  1. I’m ashamed to admit, you’ve seen 13 more movies than I have off of Roger Ebert’s Great Movies list. I feel exposed as a so-called movie buff (exposed, buff… yes, put it together).

  2. I have seen alot of the older movies, but less of the newer ones only because of some of the material in them. I’m not that old.

  3. This blog rocks! I gotta say, that I read a lot of blogs on a daily basis and for the most part, people lack substance but, I just wanted to make a quick comment to say I’m glad I found your blog. Thanks,

    A definite great read…

  4. You might consider adding Swept From the Sea to your list of movies?! Based on the short story called Amy Foster, by Joseph Conrad…Rachel Weisz is beautiful to watch and listen to…the panaromic shot of the land and sea as Perez & Weisz come up the bluff is breath-taking…and the story pierces the heart…deeply sad, but wonderful. I found your site by searching for info about Witch of Blackbird Pond. Your site rocks and so does that novel!
