    Yes Isa, it is Night on Earth.
    I loved that movie.

    American Gangster was great, much more worthy of an Oscar than No Country for Old Man.
    If you liked it, try Eastern Promises.

    My family is going camping tonight, so maybe I will rent All the Mornings...

    We occasionally go to the theater, mostly to watch live shows however. Recently it was Doubt - excellent. There is a movie coming out with M. Streep.

    I hope you aren't dissapointed with All the mornings...

    I was in my 20's when I watched it, and was entranced!

    Hope it's still good at this late stage!

    SO, the house is quiet, only the dog wants out. I m going to open some good wine and let you know tomorrow how I enjoyed the movie...

    On the second thought, I will probably let you know Monday, since tomorrow I am having some Spaniards for dinner, so I will be busy cooking and cleaning :-)

    Very good movie.
    I am surprised nobody has mentioned/recommended it before on this site.
    I am going to have both of my kids watch it, and listen carefuly for comments :-)
    In the main character I could easily recognized some of my own boy.

    Can I go off on a tangent? My son got in troube at school the other day for "inappropriate language during instruction". The word? "Hell". He was trying to explain to two other kids (who had apparently used the word but didn't get in trouble) that it really isn't a bad word because you talk about it when you talk about religion and it was "kind of like heaven but different, when you die".

    I agree that he shouldn't have been talking while the teacher was talking. I am annoyed that he got written up for it because, well, because, I'm not sure. Teaching her moral values? The other kids didn't get in trouble? I don't like the teacher anyway? Not that I'm going to do anything about it but I'm just curious what you guys think?

    When he showed me the report I simply told him that he shouldn't have been talking when the teacher was. Later, he brought up "hell" and we had a discussion about what it is and that took us into different religions and off we went!

    Have you notice the huge amount of threats that get highjacked (spelling?) in these forums?

    Obviously, this one does not count - it was meant to be highjacked from the beginning. I refer to the others, like from experiences in kindergarden to college in just a few lines LOL !!!

    And maybe it's because people like me are here participating in my first bulletin board without knowing the rules of etiquette.
