movie time

"Don't you wish there were a knob on the TV to turn up the intelligence? There's one marked 'Brightness,' but it doesn't work."
~ Gallagher

There is not much on TV as usual, so rent a movie and make some popcorn!

I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry with Adam Sandler and Kevin James.

Another very funny movie from Adam Sandler and company, laugh out loud funny! Great flick with a lot of familiar faces if you are a Sandler fan.

Fracture with Anthony Hopkins and Ryan Gosling.

Classic Hopkins, a smart cunning character who shoots his wife, but the young DA must prove it, and that is where the fun begins. Lots of twists and turns, very entertaining.

Mr. Brooks with Kevin Costner and William Hurt

Kevin Costner as the bad guy?

He pulls it off (along with the help of his alter-ego) in this psychological thriller. A little spooky and weird, but great suspense.

Georgia Rule with Jane Fonda, Lindsey Lohan, Felicity Huffman.

Fonda is great as always, Lohan's character was too much like seeing her on the nightly news. Lots of family conflict and skeletons coming out of the closet. A little too dark for me.

LOL at Gallagher's joke! I'll have to remember that one. I hear that shows like "Boston Legal" are well written...it's just that I'm not interested in watching them. I do like to catch old movies and documentaries.

I agree with your critique of "Georgia Rule" and "Fracture"; haven't seen the others. Do you subscribe to Netflix? We do, and it's great. I like Sandler and Costner, so will put them on my Q.

The quote from Gallagher was hilarious! (And I'm inclined to agree!) We actually have almost no television reception here, so we rely on movies for entertainment. (Other than books and friends and family, I mean). We used to get videos from a guy on Ebay for two bucks, but he's since gone up. But we are still enjoying the ones we have. Thanks for the recommendations.

I really love Anthony Hopkins. And you know he is in Beowolf which should be coming here soon. Thanks for the update.

we didn't even bother getting our tv turned back on with this last move. there's just not enough worthwhile shows on to make it worth the money. but we are big movie fans, and since we don't have a movie theatre in our town, we rent videos a lot. i haven't seen any of these and will have to check them out.
