  1. I have a lot of movies to catch up with you... I did see Another Earth and I agree - good movie. Amazing scene with a guy playing a saw - how many movies have that?! This is the music from this scene on the composer's website (in case you decide to do a 'best music from a movie' category :) http://www.scottmunsonmusic.com/news/music-in-film-another-earth-soundtrack
    Of course I loved Harry Potter, too.

    1. I did not think A BETTER LIFE was very good, A-ron. While I clearly sobbed my way through that final scene, no doubt I'll cry during THE HELP, too, so clearly that is not a measure of greatness ;P

      Also, I'm beyond ready for CORIOLANUS.

  3. Well, I'm not really saying it was good, to tell the truth. I'm saying I really liked it. And I did. Very much.

    P.S. I cried a LOT during War Horse and I didn't particularly care for it, so I'm not really using tears as a barometer.

  4. Well, that is understandable. It is not possible to watch a film -- no matter how bad -- about horses and *not* cry.
