Have you ever seen il Postino, the postman? Another Italian film which made its name internationally in the 90's. The setting is different but it has very similar feeling and charm, so discreetly funny, poignant and romantic all at the same time without becoming ever over the top. If you haven't had a chance, I highly recommend it

We watched Tube Tales last night. Nine stories based on the true-life experiences of London Underground passengers. It left us both a bit sad and we had to watch an episode of Futurama after to cheer us up.

I also saw The Orphanage over the weekend. I was actually expecting something different and was pleasantly surprised by how much I liked it. Not a movie I would add to our DVD collection, but I did enjoy it.

Last night I watched Futurama: Bender's Big Score. Not bad. Not great, but not bad.

Really? back in the 70's there was interracial dating at my high school which was on a military base and it was not a big deal--- nearly all the jocks were dating girls of different races and everyone got along---even Shaq attended our high school long after I left and was considered quite a catch even back then.......it was great and I realize now how unique and wonderful it was
The only difference between a "cook" and a "Chef" is who cleans up the kitchen.

I finally watched No Reservations last night. It was a sweet story and the male lead was very easy on the eyes so I give it a thumbs up.
