Weekend movies

Like everyone, lately we’ve been watching a lot of TV. Here are some of the movies and shows we watched over the weekend:

  • The Irishman: An epic 3 and a half hours. I’d like to rewatch it now that I know where the story was going and more about the historical backdrop.
  • SNL at Home: Zoom sketch + Weekend Update were worth it alone. Great to see the cast adapting as best they can without the stage.
  • HORSE tournament: If the NBA hadn’t suspended the season, this week would be the last before the playoffs started. HORSE had just the right balance of lightheartedness and competition.
  • Emma: No regrets on this $20 rental. I think it’s in the top few Jane Austen movies behind Pride and Prejudice (2005) and Sense and Sensibility (1995).

And a few from last week and earlier:

  • Tiger King: Difficult to look away once you start the first episode. Can’t decide if I regret watching the whole series.
  • Onward: Loved this. I thought after the trailer I knew what to expect, but it surprised me.
  • The Imagineering Story: There’s something in this 6-part series for most Disney fans. Next best thing to experiencing the Disney parks while they are closed.

Hope everyone’s staying safe and healthy at home. 📺
