Les just told me that he'd heard the top 3 critically-acclaimed movies of 2014 are:

The Grand Budapest Hotel

I have read 4 adulatory reviews of Boyhood in The New Yorker, The New York Times, Rolling Stone, and The New Republic. I've seen other movies by the director Richard Linklater-and I especially liked Bernie--and I am looking forward to seeing Boyhood, despite the fact I do not like Ethan Hawke.

The Grand Budapest Hotel has a huge cast, including Tilda Swinton, Edward Norton, and Saoirse Ronan. I watch all movies with those three.

Snowpiercer is a sci-fi movie, but I'll watch it with Gerald, because amusingly, Tilda Swinton is in it too! We LOVE Tilda Swinton!

Les asked, "You think Linklater is related to Hamish and Catherine?"

Now I DO know who Hamish Linklater is but I didn't know about Catherine.

Damn him! Catherine Linklater is a character's name in Safe House! I was so glad I didn't ACT like I knew her!

It's always funny when people "act like" they know something when you know they do not! ML
