So I just finished a movie last night that I think is better than Queen's Gambit!!! Not that the story of Beth Harmon isn't as interesting but the writers of this movie are definitely more involved with the game than the writers of Q.G. The movie is called Critical Thinking & unlike QB, you might actually learn something about chess from watching this. Plus I think the story of this movie has a greater underdog since your dealing with broke teenagers in communities where just getting an education is a miracle. Seems like there are a lot of chess lovers here so I hope you enjoy!

+ I can't relate to being in a foster home but I definitely can relate to these kids' lives.

You can rent it on Youtube or Prime (and maybe others) for $3.99. I think I'll rent it.
I heart Crystal Math.

That's shocking, they might be catching on to me ;)

I did the same thing with the movie Game Master and everyone here was able to watch it :/

What is hilarious is that YouTube will still allow me to watch, but only if I'm logged in lol. Guess YouTube doesn't mind if I want to save the movies I like?

Here is the talk at UCSB on the Queen's Gambit with Producer Scott Frank from last week. I watched it live and thought this was extraordinary. He answered the question of why the games were played so fast, among many others.

House of Games is a great movie on game psychology and mainly focuses on poker & hustling but it's a good movie nonetheless.

Not much like Queens Gambit, but I love Cobra Kai. Season 3 coming January. Here is a trailer.

Big fan of Cobra Kia! When you do ever get to see adults reprising their high school characters?

Did you guys watch Critical Thinking yet? I think it's the best chess movie / tv series of 2020.
