I loved that movie redkitty.

I have been home sick for a few days now so today I watched some stupid comedy's. I started with Harold and Kumar Go To White Castle. It was very dumb, but somewhat funny and entertaining.

Next I watched Beerfest. It was also very stupid, but funny. I would not want to pay money to see these, but for free they were not a waste of time.

At the movies it was Santa Clause III

At home it was - ummmmm - the last movie I watched with the family was Pirates of the Carribean - the last one, whatever that name is.

We saw Thank You for Smoking some time ago, and enjoyed it. I thought it was pretty cool, despite of the whole theme, no one actually lit up and had a puff throughout the film. The kid seems to be on high demand these days, I have seen him in quite a few films in the last couple of years. He has indeed a special talent for his age, much more than just being a cute little creature.

We haven't seen a lot of films lately, I think the latest release we saw was "Driving Lessons" starring that red headed boy from the Harry Potter series. The film was delightful, gorgeous scenery of Scotland and London suburb, and if this young actor chooses his work wisely, he could go far, he can say so much just with his eyes without saying anything.

A couple of nights ago we watched "Wedding Crashers", actually the last film we saw. It was a hoot, as expected from Owen Wilson. But this film showcased a bit different side of him, a little more than the usual goofy slacker. And it is always a delight to see Chris Walken strutting his stuff!

SPL: Kill Zone

The movie is good, but has loads of bloody, bloody violence. It also some amazing fight scenes.

The people in the US get one crazy shocking ending. The people in Asia I think got screwed.

I rented a 2-disc DVD version of the film with loads of DVD extras including TV spots, Interviews, Commentary and more......

Paul and I went and saw "NOTES ON A SCANDAL" yesterday. It's an ok movie. Nice story line... good beginning, middle and end but... you don't really get attached to the characters. There's nothing about any of them that really makes you "FEEL" anything. I just didn't care what happened to them next.

Buck and I rented March of the Penguins and saw it last week. There was a lot of hype when it came out and some of our family/friends whom we trust gave it great reviews. It was okay and we're glad we didn't spend money to see it in the theater. The scenery was beautiful and we continually were awed at the conditions the makers had to endure to produce such a film.

However, the penguins marched a little too much for us because it seemed to get a bit tedious.

The next film we're going to watch is Memoirs of Geisha, which is another film we've heard quite a bit about. The costuming, etc. might be lovely from what we've heard.

Oh, Uncle Bob, Buck and I want to see that movie. How was it? We'd be interested to hear your comments. We're Baby Boomers, too.
