@retiredtraveler  The Aviator   sounds very good!!    

 

@doglover52  Many reviews I read for The Lady in the Van were quite negative!!  Different strokes & all I guess.  I recommended it to a friend who is quite a Maggie Smith fan, I am anxious to see how she likes it.

"The Martian" starring Matt Damon based on the book by Andy Weir which is terrific as was the movie. The story is about an astronaut ,"Mark"{Damon's character}who is mistakenly left behind on Mars after his team has completed a mission. He figures out interesting ways to survive and how he communicates with NASA.

We just rented that last week. Yes, we liked it. Very different sort of film.

 

You may want to consider The Aviator if you have any interest in Howard Hughes. Long film --- we split it into two nights.

 

For you Sci-fi fans, take a look at Interstellar. I'm a long-term sci-fi fan, but have posted before that most sci-fi films are crappola. This film was very different from others, and a lot of good theory (put in at an entertainment level) on relativity and the problems of quantum mechanics negating some of the theory (yeah, I'm nerd but the film was not a tech discussion).

Sue, I thought as much when I saw the ending.  I may watch this again at some point.

Hi LDV,this was a terrific movie,price of ticket was seeing Maggie driving the van. Its based on a true story between playright Alan Bennett and Mary Shepard. The real Bennett shows up briefly at the end when they are dedicating the building in Mary's memory. Sue
