Soooo… Anyone seen any good movies lately? Read any good books? I recently watched “Hunt for the Wilderpeople” (in theaters a while back). One of the best movies I’ve seen in recent years!! Kind of a comedy drama. Sam Neill is amazing! Looking forward to “Crazy, Rich Asians”. Hated the new “Mission: Impossible”.

Sara: I’ve been trying to watch more movies recently… 

Recent viewings:

  • Million Dollar Baby: depressing af but very good, also what happened to Hilary Swank
  • Ex Machina: soooooo good, Alicia Vikander is a goddess 
  • Gone Baby Gone: had to turn on subtitles to understand the Boston accents
  • The Departed: had to turn on subtitles to understand the Boston accents, also Matt Damon can go away PERMANENTLY
  • Jurassic Park: scary af… don’t fuck with dinosaurs
  • The Constant Gardener: oishk…. Ralph Fiennes is such a good actor and Rachel Weisz is perfection
  • A Most Violent Year: Jessica Chastain in this movie is a real mood.

Send me your recs! Bonus points if they’re on Netflix, Hulu, or Amazon Prime.

I saw Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri and Call Me By Your Name just recently in summer open-air movie events (we’ve had the best summer in ages here), and The Darkest Hour in a normal cinema. I might watch The Post with Meryl Streep soon, even if only for nostalgic reasons. But for the upcoming weekend I just bought tickets for The Square, open air again.
