I suffered a dozen stab wounds earlier today. I was trying to learn how to eat with a fork.

Thank you! I haven't seen that one. I, too, am desperate to add movies to my queue!

A quirky but lovely little movie: Dean Spanley (2008) - IMDb

Peter O'Toole was always one of my favorites, since a child. Seeing him in this movie -- elderly, somewhat frail -- well, it's worth the watch! I think you would find something in it -- hubby and I did.

I will try to think of others over the coming days. Any recommendations are much appreciated!

You know, I have never seen that movie, although I have heard of it and always meant to watch it! Thank you so much!

BTW - one of my friends is a respected young adult author . . . you should check out her work. I am so proud of Joyce. She is a lovely person and a fine writer. This work is about a 13 year old boy who is banished to Molokai:

This one's in my queue too. It will probably inspire me to want to move to Oregon (:

Saw that one last month. Let me know what you think. I was not that impressed with it, probably b/c I was uncomfortable with what I perceived to be a personality disorder propelling self-indulgent behaviors . . . won't say more!

Some of the shots of the forest and coastline were amazing!

I stumbled across this one on Netflix. It's the story of the investigation and exposure of CIA traitor Aldrich Ames. The two women who exposed him wrote Circle of Treason and were involved in the filming of this. It's a short series rather than a single film. I gave it four stars.

Watch The Assets Online | Netflix

Circle of Treason: CIA Traitor Aldrich Ames and the Men He Betrayed - Kindle edition by Sandra V. Grimes, Jeanne Vertefeuille. Politics & Social Sciences Kindle eBooks @ Amazon.com.

This brought to mind another short series that I saw a year or two ago. It's about a conspiracy dating back to Stalin, it's partly set in the grim arctic city of Archangel. I gave this one five stars. I seldom give anything over three stars; five is really unusual for me.

CP, getting around in MIA is easy with MetroRail and the trains. Mom called me from the train last night, going from West Palm Beach to Miami for a concert. It's the 'season' now, she has lots of concerts and events through April.

No Netflix here, I doubt if our DSL could support it. It took two years for the phone company to realize we could get internet via phone service. Something about having 18 gauge wire.......dunno.

Our fave Halloween movies:

Transylvania 6-5000
High Spirits
The Little Vampire
Dracula, Dead and Loving It
Ghostbusters
Ghost

Caught the tail end of Monument Men yesterday, DH said it was a slow start but a great finish.

Thank you for the recommendations!

Five stars is very rare for me, as well -- so I look forward to these.

Last night I saw a 1928 silent film, "The Passion of Joan of Arc". It is considered an iconic film of that era. The filmmaker was Danish, but the film was made in Paris.
