couple of years ago and think it will be hard to top.

Agreed, Seabiscuit was a way better film, no comparison.
