Thought I'd mention when we were "in hiding" we re-watched Unbroken on Prime. We both really liked it when it was in the theaters. Good for the times when we all need to be inspired by bravery and resilience. If you haven't seen it, I think you both will be impressed.

I learned today, that since theaters will be closed till who-knows-when, Fandango is offering first run movies, in your home for less than the cost of theater tickets for two......THAT makes me really happy, and I sure hope CherylJ (my dear movie friend) sees this. Bless her heart, she's been afraid to go back into her earthquake damaged little theater, way before the pandemic. By the way as you know, the term "bless her heart" is a sincere wish here in Cali.

I know I won't be going to ours before a vaccine is found for all..

Thank you, sweetie. Yeah....not sure I'll ever go back inside a theater again. I was reading an article about the possibility of drive in theaters making a comeback due to covid. I have such good memories of drive ins! I don't see that happening, though.

Hi, Cheryl! It's great to see you back! I hope we'll be seeing more of you {{{hugs}}}

Not a movie, but Kim's Convienience is a fun one on Netflix I think.

From the We are one film Festival I have watched three Short animated movies I say you should watch. The festival that is on youtube for free goes on until the end of next week.


The First one I saw was Bird Karma:




The second one I saw was Bilby



The third one I saw was Marooned





All three combined run under 20 minutes total. Each one was nicely animated and each one had a different story to tell. All the stories were solidly told in the short time periods they had for the animated movies. I would give all three of them a big thumbs up.

For the first long form Documentary I saw from the We are One Film Festival I watched Rudeboy: The Story of Trojan Records




This one looks at the quick rise and fall of Trojan records over in the UK. The record label produced reggae and ska music and started out in the late 60's.

I was fully into this documentary from start to finish. This was wonderfully produced with commentary from some of the artists from the record label.

After a week this one will be gone.

We just finished watching "The Good Lie". It had all the right stuff with Ian McKellan and Hellen Mirren and a con or two (or three or four). Parts in the beginning were slow and there were some gory scenes but the story was very good. The acting was good as well. I guessed who was conning who early, never expected the real outcome.

45 days in Harbar I say is a must see piece of work and you can watch it for free for a short period of time. This documentary is of Plastic artist-director César Aréchiga who recreates his living room and studio in a Mexican maximum-security prison, in which fifteen inmates learn about paper production, clay modeling, sculpture and painting.

Some of the inmates are really talented and the art in the end does look solid.
