Since we had so much time off for Winter Break (Adam 2 weeks, me a week and a half), I paid $14.95 at Blockbuster to rent as many movies as we wanted and to keep them for as long as we wanted for one months time. Well in the first week of the month we have rented at least 6 movies. Napoleon Dynamite was the catalyst in this because I knew we wanted to rent it as soon as it came out and I am horrible at returning moviews on time. I know it's not hard to do, but it is one of my faults that I have come to accept and live with. For any of you who have not seen Napoleon yet and if you enjoy independent films it is definately a must see! Another independant film we rented that day and did not enjoy is Danny Deckchair. Don't waste your time on that. It is an Australian film and very hard to follow. Adam watched what he has dubbed one of the greatest movies he has EVER seen...Anchorman with Will Farrel. I personally can not stand Will Farrel in anything (especially Elf) and stayed in my room while he watched that one. Kathy however, also enjoyed Anchorman. Kathy watched Wimbledon and said it was really good, I think I will watch that tomorrow. Tonight I watched what I feel could be an Oscar WInner The House of Sand and Fog. It is very intense and Ben Kingsley is a remarkable actor. Jennifer Connely plays the female lead, I would have sworn it was Demi Moore. She was really good as well. Adam's next rental goal is Dodgeball. We saw that at the studio before it came out. It is raunchy, but funny. I really enjoy Ben Stiller. Speaking of Ben, on Christmas Day we all went to see Meet the Fockers. I enjoyed that alot but didn't think it was as funny as Meet the Parents. Barbara Streisand and Dustin Hoffman were wonderful! Every once in a while I could see Captain Hook when there was a close up of Dustin Hoffman. My next will be Wicker Park and then not much else is coming out . I will have this until the 23rd of Janaury so if anyone thinks of something good to rent let me know. In the meantime, Happy New Year!


  1. I love long movie weeks. I want to see Napolean Dynomite and I am glad to know about that Danny Deckchair. Lyle just brought Wimbledon home for tonight so I will report back later.

  2. Woo hoo. You got your list up, now let's go for a new post. A month is a long time to wait and we need to know about Vegas and the campaign.
