We just watched The Conspiritor and The Way Back.

We thought that both of them were great flicks.

Watching John Adams from Netflix. I am really enjoying it....

Paul Giamatti did an absolutely fabulous job with that role.
Adams E2 Euphonium (built in 2017)
Boosey & Co. Imperial Euphonium (built in 1941)
Edwards B454 bass trombone
Bach Stradivarius 42OG tenor trombone
Kanstul 33-T BBb tuba
Shen SB-180 double bass (we're talkin' strings, baby)

Funny, I thought the same thing a few days ago.  Brazil was brought up in an article I was reading on another site.

My picks:
The King's Speech
Raging Bull
Donnie Darko
Glengarry Glen Ross
Enter The Dragon
Howl's Moving Castle
Spirited Away
Princess Mononoke

Guarding Tess is a good one with Nicholas Cage and Shirlene McClaine. I like Steel of Magnolias too

If anybody is in the mood for a stupid low budget horror movie, Unholy staring Adrienne Barbeau was enjoyable if stupid.

No and no but she is pretty hot for what someone in their mid-60s (the movie had a year of 2007). There was a sex scene but no nudity.

Friday night I went to see Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter and I can recommend it.  I wasn't sure going in since it sounded like it could be kind of a cheesy representation that could be mocking of such a great man, but I liked it.  It kind of comes off like the new Batman movies with Christian Bale, except with an actual historical person.  And I was pleasantly surprised by the politics--all of the vampires were democrats.  Abe probably wouldn't be flattered by it but I think it comes closer to the truth than Oliver Stone's movie about JFK.
