Interim: Films

What I watched while the blog was resting:

  • Follow Me, Boys (the kids loved this, even though by today's standards it's about three movies in one)
  • Blow (edited for TV)
  • Mobsters and Mormons (funny)
  • Spellbound
  • Holes (so good! I love Mr. Sir, mostly because we know someone just like him)
  • National Treasure
  • Gone With the Wind
  • Off the Map
  • Cipher in the Snow
  • John Baker’s Last Race
  • Seven Years in Tibet (fun to see again after reading the book recently, which is fascinating, by the way)
  • Star Wars: Attack of the Clones (five minutes thereof; hard to express how bad I think this movie is)
  • Pride and Prejudice (2005) (after initial annoyance--because who can do better than the 1995 A&E production with Colin Firth?--came to like this very much)
  • Master and Commander
  • Wallace & Gromit: Curse of the Were-Rabbit
  • Melinda & Melinda
  • Good Night, and Good Luck. (I thought this was an amazing movie; and were people smarter back then? 'cause the people on TV sure talked smarter!)
  • Curious George
  • Nanny McPhee
  • Eight Below
  • The Office (BBC, season 1)
  • William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet
  • Everything is Illuminated (really enjoyed this, though it has quite a serious ending)
  • Manna from Heaven
  • Bigger than the Sky
  • Alex and Emma
  • In Her Shoes
  • Dreamer
  • Just Friends (surprisingly funny in spite of a Saturday-Night-Live-like beginning that made me think it would just be annoying)
  • Prime (great acting by Meryl Streep)
  • The New World
  • Bleak House (BBC mini-series) (delightful Dickens characters with delightful names like Mr. Guppy and Mr. Skimpole and Mr. Smallweed)
  • Reality Bites (is this movie supposed to be a satire? 'cause it seemed like one to me)
  • Failure to Launch (I don't like Matthew McConaughey very much, but I enjoyed this movie; good secondary characters)
  • Freaky Friday
  • Over the Hedge
  • Cars (made me laugh out loud a few times)
  • The Pink Panther (2006)
  • Le Genou de Claire (Claire’s Knee)
  • Mr. and Mrs. Smith
  • RV (better than I thought it would be)
  • The Family Stone
  • Ushpizin (very good Jewish movie in Hebrew)
  • Proof
  • Gladiator (TV edit) (great music sung by Lisa Gerrard, of Dead Can Dance)
