i run a home daycare, they give me an excuse to see all the good kiddie movies~

Doubt

Meryl Streep, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Amy Adams and the rest of the cast were phenomenal. The movie was about an hour and 45 minutes long and ended too quickly. All that great dialogue and drama and the ending made it seem like the bell rang and everyone had to go home before they could figure out how to end the movie.

Doubt - Amazing film with great performances all around and a script that will not allow you to sit back and be a casual observer. As for the way it ended, I'm not sure how anybody could really expect to get answers from a movie called Doubt. Sister Aloysius had her suspicions but no solid proof to support them and the viewer is left with the same.

The Tale Of Desperaux - Cute and far more cheery than the novel on which it's based, but a bit disjointed.

Changeling - A bit disappointing actually. Good performances and a strong cast, with a fair amount of suspense, but it just didn't grab me the way I'd hoped it would.

State Of Play - Lots of action, suspense and a surprising amount of humor. Russell Crowe turns in a great performance and, as usual, commands the screen.

"Bombshell" -- Harlow, Tracy, Tone
Lots of engaging yelling & stomping of feet in the '30s manner, but not much charm. Even Lee Tracy slightly grates. Best scene: Orphanage adoption representatives visit the big Hollywood star in her mansion & craziness ensues.

Memphis Belle with Matthew Modine. Story about WWII B17 crew on their 25th and last mission over Germany. Based on a true story. Nicely done.

This movie isn't on DVD yet but I just got done watching it now on HBO....."Grey Gardens". Drew Barrymore and Jessica Lange were outstanding! Barrymore, I see a Golden Globe win for her in the next year to come! Did anyone else watch it? I loved it!

It was fantastic. I saw the play on Broadway and remember the doc. I felt so sorry for Little Edie and, in a way, for Big Edie. Interestingly, it appears the South does not have exclusive rights to faded beauty stuck on a plantation per Tennessee Williams

I watched Batman (the 1989 Tim Burton one) and V For Vendetta. Both on BluRay. Both looked superb.

A few more over the past couple of weeks.....

Let The Right One In. This will scare you! The English over-dubs
were horrible. Pretty good vampire movie.......FREAKY.

The Duchess. Rented this for someone else, but it was good if you
like these period pieces.

Jewel, The Essential Live Songbook Disc 1 & 2. These two concerts
are absolutely great. Joe Thomas produced these Soundstage concerts. If
you think he did a good job with Stevie Nicks, watch these and you'll wonder
why couldn't Stevie's have been released this way. Two seperate concerts,
interview and bonus video. And the Blu-ray version includes extra concert
video recorded at Red Rocks (I believe). I'll be buying the Blu-ray version.

Nick And Norah's Infinite Playlist. Liked the two main actors, but the
movie was pretty lame.

Role Models. Why did I waste my time. Very crude movie as one
would expect.

Rachel Getting Married. One bad movie. Has Anne Hathaway been
in a good movie???

The Road Home. Pretty good movie if you don't mind reading subtitles.

Ladies And Gentlemen, The Fabulous Stains. Somehow I had missed this
movie, as it was made in 1982(?). I liked it, kind of a Pat Benatar, Blondie, and
Go Go's type theme. Plus I like Diane Lane.

The Last Word. Winona Ryder stars in this one. It was an interesting
movie, very different. But they lost what made the movie stand out as being
different and went with a Hollywood ending. Why?!!

The Wrestler. Very good movie. Mickey Rourke does a wonderful job
with this role.

Cadillac Records. Very good movie. Great music. They get the dates
(years) wrong in some parts of the movie, but overall it doesn't hurt the movie.

Step Brothers. Some funny parts, but very crude.

My Best Friend's Girl. A big waste of time. I wonder if Dane Cook could
go 5 minutes without cursing? Kate Hudson should have passed on this one.

"Still Waiting..." (The sequel to "...Waiting") - Not as good as the first movie

"Zack and Miri (Make a Porno)" - By far the funniest movie I have seen since "Clerks 2" (Add to the fact I see alot of Debbie's personality, along with my own, in this movie - She'd loved it!)
