The Road, finally!!!

KT and I have waited so patiently since November 25th...SO PATIENTLY!

The Road is finally in Birmingham at Lee Branch and we are going to see it after work today! This movie is based on Cormac McCarthy's novel of the same title. Other of McCarthy's titles that have been made into movies include No Country For Old Men and All the Pretty Horses.

I saw The Lovely Bones (also based on a book) last night and it was visually beautiful but lacked the heart and soul of the book. They took the events of almost ten years and condensed them down into about 2 and, unfortunately, it showed.

What movies have you seen lately? Theater or home, doesn't matter!

I finally watched Zodiac. I really enjoyed it, because I love true crime stuff. I also thought Robert Downey Jr. did a great job, as usual.

I have The Changeling ready to watch, but that's gonna have to wait until next weekend, probably.

The one starring Angelina Jolie? That is also the title of one of my favorite 80's scary movies :-)
