JANE: We spent so many hours on airplanes that had individual monitors with a choice of 200 movies, how could I not resist watching movie after movie…especially since I don’t get a chance to watch many? These notes are mostly for me, so I can remember what I saw…while being so out of it because of this long trip, jet lag, and an occasional half pill of Ambien.
Saw part of “The Artist,” which I’d like to rent and watch with Dad and Roy. It’s a black-and-white silent, Oscar-winning film.
“A Little Bit of Heaven” – a corny movie starring Kate Hudson and Kathy Bates – a modern version of “Love Story.” Wouldn’t recommend it necessarily; yet, for some reason I sobbed through the whole thing.
Slept through most of “What to Expect When You’re Expecting,” a movie that Koji recommended (for obvious reasons). 😉
“The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel” – any yoga teacher or student would enjoy this movie that takes place in India.
Mmmmmm…..yummy Navraton Korma on the plane for dinner. Tasty scrambled eggs with cottage cheese, fried tomatoes, flavorful home fries and spinach for breakfast.
Watched a DVD in Koh Phi Phi of the movie, “The Bridesmaids.” It’s a light, fluffy movie, that had me laughing hysterically throughout.
Koji recommended seeing “Hangover Two” and Lionardo Di Caprio’s movie “The Beach,” filmed at one of the lagoons we visited during the Maya Adventure.
“The Magic of Belle Isle” – a delightful movie, starring Morgan Freeman.
“Albert Nobbs” a touching movie starring Glenn Close as a male waiter.
“Love’s Kitchen” – a sweet movie that anyone would enjoy.
Oops…a book…not a movie…recommended by Koji: The War of Art by Steven Pressfield.
A book that I am reading now that I can’t put down: Tales of a Female Nomad by Rita Golden Gelman.
