Rented from Netflix "Same kind of Different as Me". Based on a true story. It is the kind of movie I will think about for a couple of days.
5 out of 5.

We watched The Martian last night - 5 stars from me. Great plot, acting was on point, kept me interested til the end, which is almost never happens. Also they didn't take too many liberties with plausibility, which is what ruins most movies for me. NASA says yes, under those circumstances the steps Matt Damon takes to survive are entirely feasible. Their big quibble is the dust storm being all raging like that, but it added to the movie and drove the whole plot, so what the heck.

I was very caught up in everything he did to survive, thought it very believable. It lost all credibility to me during the rescue and the one in a braillion chance of working. Same reason I disliked "Gravity". The physics of jumping between vehicles in space under those conditions ...... nah.

Not me - I wanted that happy Hollywood ending. I'd have been pissed if I watched that whole thing just to have him die at the end.
 
Welcome to Marwen
Taken from the true life experiences of an artist in upstate NY. Steve Carell was great for this role. Many films talk about PTSD and show someone having an episode, but this was probably the first time I actually got dragged into a PTSD experience along with the person having it. Can't help but empathize thru the whole movie for this guy.

It depressed me, but I did like the movie.

Watched 'Mary Poppins Returns' a couple of weeks ago with my sister. The best part of the movie was the end when Dick Van Dyke appeared. The rest of the movie was mediocre at best. :ohwell:

I watched 'Fighting With My Family' on the flight home. I was quite surprised that I enjoyed it so much. Definitely 4 out of 5.

Started to watch 'Holmes and Watson', but had to bail out after 10 minutes. The Ferrell/Reilly shtick is getting really old.

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood

:yay::yay: :yay:


It was really good!
Went last night with my friend who is a Tarantino fan. Neither of us was overly impressed with the story line, but the nostalgia factor was great. And of course, the graphic violence in the last 15 minutes - well, it was over the top. Pitt was good, DiCaprio really carried the movie. The scene at the Playboy Mansion was great, the Manson cult strange (but really made me think of how people could be convinced to do things they wouldn't normally), the music and the retro neon signs throughout well worth the ticket cost.

👍👍

Saw "The Art of Racing in The Rain" yesterday. Life as seen through a dog's eyes and a good family-friendly flick. Some good laughs and a few tears shed as I am a big animal softy.
