I can't think of anything to blog about so I'm just putting a cute pic of the boy up! I've been such a homebody lately! Reading and movies... that's my life! It's January I guess... it makes me want to hibernate!
Slumdog Millionaire - the best movie I've seen in a long time. It has everything you could possibly want in a movie. Loved it!
The Reader. Kate Winslet is absolutely amazing. She's going to give Meryl Streep a run for her money as one of the best actresses out there. There's nothing she can't do!
The Wrestler. I really didn't think I was going to like this one, but it was great! Mickey Rourke is the comeback kid, and I hope he gets an Oscar for his role as this sympathetic character.
The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. Liked it, but didn't love it. I always like Cate Blanchet. She's up there with the other Kate for me, but it didn't grab me the way I thought it would. Totally watchable though, and Brad Pitt wasn't too shabby!
I still want to see Revolutionary Road, and saw a preview last night for He's Just Not That Into You... TOTALLY want to see that one for some mindless fun entertainment!

I finally saw Wall-E yesterday. How can a computer generated robot make me cry? I had a very emotional reaction to this little guy. There's just something about a lonely robot who just wants to hold someone's hand that brings a tear to my eye! This is NOT a kids movie in my opinion. Yes, kids can watch it, but (depending on their age)the message would be lost on them, I'm afraid. My 4 year old nephew saw it and but found it a bit scary, but loved Wall-E himself. I hope this one cleans up at the Academy Awards. I think it deserves to be a contender in categories other than just animation. The environmental and political undertones give it a greater depth than most movies in this genre. Run, don't walk and rent WALL-E!

Believe it or not, it is snowing again. It is the last of it though. The warm front is moving in and it's supposed to rain later in the day, and hard! These photos were taken on New Years Day, and it was a cold one! At least the sun was shining. Henry has been so housebound with the bad weather, he was just running in circles with excitement to be outside. Actually, make that 2 of us! I've been sick for over 2 weeks with 2 different colds, and going a little stir crazy. I'm feeling a *bit* better today, we're going to go outside now and soak up the last of the snowflakes before they're gone!
