Some will consider even a villain a good person if he is played by Ben Affleck. 😄😉

When Alan Rickman died this week, I heard that people found him a likeable villain. He does have a certain persuasive charm that comes through.

I rented A Walk In The Woods (with Robert Redford and Nick Nolte) from itunes and watched it last night on my tablet while camped in the woods.
The film gave me a few laughs, but overall it was a so so film...

That made me smile RF. It sounds like a perfect solo tent choice.

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.

Oh lordy. We went to the Sunday matinee today to see this, and it was awesome! I see a few Oscars. We even got DH home in time to watch his beloved Hawkeyes. Non-stop action, and absolutely fascinating. Now I'm going to look into getting the book.

Glad you felt the same Dawg. I've seen 3 of the Oscar nominations for best picture so far. I hope to see more. I would rate them..(all were excellent)
1. Revenant
2. Bridge of Spies
3. The Martian

Thanks for the recs, Kay! Our little cinema is only a few minutes from our place. DH thought he forgot his glasses at home, so he drove back, only to find they'd fallen into the back seat of the car...arrrghh. Thankfully he got back for the start of the movie. We missed the previews.

"On the Way to School" last night on Netflix -- documentary about 4 kids in 4 parts of the world who face tons of obstacles just to get to school everyday. The 4 kids are from Argentina, India, Kenya, and Morocco.

It makes you realize how lucky we are to live in developed nations.

Drat, I keep getting popped off your link, Kay. DH was much more grossed out than I. Other than the guy behind me who kept crinkling his candy bag, there was not a peep in the theater. I was surprised at how many single men that came in to watch the movie solo. Maybe that might be a new way to meet men, single ladies!
