The Illusionist


Having depressed myself with Sick-O last night, I needed me some eye candy. Mmmm, mmm, I loves me some Edward Norton. The Illusionist is a fun flick. This photo isn't from the movie, cause the movie shots weren't close ups of the boy. Sweet dreams.

Thanks for the recommendation. Tonight I watched "The Last King of Scotland" and feel scratchy inside from it and depressed. I'll look for "The Illusionist"--though tomorrow I'll have Harry Potter to read!

Hmmm. Not bad.

OH, Jan. That almost final scene in the Last King ... I saw that in my dreams for weeks. YUCK! Good thing it was so well acted and interesting as a story, because that level of violence really does me in.

Yeah, this one was just kind of thoughtful and fun. Nothing great. Except getting to watch Edward, that is. I just love that boy. Although I hated the final scene in Primal Fear, too.

LJ, I feel better knowing how much you hated that last scene, too. AND I'm really glad that you're reading the HP books to your son. You're a patient mom to wait with him to find out what's going to happen!

Yummers - I likes me some Ed Norton, I do.

I've finished the Deathly Hallows, and while I enjoyed it, I think the closure of that saga is making me feel sad - why do even fictional characters have to "move on"? Sigh.

I'm currently trying to read my children The Order of the Phoenix. My 6yo is very interested, and my 10yo, not as much as I'd like him to be.

I'm trying to get him to see how much more "stuff" can happen in the book...but, I think his attention issues just overcome him. No nmovement (although, I'd happily watch him pace/bounce a ball/move around if I thought he was listening, you know?
