Just watched a documentary called INTO GREAT SILENCE, a look at the life of the Monks in the Carthusian Monastery of the Grande Chartreuse in the French Alps. A beautiful film.

Night before last James and I watched "Taken 2," with Liam Neeson. We liked the first one best, but it was good.

Last night we watched "Dark Shadows," with Johnny Depp. It had a couple kind of raunchy scenes that it could have done without, but I really liked it. I think James liked it too, but he hasn't said yet. I know he wasn't expecting to like it.

Let's see, yesterday, after finishing the first three episodes (disk1) of season 2 of Downton Abbey, it was The BTK Killer, The Hillside Strangler (getting my history in) and I finished it off with a movie called The Company Men. A movie about corporate downsizing and men losing their jobs.

Yesterday we watched Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance and Hysteria.

Ghost Rider was bad, and that does not amuse me. I loved the comic as a kid. This could have been so much cooler.

Hysteria was pretty good.

A film written and directed by Sofia Coppola -- Somewhere. As I turned off the DVD player I was thinking, what a waste of time. But this is the kind of film that sticks in your head and causes you think about it later. She got her point across, which was the shallowness of fame and the basically hollow life of a pop-culture star adored by the public -- a waste of time. Unfulfilling in big capital letters. The scene where the star gets the full treatment by the special effects people was grueling.

We are watching, "It's A Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World". Shrek will be putting on, "The Russians Are Coming, The Russians Are Coming" next.
