The Kids Are All Right

A film about 2 kids and their lesbian parents. It was a good film. Many location scenes looked familiar....and realized the film was shot in my neighborhood. Extra points for that...lol...

We watched "Tales from Earthsea" yesterday.

It is a film from Ghibli studios in Japan.Hayoa Miyazaki's son directed this one (his first I think). The animation was great as usual and the story was too. Two thumbs up!

We own almost every movie from Ghibli studios. They are like a Japanese Disney but a little darker than the traditional Disney.

Parenthood was the last movie, last night. It's one of the movies I seem to watch anytime it is on.
Prior to that, Frozen.

The Hurricane. No, it wasn't about weather, it was the story of the boxer, Rubin "Hurricane" Carter who was accused (and convicted) of murder in the '60s. The evidence was tainted, he served, I think, 20 years, before he was released. The case was taken to the Supreme Court (after two trials in NJ) and not to the NJ court with new evidence. I gather that if you have new evidence, you are not to take the case to the Supreme Court for the State unless you have presented the same in a lower court. Denzel Washington played Ruben. It was a very good movie. We don't usually watch the out takes, but we did for this one.

I have not seen the movie, but I am very familiar with the Bob Dylan song of the same name about Rubin Carter. It is a seriously powerful song.
