    The Girl on the Train

    ★★★

    Watching this movie made me think the book might be a good read. I can tell why this story was a compelling read to many.

    The movie itself... meh. I figured out the ending about halfway through because of the glaring plot hole the circumstances would have created if that wasn't the solution. I was right.

    Emily Blunt carried this movie well, no question, and I can see why she took this challenging role. Haley Bennett also did quite well…

    My kids and I watched and they liked this by far

    Oompa Loompa doom-pa-dee-do
    This movie's still great and is one of those few

    It's a film that's aged well
    after all's said and TOLD
    A film that still works for the young
    and the OLD
    I'm glad that I could share this with my girl and my BOY
    They're smiles and laughs --- that tells me it gave them some joy

    Oompa Loompa doom-pa-dee-dee
    If you are wise, you'll listen to me

    You will rewatch this as soon as you can
    And I give this a doom-pa, loom-pa
    Big Recommend!

    Everything or Nothing: The Untold Story of 007

    ★★★★

    Being a lifelong James Bond movie fan, I have seen and read more than my fair share of Bond "making of" and "behind the scenes" materials. On top of that, I recently researched and reviewed all the Bond films in 2012 for the Now Playing Podcast's James Bond movie retrospective series, so all the information is still fresh in my mind. So the subtitle of "The Untold Story of 007" doesn't apply to me; there is absolutely no new information…
