I am stuck on Wes Anderson movies. I have one that I kept from the library for two weeks and then turned around a week later and rented it again. It all started with
that I rented last winter. I remember Shaun and I both sitting on the edge of our seats through the whole movie. I liked the settings and music and oddness of it and decided to look up other films that were made by Wes Anderson. Now I have just gotten around to my movie list at the library and started renting some of them. My very favorite is
This is the one I have watched probably nine or ten times. It's due back tomorrow.

I loved it even more!
I also watched
I thought this one was great too. Shaun didn't much like it. Sometimes I keep my odd movies to myself. Bill Murray appears in a bunch of Wes Anderson movies.

Tomorrow I am picking up a couple more from the library that I've had brought in from all over Davidson County. They are
It will be hard to beat the other ones I've seen. Oh, also The Royal Tannenbaums was a Wes Anderson movie. I saw it a long time ago back when I had cable.
And there's my movie watching as of late.
