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.

The cable hallmark channel is running both versions of 'The Parent Trap', right now.

First the Hayley Mills version followed by the Lindsay Lohan version.

I'm going to leave them both on--in the background while I'm getting things done here. I've probably watched both versions a half dozen times.

We watched one of the silliest, goofiest, funniest movies...Anger Management, with Jack Nicholson and Adam Sandler.

Sometimes I didn't know where truth ended and fiction began. Nicholson is a NUT!!!!

Saw "Prometheus" last night on an enormous screen in 3D. Despite a few nit-picky things and one horrendously bad makeup job on one of the actors, my overall reaction comes down to a single word: WOW. It has to be one of most incredibly filmed movies I've ever seen, especially if you are a sci-fi fan.

"In Cold Blood" Hadn't seen it in several years. Great performance by Robert Blake. Was more chilling than the first time I viewed it.

Caught a relatively recent film we had seen at the Cinema on T.V. just a little while ago: The Company Men ... Losing a job is alot more than losing a desk ... It is losing a life style ... Good acting by Tommy Lee Jones. Ben Affleck was the supporting performer ...

Have nice wkend.
Ciao, Margi.

Well I finally saw The Curious Case of Benjamin Button from 2008.

I thought the ending to the movie was poorly done.

I also wondered why Benjamin Button was at thew doctors for his condition???

The makeup work was top notch though.

I really liked that movie. Many people make a comparison between Forrest Gump and that movie because of the similarities in the entire plot.
Curious Case Of Forrest Gump Vs Benjamin Button Video

I'm not sure that if Benjamin Button had gone to a doctor, the doctor would have believed his condition (since it really isn't a condition that exists) which would have clarified for the movie watcher that this movie is based on an impossible and unbelievable premise.

If you haven't seen it yet, you NEED to see Hachi: A Dog's Tale.

Glenn and I watched it last night and it, literally, grabbed us. What an amazing story!!!!

At the end, both of us were in full-blown weeping mode. It's such a touching and powerful story.

When I finally composed myself, I asked Mr. Google about Hachi and learned a lot more, which further made me cry.

It's a movie/story I'll never forget.

I read the true story about a couple of years ago. Nothing like the devotion of a pet. They say Fala used to sit everyday at the grave of FDR after he died.
