I do know that I avoid anime religiously! (Ducking from all the anime fans)

I enjoy the anime stories, the art is secondary for me. I got involved with anime and manga so that one adult was aware of what one of the Grandson's was reading and watching, now I'm hooked on story lines.

How are you liking it? I watched the first (with Kevin Spacey). I guess if I still didn't have lingering memories of the first House of Cards (Ian Richardson) then I might have liked it better.

Absolutely nothing can replace that first series! IMO.

Oh cave, How to Train Your Dragon is a fan favorite around our house. We think Toothless looks a lot like our cat. Acts like him too!

Kids at work watched Smurfs 2 last night. They're all mid adolescent so that should tell you where they are at developmentally. Yeesh. I made popcorn and hid in the dining room playing Temple run.

I watched A Few Good Men again last night.
Maybe I never left it on through the credits before, but the music that plays during the credits is the same marching music that started the movie Taps, in which Cruise also played.
Coincidence? I think not.

Sometimes I think the credits are Himself's favorite part of a movie! Whenever we would go to the theater the workers would have to clean around us after nearly everyone else was gone.

When I'm at the library I always "graze" the movie choices. Glenn prefers nonfiction flicks and I came across one that was "based on a true story," The Craigslist Killer, so I checked it out.

Well...we watched it tonight. Whoa! Philip Markoff was one weird dude and neither of us could figure out what was his motivation. The events didn't happen too many years ago and we wondered why it didn't spark some memory because of all the probable media coverage.

Good film but a bit rough if you have a tender heart.

Don't worry Katie, the Boston and Providence media made sure they covered it more than enough just in case it wasn't covered to death anywhere else in the country. The old adage "if it bleeds, it leads" sure played out in this one. And yes, he was a strange bird from all reports. Seems we have more than our fair share of strange birds up here. Neil Entwistle, Craig Rockefeller... Right now we're on Aaron Hernandez overload after just finishing up with the James Bulger saga.
