2008 We Salute You!!

Yes I am aware that it is now February and this post should have been out to the public in January, it looks like my resolution to not procrastinate this year is already out the window. Which I think is a good thing because nobody can keep all there resolutions. So failing this one just paves the way for my resolution to get back to my birth weight is looking like a possibility this year. So anyway I would now like to take this blog and tip my hat to the best and worst of 2008.


The Curious Case of Benjamin Button


Indiana Jones and the Crystal Skull*

* I am aware it wasn't that great, what can I say I'm not only a fair weather fan.

Mamma Mia!*

* I saw this in London, the best Sunday there for sure

I do have to say that it wasn't a great year for movies, I hope 2009 brings some better choices. At least the movies that I did like were for the most part light hearted and enjoyable.



I Am Legend*

* I really wanted to like both of these, yet after two showings all I want is 12 hrs of life back

Anne -
Where to start? Um, you really liked Crystal Skull? Hmmmm, I will need more info from you on that one...

Also, I say AMEN to your plug for WNTW...I put a link to it on my blog under the heading "stacy and Clinton" ... I wish they'd come to a dinner party at my house and help me with my wardrobe. Do you know they had a mormon gal on there once from Provo?
