Over the weekend we watched a small drama-comedy called ''Oranges''.Thought it was a very good DVD about two families in a New Jersey suburb. Very adult with good acting. Also saw "Jack Reacher" DVD with Tom Cruise,not a big ''T.C.'' fan but it was well done with a very good story that didn't rely on special effects and ''C.G.I.''although it did have very good car chase scenes and good acting. Followed ''Reachers'' profile from the book series pretty well.Not sure I would pay full price at the local cinema, but liked the DVds.

Just finished watching "Source Code". Sort of Sci-Fi. Pretty good.

Watched Bernie, which was based on true events, black comedy at it's best.

It seems every time it's on it's Redux. I haven't seen the original in so long I don't even recognize the extra footage.

Re Leonardo, did you see What's Eating Gilbert Grape? That's been quite some time ago, when Leo was just a kid. I really thought they had hired a boy with a disability -- like I thought Gary Sinese in Forest Gump was actually an amputee. Johnny Depp was very good as Gilbert Grape; Juliet Lewis as his girlfriend. I always thought it a shame that very good, poignant film was stuck with such a frivolous-sounding title.

i have just signed up for a 30 day free trial of amazon prime, so i can stream movies. what do you say, good move/bad move? i will watch 'what is eating gilbert grape for my first 'free' movie. at $6.66/mo., i figure i need to watch 3 or 4 worthwhile movies or so. i am very hard to please when it comes to movies. i don't generally like most popular films, and not even most popular genres today.but i guess i have those 30 days to figure out if it is worthwhile for me or not.

is there anything else that my amazon prime is good for besides viewing movies online?

can i hear from someone of you who is a member already, and likes or doesn't like the service? my hulu plus iwill be expiring shortly....

i sometimes wonder, how did i manage my life before dc. i bet some of you think that about me too....:)
