The Friday Five

Five movies I watched this week.

1. My First Mister, a coming of age story for a Goth girl

2. National Velvet The Young One and I shared a nostalgic moment.

3. Tron inside workings of the computer and computer programs. Blast from the past memories of tape drives and 15 lb. disk packs. As the Young One observed "You worked with refrigerators."

4. Attack of the 50 ft. Woman (1958), don't tick her off! I wish I looked that good at 5 feet something wrapped in a sheet.

5. The Day the Earth Stood Still (2008) I still love the original but the remake is growing on me.  I thought the acronym for Gort , genetically organized robotic technology, was clever. Gort was cool though I wondered why he needed prominent collar bones. Probably for the same reasons the original Gort needed metal under-roos.

What movies did you watch this week?


  1. I really need to get back to watching some movies. We just got Netflix too. And I watched ZERO this week.
    (But I did read 2 1/2 books) LOL

  2. Laura is good. Slightly over-rated film noir.
    Lost Skeleton - pretty funny parody of old monster movies.
    Lost Boys - Joel Schumacher's best movie. A little too 80s but a solid story with a good cast.
