I watched Conviction last night, a 2010 film, based on a true story about a fellow who gets convicted and sent to prison for murder. His sister, played by Hillary Swank, convinced of her brother's innocence studies law and eventually becomes a lawyer so she can try to get his conviction overturned. Great film.

I didn't view Daniel Day Louis until I saw him in his role... "Gangs of New York." I actually forgot he starred in "Last of the Mahicans.

Saw "The shape of water" last night. Not what I expected. Based in the 1940's. Had a slow start, once it got got it was okay. Pretty graphic sex scene.

Never ones to see a recent movie, we watched "42" tonight - released in 2013. I knew I had read who played the main characters, but I spent the first half of the movie trying to figure out who was playing Branch Rickey. After I cheated and looked it up (Harrison Ford), I spent the rest of the movie wondering where they hid Harrison Ford! He completely became Branch Rickey, or at least his interpretation of who Rickey was and how he would have been. Very good movie, but I cried over man's inhumanity to man...*sigh*

If you see a movie and dont see the actor but the character instead, then the actor is a really good actor and a very good script. That is why my favourite actor is Ben Kingsley.

Watching Commando right now, debating on the lineup for the rest of the day...it's usually The Quiet Man and Darby O'Gill and the Little People.

Sean Connery was in Darby O'Gill. A better movie than the overly fanciful Finian's Rainbow, in this viewers opinion.

I watched "Lady Bird" a few days ago. I was curious since it had received awards, high acclaims, and a 99% positive review on Rotten Tomatoes - which is usually my first go-to site for a little reading about a movie, and the critic and audience reviews.

https://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/lady_bird

It was about a 'coming of age' movie - a teen daughter and her rather overbearing mother (Laurie Metcalf). I can see where there were awards for the acting, but IMO the storyline was depressing and made me sad. I had trouble believing they gave it a comedy/drama genre - I didn't see the comedy part of it much at all. I gave it another try and watched it again the next day to see if my feelings had changed, they didn't.

Review: Lady Bird

Just goes to show how different one opinion can be from the online reviews. LOL
