    Julie & Julia was so good! I wanted to eat everything in sight after watching that movie. Also loved Under the Tuscan Sun.

    I did not like “LIke Water for chocolate” movie much. I’d rather have the book. The book has an innate sensuality to its language, the expressions that was half-heartedly translated to the screen, IMHO.

    Surprisingly, I haven’t watched “Chocolat” (weird since I’m a Johnny Depp fan). I’ll fix that as soon as possible.

    I absolutely adored “Under the Tuscan Sun”. Diane Lane, as always, acted amazing. And the fact that the location was beyond dreamy, didn’t hurt either.

    Dunno about the last 2 ones. Julie & Julia was so amazing…now talking about foodie movies got me hungry, wow.

    My favorite is Julie & Julia

    Julie and Julia is my current favorite movie. I think that the movie portrayed the both Julie Powell and Julia Child so well. Amy Adams brought a sweet naivety to Julie Powell, which I gravitated toward, but others shied from. Meryl Streep, well, where do I start? Meryl Streep took the steps necessary to become Julia Child, this was not acting, it was being. Stanley Tucci and Meryl Streep also play off wonderfully against one another–their close relationship off screen helped their marriage onscreen appear warm, loving, and supportive. I loved every minute of this movie as much as I love food and cooking.
