    Via Netflix, Smiley's People, Disc # 2 ,containing Episodes 3 and 4. Once again, a simply stunning performance by Alec Guinness.
    Whatever floats your boat

    You reminded me of my long neglect of these fine porkherpiece theater classics, I need to watch them again.

    Good 'historical drama' movie and I like it, maybe not prize worthy.
    Perhaps people didn't like it because there is much scenery and less talking and action, though I find those aspects rightly done.

    Arn (via netflix basic) ~ biopic of Arn Magnusson, Knight Templar, based on the trilogy by Jean Guillou; The Road to Jerusalem / The Knight Templar / The Kingdom at the end of the road. -- medieval saga. Period, 1100's - including the Crusades during the Battle for Jerusalem when Salidin was the Crusader's opponent. Two hours, not slow, not fast, but a pace I thought apropos of a the scale of this medieval saga.

    Zero Dark Thirty. A grim, violent movie, but a good one.

    Introduced my sister and her boyfriend to Mulholland Drive last night. Watching it again for the nth time made me appreciate its genius even more. Easily one of my favorite movies.

    ^ Going need re-watch that one, and Inland Empire.

    I saw Moonrise Kingdom yesterday. Much of Anderson's quirkiness can distract from the story, especially if you don't care for his brand of humor, irony, and in particular the way he dramatically culminates and closes his films. I found this less the case in this film than others, a classic and timeless tale can hardly become too cumbersome. It brought back some of my own childhood memories, as it probably will for many others, it is also one of the best romances I've ever seen on film.

    For some reason, I'd never seen Mixed Nuts until a few days ago. An excellent Steve Martin comedy, should've watched it during the holidays, tisk tisk.

    Sounds very interesting. I'll watch it one of these days. Thank you!

    I'm surprised how fast this was produced...wondering if The White House or mission members served as consultants.

    In light of Obama and H. Clinton interviews, 60 Minutes, etc., anything strike you as new info? Sea burial of ObL? The stealth chopper left behind?

    Dagon

    Middling Lovecraft "adaptation" from Brian Yuzna (producer of Re-Animator and From Beyond, both of which are light years ahead of this) with good lead performance, good practical effects, bad CGI and an overall third rate production.
