    Just Mercy, free on Prime. Powerful true story. I see why they are free streaming it today, very relevant. I would say in the 30 years since the story took place, there has been very little progress.
    There came a time when the Old Gods died! The Brave died with the Cunning! The Noble perished locked in battle with unleashed Evil! It was the last day for them! An ancient era was passing in fiery holocaust!

    The Coneheads movie. For my money, this is a great film. Very underrated. And timely for today, since it deals directly with issues of racial and cultural identity and the struggles of those who are "different" in their society.

I like going through my blu-rays and DVDs to listen to commentaries, check out deleted scenes, BTS stuff, etc. I remember when the Iron Man blu-ray came out, my friend told me to buy it. He bought the steelbook, because he loved how it looked and felt. Even though I didn't have a blu-ray player at the time, I bought the Iron Man blu-ray...not the steelbook. When I finally got a PS3, I remember checking out the extras and I was floored by how much stuff there was. In comparison, all the extras are absolute shit ever since Disney started producing Marvel Studios movies. Absolutely atrocious. I bought the Winter Soldier and Batman '89 blu-ray steelbooks on the same day and spent 2 hours going through the Batman '89 extra content. To say that the Winter Soldier extras were subpar would be an understatement.

    With Netflix, I get a lot of the "direct to video" type movies that I used to love from places like Blockbuster or the local movie rental places. I like having Netflix, but for the full movie experience, I buy my movies.

    While I see a lot of upsides to having a Netflix account, I do see what you are saying with your fast food analogy.
    Thanks, made my day

    THE UNTOLD STORY (2019), directed by Shane Stanley, starring Barry van Dyke as a washed up actor trying to get his life back together. It's a modest little movie, but it's delightful in its knowing look at the unglamorous side of Hollywood. Van Dyke is wonderful as the older actor who used to have a big career--he exudes a certain decency that is quite touching. I hope people will give this movie a chance.

I’m a fan of Michael B. Jordan, but I think he was miscast. He was not credible for most of the film. The real Bryan Stevenson is hugely charismatic. I know MBJ was portraying him from thirty years ago but he brought no sparks.

    The one bit that did get me choked up was the real-life footage in the closing credits of the person portrayed by O’Shea Jackson Jr. being released after thirty years. That was a cathartic moment like none in the film.

    Clown Lady and DC Girl Gang. I didn't have super high expectations so I was able to enjoy the movie for want it was. It didn't have a great script and the mcguffin was kinda dumb, but cool visuals and charming actors made up for it. Mary Elizabeth Winstead as the Crossbow Killer won me over even though she didn't have a ton of screen time.

    Lovebirds on Netflix. A pleasant way to spend a Saturday night.

    Watched all the Star Wars movies. I don't know why I do this to myself as I'm not a fan, always tried to join in but could never feel love for this franchise. The good thing about this run is that I changed my mind about Bane in The Dark Knight Rises being a better villain than Darth Vader, they're pretty much the same, Bane is a Darth Vader clone.

    I always am looking for a detective-mystery movie to watch on Sunday, so I watched MOTHERLESS BROOKLYN after you mentioned it here. Quite a good movie--fun? I wouldn't say that, since I took it seriously.

    "Urban renewal" was a big thing in the 1950s and 1960s and developers convinced cities to expropriate the land where the lower classes lived. They called those lower class homes urban blight. Developers came up with all kinds of fancy arguments why people should be forced out of their houses, so the city could put through freeways and such. They did this in Vancouver--putting viaducts through Hogan's Alley which was the African-Canadian neighbourhood (where Jimi Hendrix had lived with his gramma when he was a child) and totally uprooting all the people that lived there. And they were going to put the freeway right through our neighbourhood so it would join up with the viaducts--they had already done some development to that end--yet somehow our community was able to stop it from happening before all our houses were bulldozed. Still a lot of people, whose lives had no value to the rich folks, lost their homes and ended up in ugly housing projects.

    I saw 1917 tonight. I'm sorry to say that I wasn't all that impressed. I mean it looked good but it just didn't draw me in that much. Hell, I actually fell asleep before they hit the 45 minute mark.

    Every time I hear 'Tainted Love', I think of this movie.

    I try to force my kids to watch......they only like r2d2. They elementary age btw. I'm not a fan of the new Star wars trilogy that came out recently because I felt the firatovie was a rehash and it turn me off to the rest along with Solo death.

    Vader doesn't really do anything. He's just menacing.

    Last days of American crime: It was way too long. The runtime was unnecessary and it felt tedious at some point. Not the biggest fan of that movie. A one time watch.

    Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones: The least good of that series. I really love PA but this was a bit weak.
