Movies I've Seen Recentlh
I've seen two new movies recently

Lost in Translation is a marvelous. wonderful film filled with terrific performances. Bill Murray and Scarlett Johannsom play two Americans lost in Tokyo that find a special friendship together. Both are a bit lost in the bizarre situation that they find themselves in, and their circumstances bring them together in a friendship -- and I stress the word friendship -- that is beautiful to behold. The movie was marked be terrific performances by both of them. Murray gets an Oscar nomination. This is a beautiful film, filled with touching scenes, and a heartfelt relationship that we all can appreciate. This is one of the best films that I have ever seen.

Cheaper by the Dozen is a fun, family film. Marred only by a bit of of, ahem, allusion to some pre-marital sex, this film is a funny paean to the value of marriage, family, and love. I'd recommend this film to anyone. It's a great film that brings laugh, and a respect for family and children. I like it when Hollywood makes a film like that -- they rarely do, and when they respect the family as this film does, I always give them props for doing so.

Not everything coming out of Hollywood if terrible. Every once and a while, Hollywood produces a gem. I think they have with these two films. Both are worth seeing.
