Guess who lives a block from the water? I'm on the third floor, but as this is an old brick building and we were also told the library (half a block west) and the post office (a block north) would both be destroyed in an earthquake like that, I don't have a lot of high hopes for this building.

So to keep from thinking about that, naturally, I just finished watching Christine. Can you tell I'm scraping the bottom of the barrel for movies?
I laughed through most of the movie San Andreas. I lived on the Puget Sound for a couple of years and RR, you're so fortunate....it's beautiful there!

I was hoping to see Big Fat Greek Wedding II this week, but won't be able to - unfortunately I procrastinated and this week I have Tyler all afternoon because of parent/teacher conferences and early dismissal. It might still be playing next week and if so, I'll go see it!

I want to see Hello, My Name is Doris with Sally Field. I've loved her for years now, and this sounds like a fun, quirky movie to enjoy by myself in the small local theater. It's not playing yet but will be watching for it.
Hello, My Name is DorisÂ*(2016) - Rotten Tomatoes

It is pretty here, but I do wish I could afford to go back to California to live. I lived in Northern California for 26 years and I really miss it.

By the way, I answered your question about the sour cream in the dinner thread, in case you see this first.

Going The Distance - Initially I wasn't sure whether to stick with it since it was clearly aimed at a much younger audience (some 4 decades younger than myself!) but it was an enjoyable romcom. Unpredictable (hallmark of a good plot), making me laugh in parts and..yes, it WAS romantic in a believable way! Drew Barrymore in a lead role helped to make it engaging too - I like her a lot.

The Last Hurrah with Spencer Tracy. It is a B&W movie from the 50's. A fictionalized version of James Curley. A Boston mayor for four terms and also one for Governor. He was as crooked as one could be. But he did make a difference in this city. He was so loved in this city, that he was re-elected while serving a sentence in Federal Prison for Mail Fraud. When the book was written, Curley tried to sue the author, but lost. He also tried to sue the movie producers and lost that suit also.

I sat through a very lousy movie last night on Netflix: Echo Park.
The reason I watched it was because I remembered them filming practically this entire movie just around the corner from where I live in Echo Park. I figured it was going to be a bad movie.....but I was just curious what it was about. Rock.

The last movie we watched was Madea Witness Protection. It was hilarious. My mother in law told us about it.

We watched Purple Rain last night over at my daughter's place. Both my daughters were teens during the 80's and Prince was a huge deal to them.....
