    Good will hunting

    And other old movies. It seems like Netflix is my love life these days. Is anyone else feeling socially isolated this winter?

    Our Souls at Night

    Robert Redford touched on a topic nobody has touched upon. Remember, Robert Redford is 80 years old and Jane Fonda is 79 years old.

    Our Souls at Night a Netflix Film.

    Gus Van Sant directed GWH a long time favorite of mine. Van Sant's latest movie on John Callahan "Don't Worry, He Won't Get Far on Foot" is available for rent on Amazon Prime.

    I was a consultant on that flim, although for just a few scenes. As a longtime Callahan fan, I was disappointed in the final film. I don't think they really captured his sarcasm, and anger at all.

    From reading Callahan's book years ago I agree with you. While I don't regret watching the movie I too feel a lot more anger and sarcasm came across in the book.

    The book left me feeling there was a lot of anguish in his own words that wasn't captured in the film.

    Congrats on your consulting work.

    I saw the Callahan movie in an empty theater. I was the only one there. How did it do at the box office?

    I saw "Our Souls at Night." It was pretty good.

    Not well, and reviews were poor too. I thought best performance was Jonah Hill.

    I enjoyed "The Big Sick" if you are looking for something to watch.

    I could have talked throughout the movie with no one complaining. Callahan flick results could discourage future films of its genre. However, "Me Before You" and the "Intouchables must have fared better. I met an actress from (Callahan): real-life paraplegic Santina Muha when she lived in New jersey. DWHWGFOF is too long to write. I will try to find "Bick Sick" on Netflix.
