Don't know if there is already a thread on this subject but since a couple of our trips have been cancelled or postponed, my wife are exercising more (primarily walking since the YMCA is closed) and watching more movies and series. Not surprising that Netfllix Stock is doing so well. Here are some movies/series we have been watching:
The Man Who Invented Christmas - I love this movie that wasn't really commercially successful but it's one of my recent favs. It is basically the biography of Charles Dickens that shows his ups and downs even during his successful years. It goes through his time of writing "Christmas Carol" after he had 3 relative flops in a row. Even geniuses have bad times! Anyway the man who plays Charles Dickens is Dan Stevens (of Downton Abbey fame) and he is terrific. He is so "funny" with his expressions but he also shows his "inner demons" very well. Great movie in my opinion.
About Time - Another more recent movie fav of mine starring Domhnall Gleeson, Rachel McAdams, Bill Nighy and other great actors. For anyone who likes a family movie coupled with a little time travel, this is a great one.
Homeland - My wife got me into this Showtime Series starring Claire Danes, Mandy Patinkin, Damian Lewis and others. Most episodes are quite good and I have become a big fan of Claire Danes.
Downton Abbey - Again my wife got me into this great Series and I loved it. Some of my favorite actors here are Maggie Smith, Michelle Dockery, Hugh Bonneville, Dan Stevens ,Elizabeth McGovern and a whole hosts of great actors.
I guess I have been become a late big fan of British comedy and drama. We are also watching a whole bunch of movies that a set during the World War 2 era. Thank God for Netflix, Prime and other Streaming Services. TV has really gotten us by during this tough time of staying at home.
