watching: the Dick Powell show

I know everyone only has so much time in the day, and subscribes to all those channels with so many shows, but I’m going to throw this out to those of you who enjoy old television. The Dick Powell Show is an anthology show, with top-notch writing, directing and acting. I’ve watched about 20 episodes,Continue reading “watching: the Dick Powell show”

watching: The Christmas Candle (2013)

I don’t remember if this one was recommended to me by someone, or if I stumbled across it on my own. Some of you might recognize the writer, Max Lucado. He is very prolific, and includes many children’s stories in his works. I went into this movie thinking I knew exactly where it was going,Continue reading “watching: The Christmas Candle (2013)”

“This is your life, and it’s ending one minute at a time.” That phrase enters my mind quite often. It makes me think about whether what I am doing is useful, or purposeful, or necessary.

I know I’m behind theContinue reading “watching: AMC’s The Terror (2018)”

The production values are Outstanding. The lighting is used wonderfully to create tension, I hope this was nominated for an Oscar for lighting.Continue reading “watching: Hereditary (2018)”

watching: The Age of Adaline (2015)

I was working on a full day of painting, and it always helps to put in a movie to give the brain something else to think about. The Age of Adaline (2015) was one I sort-of remember hearing, “That’s a good one,” but then it passed off my radar.  I noticed it at the library,Continue reading “watching: The Age of Adaline (2015)”
