Becky and I saw Hell or High Water, last year stuff I know. We were both unsure this was a good idea when we went but Becky liked it well enough and I thought it was very good. I saw it as real. Not people I know, not people I ever knew, but still I believed it entirely. That's a job well done.

Side note: It was shown in theater that responds to requests. The guy who asked for this one did so as a tribute to his recently deceased wife. Becky requested that if I do anything such as that I should pick a somewhat more cheerful movie. I don't know the guy so I minded my own business but I would have liked to have heard his story.

I thought this was a pretty good movie, too. Not too far-fetched and well acted.

I thought La La Land OK but kind of over-hyped. Haven't seen Moonlight. I was impressed and really enjoyed Lion.


The opening scene in La La Land is brilliant in these days of green screens. Yes, Gosling can't sing, but the rest is wonderful.

I turned off Moonlight about 2/3 the way through. Was bored out of my mind.

Lion was OK - kind of a nice story.

I thought Gosling was better than Stone in the first half of the movie. The last 30 minutes dragged to me. The initial scene was indeed a highlight.
