We saw Atonement today on the matinee. This was OK, didn't really meet my expectations (I came loaded with Kleenex and didn't use any). Our plan is to see every movie nominated for the Oscar for best picture before the awards show.

Last night we watched Eastern Promises and I thought it was very well done.

We watched Eastern Promises pretty recently. Viggo did an incredible job, I thought. I think he's a good actor.

I watched Madame Hotchkiss' school of ballroom dance and charm (I think that's what it's called. Such a long title). It was a sweet movie. Liked the actor in it.

I am showing James "The Russell Girl." Sheesh, I was already crying before it was 5 minutes into the movie (just remembering what was going to happen). I fully expect James will be crying by at least the last half hour. Shhhhh! Don't tell him I said that! LOL

You should still see it! I recorded it, but it is now available at Hallmark stores if you weren't able to record it. If you see it, let me know how you liked it.

Sideways has been one of my favorite movies for a long time. I love the acting, the story and the ending. I don't think I can ever look at a bottle of Merlot wine the same way again. LOL

I had a free afternoon today so I went for a double showing at the Movies. I saw Cloverfield followed by No Country For Old Men. Enjoyed both, the later the most, the character Anton Chigurh is brilliant. I actually found Cloverfield to be quite funny. The dialog from the character that does nearly all the filming really made me laugh.
