  • I watched The Babadook because of the hype. I was expecting to be scared after the movie. All I felt was depression.

    Lupin. Netflix. French, dubbed skilfully into English. Only 5 episodes in the 1st series but more is in the pipeline... theoretically scheduled for April '21... as there are over 60 stories, there's plenty of potential material. Extremely good. My erudite, educated, and intellectual 88-year-old mother found it excellent, and her disappointment at there being merely 5 episodes was palpable.

    Oh. Where are my manners?
    Happy New Year, everyone.

    On the recommendation of a friend I watched Gran Tourino with Clint Eastwood last night.
    Fairly forgettable...

    I'm a bit into the series Warrior. The story idea comes from Bruce Lee and the main star mimics some of his fighting style. What is the most interesting to me though is the story backdrop is the early Chinese immigration into the US. This era of US history hasn't really been depicted or covered much in popular fiction.

    The characters and story are somewhat boiler plate western/gangster, but the production value is high and the martial arts action is well done.

    I was watching this. Disney’s Moana which was quite good fun, if a bit syrupy in the beginning.

    I thought this was excellent, a docu on YouTube which consists mostly of people talking to camera and being amazingly honest about subjects such as love, being a woman, abuse and money.

  • I think we may have been in a movie ...

    Will be watching this instead

  • Saw the first of this animated series headspace-guide-to-meditation

    Yesterday evening the old fella and I watched a film called "A Monster Calls". It's about a boy whose young mother is terminally ill with cancer... and the upheaval of emotions he goes through, accompanied throughout the film by a Yew tree that comes to life. Weird? Not really. Charming, thought-provoking and quite emotional.
    Louis MacDougall, who plays the boy, is superb. Sigourney Weaver, as his grandmother, is brilliant, in an understated way...

    I was watching this, called Dark Shadows, with Johnny Depp, Michelle Pfeiffer, Chloe Grace Moretz, Helena Bonham Carter and Eva Green, directed by Tim Burton. Just goes to show that a strong cast and a good director can’t make a turkey into a swan. It was not a good movie. Avoid.

    I thought the combination of Tim Burton and vampires might prove interesting to some people. It wasn’t Burton’s best film by a long shot but for those into such things it might be ok.

    Beautiful short film @shoshin1 though rather sad. It caused me to shed a tear or two and made me all emotional...

    This was quite a fun film. No violence and some pretty funny bits. French Kiss, starring Meg Ryan and Kevin Kline, directed by Lawrence Kasdan.
