Our government butted in and now the stores have days in the year where they HAVE to stay closed. I work in retail, so partially I applaud this, but there should have been a couple of more days added!!

Renee, you've been finding some pretty cool movies! I haven't seen either, but they look interesting.
I don't go to the stores on Black Friday. However, I'll start my online Christmas shopping on Friday night. Since I'm in Japan and ahead of the US dateline, I can chill out on Friday morning & afternoon.

Perfect Creature sounds interesting - even though it's a common enough theme for vampire movies.
I absolutely don't do Black Friday. I'm broke enough this year though that if there's something good advertised I may break my hard and fast rule to avoid all stores that day. Risk life and limb to get something to put under the tree. When I say it out loud like that it sounds like an even worse idea. I do know other people who absolutely thrive on the crowd atmosphere though, so more power to them.
I'm looking for my inner athlete, but I'm afraid I may have eaten her. If I'm very quiet I can hear her screams of terror.
It's chilly here in AR this morning, feels really great! We're thinking of doing a bit more Christmas shopping today. and speaking of Christmas Shopping... do you "do" black friday? I do NOT when it comes to heading out to the stores, but I DO when it comes to online specials.
Perfect Creature - The vampire myth is given a stylish 1960s treatment, where a human cop partners with a vampire cop to stop a vamp bent on creating a war between the two "separate but equal" races. (IMDB) It has a cool steampunk feel also... which I like a LOT. :) www.youtube.com/watch?v=qc3SWpzl868
Have you seen these? I have and both are pretty good! :)
I know The Perfect Host is currenlty on Netflix Instant View, not sure about Perfect Creature.
Have a wonderful weekend!
