Letter to Juliet...

Kirby and I went and saw this movie last night. Quite good but very predictable at the end and I didn't like Christopher Egan's pompous British accent - he's an Aussie for goodness sake!
(although I realise that was the exact character he was playing). Vanessa Redgrave was lovely in it but I found Amanda Seyfried a bit bland. But do go see it for a wonderful tour through Italy's beautiful countryside. I would watch it again on DVD but I won't be buying it for my collection of chick flicks. 7/10
I narrowly escaped (I hope, fingers crossed) getting a virus on my PC. I was after a list of songs from the soundtrack of Letters to Juliet and I clicked on a site that immediately sent the alarm bells ringing on my computer - flashing signs saying I had 10 viruses her and 7 there but my McAfee has stepped in and it all seems okay. I will take a lot more notice of the SiteAdvisor tags on websites from now on.
On my list for Sunday morning early viewing at 7am with a cup of coffee in hand and a rug on the couch will be Mona Lisa Smile (recommended by Little Jenny Wren) and then Blue Lagoon to follow. I never saw Mona Lisa Smile when it came out but the trailer that Jenny had on her blog made it look great. I'll let you know what I think.
Cheers - Joolz


  1. I don't take as much notice of the SiteAdvisor tags as I should. My Sunday morning will be starting with a cup of tea and reading the paper in bed and then quilting.

    Don't fall asleep watching your movies, it should be a good day to stay inside, rain is forecast.

  2. I have been wanting to see Letters to Juliet but might wait for it to come on dvd.
    Blue Lagoon I haven't seen for years:0)
    Enjoy your morning dvd watching

  3. Hey Joolz ! I was wondering what that movie was like..Im sure the tour of Italy would be so nice,so I will wait for the dvd.I have Mona Lisa smile,I like it.Im sure you will too.I rented George Cluney's 'Up in the air'.and wasnt impressed.George was as delicious as ever ,but the movie was s-l-o-w.
    I also wanted to let you know I have an award for you to pick up on my blog,lol..have fun with that :0) Enjoy your Sunday.

  4. I had wondered if "Letters to Juliet" was good...or if I could wait for the DVD to come out.
    Thank you for the review... :))
    Smiles and hugs to you,

  5. I totally agree with you on the film. Just a predictable love story and one I didn't take the husband to and make him sleep through. LOL I will have to watch the other 2 movies, I don't believe I have seen them! NETFLEX while I am working hehehehe.
