Under The Tuscan Sun

This was a very easy movie
to watch.

I put my feet up. My popcorn bowl sat in my lap and for a couple of hours I relaxed.
Easy to follow, beautiful scenery and a story that was loosely based on a novel by the same name. I smiled a few times. I enjoyed the movie. It was fun. It was easy.

Cold Comfort Farm

Quick, funny and a total delight!
I am still laughing twelve hours after watching this film.
Stella Gibbons 1933, satire is a funny tale.
I think I would enjoy her book.
I enjoyed the movie.

I missed this film when it was in the theatres.
Our daughter recommended it. I am so glad she did.
My husband and I watched together and laughed together.

Pan's Labyrinth

Pan's Labyrinth

This was a very interesting movie.
I liked it but it was very graphic.
I closed my eyes a few times and had to leave the room.
I always returned as soon as the violence was over.
The use of myth was very good.
Pan was wonderful.
The music haunting.
The story compeling.
I cared about the characters.

I was pleased Dreamgirls arrived.
I was ready for a lighter movie after watching dramas for two weeks.
What I did not expect was a musical drama.

I enjoyed the 60's references since I grew up during the 60's.
I remember Dianna Ross and the Supremes.

I liked the story. I liked the characters. I liked the music. I liked the actors.
I stuck for the entire movie. My husband drifted in and out.

I actually could see a television series based on a girls group and the relationships between the girls, their guys and their music. With the popularity of dance and music programs maybe it would be a hit. If I liked the characters and the music, I might watch.

I am ready for the writer's strike to be over. I hope they get a great contract.

Syriana and Traffic

We watch two movies this past week.
Both dramas about on going current issues.


I had seen Syriana before.
I did not mind watching parts of it again.
It reminded me once again how much I want solar power.
Traffic was very interesting.
A story about the war on drugs.
Both stories about greed.
Both stories sad.
I am ready for a light and airy romance
a musical or a nature story.
