Last night we watched a 1997 Nicholas Cage-John Travolta film called Face/Off. Little over 2 hours long but it was packed with action, twists and turns and intrigue. Both those guys certainly can play wacko characters well. We really enjoyed it. If you like to sit still, this isn't for you. Lots of things going on...all the time.

I loved that movie, too, Katie.

That is a good one. I haven't seen it in years. I'm adding it to my Netflix queue - assuming it's available there. Netflix sometimes disappoints me.

That annoys me, but I can get past it. Every time it was said I thought of Gordon Ramsey and adolescent ridiculous language and behavior.

Not to worry, GotGarlic. Netflix has Face/Off. You're in luck.

I think I'm going to go see Burnt at the 1:00 matinee today. I don't usually like to go on a Sunday, but I'm going to be picking up Tyler from school most of the week from now on and have to be there by 2:45.

I hope it's not crowded at the theater. Anything over half filled is crowded to me - I'm used to being practically the only one there.

Katie - I loved Face/Off too, that was a good one!

This afternoon we went to see THE MARTIAN with Mat Damon. I understand why the reviews are great, and we both really enjoyed it! Oscar worthy for several nominations I'd guess.

I went and saw Burnt yesterday at the matinee. Great movie - and all those luscious looking food close-ups! Yes, there were a lot of f-bombs - I was pleased at how well Bradley Cooper played the hot tempered chef.

I really enjoyed it. There were only 3 others in the theater besides me, which is always nice. I do want to go see The Martian next, that sounds like a good one.

I was wondering if the rest of the country does the same as here. Every Wednesday, both the movie and live stage theatres have senior discounts for the matinee. We also have a Saturday matinee discount for the stage .
