After six months of no activity, I finally put a movie in my Netflix queue. Loved, loved, loved this film - and apparently it won an Oscar.

I saw that in the theater a few years back and remember white-knuckling the arm rests. I need to watch it again.

Nothing like skinning grizz either...

Speaking of grizzlies, I've always been partial toward Timothy Treadwell's rant against the park service, in "Grizzly Man." That movie is full of... ...moments.

Susan, if you liked Grizzly Man, you should check out Herzog's latest, "Happy People: A Year in the Taiga." All of the footage is taken from a Russian TV documentary series, but Herzog definitely puts his stamp on it so it has plenty of those "moments." Excellent film.

Thanks for the tip, Sarah. Looks like Netflix doesn't have it yet, but I "saved" it for when it does become available.
