"Mother's Day" is yet another Garry Marshallholiday ensemble romantic comedy thing. It is far and away the worst of the breed, with problems in casting, character and plot. Some of it worked anyway, but a lot of it fell REALLY flat.
"Money Monster" is a really well down thriller with a strong cast and a clever plot. We enjoyed it a great deal.
For the last two weeks I have been living mostly on a meal replacement product called "Soylent" that was designed by a bored Silicon Valley programmer. It isn't bad; it looks and tastes like watered down pancake batter, and supposedly contains all necessary nutrition. It definitely deals with hunger very nicely; I have had no hunger pangs, and no food cravings at all while I have been on the stuff. It's boring, and would probably kill a foodie. But it's OK for me. I have a few more weeks of the stuff stockpiled; stay tuned.
