The movies.

This weekend was full of movies and knitting. The movies were:

* Undertaking Betty - This was by far my favorite movie this weekend. Take an unhappy housewife and a wacky undertaker and mix them together. Throw in Brenda Blethyn, Alfred Molina and Christopher Walken and you have a bizarre, hysterical movie. I would highly recommend this one for a good laugh!

* Brokeback Mountain - I really wanted to see this one, although I wasn't sure what to expect. The girls and I ordered Indian food on Friday night and watched together, and I was quite impressed. A good movie.

* The Squid and The Whale - This flick starring Laura Linney and Jeff Daniels was quite good, but very uncomfortable to watch. The film is about their marriage breaking up and the effect it has on them and their children. Quite good, but not a happy movie.

* Northern Exposure - Still hysterical and on this disc we got to meet Joel's fiancee Elaine. I'm eagerly awaiting the next disc.

* The Fugitive - I don't know how I hadn't seen this movie, but somehow it never came to be. I ended up watching it for work (looking for footage for a project), but enjoyed it while sitting on my own couch and knitting. A pretty decent flick.

Between all of these and Grey's Anatomy (loved it!) and West Wing last night it was a couch/TV-filled weekend. Too bad I have to rejoin the real world today.
