Did you like Big Eyes, RF? I want to see that one.

Today Steve and I went to the theater to see Unbroken. It's unusual to hear and participate in spontaneous applause at the end of a movie. What a remarkable true story!

The Holiday, with Kate Winslet, Cameron Diaz, and Jude Law. I've seen it before, but it's been a year. Cute little movie.


I'd like to see Unbroken, too - it's playing at our local theater now. Looks like a good one.

We went and saw the final installment of "The Hobbit" yesterday. Here's my take (without giving much away): I like battle scenes as much as the next guy, but after a while it gets very old - especially when it's so over the top as to be unbelievable. I'm sorry to say I was just a little disappointed.

We rented "Her" , I guess we added to our Netflix list a while ago, oh my, it was so bad, no bad is not a word, it was done fine, but the whole thing was pathetic.

I forgot to mention that when we went to see Unbroken yesterday, The Interview was showing at our little "one horse town" theater. Since it's only been released to 300 theaters nation wide, I guess we're famous now.
There wasn't a line for tickets but we may have been there at the wrong time. Does anyone want to see it?

I loved it. I'm planning on watching it again this week.

RF, I'm glad to hear the good report about Big Eyes. I'm showing my age, but as a new bride in 1963 I had both a boy and girl Keene paintings above our sofa. It was so long ago, I don't recall what became of them.
