We watched "Whiplash" the other night. It was about a music student and his extremely cruel instructor. Very intense and heavy use of foul language. I enjoyed it.

I watched "The Town" the other night. Good movie - crime, action adventure. Filmed in Boston and I think, Connecticut. About a bank robber who fell in love with his hostage and tried to clean up his act.

The Town (2010) - IMDb

At the video store. It's out on DVD and Blu-Ray now.


We watched "The Theory of Everything" and "Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb". Loved both of them for different reasons.

We had a woooondeeeerful night of viewing last night. While I was at the library last week I picked up Jersey Boys, the story of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons. WOW!!

It was a longish movie (139 minutes) but we didn't realize how long it was until we looked at the clock after it finished. So much fun and we bee-bopped throughout. What great music!!!!

Crisis Hotline: Veterans Press 1 Review:

CNN aired this last night which is an OSCAR winner for best documentary Short Form looking at the the only crisis hotline in the USA for Military Vets.

Right away the documentary throws out the shock stat that this Hotline gets 22,000 phone calls a month. They show off the the dedicated responders as they react to a variety of complex calls and handle the emotional aftermath of what can be life-and-death conversations with Military vets.

The documentary is simple as it can get, but just pulls you in. You do not know any back story on who is calling, but the conversations shows off the grueling work the employees have to go through on a daily basis.

After watching I can see why it was the winner of the Oscar. It was just that good.

Took in The Imitation game over the weekend, it was a pretty solid movie. Great portrayal of Alan Turing.

Yesterday I went to the movies to see the new Cinderella 2015.

I wasn't so sure I wanted to see it until some friends told me it was not to be missed. It stars Lilly James who is Rose from Downton Abbey and it was so brilliantly done that it truly captivated me from beginning to end.
Cheryl...don't miss it!
