 I've finally got movies here that I am pretty sure I'm going to like well enough to put my laptop down for, lol!  I love my laptop but it's been awhile since I've enjoyed a movie and paid complete attention to one...I always cheat with my laptop, lol!!!

Do you have shows or movies that cause you to tone out everything else...even your cell or your laptop?

From Netflix (snail mail):
The Guilt Trip
Anna Karenina
Silver Linings Playbook

 I know what you mean. I'm always trying to do both too. The only time I focus only on the movie is if it has subtitles. lol

Enjoy your movie time. Let us know if they're good. I've got a list going.

 I was never like this before CM LOL!
Oh I haven't seen a good subtitled movie in awhile.  My ds bought the one that The Hunger Games was based on.  I really want to watch that one but I have to be in the mood to read a movie :P
Have you seen
The Orphanage ?

 

I sure will ;)

 I haven't seen that one. Just judging by the picture, I won't be. lol...I'm such a big chicken whe it comes to movies. But I bet since it's subtitled I could get through it.

 Aww but it was really good.  It was more sad than it was scary but that's all I'm going to say in case you change your mind.  You wouldn't ever forget it once you watched it. :)

The Walking Dead, Dexter, Bones, Criminal Minds, SOA, Mad Men, Breaking Bad....All shows that take my full attention. LOL I love to watch TV shows, watch movies and read. Basically anything that can give me a mini vacation from life. That is why I don't care for reality TV.

 I love SOA and TWD but I don't always put my computer down for them, lol!  I probably need to put my laptop down more often because I don't fully pay attention to anything on.

 Hmm...gosh I don't want to give too much away but if you don't like ghosts then you shouldn't watch it.

 Yes, Ma'am and I sure hope it's as good as I think it will be. :)
Will they have it on PPV or do you have to Redbox it?

Is that the only show?  You are so good...I think I'm a t.v. and internet junkie! LOL!
