  1. You have been prolific this month! :-) I see some movies on your list which I love, including Pariah, Coraline, Birdman, Malcolm X, Zodiac, and Jackie Brown. I am looking forward to checking out Better Call Saul when it comes to streaming.

  2. I am glad you love Jackie Brown too!

    Better Call Saul is off to a great start the first couple episodes are good but it really hits it's stride once it gets to episode 4.

  3. Such a great list of movies here! I only wish I could see that many in a month!
