What did YOU do for date night?

Stewart and I settled in for a quiet night this evening watching 'The Battle of Algiers'. It was on the to buy list before and has only moved closer to the top after tonight's viewing. Tomorrow night, you ask? Maybe 'Indochine' or 'Dr. Stragelove'.

a Home Depot/Lowes date night is better. Mom

Yeah but that usually ends in us buying things we can't afford. Anyways watching a reenactment of the brutalization of the Arab-Berber population of Algeria is always a romantic thing to do.

Seriously though if you want some great insight into the quagmire that is contemporary US foreign policy watch the Battle of Algiers. It's a timeless film.

We just watched "Hot Fuzz". Hilarious! We love that British humor. (And yes, now you can have it back.)

Datenight- took the whole family to Trainging Table in celebration or consolation of the fact that we are not buying a home. Ended up at Best Buy soothing our pain with electronic media to escape reality and avoid human contact.

Pfft. You should have watched "He Love Me. He Loves Me Not."

That one's on our to-buy list. ;)

Jo Bloggity, if husband says its ok, you can have our copy. I had a bad taste in my mind for days after watching it. It's on my 'get rid of' list.

Hey I watched your skydiving video!! That was so super cool! I like when you said you almost threw up in your mouth the best. Can't wait to see you for Christmas.

We watched Battle of Algiers recently (within the last two weeks) for a date night as well. I can't believe how incredibly well done that movie was, it appeared as if it could have been made within the last six years (with the exception of the sound track). The film is extraordinary to watch as an American, it shows a perspective that despite Hollywood's "liberal agenda" we would never see today. Excellent date choice.

Have you all watched La Heine? You need to see that one (not at all about the same thing, just an excellent French film that is done exceptionally well on a fairly "controversial" topic).
