We watched our Netflix selection of Murder by Death, which is a silly movie that lampoons 5 of the most recognized mystery/crime detectives in literature. That is, Nick and Nora Charles, Charlie Chan, Miss Marple, Sam Spade, and Hercule Poirot.

It was a blast and the verbal and sight gags were hilarious. There were so many goofy things going on I'm pretty sure we missed a bunch.

One of my all time favorite movies!

I have so many favorites, I could watch them all for the next three years.

Just watched Dream House with Daniel Craig. Had me guessing almost to the end trying to figure it out. Lots of twist and turns to the story.

LOVE the song!! Chris Walken is wonderful!

Last night we saw the newest version of "The Three Musketeers." It was ok but not great. It seemed to be made for teenagers and rather than write much new material it had every old cliche and joke in the book. For instance, the one about being in a battle of wits and being unarmed. Probably all fresh and new to the kids. Some good action scenes.

Last night Glenn and I watched The Sixth Sense. Whoa! What a movie!! Haley Joel Osment did a fantastic job and I can see why the film was so highly praised. Very well done and quite powerful. We loved it.

Watched "The Replacement killers" tonight. I bought it over a year ago and finally unwrapped it. I can't see how it deserved an R rating but it was rated probably 20+ years ago. Tons of guns and the story was predictable.
