Ford v Ferrari.

Wonderful. Marvelous.  Even for those who don’t know anything about cars.  You’ll laugh.  You’ll cry.  You’ll cheer.  You’ll (want to) swear.  Highly recommended by all in the CrowsNest.

ETA:  I just found out that the racetrack Miles is on at the end of the film is actually now a mall I lived about a mile away from when CrowMan was assigned to March Air Force Base.

Roper the nudity is in the context of seduction for spying purposes.   You can easily fast forward and anticipate it.  I think it was the third  or fourth season where it becomes more prevalent.    I think Americans is really good for a discussion of our world and what our moral responsibilities are.

Just getting back into The Good Place. Very intelligent, very funny, and the swearing is humorously censored. The other great watch was Picard, though you need to like Star Trek

I like "The Good Place." I think Kristen Bell is incredibly talented. I've never been a big fan of Ted Danson. Because the plot is so neurotic at times, I can only take it in small doses. Once a week is good. I can't imagine binge watching it.

Extraction (Netflix).  I enjoyed it.  I like action shoot 'em up type movies.

Picard is on my list of shows to watch.  I'm a Trek fan.

The Repair Shop (Netflix).  A British series where people bring in lovely and nostalgic pieces to be fixed.  I’ve seen a clock that survived a Japanese camp, a Victorian magic lantern box, an accordion from 1917, an intricately carved piano bench on which a puppy decided to have a nibble (or twenty), antique Davenport nearly destroyed by burglars, and two electronic Daleks from 1975.  To hear the stories of these pieces, and the joy when they’re returned, practically good as new, makes me smile.  If you’re someone who appreciates this sort of thing, it’s low-key and sweet.

I’ve watched him here and there with CrowMother, but CrowMan has recently become mesmerised with Bob Ross: Beauty is Everywhere.  Bob Ross was the artist with the big perm that showed public television viewers how to paint something remarkable in 30 minutes.  A collection of some of his shows are available again.  I do love his mantra, “There are no mistakes; just happy accidents”.  He was a drill sergeant in the military in his pre-public television days, and swore he would find a job where he never had to raise his voice again.  He is calm, soothing, and something I can put on for CrowMother when that sort of thing is required.

I bumped into a show called Still Standing on Amazon Prime. It stars Jonny Harris, a Canadian comedian (also in Murdoch Mysteries which is my first introduction to him). He travels to towns in Canada that are struggling, mostly due to young people leaving or the railroad or something not coming to/through the town any more. It's about a half hour long and he talks to various people in the town and then puts on a comedy show for the town about their quirks. There are some innuendos and an occasional bleeped word, but it's mostly been very enjoyable to learn about little towns in Canada.

The Eagle.  A historical fiction about the lost Roman legion (9th Legion) and an attempt to recover their eagle standard from the tribes of Scotland.

Pretty good movie.

I'm in desperate need of something funny and easy to watch, so I've started The Office again.

"King of the Hill" is pretty funny and easy to watch. Having lived in Texas for 18 years, I really appreciate all the stereotypes  :) My wife just rolls her eyes when I do my Boomhauer impression. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VA70HXN1CdA

There was a sweet old guy in our ward that sounded exactly like Boomhauer. It was really hard to be reverent when he prayed.

"Dangit, Bobby!"

"Madame Secretary." This series improved exponentially. The first couple of episodes were lackluster. I almost quit watching it. Michelle and I are on S1E10 now, and I have to say that this may be the best series since "West Wing" in that genre. It even uses the walk and talk style of filming occasionally. The dialogue was a bit amateur at first and the dude who plays the president overacts far too often. And there was always a happy ending. As the series progressed, the writing became much more complex and nuanced. I'm really growing to like the diverse and quirky characters.  Te'a Leoni. The last time I saw her was in "Family Man" with Nicolas Cage. Yawn. Now, she is eminently likeable as the Secretary of State--vulnerable and conflicted when trying to balance pragmatism with morality, but tough and decisive when the job requires it.

It's on Netflix. Give it a try!

I heard about a recent survey (taken in the COVID era) asking people what movie they would most like to watch on screen with a big audience. Before hearing the results, I guessed "Independence Day." That wasn't it.

The top choice was "Jaws," chosen by over 90% of those polled. The original "Star Wars" movie placed second.

So I watched "Jaws" a couple of nights ago.

My wife and I watched Hamilton last week and just finished watching (again) with our sons tonight.  Even with having the soundtrack and knowing the music pretty well, the visual aspect made it much more impactful.  This time, she made sure that we had a box of tissues on hand for the second act.  "Quiet Uptown" and "Who Lives, Who Dies" had all of us needing those.  Get the Disney plus one week trial just to watch that if you don't see anything else on their.

The nine year old has decided that he wants to watch "The Princess Bride" every day for the last few days.  Good taste in that child.
I have been watching one or two episodes of Clone Wars every night for the last couple of weeks and now am on Season Six, the one that they just made to tie it into Star Wars: Rebels more.
If you have Netflix, then I would recommend The Dragon Prince as well.
