Actually, I didn't find it humorous at all, but an interesting study of an unusual story and very well acted by all. Could use some editing? Hmmm. I don't understand that.

We watched 'Concussion' last night. Based on a true story and awesome performance by Wil Smith who plays a pathologist who linked suicidal deaths of retired football players to brain damage from playing football.

We watched "Forever Young" from '92 tonight and I loved it! SC has seen it a couple of times, and the movie was responsible for him adding "fly a B-25" to his bucket list of things to do before you die. He will be checking that off his list on Sat. and I'm so thrilled for him!! Dreams should come true.

Forever Young (1992) - IMDb
I rented it for streaming at Amazon Videos.

It was pretty good though I did not like the ending. True story.. blah blah.. didn't like it.



We watched Child 44 the other night, well told story.

Good for him. He goes after his dreams. I hope the flight is everything he has been dreaming of.

Just got done watching Selfless, with Ben Kingsley and Ryan Reynolds, excellent Sci-Fi thriller.

I watched Face of Love on Netflix last night. Ed Harris, Robin Williams, and Annette Bening were in it. I enjoyed this chick flick.

Just watched again that old film 'Avanti' with Jack Lemmon and Juliet Mills.
(Anyone remember that one?) I could provide the free online link upon request.

I remembered it very fondly but, although very good was not as excellent as I recalled. Still brilliantly acted, fast paced and highly amusing though. The soundtrack music really adds to the feel of the situation.

We went to see a matinee of "Deadpool". Good gravy, it is hilarious! One liner and one liner after another! If you laugh, you'll miss one! Not for the kidlets, much violence and a bit of nudity, but it is crazy funny!

DH and I both agreed, we'll have to see it again to figure out what we missed!
