We watched Despicable Me 3. I have to say this is one series of movies that is keeping my attention. The stories are silly but that's exactly what they are supposed to be.

And I think we need a little more silly in the world!

Watched Deepwater Horizon the other night. It was pretty good. Kurt Russel really aged.

We went and saw "The Post" today. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Post_(film)
How could you miss with a cast and true story like this?
We were both impressed.

Thank you for the review, Kay - I REALLY want to see this one. I agree about the cast - 2 of my favorite actors playing the leads. And on top of it all, it's a Spielberg production. (....and a rather timely release...lol)

I was really pleased to see Matthew Rhys is playing Ellsberg. He's a wonderful actor and I've missed him since he played Kevin in the cancelled series "Brothers and Sisters" with Sally Field. I was always amazed at how well he's mastered the American accent.

I'm going to try to go see it tomorrow!

edit - the cute Matthew Rhys on the Ellen show: :-)

Just finished watching the award winning "The Big Sick" on Amazon and although the title is misleading and stupid, I really liked it.

Also staring Ray Romano and Holly Hunter.

Starring: Kumail Nanjiani, Zoe Kazan, Holly Hunter Runtime: 1 hour, 59 minutes

Award Nominee: The Big Sick

Congratulations to the Amazon Original Movie The Big Sick, Critics’ Choice awards winner for Best Comedy and nominated for 2 Screen Actors Guild awards including Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture, Producers Guild Awards for Outstanding Producer of Theatrical Motion Pictures, and Writers Guild Awards for Best Original Screenplay.

I watched the first half of Hacksaw Ridge with my boy yesterday, until DW came in and asked what it was rated.

When she heard R and saw some of the violence, she ordered us to shut it off. As I tried to say that it wasn't any worse than some of his FPS video games, a particularly gory scene with guys getting their heads blown off came on, and off the TV went.

I'll watch it later. My dad was a combat medic in Europe in WWII, so the story holds great interest to me. I was raised on my Dad's stories of pretty much what was inthe movie.
