I spent last week watching the shorts presented by PBS's On-Line Film Festival. There were about two dozen films...each from a few minutes to up to twenty minutes long. Some were inspiring, some were informative...most were entertaining. There were three that I really liked:
Noc Na Tanecku - about one of the last Czech dance halls in Texas.
Capsule - about two astronauts depleting the oxygen in their crashed space ship.
CatCam - about a cat with a small video camera strapped to its collar to record its life away from his family.
The films are still on the website - go watch them when you have some time - http://www.pbs.org/filmfestival/all-films/
Not too long ago, a friend and I had lunch and then went to the movies. She wanted to see Safe Haven. Julianne Hough plays a woman running from her past. She starts a new life in a small town. Josh Duhamel plays a widower with two small children who takes an interest in her. It was cute but predictable...definitely a renter.
