i don't think i could go see that. it would hit too close to home in a few ways having lost friends that left behind families on 9/11. maybe when it comes out on cable. that way i can take it in bits and pieces.

It's a beautiful story, but - you're right - hard-hitting emotionally.
It's gotten mixed reviews - some critics absolutely hate it. I think it depends on whether you can embrace the character of Oskar - or not. To me, he was believable and an extremely sympathetic character. I was prepared to love this movie, because I loved the book, and thought the movie was a faithful and good interpretation of it. Plus... Tom Hanks.

We're still laughing. Glenn and I just finished watching Grumpy Old Men. Those two guys are a perfect comedy pairing. What a great film! Plus, the out-takes at the end had us on the floor. As if we weren't already there.

Burgess Meredith had us screaming with laughter.

Went to see "Safe House" this weekend. I thought it was pretty good. Alot of action.
I have liked every movie Denzel has been in so I wasnt worried. He was very Denzelish, as can be expected. I also thought Ryan Reynolds did a nice job with his character

TNT was messing up Watchmen too much, so we got our copy and watched it. I really enjoy that movie!

My favorite line of his, 'Crap in one hand and wish in the other and see which one fills up first.'

I was thinking more along the lines of him talking about Hawaii... All of which I cannot quote here.
