It's a Christmas tradition here with my family - we watch that every year.

"Quills" starring Geoffrey Rush, Joaquin Phoenix, Kate Winslet, Michael Caine. Movie I caught on HBO or Showtime last night. Made in 2000.

Movie about the Marquis de Sade. I'm a new fan of Rush, I liked him in "The Kings Speech" and to a lesser degree in "Pirates of the Caribbean."

I saw "The Intern" at the matinee yesterday. Cute movie, if you don't go in with high expectations of it being a great film. Starred Robert De Niro and Anne Hathaway - Hathaway isn't on my list of faves as a great actress, but Robert De Niro nailed his character, and he was in almost every scene. You just want to hug him in this movie - he is why I went to see it.

The Intern (2015) - IMDb

Uncle Nicu and I watched Wild Hogs tonight waiting for Joyce and Justin to be home. That is very funny!

Went to see "The Martian" tonight with Matt Damon. Very good movie, although it had a few technical holes I noticed. For example, it would be impossible to communicate in real time over that distance (they even pointed this out in the movie, saying it takes about 18 minutes for a signal to reach Mars from Earth), and yet in one scene an astronaut is talking to his family back on Earth using a video screen as if they were just in the next room.

But it was well acted, had some funny moments, and quite a bit of the science seemed plausible. I enjoyed it.

A Charlie Brown Cartoon movie. The gang goes away to summer camp. Prior to that is was one of the gang saving some chateau in France from a fire. It was Friday night and nothing was on.

So now I am listening to Broadway and classical music pieces. Also watching some ballet.

I have been watching movies from the 40's and 30's. In Black and White. Mostly murder mysteries.

Yesterday we watched Limitless and Minority Report. We had seen Limitless before but awhile ago and since we started watching both series, we wanted to check out where they came from.

Just watched "The Judge". Good movie - I've always loved Robert Duvall.
