    When Worlds Collide

    ★★★

    This film is oddly satisfying.
    Richard Derr plays pilot-for-hire courier, David (Dave) Randall.
    Randall is tasked to deliver vital information. He picks up the information from a South African observatory and is to deliver to Doctor Cole Hendron (Larry Keating) in New York. Unbeknownst to Randall, this is earth-shattering information. 🌎 ☄️
    Doctor Hendron's daughter, Joyce, is effectively played by Barbara Rush. 
    Joyce and Dave are immediately attracted to one another. Watching their attraction “bloom” is part of the fun.…

    Burying the Ex

    ★★★½

    I had seen previews for Burying the Ex from time to time. It was on Netflix and I decided to go for it. I went into this one with very low expectations.

    Anton Yelchin, Ashely Greene, and Alexandra Daddario were very, very good. In my opinion, Daddario helped make the viewing worthwhile. Her character seemed, I don't know, sympathetic and interesting?
    I was (surprisingly) entertained throughout.
    Okay, except for maybe five to ten minutes near the end...
    But don't despair.…
