Mr. Wong in Chinatown

IMDb (1939) Boris Karloff. A murder case with some international intrigue thrown in. Routine, but fun. A few Perry Mason people.

Waitress

IMDb (2007) Some movie Leslie heard about. She bought a DVD in the grocery store. It's about PIE! All kindsa pies. It's Nutella time! The movie: It's an awful chick flick, but it's funny and it has pie. They try'n to mess with my brain. Small addendum: The writer, director and co-star of this film, Adrienne Shelly, was murdered before the film was released.

Daughter of Shanghai

IMDb (1937) Anna May Wong. Many familiar faces. A nice plot. Alien smuggling, murder, revenge. What more could one ask for?

Helvetica

IMDb (2007) The story of the font. Interesting but rather intellectual. Lots of Apple computers. Sleep inducing.

The Bucket List

IMDb (2007) I rented this one on the Xbox 'cause I knew Leslie wanted to see it. I must say, the Xbox did a fine job with it. Jack Nicholson, Morgan Freeman, Sean Hayes. It's good right from the start. But rather predictable. Finally made it to the list after a half hour or so. Now things should perk up. They did. Really sappy, but it was a good film.
