Now do not laugh at these ..I also Like The Housewifes of Orange County and New Jersey plus I am a Glee geek I love musicals and I love Lea Micheles Voice. I usually DVR these so when i am board I can watch them.

Hi Whit, I like the Housewives of Orange County too. It's the only Housewives that I watch...I didn't want to get on Housewives overload. Vicky is my favorite. She is so upfront and always tells it like it is!!

I know this is not a show or movie but my favorite thing is to watch is football on Sundays, Mondays and Thursday nights. That is what I really love.

Me, too, Whit, and it's a long time even to the pre-season.

I'm with you both!! I love football. Watching the Combine, and then the Draft helps a little bit, WW.

Hi USN....I do watch the SVU marathons. I like it
because there are so many episodes the same ones don't get run over and
over. I know everyone loves Scandal, but I missed the first season so
when I tune into the show I feel lost, plus they talk so fast it drives
me crazy. I also really like House Hunters International just to see
different parts of the world and how people live. History channel is
another good one.

How nice you get to spend so much time with
your grandson and he doesn't have to go to a sitter at such a young age.
Just think, he keeps you young. But I have a hunch you will probably
be ready for a break by early summer. Take care and enjoy the little
one.

Hi Rein! If you want to watch season 1 of Scandal to catch up, you could go on line. There wasn't that many episodes in the season because in debuted in Feb or Mar.

HA! I don't know about keeping me young, but he sure is wearing me out. To think, he's only 7 wks old, I can't imagine what he'll be like when he hits the terrible twos.

I hope you are not in the path of any those snow storms. Take care of yourself!

I saw Oz Friday afternoon. If you see it, be sure to see it in 3D. There would be little point in seeing it, otherwise. The story is cute and the acting is fine, but the plot is totally predictable. And even though there is a lot of neat-o gee whiz stuff in it, the 3D in Life of Pi was better.

Still, it made for a nice afternoon.

Thanks WW, we plan on seeing Oz soon. I like to wait until the theaters aren't so crowded. Glad you enjoyed the movie. Very Happy

Hi WW, smart of you to see the movie before the kids get out! I have a question, was it too intense for small children? That is what the warning says but I think my girls could handle it. I actually can't wait to see. We'll go during the spring break in two weeks.

ATN, how small are your children? There are big, scary things with huge teeth that come flying right out of the screen at you. They startled me enough a couple of times to make me jump.

Hi WW, they are 9 and 11. It sounds pretty intense in 3D, and my 9 year old does not like 3D movies anyway.

ATN, I'd guess this one would be too much for her/him, then. Maybe take her/him to a non-3D version so if all the kids are talking about it at school s/he won't feel totally left out.

Thanks WW, I appreciate your advice Very Happy I think we will see the 2D version. I love anything "wizard of oz" so I'm really looking forward to it. Would love to see the play, Wicked, one of these days as well. Anyway, thanks again, WW, hope you're having a great weekend. Very Happy

You're most welcome, ATN! I'd be interested in seeing how it turns out after your kids have seen it.

I hope you're having a good weekend, too. I'm retired, so every day is Saturday to me. Wink

Saturday is the day that occurs when you don't work today and you don't work tomorrow, either.

That's why all my days are Saturdays.

Yes I have those same kind of days and love every minute of it (most of the time).

I watched "Life of Pi" yesterday. I thought it was a great movie and highly recommend it.

Well, you'll have to go deeper than that. He begins by saying he's going to tell Yann Martel, the visiting writer, a story that will make him believe in God.

His first description of the shipwreck and his lifeboat has a Bengal tiger, a zebra with a broken leg, an orangutan, and a hyena. Soon the other animals kill each other until only Pi and the tiger remain in the lifeboat. After some rather breathtaking adventures, they finally come ashore off the coast of Mexico.

Insurance adjusters interview Pi right after he is found. They don't believe his story, and conclude that those on the lifeboat were Pi's mother, a sailor from the ship, and a cook from the ship. However, they can't prove it.

Pi asks them which story they prefer. Because it doesn't matter (the adjusters were interested only in what caused the freighter to go down), they humor him and say they prefer the animal story. Pi thanks them and says, "And so it goes with God."

How does this make anyone (such as the visiting writer) believe in God? Hints are that God likes allegory, and the Bible is filled with allegorical stories. While that may be true, how does this allegorical story make one believe in God?

The movie is visually beautiful, especially in 3D. The filming is just plain breathtaking. The acting is wonderful, both by the teenage Pi and the adult Pi. The story is well plotted. But I left with questions, not answers.

Can you enlighten me?

I also saw Oz, and also early. Went to the one o'clock showing. There was one older couple, one middle aged woman, and then i sashayed in and thought "oh goody, pracically have the theater all to myself just the way I like it"!
I saw it in 3D too which is the onoly way to see it, but I also had a choice of XD 3D and chose that (npt too sure what it even was). Well, the screen is MUCH bigger. It was two tories high and had a deeper curve. It was a child of IMAX.
After the movie I went into all the other theaters showing it (times were staggered). the regular 3D i could see without the glasses, but in the XD 3D it was blurry without the glasses on. 2D was just the mornal way of viewing and seemed exactly like the 3D without the glasses. Result: I was hppy that I sw it in XD. Everything jumped out at you more, however, the background seemed more unimportant and out of focus than in the other theaters.
Good thing I saw it last Thursday because on Friday the XD movie cahnged to Olympus Has Fallen and I have no desire to see mass shootings and blood and gore in XD 3D:Big and Small Screens - Page 2 3122983877

Hi Widder Woman! I'm sorry I am late in responding to you. Sometimes I only have brief moments to stop in. Very Happy I completely agree with you, I was left with many questions than answers. I did very much enjoy the movie but I have to be honest, when you watch a movie with my 9 year old daughter, SHE has a lot of questions! LOL So sometimes it can be distracting. I felt like this was the type of movie, at least for me, that I would have to watch again. We discussed this movie at the dinner table on Easter and my sister in law felt that the animals were really the people in his life (his mom, the cook). He couldn't deal with reality so he created these animals in his mind. Do you agree with this? I went into this movie not having a clue what it was about. It definitely threw me for a loop! I thought the acting was great as well. I wish I could enlighten you more. Maybe after I watch it again, we'll talk. Wink

I have to admit I like Say Yes to the Dress and Something Borrowed, Something New on Friday nights on TLC. I also watch Project Runway, The Voice, and DWTS. But I really love the old George Burns and Gracie Allen shows on Antenna TV at 11pm MDT. They crack me up.

For all the parents and grandparents out there, Parental Guidance is very funny! We watched it last night and I laughed through most of the movie. Very funny watching Billy Crystal and Bette Midler take over parenting of their 3 grandchildren.

I just watched Les Miserables yesterday. Unbelievable! Even though they sing throughout the movie, it does move along quickly and is very intense. I saw the play in NYC 20 years ago and loved it. This movie is great!
