Podcast: Episode 4

Never fear fellow fiftyfifty-ers! (That is so much alliteration.) We're back with another podcast about mid-summer panic. And we talk about a few books we've read lately, plus what we think about watching movies alone. With three months to go, everyone needs to rally and finish strong! [16:59 min]

Books mentioned:
  • Fifty Shades of Grey, E. L. James
  • Trinity, Leon Uris (and the unfortunate cover)
  • Public Crime, Bill James
  • Code Name Verity, Elizabeth Wein
  • But Enough About Me, Jancee Dunn

Movies mentioned:
  • The Intouchables (2011)
  • Dark Knight Rises (2012)
  • The Descendents (2011)
"One notable difference with going with others – spouse, lover, friends, or family – is that with company there is always some DISCUSSION. First there is the pre-movie discussion followed by the post-movie discussion. Everyone is fully armed with sharply pointed opinions, judgments, theories, beliefs, criticisms, praise, hype, comparisons, which often lead to HEATED discussions and even arguments. She is totally miscast! There’s no payoff! The plot’s all over the place! By the end of the evening whatever small pleasure you may have derived from the film has been undone."
