    Movie recommendation

    For anyone that is looking for good movies to watch, you might want to keep these in mind.

    1) Salmon Fishing in the Yemen - I might have mentioned this before, but it can't be overstated. I just loved this movie!

    2) The Intouchables - French with subtitles. Based on a true story. Rated R, but that's the advantage of subtitles, you can just skip over the bad words, unlike having to hear them spoken in the movie. I enjoyed this movie as well.

    3) Pitch Perfect - some of the language bothered me (as it always does!), but the music was wonderful.

    4) Mrs. Miniver - old movie from the 40's. I mention this, because recently I've discovered that a lot of people have never even heard of this movie. It is terrific!

    I'd love to hear about movies that others have liked as well.

    I liked Mrs. Miniver too. I saw Lincoln recently and thought it was excellent.

    For an older movie, I like Jezzabel with Betty Davis and Henry Fonda.

    I've seen new Disney's The Great and Powerful Oz twice now .... once in 3D and once on a small neighborhood screen ... and still fascinated by all the special effects! It will be one to see over and over again.
    Make it a scrappy happy day!

    The King and I starring Yul Brenner and Deborah Kerr - The Sound of Music starring Julie Andrews - Forrest Gump starring Tom Hanks and Jungle Book -animated. These are my favorite get rid of the cabin fever blue's movies. I've seen them all so many times I've had to replace them several times on VCR tapes and now on DVD they seem to last longer.

    HBO is currently showing "The Best Exotic Merigold Hotel" and it was very enjoyable. Here is a sneek peek.

    I'm looking forward to Les Mes being released on dvd this week. Hugh Jackman's voice was a pleasant surprise.
