Eating seeds is a pastime activity

This could be the 1st year that I've seen many of the movies nominated for the Oscars. I've been in a movie watching frenzy lately.

Before Feb. 22, I'm hoping to have watched Doubt, The Reader and The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. I probably will not see Frost/Nixon before then but hopefully will eventually.

I've seen:
The Visitor: Loved it. The best movie I saw last year.
Milk: You pretty much know the story, so the details and the amazing acting are really what makes this movie so spectacular.
Revolutionary Road: It was ok, but in my opinion, not that compelling of a story.
Slumdog Millionare: Fantastic and highly recommend. The best move I've seen this year. So far. It's still February.
The Dutchess: Good.

I'd also like to watch Wall-e, Bolt, The Dark Knight, Changeling, Rachel Getting Married, Vicky Christina Barcelona...have no desire to watch The Wrestler.

What does eating seeds have to do with any of this? Nothing. I just have that song stuck in my head.

I'm embarrassed to say that I've seen none of those movies this year. I did see (and LOVE) Bolt and Wall-E. I did go see Coraline the other night and may actually see it again. I honestly don't usually see only animated films!

I'm a big movie fan to!

I saw Wall-E and Bolt. I'm not sure about taking the kids to see Coraline, even though I'm a big Tim Burton fan. It looks a little scary for them. But if we didn't have to drive an hour and a half to a theater that has it in 3D I'd be very tempted. I think it's going to be Pink Panther 2 for Valentine's Day.

P.S. I have the YouTube video on while I type this, and you should see the looks I've gotten from Hub!

Your card is wicked awesome. Made my V-day, that and my sweet husband.

I do want to see The Wrestler.
