When I retire I'll have time to go to the movies again.

They're already selling tickets to the latest Star Wars movie and it's not even due out until Dec. 18th. That's unusual for movies.

The movie "Burnt" seems to be taking a hit from critics so far, but then again...it's a movie about chefs and cooking, so who cares, right?

That's exactly right Caslon. If someone isn't interested in food, other than to just eat, this movie might not fill everyone's ticket.

On the other hand, I just saw Burnt today, and it was fabulous for me! Good story, good acting, and the food was a feast for the eyes.
I highly recommend it, especially for folks like all of us.

Oooh, thanks for the review, Kay. It came out here on Friday and I want to wait until a weekday to see it. I think I'll go Monday or Tuesday. As you and Caslon mentioned, I don't put much stock into the reviews, either. I've loved what they've panned, and vise versa. Can't wait to see it!

TB, Kay and I watched "The Princess Diaries" this afternoon. TB and I had never seen it before and I have always wanted to. Wow, even at 17 (she played 15), Anne Hathaway was a star! Julie Andrews was no slouch either! I am looking forward to watching the sequel, even though Kay said it is not as good (as with all sequels). I loved Hector Elizondo playing his usual "protector" sort of role. He did it well in "Pretty Woman" and again here.

You're gonna love "BURNT" you two!

The SousChef was working the Pumpkin train today, and I couldn't believe I was the only person in the theater this afternoon. It was nice! The rest of the movies were all the creepy kind, so I guess everyone was in there for Halloween.

It wasn't as gentle a story as the food movie we all loved in France recently, but every bit as good in it's own gritty way.

For the full visual impact of the food, I'd highly recommend the theater option.

Question

I know it's not quite what this thread is for but it is film related.

Has anyone seen "Babette's Feast"
? If so, your views on it please e.g. is the feast/cooking etc. just an addition towards the end of the film or does food constitute quite a large part of the story? I have read the plot which does not particularly interest me.

I see it is showing on UK TV soon and wonder whether it is worth recording?

Burnt, last night. Entertaining, but lots of F-bombs so if that bothers you, stay home and wait for the edited TV version.
