    Walked out of the remake of The Manchurian Candidate with Meryl Streep. I wonder what the Angela Lansbury version's like...

    Another one that I walked out of: American Hustle.

    Doesn't seem to me that the person who chooses the movies for the community room listens or cares what others want (a rant for another day, okay?)

    I'm going to watch an anime later to make up for the community room feature...

    I took out Hidden Figures from the university's library to watch instead of what was shown in the community room (Primal Fear.)

    After seeing several of the neighbors leave the community room before the end of the "main feature", I figure that I got the better deal. I think that I'll invest in my own copy of Hidden Figures if/when possible (teach the jerks a lesson on how to choose movies. *evilgrin*)

    Just watched a bit claiming Kevin Costner's character didn't actually exist (Hollywood white saviour) I am sure the Sheldon character did...
    Also indicated they didn't let her in, she had to watch from her desk.

    Watched a movie from 1973 (I think) titled The Poseidon Adventure, which I had taken out of the school library.

    It's well worth the time to watch it along with the additional content on the second DVD. They include a discussion on whether or not there are religious undertones, including the classic "hero's journey", Dante's Inferno and the allegory of a child's wisdom. Oh, and one couple representing "family"/"life" (Jack Albertson's character and Shelly Winters' character.)

    The Wind Rises, a Studio Ghibli anime based on the designer of the airplanes that bombed Pearl Harbor, Hawaii and were used by Japanese pilots/"zeros" through WWII. He wanted to be a pilot, but he was terribly nearsighted, so he flew via the pilots who used his plane.

    1991's Only Yesterday and 1968's Charly. Both were rather hard to watch, but kinda worth it.

    If one's read the novel Flowers for Algernon, you will be able to follow Charly imho.

    Disney's The Muppets is the current title in the DVD player (it's the "reboot" of The Muppet Show from 2011.) I'm going to attempt to watch the DVDs for the first season of the "original" The Muppet Show later. :oops:

    Spirited Away just finished and Howl's Moving Castle is starting on my computer (where I watch all of the DVDs that I either own or take out from the library.) I have a bowl of white cheddar popcorn and another bowl with a bunch of Moondrops grapes for snacking (might make a couple of tacos later to nosh.)
