  8. I didn't start off a Nicole Kidman fan, but once I saw her play Virginia Woolf, I became one.

    1. I neither love her nor hate her. She has some nice roles, and usually has amazing choices, but the problem is that most of the films she works in would be better with some other actress since she is overly cold. But I like her dramatic choices instead of blockbuster ones.

  9. So many great shows! Musketeers, Beta, Little Women, and Tarzan :)

  10. While I loved Little Women as a kid, I'm not sure it needs another remake. I have BETA on my wishlist for books - hope they do a good job of it! :)
