Anyone seen "Don't look up"? Jennifer Lawrence and Leonardo DiCaprio movie.

It's received poor reviews but also seems to have reached the top of the most viewed list on Netflix.

FYI, I've not & I'm not in a hurry to see it.

I saw it. I thought it was pretty funny but definitely not in the same league as, say, "Airplane" and it does perhaps hit too close to the mark for some viewers.

I thought it decent but not quite enough tongue-in-cheek like say, Dr. Strangelove.

I also thought it was too blatant. Satire needs to be a little more subtle.

I binged "Wolf Like Me" on Peacock last weekend. A very nice modern take on werewolf stories. Stars Isla Fisher and Josh Gad are good, but the little girl is a standout.

"Jack Reacher" on Amazon. Two thumbs up in my house.

"CODA" on Apple TV is a well done feel good story.

I re-watched "The Natural" a few days ago. A lot of good performances by supporting actors. Glenn Close is gorgeous.

I've started watching the PBS NewsHour again after seeing some mentions in the WC. Thanks to whoever that was.

"Drive My Car" is very good. Murakami, who wrote the short story on which much of the movie is based, is such a Beatles fan.

I got no car and it's breaking my heart
But I've found a driver and that's a start"

Listening to our babes when they got somethin' to say? Good idea.

We were planning to watch something else last night but couldn't stop watching Pelosi's Power, a Frontline documentary that launched after the PBS NewsHour ended. The commentary and photography are as mind blowing as her story which is saying something.

We watched "Worst Person in the World". Two thumbs up in our house. I enjoyed the other two movies in the "Oslo Trilogy" which were heavier.

"Benjamin Franklin" on PBS is very good. Talk about larger than life.

I agree. I haven't watched most Ken Burns documentaries because they're too long, but 4 hours about a great statesman was about the right amount. It's hard to believe one man did so much.

They didn't shy away from mentioning his faults (he was a racist and slave owner for much of his early life, but he eventually realized it was wrong, and he didn't treat his wife very well), but his achievements far overshadowed them.

Nero wolfe, the Italian version on MHz, is well written, well acted and fun to watch.

For anyone who enjoyed some of the earlier episodes of "Better Call Saul" but didn't feel compelled to watch more, I recommend the finale. Will probably watch some episodes again and happily skip others. The Rhea Seehorn character is a doll.

Rhea Seehorn was brilliant in the courtroom scene without a single word of dialogue. I watched every episode and now am onto Paul Giamatti in Billions.

We recently watched season one of "Trapped", a murder mystery set in a small town in Iceland's north country. We enjoyed the scenery and fine performances by Olafur Darri Olafsson (Andri) and Ilmur Kristjansdottir (Hinrika).


Edit: Season 2 was not worth watching IMO.

I'm on the fence about the new version of "A League of Their Own". I'm enjoying it, but it could be titled "The L Word with Baseball". Does everything have to be about race and sexual orientation these days?

It certainly seems so.
