Another good Netflix original series is Narcos.

We watched Black Mass and Bridge of Spies.

Both well done and we enjoyed both immensely.

I'm going to go outside of my usual movie genre comfort zone and go see 10 Cloverfield Lane at tomorrow's matinee. I'm usually not a fan of apocalyptic type movies, but this one interests me because of the rave reviews of John Goodman and Mary Elizabeth Winstead. I don't think I've ever heard of her. They sure kept this film under wraps, I just recently heard about it. (I haven't seen Cloverfield from the same producer/director JJ Abrams, so I'm unbiased about the possible relation).

Anyone seen it yet?

10 Cloverfield Lane (2016) - IMDb

"....A young woman wakes up in a basement. It is owned by a man who claims he saved her life after pulling her from her overturned car which violently crashed along the highway. The man states that the world above them is no longer safe and is now a danger zone that threatens the rest of humanity. With no knowledge of what actually lies above and trust running thin between them, the woman questions what's true and what's not. Is the man a delusional psychotic that has a more sinister agenda for her? Or is it really hell on earth above ground like he swears?..."

I watched "Carol" a couple of nights ago. I enjoyed it. It was nominated for a couple of awards for the Academy Awards this year. I really like the setting, as it took place in Cincinnati during the 50's.

Just watched "Due Date" - a comedy with mismatched Robert Downey Jr. and Zach Galifianikis.

It was enjoyable/quirky, unpredictable and often funny!

I finally saw The Big Labowski today and tonight watched The Count of Monte Cristo which I'd not seen, either.

I enjoyed The Count of Monte Cristo but didn't care for The Big Labowski. There was too much swearing and not a fan of Goodman at all, but I get it. My oldest wanted me to watch it with him and I did.

Mockingjay Parts 1&2. They stayed true to the books and I enjoyed them.
