Suggested Viewing/Listening

   MeiDei  Anyone watching "Grantchester" after Downton Abbey? That vicar is nice on the eyes & the character he plays is not bad either.

   BirdsNest  Last night we watched "The Last Samurai" with Tom Cruise. An exhausting film, I say that because this morning I feel like I have been punched all night.

   BirdsNest  Star Trek Into Darkness was last night's movie. We have watched it untold times. Our DVD library is large, but we have watched most of them more than once. Can't wait for warmer weather and yard sales where we can find $1 DVD's. Learned the hard way to open the box, check out the dvd for scratch lines. We have a couple that won't play because they are a mess on the back. I guess it is too much trouble to replace the disk after viewing. Now I know.

   BirdsNest  Thrift store had a pristine copy of "The Replacements" for $2, it came home with us. Gene Hackman was enjoyable and made us laugh. Needed that after yesterday-what a frustrating day it was.

   MeiDei  this probably could go on the travel wall but I thought it might get more views here:
Travel Alberta "This is the closest thing to 3D that you will see on a computer!
Amazing! 1080p Hi Def Be sure to watch on full screen and turn on your sound. Extremely well done and every scene leaves you wanting to see more".

   MeiDei  Here's the trailer for "Wolf Hall" BBC adaptation of the book by the same name - Damian Lewis stars as Henry VIII. It's showing now in the UK - hope it gets picked up by PBS.

   BirdsNest  Has anyone seen the movie "A Most Wanted Man?" We watched it last night, it was one twist after the next. I should maybe need to watch it again, it was good but in an unsettling way. Like you did not know if you really understood it or not.

   Balogreene  Music: Joe Cocker died today. He had a horrible voice (kinda Louis Armstrong-ish ), and looked spastic with his movements. But, he was a great bluesman. Check out his albums on iTunes, if you have the technology (I can't get over how good my iPod is ).

   BirdsNest  We were able to score a boxed collection of the Lord of the Rings trilogy-extended versions at the flea market for $2. We started last night with the first one, it was 2 dvd's long and really lots of extra scenes making it more enjoyable than the one released to the theaters. There are also 2 discs with interviews and how they did the movie, that kind if stuff. We rarely watch that part of any dvd, but after the other 2 movies are viewed we may go back and watch those. I found the scenery to be so beautiful, maybe some of it is computer generated, but that is interesting as well.

   Balogreene  I also don't watch the interviews, whatever. But, I do love the extended version. Some of the stuff they cut out, to make the theaters happy, helped the story. It is a wonderful experience to watch these. So amazing you can't tell what is CGI, and what is real. Will see the last Hobbit movie this week while I am on vacation, and our theater has a $5 price before noon.
