We are back with another round of Tube Watch. So what were the Great Stories family and friends watching this week? Let’s see…..
Our friend Jim watched some classic pscho on a plane-type action with Turbulence, which he quite enjoyed. Ray Liotta and Lauren Holly star in that one. He also screened Unknown, starring Liam Neeson. A truly awesome suspense flick! And knowing how much Jim appreciates older films, you had to know that there was going to be something made before yours truly had a license to drive….The Purple Rose of Cairo with Mia Farrow and Jeff Daniels (under the direction of that creepy Woody Allen).
Rob, on the other hand, did not spend so much time watching movies, but did take some time to catch up on The Walking Dead, as well as attending a Game of Thrones Season Four Episode One viewing party hosted by HBO in Boston.
Marcel took in a viewing of Catching Fire, the second Hunger Games movie, and claims that it is far and away a better movie than the first!
Chris risked life and limb by starting a new (to him) series from A&E called Bates Motel starring Vera Farmiga as Norma Bates and Freddie Highmore as the young version of the character made famous in Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho. Only one episode in, but it has him hooked for more, much to Melissa’s Chagrin. He also watched a very dull 1996 frontier adventure movie called The North Star, starring Christopher Lambert, James Caan, and Catherine McCormack, about a Native American who attempts to lay claim to a goldmine owned by an immoral land baron in Nome, Alaska in the gold rush of the 1800’s.
Melissa and Chris both took a 2012 movie called Lawless (starring Tom Hardy, Shia LaBeouf, and Guy Pearce), about backwoods moonshine runners and dirty cops during prohibition. Not a bad flick. She also caught up on more Lost Season Three episodes….who doesn’t love that show, right?
What are you watching this week?
We’ll check in again next week, but would love to hear some recommendations from you!
