Dammit, now I wish I would have added date and not worried if it was theater, DVD, or TV on my list...

L Sass said...

Did you like Little Children??? That is next on my list.

L Sass--I didn't love it... I thought there were some holes in the story, and I was a little annoyed with the voice-over narration between scenes (which I'm assuming was text straight from the novel)... but the acting was good, and overall I liked it.

L Sass said...

Damn you! I totally tried to see The Queen this weekend and it was sold out! And I still want to see Little Children. You're so ahead of me!

Oh, THERE it is...well, it makes more sense now that it was a list update. I thought you suddenly compiled a list of when you saw each movie, and I was wondering how exactly that works...The only movie I can verify the date of is for myself is Stranger Than Fiction, because I know I saw it the same weekend as you.

Thumbs up or thumbs down on Babel?
I think you should employ a rating system on the movie list like you do for books!

stefanie said...

You're right; L Sass--I should. I was actually just thinking that myself, but I wasn't sure it was actually useful, as my simple "Yes" or "No" indicator doesn't necessarily mean anything for anyone else. Then again, it doesn't necessarily mean anything for the Books list, either, so why should that stop me?? ;-)

Anyway, for what it's worth, I thought Babel was really good. Not a feel-good movie by any means, but powerful and well-done and all that.

L Sass--Done. (You ask and I deliver.) :-)
