I just saw this FREE documentary you can watch: Ping Pong


Watch Video | Ping Pong: Feature Films | POV | PBS

If you did not know that ping pong had a world championships for people over 80 plus years old now you do. The documentary looked a small group of people with one from the USA getting ready for the championships in China. This was a fun 52 minute documentary.

I finally got to watch The Lego Movie and it did not disappoint! I watched it twice because it was so fast-paced I missed a lot of subtle things the first time around.

Just got done watching From Time To Time. Very enjoyable movie for the whole family. Its a story intertwined between present and past. It star's Maggie Smith (she is so good).

I love Maggie Smith. Her and Judy Dench. Have they ever made a movie together?

They both are in The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel. A very good movie.

Will keep that one in mind. All I have to do is just see their name and I will watch it without even looking to see what it is about.

I had put requests in for five movies from the library. They all had long waits. Until my name was pulled! Himself picked three up on Monday. So, Monday we watched "Frozen". Forget Idena Menzel's singing - after all, she's a veteran of Broadway musicals. I was blown away by Kristin Bell's pipes. Then I read she trained as an opera singer. Her vocal training showed.

Tonight's movie was "Saving Mr. Banks". Is there anything Tom Hanks doesn't do well? Impressive once again, this time as Walt Disney. Himself was just as taken by the movie as I was.

Later this week we'll finish off with "The Monuments Men". Hope we than get a break before the other two DVDs are available.

There is a commercial for Wayfair. You can tell the girl singing in that has a Broadway voice training in her life.

Watched the newest Jack Ryan last night. Good reboot of the series, but had a hard time not seeing Chris Pine as Captain Kirk most of the time.

Forgot to mention one thing. Himself always watches a movie all the way through to the end of the credits, whether we're at home or for one of our infrequent forays to the theater. (Must say, as someone who has worked tech crew for little theatre shows I do appreciate it.) After "Frozen" was over and the credits were finished, we got an Easter Egg! Hidden at the end and not listed in the "Extras", we got to watch an interesting cartoon. Started in black and white with Mickey from his Steamboat Willie days, the image looking a bit like you're viewing the cartoon on the screen from your theater seat. Then the characters break through the "screen", changing to color when they are off the screen, reverting back to black and white when they go back into the screen. Very creative!
