i think my wife was from sparta, come to think about it.
Er...I was JOKING, buckytom

I agree with you jpmcgrew---DeNiro is great and I was alone when I watched CapeFear for the first time---the alarm system was immediately activated.
Just watched Julia Roberts in "Erin Brockovich" and enjoyed it the 10th time just as much as the first.

Seen bunches this weekend....

Man of the Year... I loved this movie, not what you would expect.
Hostel... another movie that is not what you expect... aside from the gore, it was very haunting in the sense that when you are in a foreign land, do not go off the beaten path!!!
Texas Chain Saw Massacre: The Beginning... UGH.. don't waste your time!

OMG, I think my husband was Spartan, too! (Except for the abs (sigh)).

I watched Shooter tonight and I liked it a lot. An action packed politcal conspiracy flick, it doesn't drag anywhere and is dual gender friendly. And speaking of rock-hard, chiseled, six-pack abs - Mark Walburg starred in this one.

Yesterday was O Brother Where Art Thou, my favorite Cohen Bro's movie (own it and seen it atleast 5 times now!)

Today was Tsotsi, very powerful and emotional film.

We rarely go to the show but took our 21 yr. old daughter to see Hairspray when she was in town 2 weeks ago. I smiled through the whole thing. It brought bad memories of when I came home from school when I was 10, late 1950's. Actually, I would go to my girlfriend's house, she lived across the street, and we would turn on American Bandstand. It came on at 4 pm everyday. We would dance together in her living room. We lived in Chicago and our dream was to go to Philadelphia on the train when we graduated from 8th grade so that we could appear on AB. (We thought we were so grown up and so cool then!)
