My father introduced me to good cinema early on in my life. His favorites included: Star Wars, 2001: A Space Odyssey, Blade Runner, Citizen Kane, Charlie Chaplin, Lawrence of Arabia.

Deb and I watched the Amazon Prime series Upload over the last couple of weeks. The premiere episode is the slowest, and its also the only one that is more than twenty-some minutes long. Subsequent episodes are funnier and have better pacing. I thought that Robbie Amell and Andy Allo had good chemistry. I liked how the future is just not about newer technology. Thirty-three years in the future, ultra-successful folks are even more insufferable and privileged, if you can believe that! Recommended.
