Re: Recommend a good movie please

Having been involved in the real story, I can recommend the movie version of "All The President's Men" highly.  They did a great interpretation of what actually happened.

 

"The Foreigner" on Amazon Prime also is excellent.

Re: Recommend a good movie please

[ Edited ]

@Mersha @Sharke @Witchy Woman @JanetsGirl @Shelbelle ...et al, hoping I didn't miss anyone.  Thanks so much.  I am streaming so the choice is broad.  Some great ideas here.  I am off to check out storylines and make a choice.  Thanks so much for answering my call!!!

 

For those who haven't seen The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, it is a good series I am streaming.  It is about the life of Joan Rivers and the lead female plays her to perfection.  Check that out.

 

Also highly recommend The Outsider which has been discussed here. They did a great adaptation of Stephen King's book.  Don't dismiss this (like I would have a couple of years ago because you don't like horror).  It is very well done.  Great cast with Dennis Lehane involved in the production.

 

I am also streaming Medici which Is good as well.


Kaydee, indoor kitty, oznell, deepwaterdotter, iamaoldhippee, for some reason I could not call you out but thanks!

 

Thanks again for the list and happy weekend.  LM

Knives Out   we watched the other day the new movie very good.


I watched that and had to go back and watch again.  Since it's a whodunit, my first thought as to who the killer was happened to be correct but as the movie wore on I changed my mind at least 4 times!  

 

I rented Jo Jo Rabbit using On Demand yesterday and for a movie with nominations - I wasn't impressed with it.  I even went online to read reviews trying to explain what it's real message was intended to be and "NOPE" - glad I didn't go to see in the theaters.

@Lilysmom   Actually, Mrs. Maisel is based on several female comedians.  This is from a Town & Country article from Dec. 26, 2018.

 

The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel's Real-Life Inspirations: Joan Rivers, Phyllis Diller, and More

She's not based on any one person, but Midge owes a debt to a few (very) funny women.

@NickNack , isn't that interesting!  I thought Joan Rivers was so humorous but she did have a crass moment or two.  I absolutely loved Phyllis Dyler and I am not a great fan of comedians.  I will read more on this.  Thanks @NickNack .

 

I also just looked up The Witch on Rotten Tomatoes if any of you want to check it out.  85 and 86% in reviews.

Hi Mersha,

How interesting!  Oh, the tales you could tell. 

I now realize how fortunate it would be to sit next to you at a tennis tounament, and then enjoy a long discussion over a delicious dinner.  I'm putting it on my bucket list.

Your friend, DEEP

George Washington Slept Here with Jack Benny and Ann Sheridan.  Funny jokes and quips from Jack, just a sweet story.  It was on TCM a few weeks ago and I taped it.  I have watched it several times.  Better than the junk they have on any TV nowadays.

Yeah, it's along the lines of Inspector Clouseau, Orient Express, no trashy scenes, F bombs. Just good ol' fashion greed from this old man's family waiting for him to die and get his money.

 

I couldn't figure out why Christopher Plummer was so infatuated with his nurse, etc. Don Johnson and Jamie Lee Curtis was funny in it. Just nice to get drawn in to a mystery who dun it and why.

 

that house on the outside ! oh My! I'm gonna research that beautiful old house see if that's a real house, is it in England ?, etc.  I'm a house lover.
