Abandoned. I think it was Britney Murphy's last film before she passed away.
The film had a dumb plot.

Our last movie was "Memento." A very different kind of movie. One we had to watch carefully (turn your head and you miss something big). I didn't like the language (especially one of the women), but the story was very interesting.

I brought Julie and Julia home from the library yesterday and we watched it last night. Sooo fun and good. Glenn even said it was just as good, or better, than when we originally saw it in the theatre when it came out.
Even though it's a bit of a chick flick, he really enjoyed it. Both times.

He just began to comprehend the magnitude of Julie Powell's undertaking. He commented something to the effect that why couldn't someone cook through a cookbook from the first page to the last. I realized he didn't quite have a grasp of the size of the task.

Then...I went to my cookbook bookcase and showed him the book. Oh, boy, he understood. I told him I thought I'd go what Julie did and he got the goofiest look on his face. I then said, "Nah! I'll just do every other page."

He almost took me seriously.

However, tomorrow night, we're going to have Julia's cream of mushroom soup for dinner. Not exactly on page one, but it's a start.

This is real inspiration. Look what Julia became!

Not a movie, but we watched the First Season of "The Good Life" or "Good Neighbors" in the US, today. I love that show and was having fun remembering watching it the first time. Thanks Dave for letting me know where to find it!

"Terminator Salvation." It was ok, but not great. Not in the same league with the other Terminator movies by a long-shot.

The King's Speech ~ a beautiful movie in every sense, loved it!

A bio-pic, The Life and Death of Peter Sellers, with Geoffrey Rush as Peter Sellers and Emily Watson as his long-suffering wife. John Lithgow popped up as Blake Edwards, who cast Sellers in the Pink Panther movies. Altogether, it left a melancholy feeling. And Mom took it on the chin again as a big reason for Sellers' strange state of mind.
No matter how simple it seems, it's complicated.

"2010 Moby Dick." It was ok. The whale chasing people on dry land was a "bit" of a stretch however. Still entertaining.
