Micro movie reviews

Footnote: Israeli comedy. This was an Oscar finalist? I guess they have a strange sense of humor. I also guess they couldn't think of an ending, because it didn't have one.

The Hunger Games: A stupid, sadistic fight to the death among teenaged gladiators, with a love story thrown in. The abridgement of the novel (at least I assume that's the cause) left a couple things hanging. A sort of deus ex machina ending.

A first in my lifetime

A friend of mine owed me $12, and her payment included a $2 bill--something which I rarely come across. Then I remembered that I also have $50 and $100 bills right now, which doesn't occur very often either. I checked and found I have the usual $1, $5, $10 and $20 bills also. Thus, for the first time ever, I am in possesion of an example of all of the denominations of currency the United States now has in public circulation.
