Memoirs of a Geisha

My husband and I joined Netflix over the weekend. Our daughter has gently been suggesting we do so for a couple of years. We are slow people but very sure.
Our first movie arrived yesterday. So easy!
We watched "Memoirs of a Geisha" last night.

I have never written a movie review. I either like a movie or I do not. In a theatre I will finish my popcorn and the movie. At home if I am not interested I do not stick. I have to get up for some reason and often have failure to return. My husband is like this as well.

I stuck tight to "Memoirs of a Geisha", my husband did not.
Part of the story was shot at night so many scenes are rather darkly lit. Older eyes, like mine, have trouble with the dimly lit scenes. I was interested not only in the story but in the costumes and the scenery. I hung in even after my popcorn was finished. John Williams score with Yo-Yo Ma was worth every minute. A sound track I will want to buy.

My husband wanted me to start a log of the movies we watch.
I heard blog!
Our "Q" is filling up.
What's in your queue?
