We watched a 2013 movie, 'Prisoners', last night. What an intense film about a neighbor who kidnaps two little girls. Very good film. There were a couple of parts in the film I couldn't connect so I'll probably watch it again this week.

I do...but I am watching, The Return of Frank James, with Henry Fonda...so it kinda brings back the other movie, too!

I love the scene where Jack Elam has the fly in the gun barrel. (OUATITW)

Jack Elam. I can never remember his name.
There are some actors suited for certain roles and he plays a classic cowboy very well. Just like Aldo Ray is a classic soldier.

Gravity. Didn't care for it that much.

We recently watched Iron Man 3 for the first time. I don't often like the third movie in a series, but this one was excellent! The story didn't get old.

Tonight we go back to our Harry Potter marathon. I think we are on movie number 6 of the 8. It is very interesting watching them close together like this - I am getting so much more out of them that I have seeing them individually (even several times).

Well, I borrowed a dvd copy and saw it last night on tv. But my 18 yr old grandson who's seen it 3 times on IMAX thought otherwise and told me this was not the type of film to watch on a big screen tv, no matter what size. I gave him that on visual and audio content but other than that it was...blah.... There was no comparison to say, Apollo 13, which I really enjoyed, on the small screen.

Visual and audio are fine, but there has to be a story. The size of the screen will not matter if the story is good.

Last night we watched our Netflix disk of a Sandra Bullock movie, The Heat. It was hilarious. The woman who ultimately became her partner, Mullins, was a scream. We laughed and I know, because we laughed so much, we had to have missed other funny moments. I'll never be able to look at a coffee filter again without laughing.

Exactly. There was no story in Gravity. I can certainly understand being a visual treat in a 3-D theater, but that's all...
I don't understand all the hype and nominations behind this film.
