watching moviesBeloved Girlfriend and I did some serious movie-watching this weekend, beginning with "Cowboys and Aliens" on Friday night. It should have been titled "Waste of My Precious Life". Under no circumstances should you allow anyone you love, or hate for that matter, anywhere near this stink-bomb.

Saturday night's movie was a classic, "The Terminator", which neither of us had seen in years. This new copy included tons of extra features, the best of which was an hour-long featurette including interviews with cast and crew. The most surprising tidbit was that Linda Hamilton had a broken ankle through most of production. Gutsy.

We also got a strong whiff of the magic of movie-making when Michael Biehn said he never played a scene with Arnold Schwarzenegger. Really!

Sunday BG and I enjoyed an afternoon out with a 3D viewing of Martin Scorsese's "Hugo". The opening establishing scene of Paris was a show-stopper but, for all of the book's magic, the rest felt a bit mundane. I had expected more of a fantastical production but it felt more like the Hardy Boys solving "The Mystery of the Heart-Shaped Key". Still, if you're a fan of the history of movie-making it was delightful watching the literally magical world of Georges Melies brought back to life.
