Watched some rentals on flights this weekend. Real Steel was surprisingly entertaining, and I was also surprised that I did not want to program a robot to beat the kid in it. I usually hate movie kids, but he was pretty benign.
Also watched The Flowers of War. I was curious about it because it is one of those movies that critics absolutely hated, but viewers seem to really like. On rottentomatoes, Top critics put it at 21%, but viewers average rating is 3.9 and 78% liked it.
I did not hate it like critics, but it was hard to take the setup seriously, and I am never a fan of one dimensional villains, but I get that it would be hard to give emotional depth to the perpetrators of the invasion. That aside, the characters in the church were engaging and it is definitely watchable.
Also rewatched Drugstore Cowboy. Still as good as the day I first watched it in 1989. "You never **** me, and I always have to drive!" -Diane
