The furious movie watching has slowed a bit around here as we have been burned by a couple of the public's suggestions (you know who you are: Amy, Hellraiser, really?). To re-charge, I deviated from the list and watched Sleepless in Seattle 10th Anniversary Edition last weekend. Lots of scenes I didn't remember so either they added back some stuff or I have only seen the edited-for-time TBS version. Anyway, Rosie O'Donnell (pre-crazy) is excellent, as is Meg Ryan (pre-botched lip job) and there are a couple of hilarious scenes where Tom Hanks realizes the dating world has changed in the past ten years.
