I've always loved the concept of downsizing and living in tiny dwellings. I will eventually.
I watched that last night as well. I could do it as a single person with a bigger stove, lol. My other half could not...

Watched The Lego Movie last night. Was prepared to think it was no good but actually found it quite funny.

World War Z on netflix. Not a fan of zombie movies but I actually enjoyed this one.

I agree. I would need to be single, and with an additional outdoor, enclosed cooking area.

I watched Darwin's Nightmare last night. The editing could have been better but never-the-less it was a real eye-opener.

"Darwin's Nightmare is a 2004 Austrian-French-Belgian documentary film written and directed by Hubert Sauper, dealing with the environmental and social effects of the fishing industry around Lake Victoria in Tanzania. It premiered at the 2004 Venice Film Festival, and was nominated for the 2006 Academy Award for Documentary Feature at the 78th Academy Awards.[1] The Boston Globe called it "the year's best documentary about the animal world." [2]

I have to disagree about it being the best documentary about the 'animal world' although it does show how simply emptying one bucket of a non-native fish into Lake Victoria at the same time provided work for many and drove other populations into near starvation. Really emphasizes "No good deed goes unpunished".

Not for the faint of heart but an excellent documentary for those interested: Certainly not in the category of a 'fluffy'.

Just getting around to posting this and it's probably because the movie was so, ugh, not good.

We'd heard many reviews from friends, etc. that were quite positive so when I was last at the library I brought home August: Osage County. Cast seemed good - Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts, Sam Shepard, along with others. The library had it listed as a drama/comedy so I thought we might enjoy it.

What a waste of our time and a waste of acting talent!! We watched it all the way through, all the while hoping it would improve. No where did we see any speck of comedy and, if there was any, it had to be dark and hidden.

Instead what it was, in our view, was about 2 hours of witnessing a totally dysfunctional family. That's not entertainment.

Yep, I couldn't have said it better. The only saving grace about it is that it makes your own family look so dang good.

On my mom's BD - 6/22 - we watched the entire Twilight saga and the first 2 Hunger Games movies. Mom is fascinated by the sparkly skinned ones, and I just LOVE how Kat will not let anyone pick on her family.
