    Gas, Food Lodging. I hadn't seen that in forever.

    I rented Bride and Prejudice. The Indian remake of Pride and Prejudice. It was different, it's a musical. I loved the color of this movie, everything is so colorful. The guy who played Darcy, well, I just couldn't totally get into him but loved the daughters, I thought they were great. Loved the male cousin. It was pretty good movie, glad I rented it.

    Mr. & Mrs. Smith: Pretty blah for me. A cross between Prizzi's Honor and War of the Roses and didn't come close to either.

    Sky High: A fun view with some pretty good tongue-in-cheek performances. It was fun to see Dave Foley outside of Celebrity Poker.

    I was very surprised at Sky High. The scenes at the movie made it seem so blah to me that I didnt think I would like it. I put off taking my kids until I knew I had to- and really liked it! The previews just don't do it justice.
    Finally saw Crash tonight and loved it. I very seldom buy movies, but this one I probably will.

    11:14 - really good movie. One of those that has many situations going on at once.

    High Tension - a little wierd - very different.

    Skeleton Key - left me wanting more. Very good suspense movie and Kate Hudson does a good job in the role. The actor playing the lawyer has a younger Keifer Sutherland look to him, very handsome.

    Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy - a total dud. Maybe if I read the books I would have liked it better. But I found the whole thing boring and hard to follow.

    Christmas with the Cranks - uggh. Nobody goes through that much trouble for their grown kid. Well I wouldn't and I love my son dearly but this was way over the top.

    Mr. and Mrs. Smith - fun but a bit too much at times. I have to admit there was some pretty good chemistry between Pitt and Jolie. I found it ironic that Vince Vaughn who is in the movie, is now with Jennifer Aniston. I wonder if he spilled any details to her about whatever he may have witnessed on the set.

    War of the Worlds - Tom has been demoted in my eyes lately but the movie was good in spite of him, especially since I'm a Dakota Fanning fan. The son character got on my nerves, he was a real jerk. I would have liked the movie to explore the aliens themselves a little more but maybe the original didn't either. I tried to watch the original once on late, late tv but fell asleep before it was over. I agree with the poster above, that particular sequence went on wayyyy too long.

    Polar Express - I wasn't too keen on Tom Hanks doing all the grown up voices, or at least they all sounded like him. I also was tired when I watched it so I fell asleep here and there and thought overall it was a boring movie. It had it's cute moments but not a keeper for me. If there had been more variety with the voices then maybe...and the nerdy kids voice really grated on my nerves.

    March of the Penguins: Incredible!

    Ladies in Lavender: Good but not great. I love Judi Dench and Maggie Smith. Both gave their customary excellent performances, but the story, while not bad, wasn't outstanding.

    Borstal Boy - 2000 - Sean Hatosy, Danny Dyer - Brendan Behan, a sixteen year-old republican, is going on a bombing mission from Ireland to Liverpool during the second world war. His mission is thwarted when he is apprehended, charged and imprisoned in Borstal, a reform institution for young offenders in East Anglia, England. At Borstal, Brendan is forced to live face-to-face with those he perceived as "the enemy," a confrontation that reveals a deep inner conflict in the young Brendan and forces a self-examination that is both traumatic and revealing. Events take an unexpected turn and Brendan is thrown into a complete spin. In the emotional vortex, he finally faces up to the truth. Even though I saw it coming a mile away, I still got all choked up over the aformentioned turn of events.

    Soldier's Girl - 2003- Lee Pace, Troy Garity, Sean Hatosy - The true story of a young soldier beaten to death for falling in love with a transgendered nightclub performer. Lee Pace gives an amazing performance.

    Watched the Island last night, and the movie was VERY underrated and should have gotten more than what it did because it was a great film. What I actually found out what the Island was it completely screwed with my head.

    We rented Rebound last night with Martin Lawrence. I don't even know if that movie was even in theaters, but it's a great movie for kids. Even though it was predictable (superstar coach takes on misfit Jr. High basketball team and tries to turn them into winners) I loved it and laughed a lot during it. Great movie for kids!
