That was actually my second choice. I had such a crush on Emma Thompson growing up.

I just watched "Beautiful Creatures" - My wife has a list of videos she wants to see and my job is to work the list down. So...I rent one for her and one for me. However, Beautiful Creatures had its moments - including scenes with Emma dressed as a civil war era southern belle. I must admit it was a bit.....alluring.

Emma with a Southern accent is the only reason I would watch that movie, I think, going by the trailer. I'm glad to hear it had other moments as well.

I went to see "Saving Mr. Banks" yesterday. I had read nothing about it prior - had only seen a few previews. It was much more serious, almost dark than I had anticipated. Talk about carrying around baggage - she had plenty to go around.

Mrs. Classic and I enjoyed Saving Mr Banks as well. Solid performances by Tom Hanks and Emma Thompson, though not sure they were academy award level. Was glad to see that they actually used real Australian children for the flashback scenes - somehow they manage to get the letter "r" in the word "no"

I thought the young girl was exceptional in her acting ability.

Back to the "F" Bombs from the subject. I saw Lone Survivor today and there were a LOT of "F" Bombs in the movie... More than 150 of them from what I've read. However, you show me a soldier getting shot, friend getting shot, other massive pain and suffering, etc and them not dropping the "F" bomb. That, vs. "The Wolf" and their 506, I can't imagine what that was like.

Wonder who has the time to sit and count F bombs anyway?
