Went to see Star Trek last night. I end up going for the last showing at 10:20, I think I may have fallen asleep some time during the last part of the movie. Will have to go again. This time when I am not so tired.
As far as review goes, I think I liked this one the least out of three.

If anyone shares my love of the old Christopher Reeves movie Somewhere In Time, The Age of Adaline is a must see.
Yes, I've seen both films and loved them both. I saw Somewhere In Time when it first came out in the theaters back in '81, I think?

Went to see "Star Trek Beyond" last night in full-blown IMAX 3D. The theater I went to even serves wine by the glass, so I took advantage of that as well.

So I will just say right off the bat that I am a die hard Star Trek fan and have been for 50 years now. Of the three most recent JJ Abram Trek movies, I would have to agree with CharlieD that "Beyond" is probably the weakest. But, despite a couple of glaring plot holes and overly cheesy moments, I still found it entertaining. It had plenty of action, humor, and interesting alien species - everything you expect in a Trek film.

I also have to say that 3D technology has really come into its own. The theater I went to just started using new glasses that are much lighter in weight (and non-headache inducing) than the previous versions. I thought the 3D quality of the film was absolutely seamless and had beautiful clarity on the huge screen. After a few minutes I totally forgot it was in 3D and felt immersed in the experience. Same thing when I saw "The Life of Pets" last week. Hard to believe you can feel like you are enveloped in a 3D cartoon world, but you can.

I also saw it in 3-D. Have to agree 3-D is definitely great nowadays. Especially for a movie with so many special effects it adds a lot to the experience.

Oh, my! We had such a wonderful time watching The Legend of Bagger Vance, which we had recorded quite a while ago.

I knew it was something about golf, which really doesn't do much for either of us, but the cast included Matt Damon and Will Smith, so we added it to our queue.

Boy, oh boy! It was so much more than good old golf. We both loved it. Don't miss it.

I know this western movie is old. I saw it the TCM channel the other night. "Support Your Local Sheriff", starring James Garner and Joan Hackett and Walter Brennen and Jack Elam. James Garner acts cool and smooth as the new sheriff in a mining town. Joan Hackett is pretty (her character is smitten with the new handsome sheriff) and Walter Brennen is perfect as the mean, ornery patriarch of the family without much brains.


Here's a scene I like. Joan Hackett is more than happy to deliver lunch to James Garner at the sheriff's office. Watch out tho...a string of bad men want to challenge the new fast draw sheriff.

We went to the Sunday matinee of Finding Dory. It was OK, but we both liked Finding Nemo better.

We were two of four in the theater.

In my hammock while camping last night I watched Pawn Sacrifice. Fascinating film about Bobby Fischer, the famous chess player.
The film covered his childhood chess playing years up to becoming Grand Champion and ultimately defeating the Soviet World Champion. And of course, his psychological issues was a major focal point in this film.
