Jean TellerA friend asked yesterday what movies I had seen recently. I had to answer, “Not many,” and then she asked what I was looking forward to seeing in the next couple of months. Well, that prompted me to do some movie research for November and December. And I thought I’d share what I found.

First, some of the movies currently in theaters that you might want to check out: Cloud Atlas and Argo. I’m hoping to see both over the next two weekends. I may rent Chasing Mavericks, although the surfing action may need to be seen on the big screen, and Looper. Not much else I want to see at the moment, tho my to-rent list has definitely grown.

So what’s coming in November and December, you ask impatiently. Too many movies, that’s for sure. But it is the holiday season, after all, and studios want to get their films into the theater before the end of the year for Oscar consideration. So we movie-goers are left with a plethora of choices. Sigh. I already have the problem of too many books and not enough time. Now it’s too movies and not enough time.

  Cloud Atlas stars Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, Jim Broadbent and Jim Sturgess in a number of roles. 

One thing to share: A friend was recently wearing a T-shirt with a great saying. “Don’t judge a book by its movie.” I laughed, hope you did too.

  Argo stars and is directed by Ben Affleck.

Hi, Everybody! I saw "Cloud Atlas" this weekend. Good movie! Just don't expect it to make sense - park the logic at the door and go with the flow. It's worth seeing on the big screen, tho! And I plan to add it to my DVD collection. Hope to see "Argo" this weekend. Stay tuned! :)
