Only a little, AL Vampire Hunter was very spot on with historical detail and very entertaining. Team of Rivals was fairly dry. My appreciation for non-fiction tends toward the medical field. Other reading is done for fun and Uncle John's Bathroom Readers.

I read Team of Rivals to compare the historical accuracy of ALVH.

Speaking of remake movies, I went to the theater over the weekend to see The Great Gatspy 2013. Visually this film is incredibly stunning. From grand sets to the detailed period dresses, this film is a treat for the eyes and ears. This is exactly the kind of movie I enjoy seeing in a theater, and walk out feeling thankful theaters still exist.

We were just talking about that one last night! So very funny, so very non-PC by today's standards. SO very funny! BIL was saying how Mel Brooks flipped off the censors when they wanted him to edit out the more parts of the movie. Had he trimmed it he'd have been left with a 30-minute short.

SB, did you see it in 3D? I didn't and that was fine with me as 3D gives me a headache, although I bet the party scenes were just over the top!
