    When I saw that was Kelly McGillis it shocked me. She played the role so well, too.

    I tried to watch the Hobbit this week too. Bunch of crap. I made it through half before deciding to get up and do laundry.

    My kids and I watched A Dolphin Tale tonight. What an incredibly sweet and wonderful movie. My kids laughed hysterically, cried, and gave a standing ovation at the end. LOL Harry Connick Jr was a bloated mess. Loved the two kids and even Ashley Judd was tolerable.

    Here's the deal: I threw my tax envelope in the mail and realized I was at a meter (with time left on it) in front of a theater which advertised "all movies $3.50". I approached carefully (hey, you know why) and lo, they were showing "Silver Linings Playbook" that I have been wanting to see. It was luverly, especially the acting, what a joy! If you, too, have not had a chance to experience this fine film, hurry on down !

    Roman Polanski's The Ninth Gate. Not his best, as it was ponderously slow in places but some really good moments. I love the gruesome deaths of some of the characters. The Baroness skeeved me because of her missing arm and how Depp found her in her wheelchair. Johnny Depp looks cute, but I keep thinking about the lack of showers and those smelly French ciggies.

    I watched the Ken Burns doc. "The Central Park Five" last night on PBS (no cable in my house...boo) It was great and really shocked me. I was 9 when the rape happened and I have a very vague memory of seeing it on the news. I recall the jogger writing a book 10 years ago, but it wasn't really something I cared much about because the case happened when I was a kid. This documentary was shocking. Those poor kids! It is really a tragedy what they went through. I would totally recommend this for all to watch.

    Finally got around to watching Paradise Lost 3 Purgatory. It was almost as good as the previous two, it was really moving. Seeing the press conference where the WM3 talked about their Alford plea still brought tears to my eyes.
    I smile because I have no idea what's going on

    I watched Mamma Mia! starring Meryl Streep, Pierce Brosnan, Colin Firth, and Amanda Seyfried. It was good, but I couldn't figure out the timeline. They suggest throughout the movie that Donna (Streep) was a teenager or in her early twenties when she got pregnant with Sophie (Seyfried), who is supposed to be 20 in the movie. So that would put Donna in her late 30s or early 40s. But Meryl Streep and the two women who play her friends all look like they're in their mid to late 50s at the absolute youngest. I wonder if the stage version is the same way or if they typically cast a younger actress to play Donna or make Sophie older.

    I love watching Pierce Brosnan and Colin Firth dance around in those sequined bell bottom unitards and high heels at the end - hilarious!! It's like watching A-Listers get shitfaced and do karaoke.

    Meryl is a fine actress, but she can't do everything.

    I'm watching the Total Recall remake with Colin Farrell and Kate Beckinsale. It's a total fridge break of a movie.. The original had a wonderful campiness to it and didn't take itself so seriously. The remake is humorless and with Jessical Biel in the cast, woefully inept.

    Ironman 3. Good movie - RDJ is great, as is Ben Kingsley. I wish it had less GOOP though and because of The Avngers, I see some pretty giant plotholes.. still worth a watch IMO.

    Jack Reacher, I was not really looking forward for a Tom Cruise movie but to my own surprise I liked it. But there is one fighting scene where you see he is a midget

    Broken city, with Marky Mark and (yuck) crowe. Again liked it better then I thought I would.

    the queen of versailles, a documentary about david siegel and his bimbo wife, and their family, as they build the versailles mansion (biggest and most expensive house in the US) and then the economy collapses and they have to stop construction and face huge money issues.
    the film is excellent. it would have been so easy to turn these people into caricatures and make the whole thing one big schadenfreude camp-fest but it's actually subtle and has incredible depth and even poignancy. i highly recommend it.

    I was fascinated by the dark, esoteric adventure but the ending was very disturbing to me. Polanski has major issues.

    yes, he does, but they don't have anything to do with the ending of the movie, which is based on a book by arturo pérez-reverte called 'the dumas club'. great book, btw. even more dark and esoteric than the movie which IMO was pretty disappointing overall.
