As we head into the home stretch of 2016, one might get the feeling that we’ve all done this before. You know the drill: We get a short breather at the start of December in order to prepare for the upcoming onslaught of end-of-the-year festivities. But the month just started, so let’s not think about that unholy hell just yet.
This week, the death of Cuban leader Fidel Castro made worldwide headlines. A controversial figure, his legacy set off a few debates. While there was no shortage of people willing to argue over Castro, there were also plenty of folks fed up with talking politics. Unfortunately, avoiding the topic won’t bring an end to our new national nightmare, which just seems to get worse and worse and worse. And you still have to go to work.
At least the weekend is finally here and you’ve got some time to yourself. Use it wisely and watch these movies. We guarantee none of them will engage you in conversation about Castro, work deadlines, or the looming holidays spent with relatives you can’t stand.
