I just watched The Secret life of Bees on instant amazon based on all the recommendations here. I loved it! I want to read the book now. I usually read the books first and watch the movie later but I am involved in so many books now, this one will have to wait!

We had planned on watching "Apostle Peter and The Last Supper" (I think that is the title) tomorrow with friends, but since everyone was there last night we watched it then. What a disappointment. I love a good Christian movie, but this was not one. It was boring and it twisted scripture horribly.

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.
The impossible and unbelievable premise is another problem I have with the movie.....

The Rodger Ebert review of the movie is a good one...

Last night we watched "The Adjustment Bureau". I liked it. Took a bit to figure what was going on but once you did it was very intriguing.

Rented "The Help" at Redbox for tonight. I hope it does justice to the book.
