I just finished watching The Martian on PPV. Loved it!!!
I'm sure it would have made more of an impact on the big screen, but I was still very happy with it and totally engrossed in the film. I thought Matt Damon did an amazing job.

I didn't even recognize Jeff Daniels until halfway through the movie!

Glad you liked The Martian also Cheryl.

Don't miss Bridge of Spies with Tom Hanks. Excellent movie that does not require the theater for the full impact. Remarkable film.

You have good taste in films. :) Another good foreign film is 'Of Girls and Horses' (German) about a troubled teen girl who is forced to go to a horse farm as punishment.

Also, 'Marie's Story' (French) is a true story about a young lady who was born deaf and blind in the 1800's, and her parents have to take her to a local convent where the nuns teach deaf girls. Sort of a French Helen Keller.

'Picture Bride' is set in the 1920's -- about a young Japanese woman who agrees to marry a Japanese-Hawaiian man sight unseen.

All are on Netflix Instant.

Love movies in the 3D... but it was streaming and we aren't set up for 3D at home.

Last night we watched Under the Skin (weird, slow, and I think they worked too hard to make it "artsy") and The Captive (pretty good).

I am done with snow.

Don't miss it Cheryl. Bridge of Spies will be a classic, long after all the hoopla of the 2015 Oscar season.

We watched Trainwreck tonight.

Light and funny. Kathleen wanted light and funny after we watched When Trumpets Fade. That was not light and funny. Very good, not light nor funny.
