Yeah, that one is a classic.

The Vow. I joined my housemate in watching. There was a scene where they showed the males backside. So that was not cool but the theme of marriage and commitment was very strong and it was an emotional story based on a true story. Not for children.

I am curious, was the theatre as crowded as you expected?

There was almost no one in the theater we were in (by Detroit), maybe about 20 people on Friday night. I thought it was going to be packed; I bought the tickets on Tuesday.

It will be interesting to see how long it takes for people to get their confidence back. Copycat crimes are very much in the public awareness at the moment and considering all the attention the shooter is getting, it is probably wise to be concerned in general but the probability of it happening at a particular theatre at a particular time is so low, one's risk of death or injury is probably much higher due to just driving to the theatre.

I saw it at a small theater out of town and most other people probably saw it at a much larger theater nearby, so it was only about half full. But the movie has been packed since it came out at the theater I work at.

My last movie in the theater was The Avengers. While in the theater I wondered about people who might come in to a large venue like that and make use of it to pursue an evil agenda. Then a couple days ago I heard about the Aurora shooting. I just wish from the bottom of my heart that in a concealed carry state, there might have been someone there who hadn't expected trouble, but who nevertheless went prepared.

The whole thing is just too depressing and sad.

With the tear gas, unless the guy had been trained well, I have to wonder how effective they would have been, perhaps had even done more harm than good. Remember the shooter has a gas mask, not sure how they could have been equal to that. Hindsight may only seem clearer, it may not really be. Maybe the military people as IIRC at least one had been in combat situations might have had a chance, but who knows.

Not sure it was tear gas, although from the reports I have seen it might have been (although even a mere smoke grenade can cause the irritation that was described). As an Army infantryman, about once a year they made us go through an experience with CS gas ("tear" gas), walking into a building with active gas wearing our gas masks, then requiring us to remove the masks and draw enough breath to speak. The point of the exercise was to give us the notion that we definitely did not want to take off our masks, and possibly to get the idea of trying to function in CS without panicking.

No telling, though, as you say.

An oldie...but a goodie. I cried, again. Very touching story.

I had to do that training. Utterly miserable experience, but I understood Kipling's Gethsemane better.

Hello, one of the most memorable movies I have watched recently is called Life is Beautiful an Italian film . Can't remember who is in it but it is about an Italian Jewish family in WW2. The theme really is about a father's love for his son and the lengths he went to to protect his boy whilst in the concentration camp. Really moving, and a good watch

That reminds me of another movie I saw not long ago... The Boy in the Striped Pajamas.

What an ironic and dramatic ending... Like Schindler's List, I can't imagine what it must have been like being in a Nazi concentration camp.

I saw that, too, GG. The ending was shocking.

Watched "The Lightkeepers", this evening, with Richard Dreyfus. I hadn't seen him in anything in along while. It was very lighthearted. I liked it.

The Lead actor Andrew Garfield looking very cool. He was doing great job in this movie. Now i'm big fan of Andrew Garfield. Must watch this movie....................

I finally watched The Artist last night and from the beginning was completely memorized by it. I love silent films especially Buster Keaton, but this one topped the cake. We need more silent films to juxtapose all the loud ones.

I had put off seeing The Artist... I don't know why, perhaps the silent aspect... but now that you and Libs have mentioned it as being so good I will see it. I think it's out on DVD now... there's some films that need to be seen on the big screen and others are okay on rental. One thing that helps is today's TV's. Mine is only a 42" but then I grew up in the days when a 12" was really something. You all have to excuse me when I hark back (the older I get the more I seem to marvel at increased technology, etc) but we just have so many amazing things available to us today.
