"Eight Below" (DVD), about eight Huskey sled dogs left in the Antartica over the winter to fend for themselves. A real tear jerker for us dog lovers.

Six survivors were finally rescued after almost 200 days.

The Dark Knight Rises, love that movie. Holy crap. When I saw it in theaters I have never been so excited over a movie before. Bane was amazing. They didn't make him seem like a giant idiot. Every time I watch I just get so excited.

Plus I learned how to do Bane's voice. I have this cup and I just do like his accent into it and its near perfect.

One of my largest clients is Digiboo. I have one of the electronic Kiosk on my desk. I can download whatever movie I want. Every Friday I usually bring home 2 or 3 movies to play on the big screen for family night on Friday or Saturday nights. For those that travel Digiboo is expanding. Let me know if you see one of the kiosk, I'll give you a code for a free rental.

I believe it was. I'm so reminded of our late Bo, that we rescued after he was abandoned, struck by a car, and left for dead. A sweet gentle giant.

The last movie I watched in a theater was "Skyfall". Thought it was an excellent addition to the Bond gallery.

Last movies I watched on DVD, I recently rewatched "A Fistful of Dollars", "For A Few Dollars More" and "The Good, The Bad and the Ugly."

I watched The House of Seven Corpses on TCM Underground last night. It shared much with Children Shouldn't Play with Dead Things which was release the year before.

At home, Patriot Games.  We plan a soon follow-up with A Clear and Present Danger.

In theater, The Hobbit.

Had to stay in a motel last week and caught a Liam Neeson movie from just after the title (grr) to about 20 minutes in just before checkout.  Set in Berlin and involving mistaken identity, possibly amnesia.  Anybody know what I'm talking about, or whether it (continues to be) any good (after the first 20 minutes)?

"Taken" is where his daughter is kidnapped in Paris for the sex trade.  This one starts out with him and his wife checking into a Berlin hotel...then he has to go someplace in a taxi that crashes...he wakes up four days later and finds that another man has taken his identity and his wife is going along with it.

Moose came over this weekend. We watched Dredd. Sci-fi action movie, based on a British comic called 2000AD. It was really good. Sylvester Stallone made a stinkburger version back in the '90s, which is only good for sharpening my riffing skills.

Just watched Here Comes the Boom with Kevin James (King and Queens).

Always liked Kevin James and I have to say this is the feel good move of last year.  Wonderful, funny, inspirational.

We watched War Horse yesterday.

It was OK, but not all that great.

I don't recall the last movie I saw on TV.  I have never Netflixed.  The last movie I saw in the theater was Chronicles of Narnia, the first one.
R.I.P. LC and Crockspot.  Miss you guys.

I love Liam Neeson's acting so of course I liked the movie.  :-) I was a bit bored during parts, but there's a satisfying ending.

AFAIC, War Horse is a chick flick with explosions.
