    I still don't get the connection between him and the dead blonde girl, was she his sister? It also made the police look a little stupid with all the info they were given .They stand around looking at photos etc and cant find the things Jordan did on her drive up all on her own


    On the whole we liked it, I would have done the same as those two did with that scum.( maybe worse)

    I watched "Quartet" with Maggie Smith. What a sweet movie. It's so refreshing to see smart older characters and a script that's honest without patronizing or full of clichés. And the credits are almost as good as the film.

    Saw an interview with Quartet's director, DUSTIN HOFFMAN. He laughed when the interviewer told him that Maggie Smith seemed shocked that she had to drop the "F" bomb in the movie, as she had never done that before. Hoffman said, "She may have never said it on screen before, but it's one of her FAVORITE words in real life."

    I watched My Week with Marilyn today. I rather enjoyed it, however, I was surprised at how much Marilyn annoyed me. I think Michelle Williams did a pretty good job in ther role, but it was just the way Mariyn was so needy, self absorbed, rude and demanding. I just wasn't in the mood for it. lol

    A couple of days ago, USA ran Red, probably in anticipation of Red2 hitting the theaters soon. I had forgotten how very funny this movie is. I read a blip review that said Red2 is even better.

    According to what I have read, viewership was not high despite media coverage. We came across it but didn't watch. I'm sure it will be re-run and have sequels.

    We're doing an X-Men / Wolverine marathon this weekend. Hadn't ever seen them before, but I really want to see the new Wolverine movie next weekend, so it seemed a good idea to know the back story.
