No Country For Old Men. I was pretty disappointed considering all the hype. The first half of the movie was slow moving, but entertaining, but the second half just did not do it for me.

Bummer GB! We both loved it, but it's not a typical Coen Bro's movie so some people have been disappointed. It took me a day or two to be happy with the ending.

We watched The Mist last night, thought it was well done but the ending was pretty dark. I really like Thomas Jane, glad to see he has a few movies coming out.

We saw Enchanted the other night. It was cute and funny, a great family movie.

"john adams", an hbo series.
episode 1 - join or die, and episode 2 - independence.

this is fascinating stuff, even if it is initially about future red sox fans.
it should be required to be seen in every high school history class.

paul giamatti is great in it. what a big difference from his role as pig vomit.


anyone else watching it?

I don't have HBO so missed John Adams but hope it shows up later on DVD or something. I really wanted to see it since it was filmed in Willliamsburg and Richmond which are only about 30-45 mins from my home.

This last weekend we went and saw The Bank Job. It was way better than I expected. I'd recommend it.

We watched the entire first season of Californication this weekend, we are hooked! Can't wait for the second season to start.

The other night was Alien vs Predator.... a total no brainer. Hopefully they will stop making sequels for them!!

Watched both versions of Dr. Dolittle (Rex Harrison, Eddie Murphy) on TV just because I was bored and had nothing better to do. Then we rented Sydney White - it was cute!
