    Hi Edward, the Starship Trooper's series (more than 1 of them right?) are about the closest to Old style Nazi Propaganda films I've ever seen. I've seen a few of ole Adolph's speeches, and I wanted to start marchin' and I don't even have a clue what the old boy was saying.

    I watched Big Jake with Maureen O'Hara and John Wayne last night. It's a lot better without the 10 minutes of movie and 7 of commercials on late night TV.

    I saw the Grey last night, the Liam Neeson survival movie.

    I thought it was fairly good, with only a few exceptions. The biggest being the artistic license the film takes with the wolves. I think there are a lot of ways the film could have shown the animals behaving more realistically and also the sounds they made were sometimes very clearly not wolves... I heard a lion at one point... no joke.

    ...aaaaannnd, Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows, with all those guys from the other one. Saw it with the family this evening. Liked the inclusion of Colonel Moran, the battle of intellects between Holmes and Moriarty, and the slightly non-canonical approach to the canonical Reichenbach Falls denouement.

    I watched "The Pianist" last night. The true story of a Polish-Jewish concert pianist (Wladyslaw Szpilman) who survived the Warsaw Ghetto and the Holocaust, hiding out in the safehouses provided to him by the Polish Resistence, while his city collapses around him.

    Wladyslaw Szpilman was one of only a handful of Jews who survived in Warsaw during the War. From a population of tens of thousands, they were reduced to less than ten.

    That is one of my favorite Lugosi films! What a plot! And for once, and only once, Bela gets equal billing with Boris...

    Just saw Appointment With Danger (1951), with Alan Ladd, Phyllis Calvert, Jack Webb, Harry Morgan, and Jan Sterling. Dedicated to U.S. postal inspectors, the film was better than I thought it would be, with Ladd as a postal cop infiltrating a gang which is planning to rob the U.S. mail. Jan Sterling was great as the gang leader's lazy, bop-loving moll, and it was very enjoyable to see Webb and Morgan as bad guys.

    "Funny Face" (1957) with our 8 year old daughter. This was her 2nd Audrey Hepburn film. She enjoyed the dancing in this one and was fascinated by the fact that Audrey Hepburn had taken ballet since she does too. (she's already seen and loved "Roman Holiday" and she is turning into quite a fan!) I love it! Just think of all the awful things an 8 year old could prefer and ours likes Audrey, Lucille Ball and old black & white western tv shows!
