I just watched The Post. Very well written, acted and filmed, and the actors were top notch. Meryl Streep, Tom Hanks, Bradley Whitford, Sarah Paulson, Bob Odenkirk -- directed by Steven Spielberg.

It is a movie about the headlines I read growing up -- yes, I had an interest in this kind of stuff in the seventh grade. It was one of the central stories of my teenage years. It is a movie about what you are willing to risk to do what you believe is the right thing to do.

But, beside that, it is a well done movie worth watching.

I just got done watching ‘Kodachrome’ on Netflix. One of the best performances by Ed Harris. Must see.

I forgot to add, the ending was very predictable but that's exactly how I would have ended the film.

Souschef was a volunteer on the historic railroad today, so I went to the movies and saw A Quiet Place.
It's gotten outrageous 5 star reviews, and although I'm NOT a horror film fan I thought I'd give it a go, just for giggles. I really hated it..no big surprise there, but if you're a fan of this kind of thing, you'll really like it. Different strokes...

Last night I watched The Commuter, staring Liam Neeson. It was an hour and 45 minutes long. The first hour and 30 minutes were very good. Good suspense. Then, it was like the makers of the movie had to come up with a quick Hollywood ending (with Liam Neeson as the hero)... and they did.

I was disappointed, mostly because the movie was basically good, until the ending, where it went "off the rails," in more ways than one.

“Mame” with Lucille Ball and Bea Arthur. I love the Jerry Herman’s stage show, but Lucy is just dreadful in this, and the direction and choreography were a amateurish at best.

Ya gotta love the songs, though!

Kay....it's been playing here and I was kind of tempted to go see it because of the reviews, even though it's NOT my kind of flick either. Glad I didn't now. Actually, there haven't been many movies I've been all that interested in for the past few months. Grrrr....
