Just watched the HBO Movie "The Normal Heart". Written by the original playwright Larry Kramer. It was an amazing depiction of the early 80's experience. It was beautiful, sad and inspiring. I hope you all take the time to watch.

"The only way we'll have real pride is when we demand recognition of a culture that isn't just sexual. It's all there--all through history we've been there; but we have to claim it, and identify who was in it, and articulate what's in our minds and hearts and all our creative contributions to this earth. And until we do that, and until we organise ourselves block by neighborhood by city by state into a united visible community that fights back, we're doomed." -Ned "The Normal Heart"

I hope the Star Wars movies have more plots, though, LOL!

and it was just announced that they are making 3 more Star Wars movies... Prequels and sequels all over the place. I'm looking forward to seeing them though.

Ooooh, no wonder there's so much hype here!!! I had no idea! (We live a sheltered existence in the VI, LOL!)

There are silhouettes of Gandalf and Bilbo and all, in various places around Wellington. Took me a while to figure out it was Hobbit stuff!

So someone made up new stories? I thought the original movies pretty much covered the trilogy!

It's a prequel to the Lord of the Rings trilogy telling Bilbo's story. There are going to be 3 more movies. The only returning actor is Gandolf. Peter Jackson is doing them.

What's the deal with Lord of the Rings? Is it a re-release in a revised format? 3D or something? Unseen footage?
