    I just finished watching Definitely, Maybe for the second time (it was on cable tonight). I liked it just as much as the first time. It is just such a sweet movie. I cry every time when the dad tells his daughter that she is the happy ending to the story.

    To get myself ready for the midnight screening of the new Friday the 13th tonight, I watched the original FTT and most of FTT2. I had already watched them last week but I wanted to watch them again when I knew I was going to the midnight show. I had forgotten (until I watched it last week) how many good "jump" scenes there were in the 2nd FTT. Yesterday, I watched Wishmaster. This was the 2nd time I've ever seen it. Kind of lame, really. I had forgotten I had already seen it and then once it got going, I just couldn't shut it off. It's like a bad car wreck. You want to look away but you just can't. LOL.

    I just got back from seeing "He's Just Not That Into You" and let me tell you, it was very good. A lot of what was talked about is sooooo true. There were some very funny lines and I was very pleased with the cast.

    This was a movie binge weekend for me.

    Friday, I went to see "He's Just Not that In to You". I really enjoyed it.

    Saturday - Revolutionary Road. It definitely deserves all the accolades it's getting. It was not a happy film by any stretch, but it was beautifully made and acted. Kate Winslet's performance was breathtaking. It's not that often than you can totally understand a character's thoughts by simply watching the face of the actor, but Winselt did just that in several different scenes. Amazing. I have not seen The Reader, but have heard many say that her performance in that is even better. IF that's true, the woman is even more amazing than I'd ever thought.

    Saturday night I also saw Taken. It kept my attention. Nothing highly unpredicatble or amazing, but also not a waste of time.

    Today I sent to see The Wrestler. I'm glad I saw it, but I can't say I loved it. I can understand what the buzz is about. It's an original film, and the acting performances by Mickey Rourke, Marissa Tomei and Evan Rachel Wood are all strong. The story manages to take a rather unremarkable man and make his story compelling. While I thought that Rourke's performance was strong, I can't say that I was as blown away by it as many are reviewing it. He didn't amaze me in the same way that Kate Winslet did. So awards-wise, I still maintain that Frank Langella should be getting all the trophies for Frost/Nixon rather than Rourke. I just couldn't get past thinking that essentially, Rourke was just playing himself.

    Does anyone watch documentarys? I just watch Girl 27 and it was really very good. Here is the discription from netflix. Underscores the difference in society between then and now. I am not saying the "casting couch" has gone away, it's just a different type of bed now as opposed to then.

    Author-screenwriter David Stenn investigates a notorious Hollywood scandal more than 65 years after it occurred, a rape case involving Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer studio execs and an underage dancer who refused to stay silent. Hired along with 120 other young girls to entertain MGM salesmen at a stag party in 1937, Patricia Douglas was violently raped and brought a landmark lawsuit against her attackers -- then mysteriously disappeared.
    I very much believe in rescuing animals, not buying them.

    I have been watching the "Eye's on the Prize" documentaries about the Civil Rights movement. VERY enlightening. No matter what you think you know, this documentary will open your eyes and show just exactly what it was like during that time. Hard to believe that people actually believed that racial crap. THe politicians and the law enforcement were just downright scary. It's weird, I knew it happened, I knew the gist of it, but actually seeing it and hearing it is another thing all together.
    Everyone should watch these, young, old, black, white and everything in between.
