    Let's Talk Movies #35 – Sparrows and Panthers and Dinosaurs…Oh My!

    Alpha looks like it's going to be really good. I'm looking forward to seeing it as well. :) Reviews, reviews, reviews!! :cheer: Even if you just say one line about what you thought about the movie overall (and/or) a specific highlight you enjoyed. Or just rate each movie out of ten. I'll...

    Let's Talk Movies #35 – Sparrows and Panthers and Dinosaurs…Oh My!

    There was a story on the news a week or two ago about the movie posters for Crazy Rich Asians being vandalized. It was suggested that was due to properties being purchased in Vancouver as investments by wealthy people living in various Asian countries and then leaving the properties empty while...

    Bachelorette Season 14---or Becca's Revenge tour

    I can't tell you the number of times I have had to cut and paste something into google, followed by "acronym". I guess I just don't speak initials?? :drama:

    Let's Talk Movies #35 – Sparrows and Panthers and Dinosaurs…Oh My!

    I always sit in the back row to the side. So hopefully nobody even notices. I did look over to some people sitting in the middle of the back row, they didn't seem to notice me. I was directing the phone to the wall and the game I played was all black screen except for the colored circles of...

    Let's Talk Movies #35 – Sparrows and Panthers and Dinosaurs…Oh My!

    Saw Mission Impossible: Fallout today. Thought it was a really well made movie, but I guess I'm tiring of this series. A big part of me being in my seat was the free air-conditioning. (Will definitely have to get an air conditioner next spring.) So for the middle part of the movie, I ended...

    Let's Talk Movies #35 – Sparrows and Panthers and Dinosaurs…Oh My!

    LOL is hardly an eloquent argument. Where Daniel Day-Lewis out-performs Chris Pratt: 1. historical dramas/period pieces Where Pratt out-performs Day-Lewis: 1. comedy 2. action 3. contemporary drama 4. sci-fi Plus I have no doubt that in time a fifth genre will be added to the list: romance...

    2018 Summer TV New/Returning Shows

    I thought Castaways was beautiful. Not just with the incredible scenery, but the stories of all the people involved. And how nice it is to see people in these strange situations just being people instead of conniving their way into winning a big prize that they will lie, cheat and steal to...

    Let's Talk Movies #35 – Sparrows and Panthers and Dinosaurs…Oh My!

    I saw The Spy Who Dumped Me today. It was what I expected. More of an action-drama with a lot of funny moments rather than a straight-out comedy. Everybody in the cast was very strong, lots of great supporting performances, I always like movies where the leads are not afraid to surround...

    Let's Talk Movies #35 – Sparrows and Panthers and Dinosaurs…Oh My!

    Very interesting posts! I had a thought about Marvel movies (and similar big box office type of fare). If you were to pick Robert Downey Jr.'s best performance as Tony Stark and compared that to his Oscar-nominated work in Chaplin, would you say the latter performance was dramatically better...

    Bachelorette Season 14---or Becca's Revenge tour

    So we're supposed to believe that when Garrett clicked on the Instagram heart, turning it red (and thereby liking that post)...that he didn't know what he was doing? Like he's somebody's 80 year old Grandpa with his first cell phone? The things he liked, from what I've read, include: -...

    I fear I'm running out of movies to go see and our heat wave is going to outlast my movie-going options. :( Today I saw...Skyscraper. This one was definitely not on my To See list. I ended up playing a game on my cell phone. Not that the movie was bad, it's a great popcorn flick. I was...

    Let's Talk Movies #35 – Sparrows and Panthers and Dinosaurs…Oh My!

    I have watched three documentaries that were mentioned in this series. The first two I watched seemed like standard war-time documentaries of their time. The same with Prelude To War (1942, directed by Frank Capra), but it stands out as being more informative, more inspired and more...
