Since you mentioned Julia, I thought about the movie I saw. It was like the opposite of Pretty Woman. Kind like Bad Santa. They should have call this movie Bad Richard Gere, or should I say Edward Lewis...

The "flash backs" of 13 years are a little tricky until I noticed the grey color (or lack of hair) in the males. Stunning performances all round. I don't give a flip about the "critics"...It's worth the ticket to be sure from this critic.
I'm going to keep an eye out for that one Kay, it's not playing here yet. I really enjoy a good suspense thriller. And don't you just love being the only one in the theater, or at least one of just a few others? Gotta love the weekday matinees.

I hear ya on the critic reviews, and rarely pay any attention to them either. A film doesn't have to be a widely acclaimed blockbuster hit for me to simply enjoy it for what it is, in a nearly empty theater, with my box of popcorn.

The Martian. Quite interesting how he survived many months on the planet. But the rescue mission was quite far fetched..... But overall I enjoyed the movie.

We really liked The Martian too, but I agree about the rescue.

I love science fiction, but Martian, though was enjoyable movie, was just not believable, not by any stretch. Despite the fact that some people thought it was based on the true story. Yes, I did see article devoted to the fact that there were some people who thought it was s true story..

I don't know why, but every time it comes on, I can't go past "The Magnificent Seven. I have sat and watched that movie at least eight or nine times. I also watched a B&W Sherlock Homes WWII movie with Basil Rathbone.

Summer in February - a romantic drama based on real life. The artist Alfred Munnings and his friend competing for a beautiful debutante. As a central character, she comes across as insipid, somewhat wooden but I suppose her looks were enough for the chase. A tragic tale all the more sad for having taken place.

Yeah, that's funny, several people have also asked me if The Martian was based on a true story....
