"Beauty and the Beast"; This is described as being the fantastic journey of Belle, a bright, beautiful and independent young woman who is taken prisoner by a beast in his castle. It starred Emma Watson and Dan Stevens.  To be honest, I didn't think it would do much for me except fill in some time. I was pleasantly surprised. I found quite a few things to make me laugh or smile. Has anyone else seen it yet?

Stupidity quote from an actual reporter or stupid dialog written by a "Hollywood professional"?  I find both explanations easily plausible. kkkkkkkkkk

I'll confess to the occasional fantasy of moving off to some incredibly remote village where I could live like an emperor on my life savings (currently 262 RMB plus $13.38).  The drawback is even if I went so far as to take over and have all of my whims obeyed by a few hundred peasant farmers (and their lovely daughters afafafafaf), the cost of cholesterol meds and a few other things I need to discourage the grim reaper would put me in a financial bind after a few short years.  There's no point in running off to paradise if you get sick a die too quickly there.

Guess I'll have to keep slaving over a hot keyboard a bit longer.

"HIDDEN FIGURES".
I hope that some of you folk will see it and give me your opinions. bjbjbjbjbj

I thought it was really good... except for the scene where a TV reporter says "Alan Shepard and Freedom 7 will reach an altitude of 106 miles per hour". WTF?

That particular goof was so outstandingly jarring I assumed it had to have been part of actual archival footage - as in, some actual reporter did say exactly that on live TV back in 1961. But I can't find any Google verification.

Calach, if/as your health deteriorates as you get older, you will need medication and even some one to care for you. bibibibibi I guess that is going to be the main issue to consider. bjbjbjbjbj

I Googled mistakes/errors in the movie, but couldn't find anything. Perhaps it is a tongue-in-cheek 'poke' at the stupidity of the writers of Star Wars who had Hans Solo say of the Millennium Falcon "It's the ship that made the Kessel Run in less than twelve parsecs." But, I doubt it. It seems people in Hollywood just don't understand while speed and distance are related, they're not interchangable.

Just finished "The Sympathizer" by Viet Thanh Nguyen. It won the Pulitzer for fiction and a bunch of other awards. It is simply amazing. Probably the best novel I've read in years.
