Robin Williams is terrific as a novelist who becomes a suspect. What is reality? Rated a 92 on the Tomatometer.

    I need to watch that one again. That was the first film by Christopher Nolan that I watched and he has since become one of my favorite directors and I have now seen all of his films. Definitely need to check that one out again, I recall enjoying it. Nolan is the man and is one or two more great films away from me considering him one of the best directors of all time.

    Nice!!! Our DVD player has been on the fritz, so we just upgraded to a BlueRay player with Netflix streaming. It was only $30 or so more than a RoKu so why not add in BlueRay as well. Streaming is awesome but the selection currently is rather poor. I can't wait until Netflix has a majority of their stuff streaming. Ideally, I can't imagine why they will not have 100% streaming eventually. The quality is not DVD or BlueRay but I could care less. You can always still have them mail you the DVD or BR for movies with a lot of fx.

    I saw a Blueray a couple of months ago that streamed netflix and Pandora, I was tempted to buy it. But then my frugal side showed up and talked me out of it.

    I just hope Netflix's prices don't increase because of paying out more royalties.

    I get Netflix streaming on my son's XBox 360...agree on the poor selection but the picture quality is pretty decent on the HD offerings.

    Quarantine

    Decent zombie/house of horror flick, starring Jennifer Carpenter (Dexter's sister in Dexter). With some very suspenseful moments, it's a real splatfest shot in first person POV but the camera stays relatively stable (unlike the nauseating Cloverfield). It's a remake of a Spanish film called [rec]. Enjoy with a nice Chianti!

    Lord, Save Us From Your Followers. It looks at the "culture wars" in the US from a pretty evenhanded perspective. Very good stuff.

    Just returned The Blind Side, not as good as the book. Date Night is in route.

    Recently purchased "Downfall"...the last ten days of Adolf Hitler. In German with English subtitles.

    The guy who plays Hitler is amazing (Bruno Gantz). You may be familiar with the movie via the many You Tube Spoofs of Hitler's rants....(one about befriending Churchill on Facebook, pretty funny....original soundtrack with altered subtitles).

    Anyway, historically accurate. I had just finished reading Citizen Soldiers (Steven Ambrose) and The Last Battle (Cornelius Ryan) about the Battle of Berlin....so the movie sort of capped the whole thing.

    I'm thinking that there's no way Eat, Pray, Love can be as good as the book. Thank you for the review of The Blind Side.

    Just returned Benjamin Button to NetFlix. We don't watch many movies. Next up is It's Complicated.
