I saw "Cass" yesterday night (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cass_(film)), and I have a double feeling: it is most definitely a shocking and touching story, and it is a piece of a decent work in cinematography; but I don't think I've ever heard so many "f-words" per minute (or per second) as in this film...  ::)

I watched Network on Netflix recently. You know, "I'm mad as hell, and I'm not going to take it anymore!"

Brutal satire and very funny. It also made me very glad I pulled the plus on TV several years ago!

I saw "Another Perfect Stranger" on a religious channel. It was a poorly acted spectacle, featuring a blonde pretty boy Jesus conversing with a girl about to enter art school on a plane with rants about how He hates religion and philosophically flimsy arguments supporting it. The "twist" that He's actually Jesus is pretty obvious from the beginning, and the miracle paintbrush at the end definitely deserved this smiley:  ::).

I also saw As We Forgive, a documentary about reconciliation between surviving Tutsis and the Hutus who killed their families. It's a very powerful film, and by far the most "Christian" of the movies I've seen today.

I saw True Grit a week ago.  I thought it was one of the better movies I've seen in a while.  I don't think I've seen the original.  I saw one of the Rooster Cogburn movies but Katherine Hepburn was annoying, pretty but annoying, and John Wayne is a horrible drunk.  They should have gotten Johnny Cash to do it.

For those war movie people out there, I started watching Tali-Ihantala 1944 again until the GF put the cabosh on it.  IF you can find it, big IF, then it is defiantly worth watching.  No M48's masquerading as Tigers in this one.  Real T34-85s, T26s (!), a KV, and some StuGs!

This evening I watched "In the Shadow of the Moon", a great documentary by Ron Howard about the Apollo Project.

I love one of Alan Bean's lines, about conspiracy theorists: "Nine times. Nine times we went to the Moon. Why would we fake it NINE TIMES?" :D

Just caught the last half hour of the ever-awesome "Ferris Bueller's Day Off". :)
Very cool!  As a child of the Eighties, this is one of my favorites of that decade.  You might also like "The Breakfast Club", "Pretty In Pink" and "Sixteen Candles".  :D
