Free-Range Moviegoer

James Vaughn asked how my Oscar predictions turned out. Last Saturday GeezBob and I made our annual predictions over lunch at Langer's. A perfect score is 24 correct predictions. I got 10 right. GeezBob kicked my butt with 14 correct predictions.

Now that the Oscars are over I'm back to picking my own movies to see. The truth be told, I prefer having a checklist to work on.

Last night I saw "The Wedding Date" which was OK. I like Debra Messing and Dermot Mulroney was good. The story was unrealistic, but the music was good.

Tonight I saw "Hitch" with Will Smith. Since I saw Jada Pinkett Smith fall out of the "Hitch" box at the Sambadromo in Rio I felt obligated to go. It's funny and Kevin James completely steals the movie.

Not sure which movie I'm fated to see next.

1) 14 out of 24 is nothing to brag about;

2) I would have expected a bit stronger review for Dermott's work in the Wedding Date;

3) Constantine sounds like your kind of a flick to me.
