It was the cutest movie. The scenery was pretty. Gidget was a doll, and James Darren ... Oh. My. Goodness. What a hunk!

... And she got the GUY! Yeah!

Don't know whats the matter with me. Cant seem to get engaged in anything.

Started Transsiberian. It was good, Woody Harrelson, forget the others names. Husband and wife take the train from China through Russia and there is a murder on the way. I'd recommend it.
Don't know why I didn't finish it.

Started a couple of others on Netflix and didn't get far. I want some lighter movies and everything that streams on netflix is either fairly serious, indy, or outright too stupid/bad comedy...or I've seen it.

I loved that movie & have seen it a few times. Odd as Woody isn't my favorite actor, but he put the right amount of likeable, naive bumpkin into it to favorably play the role. Emily Mortimer, Ben Kingsley & Eduardo Noriega (complete eye candy, that one) rounded out this unusual story quite nicely. My favorite bit was the surly Russian train attendant, continually screaming at them whilst thinking tea solved every problem.

I feel you're pain. So many of us onboard know that feeling. I have about 40 DVDs, some of which I've seen so many times I could play each & every role with perfect accent & dialogue... the male & female parts. Still, in times when there's nothing else available I'll waste my time on, I'll pop one into the DVD & work whilst listening. Better a good movie over & over than a bad one once, I say. Besides, I could watch a young Al Pacino or Cary Grant on mute day in, day out.

Water for Elephants - way not as good as I expected. I've seen movie adaptions of a lot of books lately and was surprised how well they went with the book (The Hunger Games, Game of Thrones, etc) but this one was really dissapointing. Sorry. But I did like Reese Witherspoon's make-up and hair style

"The Woman in Black" with Daniel Radcliffe. I thought it was a pretty good old school gothic horror.

Tragedy strikes years ago in a rural town in England, and children start dying. Theo hangs out at this old haunted mansion and weird things start happening. Other than the last 30 seconds, it was a damn solid flick in my opinion.

Good to see Ratcliff as somebody else besides Harry..

Suspicious River

It was panned by many reviewers, But, in spite of the unconventionally dark plot, I found it compelling.
