We are on the last 7 episodes of Dexter. Was really enjoying it until end of season 6, don't like the turns it's taken but have to watch the last episodes to see how it ends.

I got a free on demand movie coupon from AT&T, so I watched Frozen last night. It was really good and I may have to buy this one.

One of the best movies I have watched in a long time... The Book Thief...
Frozen..too much singing
The Hobbits one and two... too much fighting

We watched Sin City 2 a couple of nights ago, I didnt like it at all, disjointed and I cant stand Eva Green the so called actress, she cant act to save herself. I dont recommend the movie.

We watched "Fury" last night, the tank movie with Brad Pitt, now I really liked that one, we will buy a copy for sure, beautifully filmed too.

We recently saw The Imitation Game and really liked it. We had fairly recently watched The Bletchley Circle and really liked it too. I had never heard about all that and now a movie and TV show based on the code breaking. I know it's because it must have just been de-classified. Very interesting. Now I need to rent the earlier Bletchley Circle season and catch up on it.

We also saw the third Hobbit Movie at New Years and we like them because we liked the books.

As you know I am a big Outlander fan and the 1st half of the 1st season is coming out on DVD in March and the second half of the season will begin in April. I can't wait although it is certainly not as good as the book, of course.

I'm reading 'The Book Thief'.  How in the world did they make a movie from that?  Even though the narrator keeps warning its going to break my heart, I can't put it down for very long.

I watched a couple of episodes of Outlander but it didnt do anything for me, as you said, the books are so good, how could anything compare?

DH put Gamer on with Gerard Butler last night, I dont mind that one

Has anyone seen the American Sniper movie? I so seldom watch movies, but this one sounds like I might enjoy the arm-chair psychology side of it. Unless it's too gruesome. I can handle the blood and guts unless it's just way too graphic.

The film is based on the 2007 nonfiction book of the same name by Marcus Luttrell with Patrick Robinson. Set during the war in Afghanistan, Lone Survivor dramatizes the unsuccessful United States Navy SEALs counter-insurgent mission Operation Red Wings, during which a four-man SEAL reconnaissance and surveillance team was tasked to track down and kill Taliban leader Ahmad Shah.


Has anyone seen any good movies recently? Doesnt seem to be much at all at the video store, Laura like Maleficent and I hired The Lobster, it was a funky dark story, I liked it, I like European 'tales' certainly wouldnt appeal to everyone but if you like the unusual or art house, here is a blurb

"The Lobster is a 2015 absurdist dystopian comedy-drama[5][6] film directed, co-written, and co-produced by Yorgos Lanthimos, co-produced by Ceci Dempsy, Ed Guiney, and Lee Magiday, and co-written by Efthymis Philippou. In the film's setting, singles are given 45 days to find a romantic partner or otherwise be turned into animals.[7] It stars Colin Farrell as a newly-single man trying to find someone so he can remain human, and Rachel Weisz as a woman with whom he attempts to form a relationship. The film is co-produced by Ireland, United Kingdom, Greece, France and the Netherlands.

It was selected to compete for the Palme d'Or at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival and won the Jury Prize. It was shown in the Special Presentations section of the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival."

I rarely watch movies these days. When I do, I generally prefer romantic comedies or nature films. DH generally hates movies.

I have been binge watching Mozart in the Jungle. To my amazement, DH is watching British mysteries and comedies. He has always avoided the ones I watched because he had trouble with accents, in part because he is a bit hard of hearing.

I am all caught up on Mozart in the Jungle and can't wait for the next season to get here. LOVE IT!!! Has anyone watched any other series on Amazon? The only other one I've followed is Bosch.

Marynel, DH struggles with British accents at times, he has got better with it I guess after living in Australia so long with similar word prounciations etc but when it comes to a thick Irish accent or Scottish, he cant understand and thing and wonders how on earth I have any idea what they are talking about LOL I have to interpret.

I dont watch anything on Amazon sorry Buzzysma so not sure whats available. We do watch the TV series, stuff like the Syfy channel and HBO etc but we just buy the series on DVD. Recently we have watched season 1 & 2 of a sci fi series called The Expanse, Canadian production, we really enjoyed it, gritty industrial sci fi not the star trek soap opera type. DH is back watching Justified again, I watch and read a book at the same time. As a family we are rewatching the series The Office, Laura's first time and she loves it.

Helen - I watched the first two seasons of The Expanse on the SyFy channel but I don't think there's going to be a third.

I struggled with the British accent at first, but finally got used to it. I haven't watched Amazon for awhile, but do have hulu and Netflix, mainly because I cannot stand commercials. Also, there were some regular TV programs (The Office is one and CSI is another) that DH couldn't stand to watch, so now I'm catching up on a few of them. If there is a current program I want to watch, I set them to record so I can skip through the commercials. I also read and/or work on bindings while "watching" TV.
