  2. What a lovely cast. I agree. Thank Jupiter it's not a musical. I couldn't do the movie with Russel Crow and all that screeching. Turned it off 15 minutes in.

    1. I have it downloaded in my stash for two years now and still haven't found the energy to watch it :) Watched Light Between the Oceans last, it wasn't bad, although Alicia Vikander's character pissed me off dramatically.

    2. I still have that one saved to watch at some point, some day. Is it just me, or is commenting on blogger taking forever to go through? Half the time I can't even get it to work when commenting with my ipad :(

    5. it's been going on for a week or so and I see it is still going on today as well. 'Sending message to blogger...' and then you wait for a minute for something to happen.

  3. Another Les Miserables... Well, if they do it right, I'll be all for it. I'm with Theresa. The last one was beyond revolting. But hey, this is Hollywood we're talking about. The misses are more frequent than the hits, eh?
