Happy Go Lucky It was billed as a light-hearted comedy but it absolutely was not. It was sad and the main character was annoying. If I hadn't been expecting an English Amelie I might have liked it, but it bothered me.

Watched "Valkyrie" last night. A good movie. I wish they had emphasized/explained a bit more of the underground movement to get rid of Hitler. Also, a small documentary added at the end about the memorial (rather than just a sentence or two of script) would have been nice.

A movie on the "Chiller" cable channel called "The Girl Next Door". Do not see it you don't want to be haunted for days .. I thought it was going to be scary but instead it was a really disturbing film about child abuse/torture. The worst part is that it's based on a true story.
I watched Sleepers the other night. Child abuse all over the place. Not at all what I wanted to see, but the ending was good. We took the children to see the latest Iceage movie yesterday. Forty dollars for the 4 of us! It was 3 D and worth every penny. The kids were spell bound. So was I.
Just watched "Breach" again on USA. Fascinating story, apparently rendered accurately in the film. Chris Cooper is one ugly dude but a hell of an actor. Can't help wishing there were more acceptance of such a thing in the case of actresses...

"Man on Wire" I'm fascinated by people who have a dream, a narrow one in this case, and live a straight-line life in pursuit of that dream. The story of the man who walked on a wire between the Twin Towers and the team that made it possible was great. I didn't care about seeing it but I'm glad I did.
