Channel Surfing

Ok, I've settled on a layout for this blog (for now).

We watched American Movie Classics last night, finding Celebrity Charades and Movie Club to be worth watching. That's saying alot, since summer and Friday means lots of reruns and not much else. We tried watching The Aviator - beautful movie, but I really didn't care for Hughes/DeCaprio as a character/actor - and Blade:Trinity - fight scenes weren't bad, but we like our movies with a plot - and then went channel surfing.

AMC was cool, and then we flipped to Turner Classic Movies, one channel up. I saw that The Caine Mutiny was on, and that Jose Ferrer & Humphrey Bogart were in the cast. I really only left it there to see Ferrer, the father of Miguel Ferrer, Dr. Garret Macy on Crossing Jordan, one of Vicki's favorite shows. We have an inside game where seeing someone or hearing a voice, we guess who that person is - and I wanted to see if Vicki could guess the resemblance. But I got into the story, and the movie was really good. We both stayed up to watch it, finally seeing Ferrer at the end as the JAG defense attorney trying to keep his client, who'd taken command from Humphrey Bogart, from being sentenced for mutiny.

I used to get into old movies, getting hooked on Hitchcock in high school, watching Jimmy Stewart and Grace Kelly and Cary Grant, taking a film class in college - but I'd moved out of it as DVDs and kids came along I guess. We enjoyed that, though, and now I'm scanning ahead for what those two cable channels have coming on this week - really want to see War of the Worlds with Gene Barry (1953) before the Tom "I'm So In Love" Cruise version comes out.

I think your red screen got stronger than a two shot expresso.
