Scooby-Doo! and the Gourmet Ghost (movie night with the kids). 

While watching this, I realized "the gang" must be ageless vampires, because they haven't changed, but it's obviously present-day, because they're using smart phones and drones.  :laugh:

Got around to Solo last week.  Not awful.  But I do have a decent "suspension of standards" ability when it comes to certain types of movies; I won't be comparing it to the Godfather anytime soon.

The '95 BBC miniseries w/ Colin Firth & Jennifer Ehle is the only choice in our household (or so I've been told).  The kids watched it for the first time about a month ago and loved it; my oldest was literally on the edge of her seat during the walk down the country road (before the wedding).

I haven't watched that one yet; I'll have to see if I can find it for streaming.

It should be the only choice, period.  Well worth watching.

I’d have to buy it.  That significantly reduces the watching chances.  :laugh:

I think Amazon Prime has it, but not for free.  It is 6-ish hours. (But worth it.)

I did not know that Michel Legrand died last year. He apparently became a Russian Orthodox prior to his death. I first heard an instrumental version of "I will wait for you" at Travis Air Force base in 1967, seeing off a friend from boy scouts who joined the navy and was flying out to Okinawa. I remembered the song but did not know what it was until about three years later when it played on the classical music station KKHI in San Francisco. It is from the movie Les Parapluies de Cherbourg. It is a great movie, very romantic, very realistic, vibrant colors, wonderful musical score, sung throughout like an opera, and it is on vimeo:

Doing a re-watch of the MCU. All of the films. Just finished Captain America Civil War. Not a huge Cap fan as a superhero, but Civil War and Winter Soldier are my 2 fav MCU films. Probably b/c they're spy films just with superheroes.

Both the people who made the movie and the people who are whipping themselves into a frenzy over it:

Your own or that of someone else? Can you share, or do you want to keep a wall of separation between the outside and here?

Not mine; I just move commas. 😊 I haven't even seen the first one.

Boykka Undisputed.

First fight movie I ever saw with Orthodox Christian faith as a main theme.

Basic plot:
Interestingly enough the main character is a Russian Orthodox Christian MMA fighter who travels with an icon in his duffel bag, consults with his priest, and who kills his opponent in the ring accidentally. The whole movie is about what his faith motivates him to do for any family that his dead opponent might have left behind.

Awards:
Scott Adkins who played the main character won two Jackie Chan Movie Awards in two categories for Best Fight and Best Action Movie Actor. Gotta love Scott's Cheat 720 Kick form

...speaking of which Scott put out a great instructional on the Cheat 720
Prerequisites: best to first know the 540 and Tornado
