I don't watch many movies these days, but The Magnificent Seven was a good one.

I'm a history nerd so this was a pretty cool topic I wasn't keenly aware of, this isn't for everyone but it had everything for me, religious fanaticism, torture, funny Jap accents, existential crises, torture, Liam Neeson....

You beat me to the punch on that one.

I just watched the film Mission Control based upon Go, Flight!: The Unsung Heroes of Mission Control, 1965-1992 (Outward Odyssey: A People's History of Spaceflight)

They were only taking cash for the book at the screenings so I had to pass on the signed copy.

Movie is available to screen on Amazon too.

Mission Control: The Unsung Heroes of Apollo



The movie was as captivating as Apollo 13...
I really enjoyed it. The author is from Yadkinville and there was a story about him in the WS Journal

me -There's a season?

I give a full throated endorsement of Long Strange Trip for the die hard, casual fan or just fan of music in general.  What an awesome time.  What an awesome band.

I totally agree with you. The end is kind of depressing and there are some gaps, but it is well done.

Unrelated... If you are a military history buff, go see Dunkirk. It is very good. I really hate military themed flicks that are overloaded with special effects that lack realism and take liberties with History. I'd say this rates right up there with The Great Raid.

Some new, some old. I liked Kong.

I went to see Apes last Friday... is was moving along slowly and after an hour finally started to get interesting --- then a T-storm rolled through and knocked the power out --- don't think I can sit through it again--- will wait to stream it

Any of y'all planning to see Dunkirk? I'm usually not interested in war movies bc I don't think Hollywood does a very good job with them but this looks like it might be good.

Almost went to see this a few nights ago. Never really been a big Apes fan.

We plan to see it.

My wife is not one for war movies, but she wants to see it.
