Thanks for sharing! I can't wait to see it.

I watched Jim Carrey's "The Grinch" this afternoon! Love that movie! It has become a holiday favourite along with Bill Murray's "Scrooged" which is on next Sunday!

Michelle, Daniel Day Lewis really gave this movie of Lincoln a new prospective of this brave and troubled man with such a heavy personal and historical burden that he became alive for me. Sally Field was also perfectly cast with her superb acting skills as his wife with her own demons. Both the people and the actors were truly remarkable.

You mentioned earlier "The Red Violin"........also one of my very favorite movies.

Thank you for sharing! It is great to share The Red Violin with another. I cannot wait for Lincoln!

I love b-rated horror films. The only way I can explain this is, I love horror & there isn't enough to satisfy my need. Anyway, I just watched The Innkeepers, greatest b horror ever. Characters are well written, gifted acting. Good story line, and no cheesy effects in attempt to make up for low budget.

When James found out I hadn't seen any of the "Tremors" movies, he bought all four of them. We have seen the first two so far. I don't like the language, but the movies were entertaining. We will see the other two soon.

Yes, Kylie, Jim Carey as the Grinch, in my opinion is his best role ever. And all the other actors were wonderful too. The sets, costumes, makeup really put you in the middle of Whoville! Dr. Seuss would be might proud indeed!

Kevin Bacon, Burt Ward, Reba McIntyre... Tremors was an instant classic for me. I liked that the movies were all just a little bit different while still trying to stick to a main "story". They did get a little cheesier too, but I found it worked

After many recommendations, I finally watched John Carter. Turned out to be an EXCELLENT movie. Very enjoyable in all the right ways - funny, suspenseful, dramatic - but most of all, believable. For a movie set on Mars anyways!
