Movies

1. Hidden Figures (January 15) -- 5 stars

What a fantastic movie, my entire theatre was engaged. I walked out and the old woman who walked out after me looked at me like 'That was amazing! If movies are ranked from 1-10 that was a 10!' Her husband chimed in to adjust the figure to a 12. They were entirely correct. Watch this film. 5 stars

2. Salaam Namaste (January 24) -- 3.5 stars

I feel like pretty much every Bollywood movie I watch I end up enjoying it but spending a good portion grouching at the hero's behaviour and this was not an exception. 3.5 stars

3. Living on One Dollar (January 25) -- 3.5 stars

Documentary charting the experience of four economics students attempting to live on an hour a day in Guatemala (the average income of the impoverished community they were researching). I quite liked it; reminded me that my income can make a much larger impact elsewhere and I really need to get around to increasing the charity portion of my budget. 3.5 stars

4. Magic Mike (January 28) -- 2 stars

Damn that was depressing. Apparently Channing Tatum can dance and act though so that's good to know. 2 stars
