Thanks for all the great suggestions on movies. Many of them I have not seen (or at least don’t remember seeing), so I’ll try to check some of them out.
Readers’ Movie List
Here is what y’all had to offer:

As far as I recall, the only movies I’ve seen from this list are, The Italian Job, The Last Samurai, The Wire (various episodes from multiple seasons…Thaddeus enjoyed this), Knocked Up, Eastern Promises and The Lives of Others.
I quite enjoyed The Last Samurai, Eastern Promises and The Lives of Others (mostly the last two which were exceptional). I’m not a big fan of The Wire. The Italian Job wasn’t extraordinary in any way I could identify, Knocked Up was a great script with an amazing cast and extremely well directed and it still didn’t knock my socks off.
Here’s the better picture I promised on Monday. Not significantly better…but definitely better.
I am really digging how well this lace is coming out, especially since I really only anticipated using this as my trial first attempt at such a complex lace project.
I have made mistakes and I’ve either gone back and fixed them, or fudged them in the following round. Regardless, I think the result will be quite fine.
I may have to revise my estimate for how long it will take me to spin the Black Bunny Fiber roving into laceweight yarn.
Here’s what the last progress picture looked like to give you a comparison.
The additional amount (shown in the first picture in case you couldn’t tell) took me about 2 hours of spinning time.
Clearly, I have my work cut out for me.
