The Book Thief

Good movie with Geoffrey Rush, Emily Watson, and Sophie Nelisse set in Workd War II Germany. Sophie play Liesel - a young girl adopted by a Geoffrey and Emily who play an elderly German couple. Liesel cannot read and is quickly taunted by schoolmates for being dumb.

However, after her adopted parent's take in Max - a Jew hiding from the Nazis, Liesel befriends him, and they soon form a lasting friendship. Learning of her illiteracy, Max teaches her to read and write which will eventually play a key role in Liesel's adult life.

Good movie, starts slow but does pick up - especially like Liesel and her schoolmate/friend Rudy and their interaction with each other as kids! Do see this one when you get the chance!

Dead Pool

Ryan Reynolds as a comic book character that cannot be killed. Funny  quips and references to the X-men franchise. Suggestions of a sequel were noted as well.

Good movie but not on the first date rating. Do give it a watch when yo u get a chance!

Lucky Slevin

Watched this while working out on a treadmill. Has Josh Harnett, Bruce Willis, Morgan Freeman, and Ben Kingsley. Interesting story line that has a twist that is not so good for the bad guys.

Good movie but save for a rainy day.
