Our last two movies were "Just Go With It" (Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston) and the newest Sherlock Holmes movie (Robert Downey, Jr. and Jude Law).

The first one had a few kind of crude scenes (most of them funny, but still crude). The thing that I didn't like about it was that they had kids swearing, and I hate that. The movie was funny and heartwarming though, and we both enjoyed it. Apparently it was a remake of "Cactus Flower," which I have never seen.

The Sherlock Holmes movie was great.

We watched The Hangover Part II last night.

Not for the feint of heart but we laughed.

Heh! Goldfinger has just ended here. We are now watching "The Fifth Element."

We watched two movies this evening, both on BF from the red kiosk.

Red Tails: I really really wanted to like this movie. The flight scenes were pretty impressive, the acting and dialogue was not. Every named character does not need a one liner in scene.

Wrath of the Titans: It was basically what I expected. Fun, over the top and straight forward.

I was glad to hear the good reviews here of "Water For Elephants". I DVR'ed it last month when DirecTV had a free movie week, but haven't watched it yet. Sounds like a good one.

I'm watching "Father of the Bride" right now with Steve Martin and Diane Keaton....yeah, I know....have seen it several times but I still love it.

A few days ago we watched an over-the-top Eddie Murphy movie, Norbit. We laughed from scene one to the end. Saying over-the-top and Eddie Murphy is a bid redundant, isn't it? At any rate, we're pretty sure we missed tons of one-liners and gags because we were so busy laughing at what was punching us in the humor gut.

Last night, on our month's free offering from our dish provider, we watched The Last Nine Yards, followed by its sequel, The Last Ten Yards. Silly, funny, totally unrealistic, but good fun all around. These two movies would be what Buck would have called "bubble gum for your brain." No point, pretty useless, but pure fun.

We still have a Netflix one, Click, to watch and one I checked out from the library, The King's Speech. These two movies couldn't be more different than black and white. Don't know when we'll get to them because we've been having a blast with what we've been viewing via our freebies on the dish.
