It was Matt Damon night on Encore. "Good Will Hunting," "The Bourne Identitiy," and "Casualties of War." I hadn't seen COW and it was very good. The other two, I watch whenever I can.

Dr Horrible's Sing Along Blog. Laughed so hard I almost cried. You can likely find it on youtube. Its only about 40 minutes and worth watching. Neil Patrick Harris has a surprisingly beautiful voice.

Voyage of the Dawn Treader. It was much more enjoyable than the first movie.

The Boy In The Striped Pajamas. Heart-wrenching, emotionally draining, hard to watch. But an excellent movie about the Holocaust. I don't know that a movie has EVER affected me in this way.

A Jane Campion (an Aussie who is one of my favorite directors) film called "Bright Star" about the ill-fated love of the poet John Keats and Fanny Brawne. Very ethereal. Nearly every scene was beautifully set - the kind of shots you see in Merchant/Ivory films.
No matter how simple it seems, it's complicated.

Machete.... it was a guy movie night.
About as good as the title would indicate, even with some big names in it.
Wish I could describe the funniest scene, but it might be a bit graphic.
OK, a pretty bad movie, but maybe Death Watch 2000 Parts 1 & 2, seen just before,
colored my opinion..
Like I said, a guy movie night, LOL

One of the funniest scenes in Machete was the opening scene. That basically set the tone for the entire movie. It was pretty bad, the entire movie that is.
Funny thing is that guy used to be a regular client at our shop when he was still an unknown and doing bit parts in commercials and prison scenes in movies. Despite his mean, gangbanger look, he was one of the nicest, easy going guys I've met.

Last night we watched Skin, based on a true story about the South African Apartheid. Good film.

I watched Powder yesterday (again). Very enjoyable,

If you can't see the bright side of life, polish the dull side.
