Is anybody interested in going to see Avatar 3D tonight with Tim and me? We're thinking of going to Harvard Square AMC, where it is evidently showing at 7PM.

Short post here, but I wanted to put down a few notes on movies I've been seeing during this "family time."

Last night I watched _The Holiday_ (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0457939/) on video with my parents, grandmother, and sister. I found it rather good for the genre (romantic comedy). The characters seemed more believable to me than the usual fare. Strong female characters, too, which was pretty refreshing.

Today I went out with my sister and cousin to see _Up in the Air_ (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1193138/). Good movie. Somewhat predictable (though not quite as predictable as I would have thought halfway through), but very well done. Definite parallels with _The Devil Wears Prada_ (as I think was somewhat apparent from the previews). Different tone and general emotional feel, though.

I wouldn't mind seeing either of them again, but _The Holiday_ feels more like something I'd want to own.
