Three sentence movie reviews: Strange Days


Interesting 1995-era perspective about the turn of the millennium.  This was gripping and icky and very, very tense.  I didn’t notice Juliette Lewis was in it until she appeared on screen, at which time I gave a sigh of annoyance, but Ralph Fiennes and Angela Bassett were quite good.

Cost: free due to work-sponsored Netflix
Where watched: at home

I have never been to Pacific City before

After hiking, we went to find food.  We found it in Pacific City, where we did not wait 90 minutes for a table at the Pelican Brewery, but instead walked across the street to the pizza place (where they called your order number over a microphone!) and had no wait at all.

Having eaten, we headed down to put our toes in the surf.  Walking over the bluff, I gasped, because what did I spy on the beach?  Cars!  Many, many cars!

I rarely see cars on Oregon beaches and certainly not in these vast quantities.IMG_5779 IMG_5780 IMG_5781 IMG_5782 IMG_5783

Cars on the beach!  Crazy!
