+1

Turner Movie Classics was showing "I'll Be Seeing You" made around the time I was born. I'd never seen it but always have loved the song. I liked the movie a lot, in the nostalgic old movie kind of way. Nice at Christmas time.

I must be on a roll.

Just got back from seeing Wild with Reese Witherspoon. Excellent book, and an equally excellent movie.

Directed by Jean-Marc Vallée, Screenplay By Nick Hornby | Wild | Fox Searchlight

I liked 'Wild' overall but I thought the film did not quite capture the sense of the distance she trekked. I really didn't get the feeling she was hiking.

But I really enjoyed watching "The Way" on Netflix. Another backpacking film, Martin Sheen treks across Spain in this wonderful film and I really felt the sense of distance traveled and the purpose behind it.

Ahh yes, The Way is a remarkble film!

I can add that the bonus features were fun to watch. Most of the actors in the movie stayed in the same hotel, except for "Papa". He rented an apartment with access to a real kitchen, so he could have the other cast members over and cook for them.
We just watched that today, what a fantastic movie!

RoadFix, I'm curious, are you or someone in your family a member of the SAG? I have a friend who's son in law is a member and they can watch the current movies not yet released to the public together as a family. Very cool.

A close family friend works for a writer and she brings us the screeners. They usually become available in November and are sent to members of the academy.

Yes, indeed, beautiful picture, I only wish, they had it in SmeloVision, so we could smell all the beautiful dishes they were preparing.

The Interview. Funny and silly, but was not worth my time watching.
