  • Winter Holiday movies

    During the few days I had off over the holidays, I was able to catch a lot of movies. Some in the theater ( Avatar - excellent!; Sherlock Holmes - pretty good), but even more at home.

  • Snow Cake (2006)

    I picked this one up because the name intrigued me. I really didn't even read the synopsis on the back cover - just took it home and popped it in. The story is about an ex-con, Alex (Alan Rickman), who becomes entangled in the life of a hitchhiker, Vivienne (Emily Hampshire), he picks up while driving...
