We went to see Star Wars: The last Jedi in Imax 3D. Loved it!

And you're not kidding. $100 for just the 3 of us with shared small popcorn, nachos, and soda.

I looked for Victoria and Abdul, it's not on Netflix and I'm not going to PPV. Guess I'll just wait.

My son has a Credit Card or actually I think it is a bank card, but he can build points and then he takes me to a movie.... love it, free for him and me ... Lol actually costs me more than him because I usually take him for supper after!

Usually it is the second time he's seen whichever movie it is so a double bonus for him.

We caught that at our local theater on $6 Tuesday.. Excellent movie..

Went to a fave restaurant afterwards for dessert... The dessert cost more than the movie....

Yesterday, it was brutally cold so I went and saw "The Shape of Water." I think the theater was almost as cold as being outdoors.

I generally like Guillermo Del Toro's work, especially the dark monster movies like "Pan's Labrynth" and this one. One recurring theme in his films is that some of the people are far worse monsters than the actual creatures. In my opinion, "The Shape of Water" is a really well made movie, although I thought it was a little more violent in spots than it needed to be. It definitely keeps you on the edge of your seat, though.

I have it on hold at my local library. Maybe your library will have a copy.

On Netflix streaming I watched a French movie called The Climb. A French-African man with no climbing experience attempts to summit Mt Everest. A very interesting story of romance and what a man is willing to do. I liked it.

I watched the Ottoman Lieutenant last night. It was good, not riveting but the scenery and backgrounds where wonderful - lots of airial shots.

Thanks JoAnn. My village doesn't have a film library... I'm not even sure they have English books, never been in it - they are only open on certain days at certain hours - not too sure where it is - did I mention I live near a very small village?

I just finished watching a most amazing Netflix documentary about the history of rock climbing in Yosemite. It starts around the time I first visited there, and all the excitement of the first climbs of both Half Dome and El Capitian. Even if you have no interest in rock climbing, this is nearly two hours of pure entertainment with unbelievable footage, told by the climbers of the last 50 years. Whatatrip!
Roadfix....if you haven't seen this, don't miss it!
