I almost have the dialogue off by heart and I still have a bit of a sniffle at various stages in the film.
I still haven't seen Casablanca. Maybe someday.

but it was an enjoyable story. amy adams made it worth the look playing off a stereotypical older eastwood.
Batman was OK. They'll keep throwing another flick to the public until we stop paying to see them. The twist caught me by surprise. I wanted to see what was under the mask.

I enjoyed "Curve" because I like baseball and I'm a sap for father/daughter movies. I could empathize with an old guy who's starting to "run down". My eyes are still pretty good but I need an ear trumpet.

That's a favorite of mine Addie. It's worth the effort.

Recently watched Cloud Atlas and Ted. Couldn't get into CA and turned it off. Didn't really care for Ted.

Our cable company is letting everyone watch HBO to entice you to buy. The more I watch, the more I feel I don't need it.

The Frozen Ground, about an Alaskan serial killer. John Cusack and Nick Cage, with the guy who played Hank on Breaking Bad. Sorry, I don't know his name, but he's born to play a cop.

Great movie Addie. You really should watch it. I've seen it twice, and I don't even like old movies. Then again, neither the movie nor I were so old when I first saw it...

i watched "the secret life of walter mitty" starring ben stiller this morning.

i kinda liked it.

then i tried to watch "the hobbit: desolation of smaug" and ended up fast forwarding through a lot of it.

how many hours of dwarves being chased by orcs can one person really stand?

Many years ago William Windom starred in "The Secret World of Walter Mitty. It didn't last past one season.

Depends on how much Hobbit is in your background.
