Peregrine, Horizon, Katwe

Sixteen days since my last regular entry, but most of the odds and ends of life have been reported, anyway, so we have movies:

"Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children" is a pretty good YA targeted movie based on a very strange book of photography. It works well enough, and we enjoyed it a great deal.

"Deepwater Horizon" is, as far as I can tell, a fairly accurate dramatic presentation of the 2010 oil rig disaster. It is well done, and we enjoyed it.

"The Queen of Katwe" is a Triumph of the Underdog movie based on the real life rise of an international chess star from EXTREME poverty in Uganda. It is well done on all levels, and since these movies almost always work if you let them, and we never resist, we enjoyed it a great deal.

In other news, the 3D printer is still in its box in the breakfast nook. I will probably claim it. Probably.
