We have Turner Classic Movies on our Direct TV, plus besides that collect classic movie DVD's & probably have well onto 2,000 by now, so who knows what the last one we watched at home was. I guess at home it would be "A Face In The Crowd" with Andy Griffith, Patricia Neal, & Walter Mattheau that TCM showed earlier today.

But as far as going out to the movies, the last one we saw was "Sweeney Todd" with Johnny Depp, & it was fabulous.

Just saw Cloverfield. A total disasterous movie! The filming was horrible; the camera kept shaking all over the place; nothing good about it.

Yeah, The Postman, Waterworld...... high budeget/low profit, but if you like Kevin Costner they're worth watching. I liked them.

Isn't the camera "supposed" to be shaking all over the place? I thought I read it was filmed along the same lines as Blair Witch Project I could be wrong....

Cloverfield got terrible reviews around here. Just a low-base semi-horror flick. But then I'm more into the classics myself. Most of the new stuff is just gore/trash. I'll wait till it's on DirectTV. Have no desire to spend $20 on something I can see virtually for free.

Some friends and I went to see "Bucket List" yesterday. We're all still laughing. Great pairing of Morgan Freeman and Jack Nicholson. Don't miss this one.

Spent my afternoon finishing up menus for March, so put in a VCR tape of Driving Miss Daisy. What a great film even after so many years! Cast and story couldn't have been better.
