The Basket

IMDb (1999) A chick flick of the "Anne of Green Gables" genre. A tale of two German orphans in the Pacific Northwest in 1918. I'm not really watching. It's scenic. It's slow paced. It's schmaltzy beyond belief! Turgid flashbacks. Awful music. A fake Opera. Seems a bit overly melodramatic. Oddly enough, Basketball provides a unifying thread. I hope things get better. How could they not? Now, it's a basketball game! The kid saves the day! Well, sort of. Mushy, heartwarming end. Oy!

Bikur Ha-Tizmoret

IMDb (2007) aka The Band's Visit. A tale of fish out of water. Very strange. Very good. Get it. Watch it.

National Treasure

IMDb (2004) Disney. What a bunch of crap! Well done crap tho. High production values. We'll see how it goes. Lots of nice pictures and stuff. Looks good. But, it reminds me of CSI with it's "explain everything with video illustrations" style. Like I'm too stupid to "get it" without pictures. Oh, and the science and tech is pretty lame. Spotted an HP Product Placement! A real geek would have had a Mac. Nearing the end. Lame is the word.
