A classic, Roadie. And not only because it captured the essence of middle aged men

My husband and I just watched Soul surfer last night. Such a great uplifting movie.

Watched both "The Tourist" and "The American" last night. Frankly, IMO, they both sucked deep ocean whale poop.

The American was half in English, half in other languages. I hate subtitles. If I wanted to read a movie, I'd get a book.

The plot for The American was weak, tired. The entire movie would have made a great 30 minute show at about 3am on a work day.

The Tourist? As with "The American", lots of great landscape and just enough acting to call it a movie.

What has happened to the great actors? Was the last generation the end of believable acting? The movies today seem so transparent.

Oh well. Those two were a waste of time. I would have had more fun mowing the grass.

On a 1 to 10 scale, with 10 being the best, both were ones.

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. Reminded me a lot of John Irving books, but is actually a take-off on an F. Scott Fitgerald short story.

I just watched Death Takes A Holiday made in 1934 with Fredric March. Death pays a visit to a family and is intent on entering the human world for three days. This is an oldie but goodie film.

Hi Claire,

I loved that movie. I watch it again about every 6 months. It's on my short list of "Fantastic" movies.
