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.....

We saw The Jungle Book yesterday and absolutely loved it.

Only one crying baby in the theater and we passed her around the auditorium to keep her entertained. It was just the employees from the facility, so everyone knew everyone.

It's a very nice theater, clean and well kept.

What's the last movie you watched?

Not that what I am watching right now is anything special. Star Trek. But. I am seating by the pool in Orlando. Enjoying movie on the huge tv screen. It was only 45 degrees at home. It is around 79 here. The movie seems 19 times better than when I saw it originally. :)

It's not the movie, Charlie, it's your location. Sounds like you're on vacation and having a great time. Carry on...

We streamed 'The Revenant' for the past 48 hours. It was a good movie. That said, I had to look away during the bear scene until the bear rolled over on him, then I laughed. Then the scene where he got inside the horse, we'll that was just gross.

Other than that, I really enjoyed the scenery, just loved it, and the music was excellent.

The Revenant was my second favorite movie this year. My absolute favorite was Deadpool. Neither are for the faint of heart.

Jungle Book is next on the list to see!

Princess...how nice to have a place in your workplace where employees and their families can see movies. I smiled at the 'passing the baby around' part.

Charlie, have a great time in sunny Florida! Glad to hear you're on vacation.

As for movies, I haven't watched any worth noting lately...nothing at my local movie theater that I really want to see.

Stopped at the library today to pick up something light and funny. Walked out with an oldie, "Because I Said So" with Diane Keaton in the lead. 90 minutes of pure fluff, lots of laughs, and just what we needed after a rough week of yuck.

Last night we watched The Russia House, which was an older movie with Sean Connery and Michelle Pfeiffer, along with several other notable actors. We really didn't know much about the film but, based on the cast, anticipated a decent movie. Well...

We did watch it all the way through, but it was about as interesting as watching paint dry. A big disappointment.

Although, I will say, all Sean Connery has to do to entertain me is to recite the alphabet. At least I enjoyed watching him.

Just got back from seeing The Jungle Book in 3D. Beautiful. I do prefer the Disney animated musical version though. The current JB did give a couple nods to Bear Necessities and I Wanna Be Like You.
