i find the mayan culture fascinating. i guess it's from spending time in quintana roo and for a short period, living with the locals. but they're a great people. funny, smart, humble, hardworking, and most welcoming.

i long to go back.

Glad you enjoyed it...we are going to see it soon too

Saw Django unchaged last night. Have mixed feelings about it. Could not figure out if it was a serious film, or as always for Torentino a spoof.

One of my favorite actors in many movies.

Plan to watch "Magic Mike" tonight.
I have been wondering about Tim Curry as I hadn't seen much of him lately and he is one of my all time faves. I loved him in "IT", "Rocky Horror", "Legend", and the super silly "Clue" to name just a few. I am glad he is getting better.

We watched "Grease" last night. Hard to believe that movie is 35 years old, and based on a time 20 years before that! I mean it is hokey, Stockard Channing and Olivia Newton-John were playing characters half their ages, and John Travolta was off key more than a few times, but the music is great and timeless.

Michael Douglas as Liberace in "Behind the Candelabra" last night was mesmerizing. He WAS Liberace. Matt Damon was great as well. I have a feeling some awards might be coming.

We watched Chronicle last night. It was every bit the movie I expected.

Giggled our way through "Parental Guidance" last night. After gardening all day I hope to be watching the backs of my eyelids earlier than usual.

Red, White and Blue. Very violent, disturbing, yet riveting.
