Cry Macho Sunday, Sep 19 2021 

I don’t think that this is the best film he’s done – but this is a pleasant little film. Mr. Eastwood’s character is asked by an old friend to locate and return his son – who is somewhere in Mexico. It’s a road picture. Old man , teenage Mexican. The kindness of strangers also figures in this film in the Senora who most graciously feeds them. My favorite line is ” I can’t cure OLD”. I don’t agree with his politics – but even in advanced age – Mr. Eastwood is a fine actor and director.

This is an English submarine series that is very absorbing. One of my favorite actresses – Suranne Jones, plays a policewoman detective who is sent on board to investigate a murder. The animosity between the Queen’s navy and the police doesn’t help matters. The pacing of this series is superb. Can’t wait to see the next installment!

Dream Horse Wednesday, Jun 16 2021 

I love horses and yes, I have have rode some in Colorado at a dude ranch. – so this movie really appealed to me. Toni Collette is great as the mind behind the scheme to make some extra cash and excitement to her and her friend’s lives. Of course there would be setbacks – the horse they end up with lost his mother at his birth and some other things happen later on – but he bounces back. All I can say is the Welsh horses have a real tough time of it – not only do they need to be fast – but nimble too – they must also jump over hurdles as well!

This series has less adherence to the previous film of the same name. So far anyway .But it is fast moving and a rousing action / adventure story. The acting is quite good -I certainly got involved in the plot. And my experience with offerings by Apple has been very good.

A

A different sort of role for Kate Winslet -a gritty , no nonsense cop. This offering is low key and almost too true to life. She is a divorcee with a lot on her mind, as her ex plans another wedding. And then a dead body shows up to complicate matters. And yet she has some budding romantic interest. And past disappearances that have yet to be solved. What’s next?

Too Close Sunday, Apr 18 2021 

A young mother does an unspeakable act and appears to have no memory of it. Emily Watson plays a forensic psychiatrist who is asked to evaluate her. There is a strange bond between the two, some similarities. What caused the crack in the patient’s psyche? What is the nature of the bond between them? Can Emily’s character help the young mother or is this a hopeless case? Well, tune in to find out. The first installment is promising.

Land Saturday, Apr 10 2021 

An outstanding directorial and acting effort by Robin Wright. A big change in role from the First Lady in House of Cards. After a personal tragedy , a middle aged woman decides to purchase a cabin in the wilderness. She finds she is not really prepared for the demands of dealing with animals ( a bear who interrupts a trip to the outdoor privy) and the loneliness and privations of winter which is longer in the mountains. During the winter she is rescued by a man well versed in survival in the mountains. He brings a nurse in to help her regain her strength. But this really isn’t about romance. They have similar tragedies to deal with. It is a truly sincere and deep friendship that heals both of them. I really recommend this film.

The Father Tuesday, Mar 30 2021 

Anthony Hopkins is exceptionally good in this movie based on a theatre play. It is quite cleverly done . The way the characters are shuffled around the audience becomes as confused as the Alzheimer’s patient. I would expect to see an Oscar nomination. The wealth of emotion and intelligence in this portrayal is striking.

Condor Tuesday, Mar 23 2021 

Another series that successfully reconfigures the work in the movie – past. In this case “Six Days of the Condor”. Max Irons is engaging as the lead – He has good genes in his favor. William Hurt adds a touch of class as well as other veteran actors. Good writing, great pace. Action adventure fans – rejoice!
