I watched the Meru Documentary.

It was 2016 top 15 finalist for best documentary Oscar.

It is about three elite climbers and their quest to climb to the top of Meru Mountain in India. A solid piece with a lot of backstory on each of the three climbers.

This season's House of Cards is pretty intense. I've been watching an episode or two every night.

We've watched a few. Got hooked on it last year. Excellent writing and acting.

I ordered up the first season of HofC from the library last week. Still waiting. Might still be waiting for it by the time the current season is over. Oh, wait, for some people it IS already over!

We have a window of "freebies" from our dish provider so we've been recording our heads off.

Last night we watched one of the movies we'd recorded, Last Vegas. Omigosh! So funny. We laughed, mostly out loud and when I wasn't laughing I was snickering like a little kid. Fun and sweet at the same time.

Good cast: Morgan Freeman, Michael Douglas, Kevin Kline, Robert De Niro, Mary Steenburgen. If you want a giggle or two, this might do it for you.

Ridiculous 6 I think was one of the last ones we watched.

The last movie I watched was The Minnions II with Pirate. He loves them and makes it a point to see both of the movies whenever he can. He got the film this time from the Library. Spike is on the list for Martian. The Library has about five copies of it and they are all out right now. So he is 247 on the list. He started at 550 when he first put in the request. We get a lot of movies from there. Unfortunately, even though they always have about four or five copies, there is still a waiting list for really popular movies.
