    Watched Entrapment this morning.

    Catherine Zeta Jones at about 30 has to have been one of the most beautiful women ever.... not so much now though

    Oh I forgot to mention that I watched the 3rd episode of Top Gear US last night and it was a TON better than when they previewed the moonshine running!

    watched 300 tonight. It'd been a couple of years, so it was good to get back into it and appreciate how different it is.

    Oh and i've watched "Olive the other reindeer" about 3 times today because the kids love it!
    They're not really watching it..... more of background noise for them!

    got the Inception & Avatar blu-rays in today... debating whether I should watch Inception now (haven't seen it since the one time in the theater) or wait until I can watch it with my sister, maybe after the weekend.

    Maybe I'll just watch the Avatar special features instead... though I'm much less interested in those

    HP7 Part one in 3D. Great movie, but I'm not sure I would have spent the extra money on 3D if I had paid for the tickets.

    hadn't seen Inception since I saw it in the theatre shortly after it came out. Watched it this morning on blu-ray and it definitely holds up well. One of the best movies in a while..

    watched Narnia : Voyage of the Dawn Treader with my sister the other night

    keep in mind I have read the entire book series a few times as a kid and an adult, and am quite a fan.

    I didn't like a lot of what they changed in this movie.. some of it was minor and rather stupid, and some of it was pretty major (the "green mist" idea that has them sailing further into the sea is entirely made up... wasn't a big fan of that, but it didn't really change the movie either way). I didn't like how they glossed over the Lone Islands part (first stop in the movie). It's a pretty big part in the book, and it lasted all of 10 minutes in the movie. They completely changed 80 or 90% of the story for that part. That probably annoyed me the most while I was watching it.

    The rest of the changes weren't as drastic.. and more in line with the type of changes made in Prince Caspian.

    Overall I thought this movie was better than Prince Caspian. It was pretty good, enjoyable, and quite spectacular at times. Visuals were great as well! My biggest complaint with the movie is similar to issues with the first two: these are Disney films, and they apparently think kids aren't smart enough to follow along or stay interested without explaining every little bit of what's happening throughout the movie. There was almost nothing left up to the viewer to figure out... everything is handed to you. My sister and I both agreed on this.. it was just annoying. If they hadn't tried to make the movie so simple we both would have enjoyed it a lot more.

    Worth watching, I think, unless you didn't like the first two.

    I re-watched the season finale of Dexter because I was buzzed the first time I watched it.

    saw Tron Legacy tonight.

    I can see why a lot of people aren't liking it. While it's rather action packed the entire way through, the pacing is slow and drawn out. The movie is beautiful, but by the end you don't really care any more. The soundtrack is freakin' amazing, but by the end you just don't care as much, and it almost gets annoying because the music's pacing just reminds you that the movie is so slow. It's probably a little too geeky or fantasy-filled for a lot of people.. though I don't know why those people would have ever expected anything different. I did enjoy the movie though. It was filmed very well.. acting was great.. the world was pretty cool, etc. I just think I would have enjoyed the movie a lot more had parts been sped up just a little bit more.

    saw a midnight showing of True Grit last night. I haven't seen the original, but will soon. I was surprised yesterday to see that the movie had a high rating on rotten tomatoes, but then it's Coen Brothers, and critics always seem to like them.

    This movie was pretty freakin' good. It wasn't a blockbuster kind of movie.. no fantasy.. not a thriller and there wasn't any weird mystery...... it was just a good story with great characters and some genuine humor. The movie wasn't exactly a stereotypical western.. more just a good story that was set in that time, using some of the tropes of those movies when appropriate. The acting was great. The girl in the movie was amazing, or at least she played a character that was. Jeff Bridges was awesome as well. For the Matt Damon haters, he played a much smaller role, and I didn't even realize it was him until his second scene.

    The movie was definitely a little on the gritty side, and usually when you least expected it. At other times it was slow and methodical. I loved it... very well done in every area. Will probably buy on dvd or blu-ray at some point
