Now Back to Our Regulary Scheduled Programming

I did it. I have done the A-Z Challenge, with not so much as a hitch. I wasn't sure I was going to be able to come up with 26 things to post about, but I did. If anything, it will be an interesting look back on what I was doing or thinking about in April 2011.

Tyler Perry's: Madea's Big Happy Family was a very funny movie but at the same time it was very sad. Made me laugh and made me cry. I love when Tyler Perry does the Media movies.

The King's Speech came out on DVD. What a great movie. Colin Firth played Bertie very well, I recommend this movie to anyone, not just those who like British history.

I finally watched Mildred Pearce. I remember seeing the Joan Crawford version and thought it was mediocre, but this version, with Kate Winslet, was more detailed. Shown on HBO in five episodes, it really delve into the book that the first movie didn't even come close to.

I also watched all of the new Upstairs/Downstairs. I can't compare it to the original, but this on was very good.

Waiting in the wings....BLACK SWAN!!  Which I hear is disturbing. I'll let you know.

Great job on the challenge!

I have not watched the new Mildred Pierce yet. I'll probably catch it OnDemand. I loved the original version, but I'm a huge Joan Crawford fan.

I LOVED Black Swan. Can't wait to hear what you thought!
