I like sappy movies and TV shows

Perfect book for a hot summer weekend. It is by the creator of How I Met Your Mother and has the same ensemble feel of many rich characters with intersecting lives - some growing up, some not quite yet. Rich story, spot on characterization of addiction to social media and how much information is online. Someone should build MeWantThat.

Found this documentary very touching and richly filmed with three families and teenagers connecting with their adoption stories and history in China,

I can’t explain why I like these fish out of water, famous celebrities get together with a random regular person. (Marry Me is another). But… I loved the Valet. I laughed out loud many times and felt the emotional roller coaster they took us on. It holds together surprisingly well and the acting is excellent.

Yup. It’s good as everyone says. And better. And the cliffhanger… can’t wait for season 2.

It was a fine murder mystery whodunit. Nothing surprising but it holds together. A fun watch if you are in the mood. The Egypt scene setting was gorgeous

An alternate history of the US-Russia Space Race and foreign relations. A character study of astronauts in the program. A world where we started settling the moon. From the individual family stories up to geopolitics - this is just an incredible watch. Not sure why it took me so long to discover it. Bravo!

The concept here is even better than the movie. But Ryan Reynolds is a good hero returning to his past. The Zoe Saldana storyline seems like there could have been an even better story to tell. But all in all a very good sci fi watch

Movies | Science Fiction

If you are in the mood for a high production value romantic comedy, this fits the bill. There is nothing surprising in this film, and they under explore the impact of fame which could have been quite deep. But… it’s sappy, lovey, and hits all the right notes if you just want a rom-com that you can take in at face value.

I loved the way this unfolded with different perspectives on the same night. Episode 3 the musical was one of my favorites. And the show stuck the landing - great wrap up. So much fun!
