"Dropped out of Juliard after one year, tracked down Charlie Parker on 52nd Street who mentored him for the next 3 years."
    Oh me too!! That just sticks out of my mind. Poor Jazz Man. And it just happened really suddenly too, he didn't even stand up just POP POP POP. I don't even think I saw his hand move! O.O!!!!!

    I'm having a bad movie weekend:
    First I watch Mean Girls, wish I hadn't,then I watch the most wretched "When Will I Be Loved?". Neve Campbell isn't bad in this movie it's everyone else. The screeching music just will not stop making a halfway decent (or should I say different) story unbearable.

    Her boyfriend (Frederick Weller) is just plain horrid. The two sex scenes (one female and one male) are done with clothes on.

    The Door in the Floor, with Kim Basinger and Jeff Bridges. I watched this only because it's based on a John Irving novel I loved, A Widow For One Year. It followed the book quite faithfully, but unfortunately the movie covered only the first half of the book. Extremely disappointing as the second part of the novel, with Ruth as the central character, is really the basis for the entire story, IMO. If you watch this make sure you have a big box of Kleenex beside you. Decent performances by the cast, anyway.

    Agree AJane. So far really no movie has captured the depth of the stories in John Irving's books. Probably hard to do given the time he takes to create that depth. World According to Garp came pretty close, maybe Hotel New Hamsphire second, but really nothing nails it. Cider House Rules was a complete departure from the actual story.

    I thought Widow for One Year was his best book in a long time, a great read for those looking for one.

    Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights -watched it last night......definitley doesn't even come close to the original. The cast/performance were mediocre and the story had nothing to do with the original movie. Patrick Swayze did make a brief cameo appearance as a dance instructor....and well...he can still dance. Overall I did enjoy the music and dancing.

    I, Robot and The Forgotten.

    I, Robot was pretty good. The Forgotten, not so much. I really wanted to like it, but there were too many plotline holes for my liking.
    If you go through a lot of hammers each month, I don't think it necessarily means you're a hard worker.
    It may just mean that you have a lot to learn about proper hammer maintenance.

    Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights' SOLE purpose is as a vehicle for ogling Latin hottie Diego Luna. In my household, this movie was rented in secrecy and shame, and viewed on a Girls' Night In.

    Anyway, we rented Alien vs. Predator. Hubby is a HUGE Predator fan, and I loved the Aliens films, so we had fun with this film even if it was virtually plotless. Plots? We don't need no stinkin' plots! The FX were awesome and the action was fast. A good time was had by all.

    Diego! I have to admit I haven't seen the movie. Diego was incredibly enticing but I didn't want to spend money to watch in the cinema.


    I just watched "Down with Love". It was prettiful and Renee is just beautiful in the movie. After "Bridget Jones 2" ugly-look, I am glad she looked great in that movie. Why is Ewan McGregor married?

    Diego was cute......as for Patrick swayze, I MUCH prefer to watch him in the original movie. It was too weird seeing him in this one, and SO much older. He's still a great dancer though.
