What I've Been Watching

It's time to take a look at some of the great shows and movies I've been viewing recently. And I do recommend all of these videos.

The Handmaids Tale

This show is currently running on Hulu. It's an adaptation of Margaret Atwood's book The Handmaid's Tale. Everyone is raging on about the show. And well they are all right. It is just as good as everyone says. The story is a dark story, and I've always felt that it was a scary tale. It's something that could happen, if we all don't pay attention. It's worth a subscription to Hulu if you are looking for a great drama to watch.

My Golden Days
This a French film. The main character Paul goes back into his late teens and college days. He is remembering his trip to the USSR and his great love. This is a good film, but I really didn't like the main character of the film as he aged. He just never gets past his teenage years.

Planes Trains and Automobiles

This movie is oldie, but a goodie. It came out in 1987. It stars John Candy and Steve Martin. But I forgot that Kevin Bacon also made an appearance in this movie. It's a nice story about traveling at Thanksgiving. It is funny, it is sweet. And it is a classic. It is perfect for the night before Thanksgiving.

The Park Bench

This is maybe one of the best romantic comedies I've seen in a long time. A graduate student is tutoring another student. They meet on a park bench. They find that they are very different people, but that they are able to share things with each other that they have never talked about to others. It's sweet, and intelligent. It shows how a healthy relationship develops.

Mister Rogers And Me

Most everyone has fond memories of watching Mr. Rogers as a child. Well, if you are a certain age. We all remember him as a man who just respected everyone. You just felt comfortable with this man on your television. And this documentary follows the stories of individuals who knew him in real life. It tells about how he really was what he claimed to be. He really was a great neighbor, and he encouraged pretty much everyone he came in contact with.
