    I just finished watching a movie on Hallmark, The Shell Seekers, and really recommend others to watch it. After it was over, I found myself running into my older son in the kitchen, and asking him, " do you think, I have been a good mother?" He looked surprised and starting laughing, but once he saw I was serious he said, " yes, the best " and asked me why I was asking that, I went on telling him, I was watching this movie and I am sure he thought... oh, that explains all, lol.

    Did I lose you because you don't get that station? Hallmark is a Tv station, where they play pretty good movies most of the time. Either classics or grammy winners or even, the mini-series. This movie, The Shell Seekers, was really good, not only for the acting but for the script. I didn't find it sad, I read where the book is supposed to be, but the movie was engrossing. I haven't seen UP, I watched the trail and it looks good, I would watch that, it reminds me of this one movie, which I can't think of the name, but it was cartoon characters, about life on a farm and the chickens talked. And, there was a mean farm lady and all the chickens were afraid of her. Are you familiar with this movie?

    I might stop at Redbox and see what they got for tonite. Any recommendations?
    I remember when movies would cost an arm & an leg to rent.

    Slumdog Millionaire - I had this movie in my possession for 3 weeks, I shouldn't have waited.
    Seven Pounds

    For sci-fi types:
    Push - was way better than I thought it was going to be

    I know what Hallmark is, i was kidding because they are usually "Sappy" movies.

    "UP" is a little sad at the begining but is a really good movie, it's not on DVD until November.
    I have... let's say a advanced copy (cough, cough).
    I would lend you my copy, but it's a little far to get it to you.

    I haven't seen Slumdog but would like to
    Seven pounds i thought was very long and slow.
    Push i tought would be a lot better than it was, but i would expecting a lot more going in and when you do that your usually disapointed.
    If you go in not expecting much it turns out usually better.

    Yes, Seven Pounds was a bit slow but I thought it was powerful. My wife completely broke down in that movie.

    You guys are all wrong. The best recent movie has to be Gran Torino. By far.

    I'll second that. That movie will probably go down as Clint's last great one as somewhat of a badass. I'm also biased, a Ford was a supporting character! ;)

    IMHO it's better than:
    Drips Oil Drops Grease Everywhere
    or
    Can Hear Every Valve Rattle On Long Extended Trips

    Ford stands for, Fix or repair daily. We owned a ford once. Only once, never again. I would had gleefully pushed it over a hillside. So, to get even, what I did was when the stock took a nose dive, into pennystock value, I bought a whole bunch of it. I am hoping it will go up and then, I can get back all the money I lost on that miserable little ford car.

    I am a sap for sappy movies Peter. :) But, my favorite are comedies. I am going to watch 7 pounds. If it is too sappy, I will turn it off. That is me. I don't even watch the news, I read the news from the net, that way I can pick or choose what I want to hear about.

    7 Pounds is not sappy but it is depressing.

    I watched it while eating dinner that my son made for us, sometimes, people's lives are as hard as what was illustrated in the characters. For some it is their reality.

    For those who care about others, the movie and its point isn't necessary, for those without compassion & or empathy, it means nothing and would be laughed at or ridiculed.

    One of the best movies to me, is an oldie, (1997) As Good as it Gets, it warm, funny and you walk away feeling good about yourself or striving to become a better person. ( Quote from the movie)
