Tonight we watched "The Trip". It was awful. Kind of an English version of "Sideways" where two middle aged blokes do little more than drive around the countryside and stop to eat once in awhile. They also do impressions. Non-stop and badly. Every conversation the characters have involves 10 or more minutes of doing impressions.

If you see this one, skip it. You'll thank me later.

I watched "National Treasure" a few days ago. We are watching the 2nd one now.

We went to Red Tails Monday night. For a George Lucas film, the dialogue was weak and I thought that the story could have started with the training that the pilots underwent to become pilots. It was, however, a story that deserved to be told and we opted to go to that instead of the remake of Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy.

Real Steel was the last movie theatre show we saw, loved it!

Last night we watched our Netflix offering, which was The Phantom of the Opera and loved every moment of it. I'd read the book and really was taken by it. The movie just made it come to life. Besides that, it pointed out further that Andrew Lloyd Webber is nothing short of a musical genius. The story is great and, in the end, I wound up crying for the poor Phantom. Great film.

Tonight we watched a 1996 Sandra Bullock film, Two If by Sea. Goofy and nearly pointless movie but great fun and what I would call "mental chewing gum." Sooo silly, but we enjoyed it and had a lot of laughs.

Last night we watched "Red Riding Hood" for the 3rd time since September or October. I told James I think I could watch it every month.

Tonight we saw "Real Steel" at our friends' house. Other than the language (not the worst I have heard, but I hate when they have a kid swearing) it was pretty good.

i was just going to reply that i watched "red riding hood" and thought it was meh, waste of time.

i just couldn't get past the fact they managed to ruin what visually was a really good horror flick with a teenage love story.

a beautifully filmed, acted and scored movie about the life of frida kahol, a mexican surrealist painter. this film, frida, easily makes my top ten all-time favorite movies. i can't wait to read a biography about this artist's life now, but none of them are available in ebook form! :(
