    Had a belated birthday movie night with a sibling and saw three wonderful movies: The Lost City, What We Did On Our Holiday(2nd time for me), and The Hundred-Foot Journey.

    I finally got around to Don't Look Up, which I'm working my way through and enjoying. We truly are that silly, shallow, and fact-resistant, most of us--perhaps the media most of all.

    What did you think of the Lost City? The commercial I saw, reminds me of Romancing the Stone.

    Oh, definitely reminiscent of Romancing The Stone, but definitely better! I think Sandra Bullock and Channing Tatum played very well off each other. {Also loved the little bit with Brad Pitt - lol) It was a fun movie.

    DH picked out two interesting movies last week:

    Georgetown with Christophe Waltz (I love him!!) and Vanessa Redgrave. Fun.

    The Innocents: A beautiful French movie with English subtitles. Just lovely, about a French female medic during WWII and her involvement with a nearby convent.

    Saw the Bob's Burgers movie with the adult kids last night. I enjoy the show when I catch it - lots of fast, funny dialogue. The movie was fun - lots like the weekly show.

    The Innocents Has been promoted relentlessly to me by Netflix. I think it’s possible I even saw it because it’s been out for several years. What did you think of it? If I did see it it didn’t leave much of an impression.

    I loved it, While I may have been influenced by the setting (a convent) because I did want to be a nun in my early life, DH, an Orange Presbyterian Scotsman, sobbed at the end. Try it--if you don't like it you can always turn it off.

    I may. My attention span is so short these days that I have a hard time going beyond 40 minutes. That is the typical length of episodic TV shows.

    We saw TOpGun Maverick yesterday.

    It was predictable but nice. You all need to see it on the big screen, and IMAX is preferred. We did not do IMAX however.

    Tom Cruise introduces the film, and thanks everyone for coming to the movie theater to see it. I guess it was ready in 2020 but Cruise convinced production companies to hold off until Covid died down. Now itís generating huge box office so that is good. I think it may be getting people back into the theater who have not been. I havenít been to a movie theater since February 2020.

    Iím a Tom Cruise fan in theory but his action films are so boring to me I havenít seen a Tom .cruise movie in years and years, but all the Tommy Boy eye candy was lovely.

    We went to the multiplex that has been retooled into theater seats that recline and are big and wide. They serve food. Itís all a bit much.
