I watched the Waco series on Netflix. The Waco siege is actually the first news story I ever remember as a kid. I was 6 when it happened, but I still remember it. I enjoyed the series a lot. Although I believe the Branch Davidians set the fire, I believe the FBI and ATF both messed things up as well.

6. I Love You Phillip Morris...I agree that Jim Carey does one of, it not the best, proformance of his life in this movie.  In a lot of his roles he seems silly more than anything else, but this actually was a fuller, more senious and real proformance...the characters good and bad points were brought out in a rather realistic weay.

2. RBG....She has been one of my favorite SC Justices and her work has my great admiration.

1. Mrs Harris goes to Paris....a wonderful "old style" movie, and I was very happy with the ending....encourages us to think that dreams always have a chance of coming true...no matter what time in life we are in....although we may have to look for the positive outcome...and it may take a little time.  Good movie.

9. Hollywood without Makeup--interesting but much of it were stars that I was unfamilar with, including the guy narrating.  I think I might have been more familar with them if I had had a TV before I was about 15, (1968) and if I had come from a home that was more into movie goiing.

4.  Gaga Five Feet Two--She is an icon for many of the younger LGBTQ population based in huge measure on her song "I was Born this way" which tells people that they are as God intended them to be and as beautiful as they are.  So, I was already in awe of her before watching this film, but you are right, she doesn't let it all hang out, with no real apologies or putting on any airs.  Very entertaining woman and I think as long as she wants she can keep being a star and amazing her fans in new and creative ways.

I knew ALL the old Hollywood stars!!!!  :O)

Yeah, not everybody (or even very many) were raised in a home without a television untll I was in the early to mid teens...AND forbidden to go to movies because it was considered a sin by my very religious father. {#bag-on-head.gif}

10. Waco  -- I think the best response I can come up with is 'awful....what a mess" I ended up feeling sorry for people on both sides.

8.  Styling Hollywood -- ok, honest reaction, I watched the first episode, and started the second and while I kind of enjoyed the interaction between the  two men (and I thought they were very handsome) I may or may not finish because I am not sure I want to watch the fashion part, and the struggle to come up with the prettiest dress etc.

Besides when I finished with Waco I saw another show called "unstable" with I think Rob Lowe and it is "calling to me".  :)



I've got Unstable on my list to watch! :O)

Yeah, it is funny....I have watched all but the last two episodes and will probably go back and some more of Syling.

I've been watching "Daisy and the Six"--not my type of music but interesting stories!!

Ok, I will check and see what that is about after I at least finish the last two episodes of Unstable.
