We watched Foxcatcher last night, based on a true story about Dupont's heir and the US Olympic wrestling team in the 80's.

We watched a older Cameron Diaz movie, Sex Tape. It was really funny but not the type of movie for young 'uns. We laughed from beginning to end.

Off to see "Into The Woods" at the local cinema tonight.

An interesting cast: Meryl Streep, Emily Blunt, James Corden, Anna Kendrick, Chris Pine, Johnny Depp, Lilla Crawford, Daniel Huttlestone, Tracey Ullman, Christine Baranski

And a fun-sounding story - "This modern twist on the beloved Brothers Grimm fairy tales intertwines the plots of a few choice stories and explores the consequences of the characters' wishes and quests. The humorous and heartfelt musical follows the classic tales of Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Jack and the Beanstalk, and Rapunzel - all tied together by an original story involving a baker and his wife, their wish to begin a family and their interaction with the witch who has put a curse on them". I have very simple tastes.

We have a privately owned cinema in the village owned and run by a man who chooses films he thinks we'll like, rather than films some conglomerate wants us to see. If a film is going well he keeps it on for an extra week. We get new releases as quickly as the big cinema chains and there are queues outside the cinema every night like in the days when Bette Davis was "suffering in mink", as they used to say.

I really hope you like "Into the Woods" MC. I thought it was a delightful afternoon away from reality. Not a flick for everyone, but money well spent in my opinion.
Sigh, just lovely.

We finally got around to getting "Draft Day" from the library. Sure, it's about the Cleveland Browns, but I watched it mostly for the scenery! Meanwhile, Himself is busy picking out all of the scenes that were a bit "off" compared to the way the different parts of the city were strung together. Geez.

My wife is a Radiologist and when ever we are watching movies with a medical scene or god forbid a hospital movie or show, she always points out the parts that are incorrect, also are closest friends are both troopers {husband and wife} and they come over at least 6 times a month if not more {we watch certain shows together on the dvr in my theater so every single week they are here} and when ever there is a police scene with codes or showing what a cop does they mention how wrong it is, lol.
I on the other hand own a real estate company and an HVAC company {recently sold the hvac actually} so hardly ever get the chance to interject, but when I see a thermostat near a window or really low on the wall I always point it out, lol...


I recently watched boyhood I loved it, it was filmed over 12 years with the same cast, amazing idea, showed him grow up, just a normal kid, very very cool...

I also watched Vincent and loved that as well, I was actually tearing up at the end, lol..

Watched John Wick last night, it was pretty entertaining if you are into shoot 'em up action flicks. There is already a second one in the works, I hope it will be as good as the first.

Watching "Her" on HBO now. Great flick, I've seen it a couple of times before.

A bit of cotton candy for the brain, we watched "One for the Money", a film adaptation of the first "Stephanie Plum" novel by Janet Evanovich. I've read a bunch of the books and was rather pleased that the actors chosen for the parts were very close to my mind's idea of who they were. Himself actually enjoyed it, but then Sherri Shepherd was in it and he really likes her. She was perfect as "Lula"!
