I just Netflixed Stuck In Love. Heavy on the drama, but decent.

"No Reservations". Requested it from the library after someone (whoever you are, thanks!) posted a clip from the movie. Cute, not too romantic.

Yes, very "light" enjoyable movie.

Omigosh! How fun, funny, silly, enjoyable...

Last night we watched Mr. & Mrs. Smith, which we'd recorded off our dish some while ago. It's a Brad Pitt/Angelina Jolie movie that is pure mental chewing gum but all fun.

They're a married couple who are both guns for hire but...neither of them knows that's what each of them does for a living. Well, it gets pretty complex from there.

We laughed out loud at some of the antics and I'm sure we missed parts because we were laughing at something.

Pure fun escapism!

While it is a new series (on HBO so it is more movie like) has any one caught Black Sails?

Through 3 episodes I am really digging it.

I saw the trailers three times.
Does that count?

from the Netflix library: 'The Gathering Storm' - an up-close and personal look at Winston Churchill during the period of 1935-1939. Great portrayal by Albert Finney with Vanessa Redgrave as his Clementine. For the first time I replayed it with the makers' remarks -- found out that the red line behind which the opposition must stay in Parliament is the origin of the expression 'toe-ing the line.'

Oh, I loved that---- love almost anything about Churchill. I just put it in my queue again! Thanks for the reminder.

I am not into movies much. I would rather read a book. The only movies I watch are usually made-for-tv movies like on Lifetime. I like to watch shows like Real Stories of the ER, or those re-inacted murder mysteries.
