Today Pirate and I sat and watched Ocean's Eleven with the original cast. He asked me if it was a good movie. I just told him that there was quite a surprise ending. I hate Spoiler People. I was watching his face during the funeral. He almost fell out of his chair when he realized what happened.

Interesting thing is difference between the original and the new movies. In the original movie the thieves get nothing, in the new one they get both the girl and the money. Original message is "crime doesn't pay". The new one, message is sophisticated crime pays even more". Scary thought that this is what new generation is learning.

I have only seen the original one. I just thought the final payoff was just so right. Sammy Davis held back one bag of money that they others do not know about. So he is the only one who had any money in the end. I just thought the ending was genius.

Spotlight

A terrific movie that hit closer to home than I thought it would ...

I don't think I can watch that movie. The subject matter makes me too angry.

We watched Kingsman: The Secret Service last night. It was bad but we had fun with it and ended up enjoying ourselves.

Watched a 1946 B movie on YouTube last night.
Had never seen it before.



The Dark Mirror, starring Olivia De Havilland.
Great movie. Tisk tisk twin sisters. Lol!
Fantastic ending. Surprised me.

Hollywood just doesn't make movies like this anymore. People actually talk.

Kay and I have been watching a whole pile of sappy Christmas movies, many Hallmark ones that were filmed around Vancouver and other parts of BC and Canada. Many have the same plots, same actors, etc. but they are still fun to watch!
LP, I love that movie! You just reminded me to get my DVD back from my daughter, I loaned it to her last year. I love that little cottage that Cameron Diaz's character stays in - it's how I picture the English countryside.

The Hateful Eight. Well, I fell asleep through most of this just under 3 hour long post civil war western. All I remember were the very long, drawn out dialogue and the gory shooting scenes. I think this was the only Tarantino film that I really didn't care to sit through and watch.
