Post-holiday buzz

NSAH, talking about AB's impending appointment tomorrow morning:

"I hope he's good at the vet tomorrow... I mean, pediatrician's."

* * * * * * * * * * * * *

Well, I took a look today at my mid-November movie goals, and I am woefully behind. Of those on the list, I've only seen HP4 (excellent) and The Ice Harvest (a movie that tried to tackle at least 3 different genres and failed at all of them). But all is not lost. I am hoping to play mid-day hooky and go see Syriana some time this week. This city is dead in the week between Christmas and New Year's. And, though I have work to do, I have plenty of time to get it done. Plus, one of my artsy-fartsy movie friends will be around for the upcoming 3-day weekend, so I'm sure she'd be up for some Brokeback Mountain or Good Night, and Good Luck.

Hmm, I think it'll take another Netflix free trial period in the future... :-)

I sure wish I could go with you. Sigh, deadlines call.

Am re-reading Brokeback Mtn and getting babysitter in preparation for seeing movie. hubby not too thrilled about the idea, or King Kong for that matter.

I'm terribly behind on the movie watching too. Did see Jarhead last night...better than expected. Am hoping to hit Narnia tomorrow, and maybe Brokeback later this week. :)

I am dying to see Brokeback Mtn, but it hasn't made its way to the wilds of Maine yet... We did see The Squid and the Whale yesterday, though, and it was really good. Good luck on the mid-day trip to Syriana -- that's another one on my list.

Sounds fun!

We use Netflix since the last time we were in a theater was to see LOTR: Return of the King. I was 9 months pregnant for that movie, so I guess we were lucky that Baby H arrived late or else I would have to dig back even farther to name a movie.

First, I often confuse the vet and the pediatrician, at least in my spoken language.
Like mc, I'm still waiting here for Brokeback Mountain, but I did see "Good Night and Good Luck." What an absolutely brilliant and beautifully made film!
#1 Son has a classmate who is in The Squid and the Whale; he saw it the other night and recommends it, as well as Syriana. (And believe me, he has high-falutin' taste in films. Except for loving King Kong.)

Yet ANOTHER reason why I wish I lived near you. I would totally go see all these movies with you. I have no movie lovers around me! it is so sad!

Saw the Narnia movie this weekend with the nieces and nephews (too intense for J.) - it was excellent!

Also recommend Pride & Prejudice.

I still want to see Rent. Also Proof, though I can wait for the Netflix for that.

wait on "Brokeback Mountain", while beautifully shot, it is deeply flawed in its execution. I won't bore you with the details until later. I was really looking forward to seeing it and was disappointed.

"Syriana" was good, requires a lot of attention, so if you are in the mood to veg out, it's not the movie for you. Also a very hard c-storyline involving the death of a little boy (hard to watch).

Next on my list, "The Squid and the Whale". "Match Point" also looks great and is getting strong reviews.

Walk the Line sounds interesting but also like a rental.

Walk The Line as a rental is sacrilege here in Memphis. It's a must-see. Meanwhile, I haven't seen it yet. I would SO go to Brokeback Mtn. with you...it doesn't open here until 1/13.
