    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.

    So, Peroxide Kiefer is your favorite version? :)

    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.
