Cooler today in South GA. Highs in the low 90's, no rain.


TOTD: What were the last movies you saw? Were they any good? Wo0uld you recommend them to anyone else?

The last movies I saw were flashes from the past on TV this weekend - "The Lost Boys" and "Jurassic Park". The first was amusing and the second still had some good "booga-booga!" moments. As to movies at the theatre, the last one we saw was a documentary, "Yoo-Hoo, Mrs. Goldberg!" about the woman behind the long-running radio and early TV show, "The Goldbergs". That show ran from 1929-1955.
I suppose I'll see "Julie and Julia" eventually, but probably not at a first - run movie.

The movie that made me fall in love with Kiefer.:D I watch it practically every time it's on.

No, but he looks good to me no matter what. That is the first movie I recall seeing him in.

We rented The Uninvited and Fragments this weekend.


The Uninvited was really good. I recommend it to anyone who likes a thriller, not so much a horror movie.

Fragments I could take or leave. I like Dakota Fanning, but not Forrest Whitaker.


I also watched The Incredibles this weekend. I have it DVR'd. One of my favorite movies.

I first saw him in "Stand by Me" which came out a year or so earlier. I can't say that I've kept up with his career with quite the same attention as you have. :)

Shannon, I picked up this tidbit about Kiefer from IMDB.com. I'm not sure he's the man for you.

"Grandson of former Saskatchewan premier Tommy Douglas, leader of the first elected socialist government in North America. Douglas was premier from 1944-1961, and was known as the father of Canada's government-funded medical system."

:eek:

We're cooling off all week - high 70s - low 80s. I have pumpkins! I wasn't sure I would after the big hail disaster but I was poking around in that monster vine and there they were.

TOTD: the last movies I saw were The Collector and The Orphan. The Collector just sucked. Some of the Saw people were involved so I thought it had a shot but it was completely pointless. Even if you love gore, skip this one.

The Orphan, however, was great! You will absolutely get your money's worth with this one. It's a perfect little popcorn horror flick with enough twists to satisfy anybody.

Next week the fourth installation of Final Destination is opening. You guys so know that I will there. There's nothing more satisfying than a bunch of teenagers getting creatively killed in sequence and slow motion. :)

I am aware of that. I am willing to overlook his family.

We rented Max Payne with Mark Wahlberg this weekend, ans I thought it was pretty good.. I like most of his stuff, but his best to date has to be Three Kings with George Clooney and Ice Cube or Shooter.. Shooter was an awesome movie!

The last time I was in a theater it was to see the documentary Media Malpractice.

We watched Shooter again this weekend too! Great movie, I wish they would make movies out of all the Bob Lee Swagger books!
Also watched Cloverfield again, it was better this second time, I want the sequel!!!

Shooter was really good. A buddy said Max Payne just wasn't what he thought it would be.

Last night we watched "Over the Hedge"...greath animated film by Dreamworks. Last film I saw in theaters was "District 9", a really good film. This week we plan to see "Inglorious Basterds" and they're doing a "zombie crawl" in downtown San Jose Wednesday night that ends at a outdoor movie theater that will be showing "Shaun of the Dead".

Saw "The Ugly Truth" a few weeks ago. Tolerable, funny at times, but entirely predictable.

We watched the 1967 version of "The Taming of the Shrew" - Burton/Taylor.

Liz was a babe in 1967.

I watched The Soloist with Robert Downy Jr. and Jamie Foxx. I thought it was a pretty decent movie with both Downy and Foxx turning in good preformances. All in all not a bad flick.

If you haven't seen Into the Wild, you really owe it to yourself.. It was a great, thought-provoking movie.

Last movie I saw was UP. I took my 3 year old. I was surprised he sat through it all.

Is that the one where the Hippy decides to live off the land, then starves. I'll pass, but I bet the ending was great.

Shooter is a great movie.
