    I just saw "I am Legend" too. I really liked it. Scary and entertaining. I thought it was better than the book too.

      I had no idea there was a book, or that there were earlier versions of the film. did was telling me that on the way out of the theater and I was really surprised. There were definitely long stretches of the movie where I was very uncomfortable. Lots of folks on the edge of their seats and a packed house. k

        I was attempting to do an 18 or 20 miler on the treadmill, and I wanted something to listen to on my iPod, to help pass the time. I happened to find the "I am Legend" audio book, and gave it a try. (I think it was over 5 hours long). I didn't even know the movie was coming out when I bought it. MTA: this was a few months ago...
          I just saw Water Horse with my six-year old daughter and her five-year old buddy. It was just a little slow at times for them during the first half, but I thought it was an excellent movie throughout. There was plenty of funny stuff early on and plenty of adventurous stuff later on. The effects were excellent but did not overpower the rustic setting in WWII Scotland. I think its primary audience would be boys under 12, but there is much for just about everyone else.

              Great! I hope to take DS (almost 7) later this week. He's been excited to see it ever since we saw the first trailer. I'll be happy to see all the Scottish scenery. I think I'm the only person who has spent time in Scotland and not seen Loch Ness. Roll eyes *smacks head*

                  I know...if I decide after my first marathon that I want more, the Loch Ness Marathon will be #1 on my list of destination races. Smile

                        Heh... did and I are both annoyed that GR moved their marathon up a week, which means that did won't be able to cheer me on--he'll likely be in Death Valley for the JDRF benefit ride. So he asked if there is any other marathon I could do around the same time...well, Loch Ness IS in the Fall! Evil grin

                          Joni and I took the boys to see "The Water Horse" today. Good movie, but pretty intense for little ones. The novelist was the same guy who wrote "Babe," which is a much sweeter story. I'd give TWH 2.5/4 stars, which is what other reviewers seem to be giving it. Babe I would give 4 stars. TWH had the most gorgeous scenery, though. The acting was quite good for the main characters, too. And those to-die-for Scottish accents. Ahh...the motherland. Smile k

                            You have no idea how much I love that stupid movie. I really want a pet pig. And some sheep. And a couple of border collie. And singing mice.

                              Don't forget the dumb duck...I'd even name him Ferdinand! Blush That movie is probably on my top 10 list of ALL movies. It's one of THE best movies to put me in a good mood no matter how crappy life may be at the moment. I even purchased a CD of the original composition that the theme movie is based upon...amazing how regal it sounds on a pipe organ. Big grin
