and very late. Both girls were in school this morning, and the hubs is off work for a few days, so we headed off into a nearby town to do a little shopping. Of course we bought nothing but it was nice to be out on our own anyway.
Had an okay Thanksgiving. Being sick didn’t help. But we had turkey and all the trimmings, I made pumpkin pie, and we watched our Thanskgiving movies.
First was Planes, Trains and Automobiles, after which we had a long discussion of the genius that was John Candy, with analysis of our favorite Candy films.
And then…L.A. Confidential, which is one of the greatest films ever made. There is no limit to how much I adore this movie. Every performance in it is perfect. The plot is amazing. The look of it, the dialogue, everything. And freaking Titanic beat it for Best Picture. I’d love to know if that movie still holds up as well as this one. I bet it doesn’t.
And now we’re watching Raiders of the Lost Ark.
What are your Thanksgiving movies? Which John Candy film is your favorite?
