SO glad I did! Heartwarming, funny (not slapstick), pathos with a great ending. Done in black and white which enhanced the movie in my opinion.
I loved Nebraska!

Watched on streaming video, 3 Days to Kill. Kevin Costner's latest film was just bad. Don't even bother.

It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World in CinemaScope on real movie screen in a restored 1933 Fox Theater. It was beyond great. I would go see it again tomorrow.

Watched "The Blind Side" today, with Sandra Bullock. I saw it a few years ago when it first came out and when I saw it was replaying I made sure to record it. True story, and a great movie, IMO.

Went out last weekend and saw The Grand Budapest Hotel. Beautifully filmed. Mediocre story.

I watched Night Train, one of the worst films ever made, in it's entirety last night! YES--- I watched the whole thing!

"Two Passengers and the conductor discover that a person has passed away on their Night Train cabin. They come across valuable diamonds on his person, that they wish to keep for themselves. So, to make it look like the man never boarded the train, they conspire to dump his body in a river that the train passes. Their scheme to get rid of the corpse escalates to the point where they have to chop up his body just to fit him into a small trunk. They then become paranoid, as they might turn on each other."

Night Train (2009) - Plot Summary - IMDb

Since Danny Glover was in it, plus LeeLee Sobieski was in it I took a chance---- plus any movie that has a corpse being hacked up is all right by me!

Why did I watch it all? Beats the heck out of me!

Our Netflix selection last night was The Monuments Men. Wow, what a film! The cast was an unusual mix: George Clooney, Matt Damon, Bill Murray, John Goodman and more, but the ensemble worked very, very well.

The story was mind boggling and the volume of art and valuables that was involved was way beyond what my mind could comprehend. I'm still trying to wrap my brain around what was destroyed and/or is lost forever.

Just went and saw A Million Ways to Die in the West. It wasn't as funny as I hoped, but it was still funny.

GREAT! If you didn't like Fargo, the movie, you won't like this. It's not a copycat of the movie but there are a lot of similarities.
An update of my review of Fargo the TV series with Billy Bob Thornton:

I've vacillated between really liking it and wondering---- where are they going with this. Some episodes have left me cold then the next one picks me up again.
Anyone else watching it---- and what are your opinions?

I watch Monuments Men last night. It could have so much better (I thought) than it was. The subject was a great one. George Clooney was yummy as always. But it just didn't jell for me. Just my opinion, of course.
