Pretty Woman

As many times as I've seen Pretty Woman, it always makes me smile. Can't help but love Roy Orbison :-)

I haven't seen Fast Food Nation but recently watched Super Size Me. It is sometimes hard work, but I'm a happy vegetarian!
Yea, the Green Mile gets me too.. I was just a blubbering mess!!!

Fast Food Nation is different than Supersize Me... at the end I think it gets more to the point of the mass production/reality of it all. Kinda hard to take if you ask me.

Texasgirl... Green Mile is a keeper for sure, I watch it any opportunity that I get to. I also have issues with the CGG... but in Bridge to Terrabithia, it did not seem to me it was over used as it is in some movies. So I was able to enjoy it.

Last night I watched 'Leaving Las Vegas'. Boy was that a dark film. However it was very good, despite the depressing content. I took something from 2 people in horrible situations finding a degree of comfort and togetherness from each other despite their predicaments.

We watched "I am Legend" over the weekend. I'm a sucker for sci-fi
(plus Will Smith is a really good actor).

Yea, it's a good one as well... definately does not leave you all warm and fuzzy at the end!

Barbara L... I don't think I have met a person yet that does not like the Green Mile. Such an uplifting and heart breaking story all at the same time.

Definitely! A lot of people are surprised to find out that The Green Mile (and Shawshank Redemption--another good prison movie) was from a book by Stephen King. He is so known for horror stories. But when you think about it, both those movies have their own kinds of horrors.
