Just how much is Alice willing to lose to expose what’s really going on in this paradise?

The Batman (HBO)
Matt Reeves’ The Batman stars Robert Pattinson in the dual role of Gotham City’s vigilante detective The Batman and his alter ego, reclusive billionaire Bruce Wayne. Starring alongside Pattinson as Gotham’s famous and infamous cast of characters are Zoë Kravitz as Selina Kyle (Catwoman), Paul Dano as Edward Nashton (The Riddler), Jeffrey Wright as the GCPD’s James Gordon, John Turturro as Carmine Falcone, Peter Sarsgaard as Gotham D.A. Gil Colson, Jayme Lawson as mayoral candidate Bella Reál, Andy Serkis as Alfred, and Colin Farrell as Oswald “Oz” Cobblepot (The Penguin).
In this thrilling tale, a mysterious force knocks the moon from its orbit around Earth and sends it hurtling on a collision course with life as we know it. Starring Halle Berry, Patrick Wilson, John Bradley, Michael Peña, Charlie Plummer, Kelly Yu, and Donald Sutherland. Directed by Roland Emmerich; written by Roland Emmerich & Harald Kloser & Spenser Cohen.
If you missed this the first time it’s well worth a watch. It holds a 94% Audience Score on Rotten Tomatoes (and is Certified Fresh). The movie follows a man with untreatable short-term memory loss attempting to track down his wife’s murderer. The complicating factor is that, although he can recall details of life before his accident, he cannot remember what happened fifteen minutes ago, where he’s going, or why. It’s directed by Christopher Nolan so there is so much more to the story. This will keep you guessing!
The Truman Show (Cinemax)
Another great movie that will keep you thinking long after it ends! Jim Carrey plays Truman Burbank who has no idea that his entire life has been broadcast on TV. His truth about his reality gradually unfolds and he has to decide whether to stay the TV star he has become, or act on what he learns.
Life of Pi (Cinemax)
One of the most gorgeous and interesting movies you’ll ever see. On its surface it tells the story of Pi and his journey in a lifeboat with a Bengal tiger, but there are many layers to this one that makes it well worth watching.

With the prices of everything going up all over the place and for you to give us a treat to see HBO…I love it but I truly can’t afford it monthly. Thank you kindly for giving this treat. I’m on Social Security and it’s hard to make ends meet. I will not give up my TDS because I can’t afford going to the movies and I can’t go out to eat so having cable is my entertainment! Thank you again for giving me a week of HBO.
