Of course, it's far from recent.
And far from accurate. Years ago a Silicon Valley type had a yawl versus derelict shipping container encounter. Planes, multi spectra radar, satellite images ... nothing ever found. I stared at satellite images night after night for that search too.

I recently watched about half of The Lady in Black before giving up on it as utter nonsense.

Just saw All is Lost. Pretty good, recommended.


Pitiful that "All is Lost" got only 1 Oscar Nomination for Sound Editing.

The other night we watched another Oscar winner, for documentary: 20 Feet from Stardom. Absolutely outstanding. I want to say more, but I don't want to give it away. It's about backup singers.

Movies I just borrowed and watched from the library:

The Butler
Monty Python and the Holy Grail
Sophie's Choice

My expectations about The Butler:
I thought it was going to be an informative yet somewhat boring movie.

My thoughts about The Butler after watching it:
Not boring although I thought it was a little overacted more so towards the beginning I found it to be very informative and historical and was glad to see the way they showed the struggles of African Americans throughout time. I liked the movie, really liked the ending and I actually cried.

My expectations about Monty Python and the Holy Grail:
It was going to be a silly men-type humor movie with odd British humor

My thoughts about Monty Python and the Holy Grail after watching it:
It was a silly men-type humor movie with funny British humor

My expectations of Sophie's Choice:
I realy didn't have any expectations other than it was going to be a good movie about great romantic love and something having to do with a child

My thoughts about Sophie's Choice after watching it:
It wasn't a grand love story like I thought it would be and it wasn't entirely about a child, although when they revealed what the title "Sophie's Choice" was about towards the end of the movie it was disturbing, moving, unexpected and thought had a greater impact on me than what "Rosebud" meant in "Citizen Kane".

Rosebud had nothing to do with some stupid kid's sled.

Its an odd assemblage of movies but for a rainy afternoon or while soaking in the tub one sometimes just needs a diversion and the threshold is not a high one.

I don't recall ever having either borrowed or rented a movie from a library. perhaps should look into it.

You're not supposed to give away spoilers in this thread.

"Sexy Evil Genius"

A funny psychological thriller that takes place mostly around the table in a bar.

Seth Green, Michelle Trachtenberg, Katie Sackhoff, William Baldwin, Harold Perreneau.

A little bit of Anthony Michael Hall, too

I don't think you can reveal a spoiler to a 70 year old film.

The fact that she thinks it did made me laugh out
loud.

Good god. I would be punished if I said what I was
thinking.
