One of my favorite movies. I love the Coen brothers' films. They have a real gift for turning a clever phrase.

I watched Raising Arizona tonight, which was one of their first films. Still makes me laugh every time.

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.").
DW and I watched it a couple of weeks ago. We read the synopsis and weren't quite sure whether it was anything worth watching, but decided to give it a chance. Turned out to be surprisingly good and not at all what I was expecting from those three actors.

Coen brothers rock! I could watch Fargo again and again.

We are watching "Logan's Run" right now. I thought I had remembered most of the movie, but I had forgotten most of it! Still interesting after all these years.

not only was the movie great, but i loved the soundtrack. great, olde timey tunes.

i go apey when i get a chance to see it on cable.


i watched "the rite" this morning. it sent a chill or two up my spine. i guess i identify with it in a wayas i once seriously considered going to a seminary instead if high school.

although, while possesion by the devil was the evil in this movie, i gave up a life in the cloth because a girl i liked in 8th grade grew boobies.

so you see, a similar story....

Wanta see Christopher Walken as an eccentric funeral director in Wales? He has an Einstein-ish hairdo and observes that "fun" is part of the word "funeral." The film is 1992's "Undertaking Betty" with Alred Molina and Brenda Blethyn, plus Naomi Watts as a cute little tart. Charming in its own way. Go, Netflix!

The kids and I watched the James Bond film "A view to a kill". I own them all but this is not one of my favorites. I have not seen it years. I didn't remember just how 80's it was. Christopher Walken was trying to sink the silicon valley with a giant bomb induced earthquake.

Just watched Labyrinth for the umpteenth time, but the first time at a theatre. David Bowie is so good as the goblin king and he looks like he has fun playing him.
