I hadn't read the book but the movie was...meh'..

I remember King's "It", part 1, on TV being wonderfully terrifying. Part 2 was totally lame and disappointing.

Will add "Bag of Bones" to my reading list, not movie list!

Thank you Vitauta, all is going fairly well and I'm glad to be back posting. Even though I was only gone a few days it seems like so much longer, lol.

We watch Due Date and Hall Pass last night.

Due Date was bad, but Robert Downey Jr. was, as usual, good.

Hall Pass was MUCH better than I expected, but not a great movie.
