So I've seen some really cute movies lately (cute is probably a bad choice of words) that I want everyone I know to watch. Because, after all, if you were here with me we'd pop some PopSecret Homestyle (which I apparently can't buy in Woodward any more, but this is MY fantasy) and watch them together!
*The first one is "Lars and the Real Girl." If you haven't seen it, rent it immediately. It is about a sweet, painfully shy, probably somewhat autistic guy's love affair with a doll and the community who loves and supports him through it. Hilarious and touching at the same time!
*The next one is "Penelope." It's about a girl born under an old family curse causing her to have a pig's snout where her nose should be. She must convince a "blue blood" to marry her in order to break the curse. Her mother is a riot.
*WallE. Not out on video, yet, but you might still be able to catch it at the dollar show! A cunning commentary on commercialism as well as the danger of losing ourselves to this high tech world we are creating. All, of course, cleverly disguised as a children's movie. Note: if you are obese you may be offended by this movie.
*StepBrother. Just kidding. Haven't seen it, probably won't see it as it has a high raunchiness risk factor, but the previews CRACK ME UP! Which probably indicates my level of maturity...
*Waking Ned Devine. Older film set in Wales about a small community in which a man wins the lottery, then dies before collecting his winnings. Hilarious!
*3:10 to Yuma. This is a dark movie about honor. Brilliantly shot and acted. Note: graphic violence.

Well, that's it for now as Miss Haven is pulling up on my leg and hitting the keyboard. I keep having to backspace and re-type!
