I got HBO added back to our cable tier so I could watch that movie, having read the book. Will probably keep it for a while since Game of Thrones will soon be back.

We just watched "The Big Year," with Steve Martin, Jack Black, and Owen Wilson. It was an excellent movie, and I would highly recommend it. Not at all what I expected with those three! I love all three of them, but when I first heard that they were in it I expected slapstick, lots of language, and all-around silliness. It was very funny, in a nicely subdued way. It had very touching moments. There were times you wanted to grab one of them through the screen and shake some sense into him. Also, there were lots of great shots of birds (The movie is about three very competitive "birders.").

We watched TinTin, Shrek enjoyed it more than I did. The animation is extraordinary, you forget you are watching a "cartoon." It was good, enjoyable but, since I have never read any TinTin stories, I was not as enamored of the characters.

Last night we watched George Clooney's O Brother, Where Art Thou? I'd heard of it but never seen it. How funny!!!! It was so silly and fun and showed a side of Clooney that I wouldn't have imagined. Plus, the music was great.

Yes, it was. I enjoyed every second of it. It never dragged, not a bit.

That's one of my favorite movies. Deffinitely in my top ten.
I watched a Norwegian movie called Elling. It is about t
wo mentally challenged friends who become roommates and try to create a life for themselves outside the confining but protective walls of the hospital. It is funny and touching.

It took me longer than it should have to realize it was Homers Odyssey.

The Norwegian themed film sounds very interesting. Thank you for posting it.
