      Have you seen any good movies lately?   Country Guy and I are always hoping to find a good movie to watch.  There is so little on TV that appeals to us, but we love movies!  I would really appreciate it if you would post some recommendations, or send me an email and I will post them.
      My friend, Jane, recently recommended, "The King's Speech" and "Temple Grandin."  We watched "The King's Speech" last weekend and thought it was excellent.  I have rented "Temple Grandin" and plan to watch it today.  I'll let you know, but I am sure it will be great.  The clerk at the video store commented on how much she liked it as we were checking out.  I have also rented "The Social Network" to watch this week-end which I have heard is good.
     One of our all time favorites is "Second Hand Lions."  I also loved "Dan in Real Life," "Secretariat," "The Ultimate Gift," "Freedom Writers,""The Count of Monte Cristo," and "It's A Beautiful Life."  We recently watched a good movie, "The Encounter," which we had recorded earlier.  I know there are lots more, but I can never think of titles.  When I think of others, I will post them in the "Comments" below.
    One reason why I decided to post this is so that I could have a list to go to when we are ready to rent a movie.  That will be so helpful!  If you readers will comment with your favorites, or post the names of the movies you've recently seen I know many would appreciate it.  If there have been any you want to steer us away from, please do.  What a waste of time to sit in front of a bad movie hoping it will get better!
    I am looking forward to hearing your recommendations.  Thanks in advance for sharing.

I saw "Water for Elephants" in the theater. I read the book, also. Both are VERY good! Should be coming out on video soon, if it's not out already.

Temple Grandin is a really good movie. She was here in Omaha awhile back for an Autism conference. What a remarkable woman!

Lincy, Tanya and I just finished "Temple Grandin." It was excellent! I highly recommend it.

It was totally worth watching. She did an awesome job acting out the character!

If you haven't seen the National Treasure movies, we love them as a family. Same with Night at the Museum 1 and 2. Also, just watched You Again and it was a fun, cute movie. Good luck!!

I saw "Soul Surfer" in the theater and loved it! I also loved 'Secretariat' and others, which I will have to add later as their names escape me! I, too, like to be encouraged or inspired by movies. There is too much negativity already in the world, why pay $10 a ticket to see more!!!
