I watched 'Burnt' last night from my campsite. Hiked out to my local spot for some solitude. Good movie, but wow, the Chef had issues. I enjoyed it.

BTW, here's a view from my camp... That thing strapped to the tree is a tree shelf with a butane cooking stove.

That is so cool, roadfix! Love the "bed" too. Sadly, it would not work for me - I'm a tummy sleeper.

In fact, I have a backpackers' bridge hammock on order. With that, you can be on your tummy, as I occasionally do like to sleep on my tummy. It hangs flat. I often feel too 'confined' in these gathered end hammocks and also get tired holding a tablet while watching a movie. This new hammock should change all that.

Looks like a great way to watch a good movie, roadfix!

Thanks, it's a good way to let time pass since I'm not much of a reader. :)))

Try some audio books sometime, very cool for enjoying the scenery at the same time.

Looks pretty cool and do-able, but there is still all that "camping" thing and all. We used to camp. Tent camp, on the ground, sleeping bags on small blow-up mattresses, no cots. Never owned a trailer, etc. But now we're old and out-of-shape, so we prefer camping at the Holiday Inn.

Sandra Bullock gets a fair bit of negative comment in the "meeja" but I rather like her films.

I don't find her engaging/convincing as an actress - she does pathos fairly well. (Since You Were Sleeping was passable - I felt Bill Pullman carried that movie more though).

There are films I tend to avoid if they star someone I don't regard as a good actor/actress, Julia Roberts is another one. Whilst I am sure she is a lovely person and, of course, is attractive (as is Sandra Bullock), acting wise....meh! (Not a great range).

Oh and lots of male actors (e.g. Stallone, Schwarzenegger, Bruce Willis) but then they are in the kind of films that would bore me anyway.

I loved Walter Matthau and Jack Lemmon working together! Also particularly like Neil Simon screenplays.
