We watched The Purge last night.

It was uninspiring.

Haven't seen it yet but waiting for "The Ride of Her Life" DVD to hit the streets any day soon, before it hits the cheap mall theaters in April....LOL...
If you're a big fan of Subarus and doughnuts I think you'll enjoy this movie..

I swear, it's been over 25 years since I took my last hit.
Besides, that MM thread is starting to give me a headache....maybe I will take a hit...

Since it's March Madness time and we're not huge round ball fans, there really wasn't much on TV last night. However, our satellite provider is offering a "sampling" of free movie channels the next several days. Well...

We hit the jackpot last night. It was a night of twists and turns and whodunits. We really didn't intend to, but we ended up watching two movies, one right after the other.

The first one, Perfect Strangers, was a Bruce Willis/Halle Berry flick. Wow, did it have some good twists and turns. We really enjoyed it.

The second one, Just Cause, featured Sean Connery, Laurence Fishburne, Kate Capshaw and a host of other recognizable good actors. Boy, this one really had us guessing.

Great evening vegging with good movies!!! Two thumbs up for both films.

We went to the red box thing and god Don Jon and American Hustle. Both were outstanding.

We watched American Hustle last night, it was brilliant.

Night before we watched Nebraska, another amazing movie. Bruce Dern was magnificent.

Stupid stuff. Not the movie title. What I've been watching...
I can't even get through Oblivion without falling asleep
Some day I'll find out how it ends.

Last night I watched Up the Yangtze. Although I found it interesting and instructive I don't know if that would be everyone's opinion. While trying to neither 'celebrate nor condemn' I found myself cringing at more than one scene. Notably, one where a pianist on the cruise ship was playing and singing to the mostly wealthy people on the ship. The song was 'It's So Easy To Learn Chinesey'!

That was the low point.

Film Review: Up the Yangtze | Mother Jones

"[...] Chang (third-generation Canadian) neither celebrates nor condemns. Instead, he questions the ways in which economic progress erodes--sometimes even destroys--personal and cultural values."

Amazon.com: Up the Yangtze: Cindy Shui Yu, Jerry Bo Yu Chen, Yung Chang: Movies & TV

All in all I'm glad I watched it.
