The book was fantastic! Read the book. I read it twice and listened to the audio (read by Stephen King himself!) twice. The TV movie S T U N K!! It had no heart it was just flat. Read the book or listen to Stephen reading it.

Highly recommend.

The Harder They Fall (1956) - IMDb
That is funny, I have that movie on the top of my list to watch.

Also saw Lawless, last Sunday. I like it a lot.

Lawless was good. I love history.

Granted, Hollywood exercises a great deal of creative licence in their movies but many of the "true stories/based on true story movies have led me to research actual events.

Here's another good historical move


Ken Watanabe is one of my favorite present day actors.

Actually Simon was a german shepherd . But he was obedience trained and took direction well!

We have watched several movies lately.

MIB 3 - not bad, better than #2.

The Dark Knight Rises - Intense and dark. But I enjoyed Anne Hathaway as Catwoman!

The Mechanic - I remember watching the original years and years ago which I liked. This one was a little too brutal for me - I know that is the point, but you don't have to go overboard.

I have several episodes of Downton Abbey to watch and tomorrow we are planning to take a day trip if the weather is nice so we may be taking a day off from the movies.
Living gluten/dairy/sugar/fat/caffiene-free and loving it!

Cloud Atlas. It's ineresting the way all the stories connect. It's really interesting seeing the different actors play different characters, sometimes in makeup and personalities that make them almost unrecognizable. I love it.

I don't really get how people said they couldn't follow it. The stories are distinct enough that they are easy to tell appart. I think too many people tried to overthink it.
Just because something has a duck bill doesn't mean it's a platypus. It might just be a duck.

Cloud Atlas... there's 25 minutes of my life I'll never recover.

Party of five ( Ages 22-85) in complete agreement on an early departure.

Five thumbs down. Not even worth a rental.
