Thank you very much for once again sending this list out. I have seen Harriet multiple times and I really enjoyed it! I look forward to watching the rest.

As usual, love your reviews.  The virus stuff has finally impacted Chapala - shuts down on so many businesses including our two movie theaters.  Bummer.  Will try Netflix - mean while - have a plethora of books to tide me over.  Hope you two stay well.  U.S. news is bleak.

Annette and I are staying in doing what we can to stay safe. I have Netflix, although I must say that it is not the same as seeing a movie on the big screen. So here a few quick comments on what I’ve seen on the TV screen:

         Dolemite is my Name: I had never heard of Rudy Ray Moore before I heard about this movie, and while I think Eddie Murphy did a good job of portraying Moore on screen, I don’t think I missed much by not knowing him. Grade C

      The Ballard of Buster Scruggs: This is a Coen Brothers film which is made up of several short stories, starring a group of five actors. The stories are all interesting in different ways. A couple of them are pretty grim, and at least one is majorly creepy. Grade B+

       The Highway Men: Kevin Costner and Woody Harrelson team up to being us the story of the two Texas Rangers who tracked down and killed Bonnie & Clyde. It was pretty much a road trip movie. The stars are what makes the movie worth watching. Grade A

      The Irishman: This is a crime movie destined to go down as one of the best original crime stories of all time. It is based on the book about the assassin who claims to be the killer of the Teamsters Union President, Jimmy Hoffa. Maybe, but no one I think will ever know for certain. The movie has a great cast, great CGI and makeup--just great, period. Grade A+

            In the last few weeks, I'e been having a field day with my VHS (which thankfully still works!)!  I've revisited Five Easy Pieces, The Heart is a Lonely Hunter, The Gathering, Amadeus, Annie Hall, Ironweed, Midnight Cowboy (it still holds up all these years later!), Dead Zone, Cinderella (Disney's Brandy/Whitney Houston version), Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, and The Indian in the Cupboard.  Still in the queue are Taxi Driver and Empire of the Sun

            The Indian in the Cupboard (1995) is a kids' film, but it is so sweet, and so imaginative.  Screenwriter was Melissa Mathison (Harrison Ford's first wife), who also wrote E.T.  I recommend it to anyone out there with young children or grandchildren. Richard Jenkins and Lindsay Crouse were also in it!

            Yes, it's time to check out some new stuff on Netflix, etc. - I'll get there.  Do hope you're both staying safe - can't wait to return to normal life if there is such a thing.  Cheers!
