"Silver Linings Playbook" is waiting for me. I'll pick it up when I go vote tomorrow.

Thank you. $1.50 is fine for renting. And I get it now. Also I don't have to deal with the local library system.

A Netflix French film, "El Bulli: Cooking in Progress." The Wow effect is wearing off, as it was a few days ago, but the movie was about a 'famous' restaurant (new to me) that periodically closes to spend months concocting new and unusual dishes for their clientele. Fascinating - to me, anyway. Meals must cost hundreds.

Sorry - correction: Scratch the French connection: the restaurant is in Barcelona. So I feel like a fool once again. I'm almost getting used to it.

We have watched quite a few movies lately, with various reviews:

Joyful Noise - Loved it! Dolly and Latifah in the same movie, what more needs to be said! Kris Kristofferson looked and sounded pretty rough though.

The Brothers Bloom - the trailers looked really good on this one and we were looking forward to it. While watching it I was looking forward to the end. Great acting from some great actors, but the plot just didn't do anything for me.

Wreck-it-Ralph - I didn't have any high hopes for this one and loved every minute of it. It was fun, nostalgic and very well done!

Hoodwinked - Again, the voice acting was great, and once it got to the end where the story finally unfolded, it was cute, but I was quite bored to be honest.

The Hobbit - An Unexpected Journey - We watched this last night and it didn't disappoint as far as being part of the LotR franchise, but there seemed to be a lot more gruesome violence in it. I do look forward to the next one however!

Something very forgettable with Kevin Spacey in it.
