We finally got to see "Les MisÚrables" last night. Who knew Hugh Jackman could make me cry?! We loved it!

Oops... I meant to say Best Director.

Any strange movie on Amazon Prime would have been better than what I witnessed last night.

Speaking of strange, lol, I watched a documentary on BBC America, The Agony and the Ecstasy of Phil Spector. I learned a little more about his career & The Wall of Sound. I enjoyed the old b/w footage of the songs of the '60s, etc. Great editing of silent courtroom scenes overlapped with videos. Still, the film left me with chills, & wondering about the real man.

roger ebert, one of our best american film critics, passed away at the age of 70. usually, if roger liked a film, i could expect to like it too, and for much of his same reasons. r.i.p., roger....

A critics opinion has never been the deciding factor for me in choosing a movie but IMO Rogers reviews were on the money most of the time.

Given the range of tastes in movie audiences Rogers accuracy was nothing short of phenomenal.
