    I think I would like a 'touchy feely Death-Wish'

    I saw two movies this weekend, 'Zodiac' which got great reviews, but I thought it long and boring. I saw 'Lady in the Water' which I didn't have much expectations for, but really really enjoyed it.

    Just rented "Good Luck Chuck" and saw it this weekend. It was an ok movie. Got the UNRATED version so there's a lot of boobies

    Also, re-watch "Serendipity". Loved that movie

    I liked it. But my husband has just come off a Death Wish marathon. I think it was AMC or something that has shown ALL FIVE Death Wish movies in the last week and he's watched them all. So he was more into the action and less into the introspective stuff in this one.

    And god forbid that I said I liked Charles Bronson more than Clint Eastwood because after the Death Wish marathon, he did the Dirty Harry marathon after that and he thinks Eastwood had much better movies (except for Play Misty for me and Bridges of Madison County) than Bronson. I just said I happened to like Charles Bronson more, so he's been on a role trying to compare their movies to me and I honestly don't care.

    I have been wanting to see Zodiac.

    Yesterday I watch the entire A&E "Pride and Prejudice" miniseries based on recommendations here at the FORT. You know, the one with Colin Firth and Jennifer Ehle. I enjoyed it. The mother was too much, though, and I was getting tired of her screeching after only the first hour. The 2005 movie with Keira Knightley was like a Cliff's notes version of the miniseries. It's almost like the actors in the movie studied the series for pointers. They were actually very similar. I preferred the actors in the mini series for the most part. The father, Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy were, of course, perfect. But I preferred Jane in the movie.
    One of these days I'll stop being sensitive. Until then, I'll continue to be devastated on a daily basis. Life breaks my heart.

    Waitress - Cute movie. I liked how they used letters to the baby to give the viewer insight into what the main character was thinking. The guy who played Earl did a great job making him a detestable character, however I found myself annoyed at the doctor for having an affair when he had such a beautiful and loving wife. Andy Rooney's character was the highlight of this movie for me - he was fantastic as the old curmudgeon with a heart of gold!

    Sunshine - I am kind of on the fence with this one. I was expecting more of a typical action movie, so I was surprised at the almost horror movie turn that it took. I also thought it got kind of confusing and frantic in the last several minutes - I started losing track of where the characters were and exactly what they were trying to accomplish. The filming toward the end was blurry and choppy to add to the chaotic feel of the situation, but for me this filming style detracted from the storyline.

    This reminded me that not too long after the not-so-great movie Moll Flanders was released, there was a version of the story that aired on Masterpiece Theater (PBS) that was titled The Fortunes and Misfortunes of Moll Flanders. I thoroughly enjoyed this version of the story, and Alex Kingston (Dr. Elizabeth Corday from ER) was wonderful in the title role! Unfortunately they don't appear to have it through Netflix - I might have to drop them a note requesting it so I can watch it again!

    I'm watching Stay Alive right now. I like it so far.

    I watched the Jane Eyre BBC miniseries over the weekend. Ruth Wilson played Jane and is a newcomer to the acting world. She did a wonderful job as Jane, which I would find to be an extremely difficult character to play since Jane says next to nothing for much of the book.
    Toby Stephens was also such a good Rochester !

    Sommersby. Jodie Foster and Richard Gere. Wow! Not all about what I expected it to be about. Really, really good! I think when you choose a movie with Jodie Foster, it is seldom/never a disappointment!
