Post Olympic Blues

by Moe - 0 Comment(s)

I should be using the time to catch up on all the sleep I missed during the Olympics- I can't tell you how many mornings I was up to watch events live at 6:30 in the morning- and yes, I would also watch it again in the evening. Told you I am a bit of an Olympic junkie! But now, I seem to have hours of extra time on my hands, and although I do have cleaning up to do in my yard after Sunday's incredible hail storm, I am somewhat at sixes and sevens for movies. So I pulled out several of my fave book resources (yes, I DO actually read) and now happily direct your attention to the following:

Roger Ebert's Movie Yearbook 2012-- My fave reviewer- the man's output is staggering!

1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die- This one is a lot of fun---I surprised myself with how many of them I have seen- how about you?

Leonard Maltin's 151 Best Movies You've Never Seen- this one is also fun, and a fair bit more obscure

Leonard Maltin's Movie Guide 2012
