    We rented it and my girls watched it with all their friends over and over. I'll have to go get it again to see the start.....just hate that!

    Movies never are as good as books, I think.

    I've encountered only one that's been perfect every adaptation - Jane Eyre.

    I agree. Maybe because the books I enjoy are often from the perspectives inside people's heads, and much of what's great isn't visual.

    I've seen 3 different adaptations of it. Read the book many times.

    Loved that movie Johanna. Especially the arm wrestling between Bella and Emmett. His face was a picture. Her enjoyment of being a vampire was epic. I prefer her in this movie for the obvious reasons. I have all five movies and the last two are on my iPad. I downloaded them from iTunes.

    I watched Lost In Austen yesterday.

    A Dolphin Tale: I just love the message of that movie. It reminds me of my experience with a vet who was worried that my cat Stewie's sense of balance would be impaired by the loss of most of his tail. Stewie, however, never saw a tree he couldn't race up and down, something I later discovered to my great relief. (I found him as a stray kitten with a broken and infected tail that had to be amputated.)

    A Dolphin Tale is next up in my to-watch pile from the local library. Tonight I watched Ghost Protocol, which was merely an average shoot-em-up; not quite a waste of time, 'cause there was nuthin' on TV, but 98% mindless.

    Last night, a friend invited me over to watch Skyfall in Blu-Ray on his eight-foot projection system. It might be the best Bond film I've ever seen. Certainly the most serious and dramatic, rather than satirical or cartoonish. Finally, a worthy successor to Connery. The cinematography was terrific, too.
