I watched an old James Spader movie called The Secretary last night. I liked the twisted nature of the film.
I like most of his films. Another one of his twisted films I really loved was Crash (1996) which I have seen about 5 times.

I can't wait to see that!

We watched "The Christmas Shoes" yesterday. My mom died 10 years ago yesterday, and the first time I ever heard the song "The Christmas Shoes" was in the car, on the way to the airport the day after her funeral. It has always been very sentimental to me ever since. We watch the movie every year now too.

Have you seen "Two Days in the Valley"? James Spader, ice-cold - that he does so well. I'll have to add Crash to my Netflix queue.

Last night I put my latest Netflick in - was victim of one of their rare misfires. It should have been Emma Thompson in "Wit" but was a Chris Rock HBO special even though the DVD disc was labeled "Wit." Yikes. He's a funny guy, but I'm too old for that, uh, stuff.

Yes, I've seen most of his films, including Two Days. He's good.

I forgot to add that last night we saw the "best" (according to most people polled) version of "A Christmas Carol," the one with Alastair Sim. It came with the original B&W and colorized. James asked which one, and I definitely chose B&W. I said that I might be willing to watch the colorized one later, but I'm not a big fan of colorized B&W movies. I like other versions of "A Christmas Carol," but Alastair Sim is, in James' and my opinion, the best Scrooge ever.

Inception. It was probably the most confusing movie I have ever seen and the end made me want to throw things.

So you loved it?

I thought it was better than I feared it would be.
