The premise of the whole series is disturbing, it's meant to be. The whole idea behind the Hunger Games is hopefully fantasical.

I was wondering about going to see "The Hunger Games" as there's been so much hoopla about it. I'm not into other world disturbing fantasy. Reality is enough to scare the bejeebers outa me, thank you very much.

I'm waiting for it to come out on DVD. The stories are really good, but yes, the subject matter is disturbing.

Tonight we watched "The Last Brickmaker in America" with Sidney Poitier. Excellent movie (made-for-TV in 2001). I loved it in 2001 and I knew James would love it too, so we bought it on DVD.

I bought and watched "Hugo" with the kids today. This is one of the best flicks I have seen in a while and hope scorcessi got an award for it. It was a great family flick that would appeal to amost any age. Better than I expected.

Not 105", but the wife and I bought an 82" Mitsubishi 3D HD TV last year for our basement rec room (she calls it the "testosterone cave" during football season). We also got Blu-Ray, 3D goggles, surround sound, the whole bit.

There are times I never want to leave the basement.

Having said that, the last movie we watched was "Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow", which has got to be one of the dumbest movies ever made, and the big screen only made it seem even dumber.

Oh I agree, 4me. Both Steve and I really enjoyed going to see it in the theater and I'm glad to hear it translated well in your living room. It's a very entertaining flick for nearly anyone, and worthy of it's five Oscars. Scorsese got the Golden Globe for it but sadly missed out on the Oscar.

I just finished watching "The Way" with Martin Sheen. My eyes are all puffy and I went through a box of Kleenex.

We watched "Water for Elephants" tonight. Really enjoyed it. Rosie was a blast! Of course, not as in-depth as the book, which I loved, but still worth seeing.
