Winter flicks: I haven’t gone to the theater all winter. Yes, I’m lame. I’ve also been really remiss about watching our Netflix DVDs, so I am doubly lame.

But I know many of you guys are much better than I am at getting out of the house, so speak up—any really good movies you’ve watched/are dying to watch? Theater or DVD rentals.

On a side note, my mother just sent me the DVD of Il Divo: Live at the Greek. I’ve never heard their CDs, but she’s in love with them.


  1. Oh my gosh, girl! Your cover is beautiful! so much attitude in it. Wow!! Can't wait to get a copy.

  2. "The Prize Winner of Defiance Ohio' is an excellent movie!!
    I'm going to tell everyone I know *especially all us "contesters"* *g* to see this movie. :-)

  3. Hey girlie. LOVE your cover!!! It's so cool.

    Rent the Guardian. Such a good movie. I watched it twice, and I never do that. Great characterization and character journeys. Love the settings and the way they really show how the Coastguard swimmers train and risk their lives. My favorite flick this year so far. The Holiday was surprisingly good too.

  4. Loved The Holiday! It's one of my new favorites. Saw Catch & Release - I liked this movie but I am a Jennifer Garner fan so I can be pretty forgiving. It's a great character drama, but it's not necessarily an exciting movie. Rented One Night with the King and enjoyed it (which kind of surprised me) but I wonder how those who aren't familiar with the story would react to it because as storytelling some things happened a little fast for believability. Still, being familiar with the story I didn't really mind. Some great images and it was shot well.

    Oh - and I love the new photo of you!!

  5. Awesome cover, and awesome new photo of you!!! Wow!

  6. Hey!

    Love your cover. Been a long time since I said, HI, too.


  7. Your cover would definitely grab my attention...nice job!

  8. Love your cover! And your new pic!

    Stranger than Fiction was pretty good.

  9. I was going to get a few others to enter your contest but with the move, I forgot all about it. I took some time out today but I've been going like the energizer bunny (haha) until I finally got a bad gold and the doctor told me to get more rest. Luckily the new landlord is very gracious in giving me time and help, because I'm one sore body and my mind's not too sharp either.

    I'm not even sure if I entered your contest. I hope I did. I certainly meant to because you had some fantastice prizes. But I'm sure God will see that those who need them most, be it for themselves or friends, get them.

    As for movies, before I saw "The Da Vinci Code" for the scenery, the last movie I saw was the last "Anna and the King". I definitely can not afford to go and the rent has gone up again too. Besides I really don't find the modern movies that interesting on the whole--at least not enough to spend a lot of money on them. I guess I got stuck in the 40s and 50s as far as most movies go.
