Ingrid Goes West



Despite the film being a bit too dark for some, Plaza and Olsen are good in the leads.
The film takes some unpredictable turns in this take on the current generation's ideals of social acceptance, and the theme of loneliness. Worth a watch.

The Vietnam War (2017 TV Series)
I second this. It was a very good perspective on the war and if you like history it's a definite watch. My mother inlaw was in Hanoi during the war when she was 16 ish. I asked her about it and she doesn't talk about it. After seeing this series I can only imagine the things she saw and been through.

Another good war series is Band of Brothers. It's a must watch.

Superbly written and created by Ken Burns and narrated by Peter Coyote. If you like Burns' style also checkout the 9 part series that originally aired on PBS called Baseball (highly recommended). BOB is excellent.

Finally got a chance to watch IT. The story of the "Losers" was what really made this movie. Not Pennywise. I thought the movie wasn't scary at all expect for a few parts. CGI really hurt this movie cause it was just unbelievably sad. Overall good movie.

Raising Arizona.

Such a beautiful movie in both cinematography and narration with just the right dash of bizarre situations thrown in.

This has always been a cult favorite of mine but after 20 plus years of relationship and marriage, trying to start a family and failing, dealing with the frustration, costs, and emotional turmoil of infertility, and eventually accepting the fact I would not have children, I am now a proud new father in my 40s.

And yes, Arizona sunsets are beautiful.

Was pleasantly surprised by The Foreigner starring Jackie Chan! Almost comparable to the first Taken movie in the feel of it
