First up was Europa Report. I have read the synopsis on that movie ever week for several weeks. Netflix's lowish rating and the "B" movie plot line put me off over and over and over. Then a righteous ass on reddit suggested it was decent, underrated SF. Watched it. The space science was on par with 2001: A Space Odyssey which this movie gave a tip of the hat to. Just before they played Zarathustra, I told Stacey they were going to find the obelisk. The special effects were pretty damn good. The acting was good. It was good. Right up to the end. A solid 3.

Last night we watched Enough Said. This movie did pretty good with reviews everywhere. The lead makes here living as an out-call masseuse. She has the right table. She has the right moves. Completely believable. That was fabulous attention to detail! We thoroughly enjoyed this movie and as it neared the end, I was sure I was going to give it a 4 out of 5. A great love story with people in their 40s. Then it came to an end, then it started up again and came to a second end. And lost a point. Doesn't anyone in the movies every have to suffer the consequences of their actions? If you want a great movie, turn it off when the daughters leave for college. If you want a good movie, watch it to the end. Your choice.
