Yes, we were all so young Katie. Hard to believe it was 20 years ago. Seeing the movie made Costner's eulogy of Whitney all the more touching for me. I saw in an interview that he recently tried to watch the movie again and said he had to turn it off after only 10 minutes.
I thought it was a very good movie. Both the endings were so sad.

We enjoyed both movies, very much.

Picked up TTSS this morning, will be watching it later. I'm excited, love the story.

Bluray...I'm not buying another player until this one dies. Then we will consider Bluray. It's bad enough I have Betamax, VHS, Laser Disc and DVD formats all represented in the movies I love!.

We are thinking about going to redbox & pick out a movie. Any suggestions for a scarey movie or maybe a action/thriller movie? Keepin in mind there will be a 13 year old girl watching it too.

You know the BD players will do DVD so you don't loose that.

Of course, without an HD TV it is pointless to have a BD player.

My new one has allows us to stream in movies too (over the built in WiFi).

I know that, it's the only reason I have even considered BluRay. I already have the nicest HDTV.

Silly, that would be bigger than my wall. The 42 inch LED is just fine. Love those Tax Refunds...

We have been sporting a 42" plasma for a few years.

Kathleen remarked I have spoiled her for watching movies... she doesn't like the theater anymore with the plasma and surround sound we have. Less idjots to ruin the movie at home too...

and you can pause it and hit the kitchen and bathroom...important when you are doing silly stuff like a Star Wars Marathon. Almost never go to the theater anymore. Although, we will be going to see The Avengers when it comes out.

I went & saw hunger games with my daughter last weekend. It's her second time seeing it. I found it to be somewhat disturbing.
