    You are welcome. Hope you like it. It's a movie that I think will stick with me for awhile.

    The movie may not be for everyone however I think the story has a great voice.

    Big movie week at my house. Watched two of them! LOL

    Watched a really interesting sci-fi flick on Netflix called Prospect. This was a visual movie, with great concept, world building, nice effects, and managed a nice little story line. The issue for me was that the story felt fairly incomplete. Maybe that was actually a good thing and means I wanted more of what they started. I'm not sure.

    3 1/2 out of 5 stars.

    Watched I Care A Lot on Netflix. The movie was interesting but full of unlikable characters, unveiled messaging, and offered up horrendously bad music. That being said I am rating this 2.5 out of 5 stars.

    The original is where it's at and always will be (for us). Of course that's just our opinion.

    We're finally getting around to watching Mr. Mercedes (Season 1,2, & 3). Really enjoying it.

    Any opinions on the Outsider Series? Worth a onetime watch?

    I feel the same way about The Stand. The original was much better.

    I think the Outsider is worth a onetime watch. I think I actually enjoyed it more than the book.

    Sorry. I don't have a service that this series is/was on.

    I do agree that Mr. Mercedes is very good.

    In regards to the movie I enjoyed the re-watch but just do not feel it. The movie has always felt flat to me. It's as if something is missing or maybe I'm just missing something.
    I have re-watched the movie and re-read the book in the last year. Although I prefer the book I do like both.

    I'm a fan of both but we all have our different taste.

    No Way Out. This was a late 80's film starring Kevin Costner. The movie was just okay, lacked depth of character, and seemed to be a bunch of broad-stroke portrayals of people in power. There was a little suspense, a little action, a little sexiness, and an interesting twist at the end. Generally speaking there were pivotal moments in the film which had me very confused about people's action's. To me it felt like they threw a bit at the wall to see what would stick.

    I wonder if this movie was just hoping to cash in on a similar film produced around the same time?

    KL Zombi. This is a Malaysian zombie film that I came across on Netflix. It's a silly, nonsensical, mess which me and my daughter giggled at for about 90 minutes. If you like schlocky stuff you may enjoy this as well. Not sure I really enjoyed the film but I didn't hate it either. There was something nice about a cheese-ball foreign language zombie film. The actors just looked like they were having fun and it was a little contagious.

    I'm not going to rate this one.

    Light of my Life. Just finished this up on Amazon Prime today. Solid 4 out of 5 for me. The movie isn't particularity breaking new ground but I thought the acting was very good, score complemented everything well, and the visual aspect of the film was appealing to me. The movie was edited together well and there were some really great lines.

    If you like the art house style movies this may be something to check out.
