We watched Life of Pi.

It was good, not sure if I liked it though.

I liked the special effects. I thought they were excellent. Story was quite interesting. Something missing in between.Tried to read the book first just couldn't finish it.

We watched an old, well now it's old, Clint Eastwood movie last night, Unforgiven. We really like Eastwood and it was a very good film. Done in 1992, which would've made Clint Eastwood in his 60s. Not bad. Good to see there's hope for us old farts.

Haven't been to a movie in the theaters in quite a few years, but we're thinking about going to see The Butler. My brother saw it about a week ago and enjoyed it. We'll see. We can always put it on our Netflix list. It seems as though it takes no time at all for "current" movies to end up there.

Watched "Moneyball" tonight. I'm surprised Himself didn't fall asleep seeing as it was over 2 1/2 hours of baseball "stuff". Interesting enough, but they probably could have said just as much in 2 hours.

If it is a sports movie, it will never appear on my TV. Specially boxing. I love living alone. I have complete control over the remote. Fortunately Spike and I have the same tastes in TV programs. Mostly documentaries. And there are a lot of imports from the UK we watch together when he is here. Doc Martin has to be our favorite.

I love Moneyball. I watch it each time it's on. I love the interaction between Billy and Pete, especially when they were in the meeting room and Billy was saying which players they were going for with Pete being his yes man.

I much prefer sports movies than watching the actual sport. Moneyball is a favorite here, too!

Have to watch 42 this weekend...

Have you seen For Love of the Game? Great drama set around baseball. It was free last time I saw on Amazon Prime or Netflix. Can't argue with a Kevin Costner movie... well, most of them, lol.
