I just read about, "The Meat Trade" with Colin Firth and Robert Carlyle, about 19th Century Scottish serial killers Burke and Hare...with screenplay by Irvine Welsh. That movie ALMOST has everything I need in it to be completely happy, albeit in a guilty pleasure sort of way.
Good Conchord! I'm right there with you, /me! I kept reading your post and kept getting more interested. Throw in some FotC songs on the soundtrack and some free chocolate to eat while watching it and I think I'll have reached an entertainment high!
I watched "Taking Lives" yesterday on tv, while doing some sewing. Cute French actors (including Tcheky Karyo, who for some reason was in Greensboro on my birthday this year and dining at the table next to me), suspense, and a twist at the end (although I was suspecting it). Nothing spectacular, but still entertaining.
