I just finished the afternoon off watching two movies. The first, a quirky movie I almost turned off that had a disturbing and depressing twist called "Lovely Still". After that I watched a depressing movie that only grew more and more depressing the longer it continued called "Everybody's Fine".
I may just hunt up "Brian's Song" or "Ol Yeller" to round things out

We went to see Tower Heist last night. It was good.

I went to see Moneyball. I liked the movie but they never even mentioned Sabermetrics, which the book Moneyball was based on.

The Ruling Class, with a very young Peter O'Toole as a paranoid schiz who thought he was God. Very strange movie, what with people breaking into song every now and then. And I had never before heard the British words to "God Save the Queen."

Before that was "Even the Rain," thought-provoking film-within-a-film. The title referred to 15th century Spanish in South America taking their water supply - 'even the rain' - from the indigenous people, as was also happening during the modern-day filming of Columbus in the New World.

I need a fluffy movie next; there must be something light in my Netflix queue.

My husband loves The Ruling Class. He kinda has this thing for old movies about crazy people.

We finally watched "Rango" the other night. I have to say I really liked it. I thought the story was very good (I don't know why, but it reminded me a little of the Mad Max movies) and the animation was top notch.
