4:51 What are we watching?

  • Once Upon a Time: Not loving the new season or the new cast.

13:14 Last movie seen?

  • Meyerowitz Stories: Great cast (Adam Sandler, Ben Stiller, Dustin Hoffman) and good story about siblings dealing with their aging/ill father. Worth watching, but not as amazing as you’d think given the cast. Shannon was annoyed with the abrupt ending.
  • Boo! A Madea Halloween: Shannon thought it was OK, kinda funny, but had a hard time understanding Madea. Fadra speaks black grandma. She suggests the Madea Christmas movie.
