Ok, sorry I reposted about this, the website isn't updating fast enough I guess.

Watched Love Actually the other night. Still love love l-o-v-e it!! Today, we're going to watch the 'commentary' by some of the principles.. don't' know about you, but that's one of my favorite parts of a DVD film.. the 'special features' It's such fun to listen to the directors and actors take on the movie.

Just Three?

1. My favorite is a file that is a little cheesy, and is a poor transfer from film to VHS originally and then from VHS to DVD, but the story line is fantastic. I am fortunate to have been given a copy from a former forum member - drumroll please - "Eyes of An Angel". I saw it first on HBO when I was living in a town house shortly after moving back with my red male Hans.

2. It's a Wonderful Life - a great film making the point that our greatest strength and resource are our friends and neighbors, as well as we should never think that we don't matter for we really don't understand how our actions reverate through the lives of others.

3. Pure Country - If you are a country music fan or not, it's a good movie, making the point we should be ourselves. The Central Texas locations are real and Gruene (German - prounounced "green") Hall is a real place and even has a website today. Any one who has grown up in Texas will recognize the landscape, and has the most realistic accents of any movie ever placed in Texas.

I watched "Breakfast at Tiffany's" again last night for the first time in many years.  What a class act Miss Audrey Hepburn.  Who doesn't sing along with Moon River?

"October Sky" - about the struggles of a budding missile who was a teenager in the coal fields of West Virginia in 1957. Excellent story. I saw parts of it and "Remember the Titans" when excerpts of both were used in training sessions about leadership. Bought both DVD's.

"Hunt for Red October" - fascinating story and more so for a former Anti-Sub Naval Aviator (me).

"It's A Wonderful Life" - while cast at Christmas, it makes on think about the impact we have on others, even though we don't realize it at the time. We all make a difference with our interaction with others.

So many great classics and Hollywood wonders why people don't like their current output.

Just saw "The Road"... I cried for like a half hour after it was over. 

Also saw "The Book of Eli"... didn't cry... but still a good one. I highly recommend both.

I will jump in on this one we have movie days and lounge with the dogs and eat popcorn:

The Breakfast Club - molly ringwald, ally sheedie, emillio esteves, Judd ?

Meet Joe Black - update on Death Takes a Holiday with Brad Pitt and Anthony Hopkins

The Bourne series

Ironman -  best line when the overnight girlfriend is goading Pepper the assistant indicating she was just a lowly assistant still picking up tony's laundry and Pepper responds with "yes, and I can even take out the trash" and indicates that the door to leave by is over there.... Love that line

Overboard with goldie hawn - love her movies, The Out of Towners; First Wives Club etc.

The Ultimate Gift

And of course I have to include: Hocus Pocus - the witches were so funny especially Sarah Jessica Parker when they walk up to the road and see asphalt for the first time and feel rain.
