I went to see Public Enemies this weekend and it was a good choice - action packed and good acting. I don't think it will be up for any Oscars but it was definitely worth the price of admission. Lots of violence and breath holding while Dillinger is being chased. And Johnny Depp is such a great bad boy. And, OMG, he is good looking. And as my movie buddy said, "the only thing better than Johnny Depp in a movie is Johnny Depp with a gun."

I admit I had a hard time with liking John Dillinger. He was a bad, bad person who killed people. But he was loyal to his friends and he really loved Billie and I felt torn. I didn't want him to die. That isn't a spoiler because, of course, going in, you know the he gets killed. You just wish things could be different.

You don't have to see it on the big screen but, if you're wanting to go to the movies, this is a good choice.

We have an actual Date Night planned for this Thursday! There's such a dearth of good movies out there, so I think we'll see this. As you know, I could watch Johnny Depp play chess for 2 hours and be perfectly happy.

About spoilers for history-based movies: my friend almost came unhinged when he was in the theater seeing Troy, and people gasped in shock - shock! - that the Greeks came out of the wooden horse and attacked Troy.

You're only spoiling it for the dumb ones, I guess.

That is hysterical.
