Danger Close, an Australian movie  about the Vietnam War. Pretty good and seems to be close to what actually happened, though it would have been interesting to see some of it from the Vietnamese side.

Whew ... this book marks my goal of 3 books released in a year (tomorrow is my 1st-year-publishing birthday  :banana:):

Mother Savant is a sequel to my first book.



It is now 2244 and the all-female society of Arkite is on the brink of revolution. Only the return of the Mother Savant can hope to maintain order.

Savant Elise Jackson, Arkite’s supreme leader, is stricken with terrible grief over the recent loss of her lover. She has spent the last two years with her assistant, Sara, trying to repair and genetically engineer her lover’s damaged body and mind.

But the Viceroy of Pyramid City and her followers in the Savant Council have no interest in squandering the city’s resources for Elise’s personal gain. With the help of the mainframe AI, they will vie for power, even attempting collusion with Sara and sabotage.

And even if her enemies fail and Elise somehow manages to revive her lover, Elise knows she’ll have to vie for something she covets even more—her lover’s love. For Sara once loved her just as much, if not more.

Dancer with Sergei Polunin.

I thought this was going to be a movie but it turned out to be a documentary of Polunin's journey from gymnast to principal dancer with the Royal Ballet of London. Interesting story. His family went their separate ways, moving to different countries for jobs so they could send him to ballet school, first in Kiev and then in London.

I can't wait to see it. Mendes is a great storyteller.

SPECTRE is the exception that proves the rule.  :hehe


I'm not gonna lie. I enjoyed Spectre. But I agree with you. It's not even close to a great film.

That said, I'll bet even Gordon Ramsey makes an uninspired risotto now and then. :)

Hustlers

Scorsese-light. This isn't Constance Wu's best work and she's central which holds it back a little, but the supporting cast is great and the "Based on true events" story is engaging.

1917.

Fairly harrowing, but astonishing filmmaking that's basically real-time with no cuts.

Strictly Ballroom is so fun!

Saw the trailer for 1917 when we went to see Hidden Life. I daresay that Hidden Life is one of the best movies of the decade--beautifully shot, the natural lighting, the closeups of the faces, the emotions, the way the story unfolds at such a leisurely pace, yet feeling just right, giving me the space to process as the characters are processing their choices.

I watched Venom the other night.  It was okay.

My husband watched the first half of Aquaman before I woke up Saturday.  I watched the last half and enjoyed it very much.

Basic Instinct 2 on network TV.  I only got about a fourth of the way through.  It was just terrible.  I will never get that half hour back.
