Dirty Rotten Scoundrels. It was a lot of fun, but not particularly memorable.

I watched Black Swan early this morning.

So many potential tragic endings, and not the one I was expecting...

Funnily enough my avatar is inspired (stolen) from 'The Black Swan' a much older movie.

Black Swan is so terrible, I don't even know where to begin.

We watched O Brother Where Art Thou? a few weeks ago. I'd seen it before, but it's always a good one to revisit. Plus we're starting the Odyssey in Classical Studies this week, so it was rather timely.

I did enjoy the Kings Speech, and Colin Firth should probably get best actor, but I think I'm going to root for The Fighter for best picture.

Despicable Me. It was fun, and cute, but not a masterpiece. I must say I enjoyed all the minions.

I recently watched "Caddyshack" on DVD. I had never seen it before in its entirety, although I have suggested to innumerable people to "be the ball, Billy." In fact, my social persona does bear an uncanny resemblance to Ty Webb, being just as deceptive. The movie as a whole wasn't any better or worse than I expected.

My computer was unable to connect to the internet for a while, so I watched a lot of Netflix on the blu-ray player. What do I have to show for it? Here's a list:

The Maiden Heist, Hudson Hawk and Analyze that- all were decent distractions from my lack of real internet, but that's all.
A Fish Called Wanda- induced some chuckles
Malice in Wonderland- weird, but not bad
A Boy and His Dog- weirder, and time I would rather have spent plucking every hair off my body.
Police Academy 1, 2 & 3- I wish I could do sound effects like Michael Winslow. Then again, I think everyone who's seen these movies probably wishes the same thing.
I watched the Whole Nine Yards on tv. It's a good laugh. The best part was when the dentist tried to drill the patient's tooth, but kept shaking and missing. The look on the patient's face was priceless.
I bought Inception and the A-Team. Inception was quite good, but not nearly so confusing as everybody has told me. The A-Team was awesome. Fans of the show may disagree, but I've never seen it. Murdock nearly had me in tears. For some reason, the crazy movie characters quite appeal to me.
I watched a lot of Better Off Ted as well, and really enjoy it. That's not a movie, but I'm putting it up here anyway, so there.

And that's pretty much what I've been up to for the past 2 weeks or so.

Watched "The Bodyguard" today. I always liked that quirky movie.

I rather enjoyed 'King of the Hill' a Spanish movie/thriller in which two people are hunted by mystery gunmen in a woods.
