I hope you guys enjoy that movie as much as I did (Hachi). It was a local cable movie channel here. I wish I hadn't deleted it and saved it. I'm so used to deleting stuff after I watch it. I hope it comes back on again.

This morning, I watched a moved called Saving Sarah Cain. It's about a high-class journalist from Portland, Oregon. She had a sister and lost contact many years before, because she fell in love with an Amish man and decided to learn their ways and religion. The sister passes away, and Sarah is recognized by PA state that she is the legal guardian of 5 kids.

I thought it was a great movie.

My wife dragged me to "Snow White and the Huntsman" today. Fairy tales are not normally my thing, but this darker version was relatively enjoyable.

Turnabout is fair play, so I plan to drag her to see "Prometheus" next weekend.

I watched that most curious actor, Crispin Glover, in a most peculiar movie -- Bartleby -- that was based on a short story by Herman Melville done up in a modern setting. (Joe Piscopo was also in it.) Afterward, I went to the library and found a copy of the original 1800's version. The movie was surprisingly true to the narrative. Curious and peculiar, both of them. And the background music to the film was played on the Theramin. Perfect.

On cable tv yesterday.

You've Got Mail--I always find it curious for people to say 'It's just business, nothing personal', as though that means something.

Close Encounters of the Third Kind--one of the few movies full of awe, where the aliens didn't come here to kill everyone, only to return borrowed people and items (planes, boats).

Last night's Netflix was Wilby Wonderful, a nice little 24-hour slice of life in a small town in Nova Scotia. What a beautiful rocky coast they have.

Glenn and I watched Nights in Rodanthe last night and, for some reason, it hit me like a ton of bricks and I had a total meltdown.

I think it's because for many, many years Buck and I camped on the dunes in that area and the scenery brought back those wonderful memories. Then, too, this month is the anniversary of his death, along with his birthday, so it was a triple whammy. So many feelings just came rushing in and I was overcome.

Still, the movie was good and the old house on the beach was just too awesome.

Bonnie & Clyde. Saw Faye Dunaway years ago at a screening (sans makeup). Wouldn't have known her to pass her on the street, but she was a stunning woman. My neighbor, played the sheriff. Took me back. We went to Laughlin (Nevada) & saw the bullit-riddled car. Not sure if it was the original.

Caught the end of The Last Picture Show. Will watch it again on TMC.

Bonasera,

Cerise: Bonnie and Clyde ... Excellent film choice ... Faye Dunaway and Warren Beatty are excellent professionals.

My last film was The Sun Also Rises - Tyrone Power and Eva Gardner ... I am a big Hemmingway fan ... and thus, have all his literature and the classic films that had been turned into films ... One of my faves is The Sun Also Rises ... caught it on tv ...

Have nice Wednesday.
Margi. Ciao.
