Happy Birthday 'Ol Boy!

First off, it's confession time. I had all the good intentions of a dutiful Movie Mom to watch The Last Song this weekend, to give the lady readers of this blog a fresh perspective on how a woman would find the movie. I walked into Blockbuster, reached for the last copy of it lying there still and waiting for me on the shelf, but my hand froze, paralyzed before I could touch the cover. Images of my dear, sweet husband flashed before my eyes and I thought, "Can I really do this to him? Again?"
Now don't get the wrong idea, I don't normally pay too much mind to what he wants to watch because he's incredibly easy to please and very good natured about watching whatever I'm watching. But, last week it just so happened that he had worked a full week, did the dishes twice, watched the kids twice, cleaned the whole kitchen once, dropped off his own dry cleaning, picked up his own dirty socks and get this...he vacuumed the entire house, including the stairs.
I know right?
I put my outstretched hand back in my pocket and perused some more until I found Date Night. Oh, c'mon! I know it's no Bourne Identity but it's a compromise from The Last Song.

Anyhow, so since I don't have a review for you I thought we could celebrate one of Hollywood's best looking and accomplished 79 year old actors. It's Sean Connery's birthday today!! So let's review some of his great movies and maybe you can find within this list something to watch this week.
Please note: This list is not a complete list of his works just a sampling and is not listed in any particular order.

Danielle'-The Great Compromiser

"Oh, hey, I take the good with the bad, together. I can't love people in slices." (Which Sean Connery movie is that line from?)
