Monday Movies Monday





Movies Monday




Have you seen an interesting movie lately?

I thought this might be an interesting post to do once in a while.  Our son gave his dad for Christmas, a box set of 100 Warner Bro. classic movies.

So we anticipate movie watching in our future.

In the meantime, I thought I would share the most recent movie we've seen.

We are not big movie goers, but last week Dick and I decided to get a date in before the winter weather hit.  We went to a matinee as we much prefer this time slot.

We had seen the previews and thought it should be a good one.  And it was.

'The Post'


There has been some argument about the authenticity of this historical presentation - whether the role of The Times was downplayed in order to play up the Washington Post.  It really didn't matter to us one way or another; it was interesting to us because of the time-line - Vietnam era.

The acting was excellent which is what we would expect from this host of actors and the director as well.

The Post

With today's focus on "fake news" this movie would have set the stage.  Do we post what is truth in spite of the consequences or do we continue the propaganda.  Or is it even necessary to print the truth?  That will forever be debated for sure.

You might enjoy seeing the trailer before deciding whether or not to spend your children's inheritance to go to the theater.

You might want to share your most recent movie and whether or not you recommend it.

  3. I've seen previews for The Post. Not sure if it's one that will interest me, but might rent it on DVD. My husband and I have been watching movies on Amazon Prime.
