I'd nominate Trainspotting as a movie with good narration. But I might just be biased (since it's Ewan).

Completely random and unrelated, but how great were the 1982 Golden Globe Awards? No wonder that year got you hooked on awardage. I wish I'd seen them. So many deserving winners honored:

E.T.
Ghandi
Ben Kingsley
Meryl Streep
Tootsie
Dustin Hoffman
Julie Andrews
Klaus Maria Brandauer
Jessica Lange

Yet another incidence of the globe getting it more right than the oscars. Happens almost every year now. It's always fun to see great comedy and musical fare honored along with the drama.

Anyway, carry on. Just a random shout-out to 1982.

Oops, I have my years mixed up. Klaus was in 1985.

But anyway, there, again, is ANOTHER example of the globes getting it right.

All they need to do now is cast Jamie Bell in that Daldry/Kidman movie and I'll be freakin' heaven!

Thanks for the linkage!

I owe you a million. And now it's a million and one.
