Not sure why I put it in our Netflix queue, but last night we watched the 2011 movie The Lincoln Lawyer with Matthew McConaughey. Wow! Great film. The story line was quite complex and held our attention every second.

Not the last movie but the very next.

I rented π on the way home from work today and I'll be watching it right after I pour myself a tall glass of club soda over ice.

So tired, hope I can keep my eyes open.

Showtime is free in these here parts for a week or so. I looked at what was showing. Not one thing appealed to me.

Ok I watched Life of Pi and really liked it.

The cinematography was beautiful and the story was great until the end.

That's not a criticism. It was a terrific story but it left me wondering.

Those of you who have seen it may understand what I'm saying.

A great topic for discussion but best left to PMs so as not to give anything away.

Feel free....

In the last three days we've watched three Oscar winners for the this year. I'm lucky to have been loaned the DVD's before they are available to the public.

Argo......Outstanding nail biting movie, well worth the win for best movie.
Silver Linings Playbook.........Interesting and well acted story. Very enjoyable.
Flight........How can you miss with Denzel Washington? Excellent story.

I agree with you about Life of Pi, jharis. It left me scratching my head too.

We watched John Wayne's last movie, "The Shootist." I have always loved that movie!

I wonder where Ron Howard would have ended up if he stuck with acting. He was very good in that movie.

Saw Russian movie "Hipsters", from Netflix, it is a musical, but gives an interesting prospective in the life in Soviet Union. If you care to know what a mess that was strongly recommended.
