Bourne Identity.

A mostly good film, lacking blatant flaws to set me off -- decently paced, and yet I found myself wishing I wore a watch so I could see how far in we were at times.

It started like the opening to the series John Doe -- and that in and of itself kept me from going all the way into the film. It felt so familiar, and yet some things were a little too easy. He was found a drift in the med -- with a bank account number on him, which happens to lead to a safe deposit box with his passport and a bunch of dough in it. Feels kinda convenient to me. But once I got over that it was an enjoyable two hours.

As I've mentioned before, Genealogy is a hobby of mine. People have asked if there is a "cheap" way to test the waters with genealogy and see if you like it, so I thought I'd toss this up. Ancestry.com has a Free Family Tree Program to get you started. Once you find out if you like it or not you'll find that Ancestry.com has LOADS of wonderful resources you can gain access to.

Just one of example of the great resources available through Ancestry.com is Census Records:

Attack of the Clones

I finally saw the latest Star Wars movie tonight at a discount theater -- paid $1.50 and got my money's worth... mostly. There were times when Yoda's sentences were in the right order -- oddly enough I found that disconcerting. Wrong Order Words Must Be!

I have to agree with the critics who thought the romance was poorly done -- and I must confess I thought the movie could have been a great deal better.

Lucas had a writing partner on this script, and I'm kind of hoping he finds a new partner for the next one. Mostly because Yoda didn't even sound right. The voice of the character was missing -- though Yoda was the most "in character" of the lot.

Well, maybe tomorrow after I've slept on it I will feel differently, but this movie was such that I feel no great urge to see the final movie in the series.

Murder of Crows (1998)


I was looking around for stuff related to the CBS show Without A Trace as I worked on my page for it at PopArtsPlace.com and I kept coming back to Marianne Jean-Baptiste. I couldn't place why but in each episode I've watched she has struck me as so very familiar. And Finally I realized... a Murder of Crows!

She plays Cuba Gooding Jr.'s friend in A Murder of Crows and gives a wonderful performance!

Another very good reason to be watching Without A Trace week after week!

Happy, Texas


I enjoyed the movie enough I thought I'd toss up a link to a good price for folks who may want to buy it on line.

Happy, Texas! has wonderful deleted scenes with commentary by the director who explains that the scenes he deleted are from the film festival version, and he replaced them with faster paced lighter scenes (with more characters) to keep it a fast moving high budget film.

CARRINGTON



An interesting film about two people who fall in love, and yet refuse to believe they could ever have a healthy loving relationship together, so they each seek "good healthy loving relationships" to be in, while still finding time for one another. In the end no one is satisfied -- and yet you see the pain of refusing to simply give they love they shared a chance.

A very interesting and unique film with some wonderful performances.
