Every week I've been watching both Willy Wonka movies. Or, as my daughters call him, Willy Wonko. They insist on watching those movies over and over. And over. And over. Argh!

The Gene Wilder one is sooo good, eventhough it deviated away from the book.

I'm currently watching a TV show on the Pope/Vatican. I've been watching pseudo-historical stuff all day on natgeo, history, etc. Some interesting stuff amongst all the bs. And, I never thought I'd see the pope just chillin' in a chair watching TV in his living room :)

One of the local evangelist stations has been repeatedly showing The Passion of the Christ.

How much did they edit it to comply with FCC regulations?

No, I meant a film with our co-believer Tom H.

Oh, nope, mostly just your typical stuff with Bart Ehrman, Crossan, etc.  I don't mind listening to/watching that Kirsti Copeland though...  :angel:

Actually I think he was watching the same thing I was on history channel, it was called secret access: The Vatican http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1880322/

Lion of the Desert - a movie about the Libyan resistance to the Italians invading their country that focuses on Omar Mukthar.

Jonah Hex - this was a mistake, a big mistake, a tragic mistake. Much like the picture itself.

Fahrenheit 451. As I like Ray Bradbury a lot.

Been on a foreign film kick for the past...13 years or so, so for me it's "Ajami" (honestly it only caught my eye because the director's name is Scandar Copti; yeah, I know, I'm lame), "Under the Bombs", and "The Counterfeiters", from Palestine, Lebanon, and Germany (respectively). I'd seen the German film in theaters and liked it quite a bit (still do, apparently). Of the two Arabphone films, I'd prefer "Under the Bombs", but I have a request of filmmakers who deal with this part of the world: Can you please stop treating any story that has Christian and Muslim characters interacting like it's some sort amazingly special achievement? It's embarrassing. "He's a Christian...She's a Shi'ite...and he's driving her around in his taxi because she pays him to do that! Because that's his JOB! Watch as she does not signal Al-Qaeda with the some sort of terrorist 'bat signal' to come kill him. What a groundbreaking film this is!"

Oh, and a subrequest: Stop making us all look like miserable people. Of course the Christian guy has a love scene (and I'm not calling it that because his cab is adorned with a "just married" sign at any point)...why wouldn't he? And of COURSE the Christian girl falls in love with a Muslim, pressures him to tell her father about them, and her father flips out because Christians are just so unfair and unenlightened about interfaith relationships! And it totally ruins the girl's life forever, because she could only ever love the Muslim guy! Now she'll never be complete! Wah wah wah. Why did I have to be born a Christian?  ::)

^ How did you like The Counterfeiters? I thought it was great, but pretty long! I'm glad that I saw the movie, though.


Just watched Out of the Ashes a few days ago and I was SO unimpressed. Bad, over exaggerated European accents, obvious Holocaust-on-a-Hollywood-set, bad script, etc. I can't believe it got such high ratings on Amazon.

Yeah, I really liked the Counterfeiters. I don't feel that it was long.

I don't have much of an attention span, admittedly. My friends call me the "TV girl" because I can watch 4 1-hr episodes (or more) in a row, but I can't sit through a 2 hour movie without getting antsy. Not sure why that is.
