P.S. I Love You

Hillary Swank plays a 29 year old widow. Her husband dies of a brain tumor, but before he died, he constructed a scavenger hunt for her. The hunt involved letters that lasted up to a year and each ended with the phrase, "P.S. I Love You."

It is a chick flick for sure - and I loved every minute of it.

August Rush

This fairy tale is about an eleven-year-old orphan who was born a musician. He desperately seeks to find his parents and they are desperately seeking to find him.

Robin Williams plays the role of a creepy, wacky character. He is a street musician by the name of Wizard. What a movie! It was interesting and mostly I enjoyed it.

The Golden Compass

This movie is an elaborate fantasy. In my eyes, it was very different from most movies. It may be a little too scary for kids and adults may find it hard to take seriously.

Lyra, a twelve year old orphan receives the last remaining gold compass, a device that provides the truthful answer to any question. Too much for me.

Charlie Wilson's War

This is a very serious movie - the true story of the life of a congressman in the 1980's. The movie centers on politics and money.

Tom Hanks and Julia Roberts do an amazing job. No surprise, they are the consummate professionals. This is a good movie to see.

The Water Horse: Legend of the Deep

This is a lovely tale of loyalty and friendship. The movie reminded the critics of E.T. and I agree.

Angus, a lonely young boy finds an egg which he tends too. When it hatches it is a slimy, but somehow irresistible creature and Angus befriends it. The cute creature can only be described as a baby water horse - but it doesn't stay small for long.

It is a very cute movie and one for the family to see together.
