The List - Update Week 5

So this week, we saw Midnight in Paris, (on DVD), it's one of the Grammy nominees.  It was a Woody Allen movie with Luke Wilson and Rachel McAdams.  Interesting.

We also watched Moneyball.  I was pleasantly surprised by it.  Since it was about baseball, I don't know if anyone who doesn't like baseball would like it.

We also saw Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close.  It was really good.  Of the ones I've seen, so far it's the best.  Okay, so we also watched The Help.  Really good.  I recommend both of these movies.  One of the two of these should win Best Picture.

I also finished a book Caravans by James Michener.  It was written in 1963 and was set in Afghanistan in the late 1940s.  I enjoyed it.  I'll probably read more Michener this year.

Sounds like you had quite the movie -fest!

I'll have to hunt some of those movies up to watch. I usually end up with quite a list and then watch multiples in a weekend.

You;re going great guns with your goals Thea. I'm impressed.
