I loved Conan! So much that when I got a Rottie back in 83-84, I named him Conan.
Although when I see it in the TV schedule now, I pass it by..... most of the time
I never got into Ferris Bueller's Day off. Aside from Biloxi Blues I'm not a big Matthew Broderick fan.

I saw Knocked Up the other night. It had its funny moments, was totally unbelievable and kept me entertained through the whole thing . Much along the same lines of Old School.

Just got in the The Tudors season one series from Amazon this afternoon and have really enjoyed watching the first 5 episodes with 5 more to go. Jonathan Rhys Meyers as King Henry VIII is very good as well as the supporting actors and the costumes and scenery are gorgeous. Not for young viewers, however, as there are quite a few love scenes as you might expect from a man who had 6 wives and several mistresses. But they really also focus on the political and religious machinations occuring at that time as well. I can't wait for season 2 which starts in March but I'll be overseas and hopefully will be able to download it from iTunes. Sorry to chinwag here.

I watched "The Iron Giant" with my little guy last night. We've watched it many, many times but I still love it.

Love that scene too!!

You know, I unwittingly started mimicing the economics teacher when I call my cats. My mum noticed it one day when I was standing at the front door just going "Anyone want to come in? Anyone? Anyone??" It is now such a habit, that I associate my cats with this movie!!! LOL

Funny you should say that. Whenever that movie is on I DVR it and fast forward to that one scene. I love the music and I think that scene is the most "feel good" scene in any movie I've ever watched.

We watched Eastern Promises last night. Interesting movie. I like Viggo Mortensen.
