2009 and movies....


It is 12 days into the New Year and I have spent more than half of them in pain…
Slipped on ice and hurt my back. I think I did more damage
by getting my footing and wrenching my back then if I just fell…
On the bright side, I am feeling a lot better and trying to catch up on everything.
One of the things I have been doing a lot this year is movie watching…
Went to a few movies around the holidays and lately we have been watching a lot of videos.
Got a netflix gift card.
I love movies; I always have, one of my fondest memories as a child was watching the 4:00 afternoon movie
with my grandmother.
***
a list of the ones I enjoyed:

The curious case of Benjamin Buttons
I think the reviews said it all….
***
A wonderful surprise
was
The Duchess


I loved this movie about
Georgiana Duchess of Devonshire.
Among the descendants of her family are the present Duke of Devonshire (via her granddaughter), Diana, Princess of Wales (born Lady Diana Spencer), Jonathan Dearness and Sarah, Duchess of York (via her illegitimate child Eliza Courtney).

Boy did history repeat itself….

Mamma Mia!

Wonderful and fun….a happy movie…
Don’t miss it….

Older Videos…..

Mrs. Palfrey at the Claremont (2005)

Charming with a message …

On my list to see at theaters..

Inkheart…….I loved the book

The Reader

Defiance


And after winning 4 Golden Globes
Slumdog Millionaire

Do you have any recommendations?
Old or new…
It is going to be a long winter and I would love to hear
about your favorite movie or one that you think is a must see….
