Movies (reviews and trailers)

Star Trek is finally out on DVD.  It’s not as good as on the big screen, but I still really like this movie.  I think it is my favorite of the movies.  I would to get a copy dubbed in German, but don’t have a Region 2 DVD player (mom, they start at $25 on amazon…. hint, hint…).

Angels and Demons is also finally on DVD.  Simply wonderful.  I love the history in this movie.  I hope the movie adaptation of The Lost Symbol (the third in the series) is just as good.

Last night, I saw The Men Who Stare at Goats.  It was bizarre, but really funny.  George Clooney and Ewan McGregor did an excellent job.

Up in the Air (also with George Clooney) looks good.  As does The Maiden Heist.

Touch the Top of the World

March 15, 2009 at 4:40 am (Fun Stuff) (, , )

Several years ago, I read a wonderful book called Touch the Top of the World.  It is the autobiography of Erik Weihenmayer.  Who was the first blind man to summit Mount Everest.  It is a wonderful story.  And it was recently made into a movie.  We’re watching the movie right now, but so far, it is really good and well done.  So, if you don’t want to read the book, go rent the movie.
