    This week we watched:

    Skyfall. I'm not a huge Bond fan. I like the movies, not love them. Loved Skyfall.

    The Hobbit. Loved it and I need directions to Middle Earth asap!

    One kinda-sorta older movie I can watch again and again is Battleship, for quite a few reasons. Great soundtrack, an amputee learns he can be a hero, senior heros get to "do it again", the women are strong/heros, the star is easy on the eyes icon_wink.gif and it has aliens. What's not to love icon_lol.gif icon_lol.gif icon_lol.gif

    Any favorites you care to share?

    We just rented "What to Expect When You Are Expecting." It was OK, I fell asleep before it ended. That is very unusual that I did that. I don't usually fall asleep like that. Anyway...........We went to the theater and saw "Identity Thief". That was pretty good. I seen it twice. Once with my friend, and then the following week with DH. I was entertained. I want to see "Oz", that looks good. I just don't want to go to the theater and pay those prices anymore. It cost DH and I $36, 2 tickets to a Sunday afternoon movie, small popcorn, and 2 small sodas. We can go out to supper for less than that.

    I haven't seen it, but I read the book when it came out maybe 10-years ago. The Life of Pi. The book was magical and from all the awards and reviews it seems the movie is too. Has anyone seen it?

    I recently saw "Oz" in 3D. Once again I confirmed that I am not a fan of 3D and wearing ill fitting glasses. The movie itself drug on a bit with some scenes seeming like they were going to last forever. I did enjoy the story line but would have been content to wait for the DVD.

    Ok.. I saw the Hobbit and yes I loved it...in 3-D the kid in me came out.

    Oz- I enjoyed it..3-D..just because..I think it's a movie that really needed to be to explain Oz and how it became so. You had to take it as a story.

    The Life of Pi- Loved it..absolutely loved it..I feel it's something that you can truly discuss as well as enjoy the beauty of. I was amazed at the cinematography ..just great. On a psychological and theological level I think this movie has alot to offer.

    Argo- Very good movie and did keep you on the edge of your seat at times with of course some slow times which were needed but the acting was good. All around really good movie. Tough selections out there. I still would like to see some more but will have to wait til they hit DVD.

    LOL Dib's, I have a map of, and directions to Middle Earth if you want a copy icon_wink.gif
    Actually, both were included with the leather bound editions I gifted hubby with on Christmas 1969!

    I was always confused as to why 'The Trilogy of the Rings' were made into movies before 'The Hobbit' was, since The Hobbit is the prequel of the Trilogy, taking place about 50 or so years before the Trilogy. icon_question.gif icon_question.gif

    Oh well......I suppose thats the director's and producer's prerogative icon_confused.gif

    (Showing my age here......was The Hobbit required 7th grade reading, and The Trilogy required 8th grade reading for anyone else?)

    I love movies, but honestly; I haven't seen a movie in 2 or 3 years I really really enjoyed. But, I have seen a bunch I liked.

    Life of Pie and Argo were good. But, I am glad I didn't pay to watch them.
    I like adventure, adventure; maybe a good comedy, but not stupid silly.

    But nothing comes to mind in a very long time.

    Argo and Lincoln. Skyfall.

    "Olympus Has Fallen" looks very good. It has Jeremy Renner in it. icon_cool.gif Early previewers say that it has the same feel as the original Die Hard movie. But it has Jeremy Renner in it. icon_cool.gif Morgan Freeman, too. But it has Jeremy Renner it! icon_cool.gif icon_cool.gif icon_lol.gif icon_lol.gif

    I just made my Christmas List icon_lol.gif icon_lol.gif icon_lol.gif

    The Hobbit was required 6th grade for me. When we moved it was required for 7th grade as well. I aced that test.

    Now here's a funny story. I had a Border Collie (Meghan). I was reading The Fellowship of the ring (late night, the family was asleep and I was in bed, age 13), the part where Frodo was yelling "get off the road". In the book it is a lot more detailed than the movie. The Wraith was "sniffing" for the hobbits, making his way down the hill.
    Enter Meghan.
    I had no idea she was asleep under my bed.
    She was having a dream.
    She was non stop "sniffing" at the exact time the ring wraith was.
    I about S*!
    And so did my Mother when I went screaming into her room rotfl.gif

    I love those books and will read the series every few years.

    Imagination is a terrible thing to waste. My oldest Grandson will be 10 next year. I bought him a "fake" leather bound "The Hobbit". I can't wait!!!!!

    My GF is raving about the movie too.
    She is purchasing as soon as it is released & bringing it along when she comes to visit.

    We missed Skyfall when it was playing here but we would both like to see it.

    I did go with a GF to see Life of Pi and thoroughly enjoyed it. It was a movie to ponder.
