Watched “The Holdovers” last night on Amazon Prime nice indi flix from the director and star of Sideways the kind of film the Academy tends to like over blockbusters.
We watched it last night too. Really enjoyed it.

The only easy day was yesterday...

Leave the World Behind got a boatload of bad reviews. That said, I found this apocalyptic/conspiratorial (perhaps even camp) Netflix movie suspenseful and entertaining for a couple of hours at home. (I am never buying a Tesla! eek.gif wink.gif )

Bank of Dave on Netflix: A feel-good, David vs. Goliath story about a guy trying to set up a new bank in the north of England. I defy anyone to watch this movie and not be left with a smile on their face. Highly recommended!

Gave this a watch (via Amazon for higher quality) last night for the first time in a while. No matter how many times I watch it I'm always left with this gigantic sense of awe, a tremendous appreciation for life and our planet, and an incredible feeling of smallness that is really humbling - probably the closest, I assume, that I'll ever come to experiencing the overview effect. Eno's score, of course, is phenomenal.

The Shelter. A young woman on a solo hike discovers she's being hunted, and has her chances of survival reduced by her lack of the ten essentials. Really makes you think about what it might take to persevere against all odds and a particularly hangry bear, because as the trailer pointedly points out, the fight for survival has no second place. Well worth the Prime Video 99 cent movie rental (for SD).

In Bruges, early (2008) movie by Martin McDonaugh (3 Billboards Outside of Ebbing, MO/Banshees of Inisherin) featuring the wonderful improbable coupling of Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson (reunited in Banshees). Very dark, and very funny.

It is as though I had read a divine text, written into the world itself, not with letters but rather with essential objects, saying: Man, stretch thy reason hither, so thou mayest comprehend these things. Johannes Kepler

Marcel the Shell with Shoes On, unusual fake documentary about a One inch Shell with shoes on living in an Air BnB. 2022 on Netflix now. Strange but interesting with a cameo by Leslie Stall

Finally saw Oppenheimer. 3 hours of my life wasted. None of the charactors had any character except maybe Robert Downey Jr. Music was overpowering and what's with all of the "atomic" explosions and fireworks. Should have left all that on the cutting room floor and saves us 20 minutes. Don't understand all of the hype

"Searching for Sugarland" A wonderful movie about a man who becomes a mega star in South Africa after being nobody in the States. A feel good flick if I ever saw one.... cool.gif
