BOOKS READ

The Edge of the Sea - Written in 1955, but reads like it was written within the last couple of years. It is heady though. It took me a long time to get through it and digest everything being shared. Peppered in there were some great tidbits of marine life that you don't hear much about. The worm that has little eyes on stalks, like a crab. Only once it finds a place it wants to live, it loses the eyes, builds a shell around itself and lives a stationary life. The topic was also not common, that being the life that lives in that space that is underwater at high tide and dry at low tide, and how everything works out a way to survive in those completely opposite worlds.

MOVIES WATCHED

Flatbread Face and me - better than I expected! I am always suspicious of Netflix recommendations. I can't remember the last one, but it bombed. This was a nice surprise. A better story than I expected, and not a big budget with fancy CGI. It was a nice surprise. I am not sure I would recommend it to everyone, but I would if they were movie people.  January 6.

 

Good Boys- Two for two this year, off to a good start. If you have kids, this is probably going to be awkward. If they are in the room. We laughed, out loud. I cringed, more than a few times. We were introduced to Lucas (played by Keith L. Williams) and he is one of our favorite characters at this point. I will never be able to pull off "Hey hey hey, look who it is. Me!" as well as he did. We were looking for a comedy, ad this delivered.

Good Grief - Not something I will run out and demand people watch. That said, it was a real nice change of pace movie and a good movie. There is something to watch for with every character. It is a story, a movie, and not a big budget Marvel universe thing, which is what I mean by a change of pace. If you want to see a story that relies on storytelling and acting, I will say we were happy with this choice by the end of it, time well spent. 

Champions - Like Good Boys, be prepared for some topics that you may not want to listen to with younger kids. The actors are people with intellectual disabilities, and talking with someone that helped out with a crew for the Special Olympics, this was how it is like. The writers weren't trying to make them funnier and using them as comedic props, they are just funny. I will say Woody Harrelson was my least favorite part. Part of it was the character, but part of it was it just felt wooden a lot of the time. Also, time well spent and inspired by a similarish real life story. 

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever -I saw a clip and thought, I really should watch this. Apple had a weird comment that I did not understand until I realized I had seen this already, and Apple was trying to tell me that. I still liked it. I think it was a more complete story than recent Marvel movies. Will I remember enough by the time the next one comes out, will Namor be a part of it? Who knows.
