Agree with you Charlie, that's a good one.

I agree, American Sniper is really good......despite the title sounding like a violent video game.

Today we went to see The Revenant, based on the story of Hugh Glass. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hugh_Glass

It's sure not for the faint of heart, but we both thought it was a terrific film. I'm very interested in seeing how it does at the Golden Globes tonight.

What's the last movie you watched?

We went to the Sunday matinee to see the new Star Wars in 3D. We're probably the last two people anywhere who hadn't seen it yet, other than the other 20 people that were there, so maybe 22 of us hadn't seen it. I loved it! DH found it somewhat boring, which I don't quite understand. I'd seen the original first four, but missed all the more recent prequels.

The Revenant is next on the list.

I thought the new Star Wars was pretty predictable. Great special effects but not much plot.

I'm glad to see how well "The Revenent" did tonight on the Golden Globes. It's really a film well worth seeing in our opinions. I love a film of substance, not only drama, that leaves one thinking long after you leave the theater. To me, that's the making of a great film.

We haven't seen it yet either. The plan was to re-watch (or, in some cases, watch) the previous episodes on cold, snowy nights. So far, winter hasn't shown up. By the time we get around to watching the earlier movies, the new one will be on disc.

Not really a movie but we have been watching The Man in the High Castle on Amazon.

I think it is 10 installments and we have gotten through 5.

So far, fantastic.
