The Quiet American

Monday, February 17th, 2003

The quiet one is often the most dangerous.

Bottom Line: Recommended

I Capture The Castle

Sunday, August 24th, 2003

English charm.

Bottom line: Highly Recommended


Friday, September 12th, 2003

Like mother, like daughter.

Bottom Line: Recommended

Lost in Translation

Sunday, September 28th, 2003

Muddling through this waking life on auto-pilot. Dreams and nothing more.

Bottom Line: Recommended

Love Actually

Saturday, November 15th, 2003

Structured like a Christmas party sweets table, Love Actually is full of enticing confections without any substance or connection. Which is not to say that some of the tidbits aren’t wonderful.

Bottom Line: Good, but not great. Rated R for a British sense of humour.

Master and Commander

Monday, November 17th, 2003

If you’ve spent the last forty years or so complaining that “they just don’t make movies like that” anymore, then you’ll be happy to know they just have.

Bottom Line: Highly recommended. Sign me on for another voyage.

LOTR: The Return of The King

Thursday, December 25th, 2003

Maybe it’s a guy thing.

Bottom Line. Inevitable. (And not in a good way.)

Aubrey/Maturin Novels

Sunday, January 25th, 2004

Nothing in my history could predict I would love twenty books about two men fighting naval battles in the Napoleonic Wars, but I do!

Shrek 2

Friday, May 28th, 2004

Surprisingly funny. Well, we were surprised.

Bottom Line: Recommended for the whole family (even my Mom).

Three Kings

Friday, September 3rd, 2004

Crying over spilled milk. And blood.

Bottom line: Highly Recommended

The surface and beneath the surface
