We saw "The Reef" last night, a light diversion. "Jaws" it ain't, but filled the time before SNL.
I caught the last minute or two of SNL. Forgot Mick Jagger was on. Would liked to have seen it.

I was going to go to bed, until I switched channels & saw Citizen Kane was on. Stayed up after 3 AM, but had to see it one more time. Rosebud. :) Made me want to visit the Hearst castle again. The one time we went, there was a power outage. The castle was still magnificent. Watched Mildred Pierce a few days ago, as well.

I almost forgot, a couple nights ago we watched "Jack and Jill." I had heard so many bad things about it, and as much as I love Adam Sandler, I am always a little leery of his new movies, so I wasn't looking forward to it. I LOVED it! Stupid as all get out, but so funny!

Both movies were top notch in my book! Enjoy!

What is "Redbox"? I get email from them that is obviously meant for someone else.

I'm not a huge baseball fan and I liked that movie! It was a good story and well told.

That's good. I just didn't think it would interest non-sports fans. The fallacy of his approach has since been revealed but it was entertaining. Especially since I'm a stat geek and that's the focus of moneyball.

I much prefer watching movies about sports rather than the sport itself. As long as the story is done well. Movie Geek here...
