Went to see "It's a beautiful day in the neighbourhood" movie today. Highly recommend it. Insightful & compassionate, with interesting weaving of the story. It will touch you on many levels. There is much deep wisdom being shared. ❤ (oh - and you might want to have a tissue handy - it evokes many feelings.)

It's one I want to see, and I'm hoping that it comes out here in 4dx. In part because I love the format, and in part because it's a money-saving move, I only go see movies when they're in 4dx. I think Hanks is a great actor and we always watched Mister Rogers when I was a kid. Did you know Rogers was a Presbyterian minister and that Hanks and Rogers are actually distant cousins?

Hanks as Mr. Rogers seemed like a natural to me from the time the casting was announced. Did know about Fred Rogers being a minister, did not know they were related.

How many ministers have skills at toons? It sinaskillin ... with laughter till there's tears! Few get that far into metaphorical literary development ... as the edifice is pretty solid when it comes to change, learning and movement! Cartonn wheels along ... a distant position ... bonded?

Definitely! I love Hanks - and he seems to choose his films with integrity. I've never seen him in anything I didn't like, and most seem to carry some social commentary - although in the earlier movies it was not quite as clearly articulated.

Okay, it's a made-for-Netflix TV show rather than a movie, but I am rather excited by the prospects for Sandman, based on the fantasy comic series by Neil Gaiman. And the main reason I am excited for it is that Neil himself is involved, including doing some of the writing. This past weekend, he did an interview with CBC Day 6 in which he talked at length about plans for Sandman for the first time on any media (yes, the CBC got a scoop on a British author's project).

Earlier this year, or maybe late last year? There was a documentary released about Mr Rogers titled "Won't You Be My Neighbor". It's quite beautiful and worth seeing. Pretty sure it's on HBO. I haven't seen the Tom Hanks version yet, but it's high up there on my list.

There are some firmly set hands that take on a differing Christian acceptance of neighbours ...

Recently seen: Frozen 2 (might as well out myself now - I'm close to obsessive about watching Disney movies) and Knives Out, both of which I place in the Must See category. I'll be expecting full reports form each and every one of you by Monday. Thanks for your compliance.

I will be seeing Frozen 2 with my sons - aged 18 and 20. Both are die-hard Disney lovers. My youngest mentioned Knives Out at dinner. Need to go check out the trailer.
