I've been buying DVDs and actually watching them. Picked up My Favorite Year and Lilies of the Field, two favorites of mine. Hadn't seen Lilies in ages, and still like it a lot. It's such a gentle, charming story. There's still a big plot hole in the middle of it, when Homer has the big blow up with Mother Superior and drives away. He's gone for a couple of weeks, and then just shows up one Sunday morning as if nothing happened. Where did he go, and why the hell did he come back?
Other additions were A Merry War and Big Fish. I stopped watching War (aka, Keep the Aspidistra Flying) about a third of the way through, despite the fact that it has some wonderful actors, the lead character is just such an obnoxious, whiny git that I gave up. Fortunately, I only paid $6 for it. I need to watch Big Fish again, because I was running the dishwasher while trying to watch it, and I couldn't hear half of what was being said. It wasn't quite what I expected, but not in a bad way.
There was one highlight to the weekend, which was going out Friday night with a few of the Somervillains to celebrate helvirago's impending degree. That was great fun.
