We just finished watching "This Old Cub," a documentary about Ron Santo. It was pretty good. It just makes us sick that he was passed up so many years for the Hall of Fame, and now that he is dead it looks like they might finally do it. Too little, too late.

We took the kids to Gnomeo and Juliet today. We loved it. It was one of the best family movies I have seen in a long time.

The American with George Clooney. Don't bother.

My Name Is Khan.

No kidding, one of the best films I've seen in years. And virtually unknown.

About a Pakistani Muslim immigrant with Asperger's Syndrome, who amazingly finds a wife with a young son from a prior marriage. 9/11 changes everything, sends him on a quest.

This film was engaging, tragic, inspiring and a tear-jerker throughout.

Spousal unit and I just stumbled on it last night surfing streaming video from Netflix (we recently acquired a Roku box, absolutely wonderful, cheap device that lets you stream movies to your TV).

I originally wanted to go see Vidal Sassoon, The Movie this evening at a local arts theater but all shows for this weekend has been sold out.
I'll go next week.

I just earlier watched The Boy In The Striped Pajamas....soooo sad! :(

I have finally figured out how to use Amazon On Demand. They ROCK!! Any curious about it, but a bit unsure? - Try it! Instant streaming, you get your movie for the selected time, &, they have daily "sales". No late fees, &, they have every movie you could imagine at your finger tips....PLUS, NO MONTHLY MEMBERSHIP FEES! You pay to watch what you want to watch. I love it! :)

We watched The Brothers Bloom tonight. I was impressed, pretty good flick. Hadn't even heard of it before I saw it listed in the guide.

Hah! I watched that one yesterday, too, Patty. Free Encore this weekend

And the day before it was Hachi, A Dog's Tale.
That was a tear jerker.
