Joker: Joaquin Phoenix is amazing but this is a very difficult watch. Unremittingly bleak. Took us 4 days to get through it.

The Two Popes: This is just a joy to watch. Great actors, great story, great dialog, great cinematography. Small beef... while it went in depth into Francis’ actions trying to appease the military junta that overthrew Isabel Peron, it never went into Benedict’s participation in Hit ler Youth. There are a couple of instances where he’s referred to by lay people as a N a z i but it’s never explained.

    Two thumbs up on The Two Popes.

    "...this low-rent Lear raging on his Twitter-heath has proven that the phrase malignant buffoon is not an oxymoron..."

    Going to have to watch Two Popes. We're on season 2 of Madmen. Great show, lots of seasons.
    Binged watched Alone during the week of rain here. Neat show for a while but it gets old kinda fast. Only so much excitement you can get from people barely surviving in the wilderness on their own.
