Just went 44 minutes into this garbage:



Pretentious, smug - really - unrealistic.
It had a good thing going for it in the 1st ten minutes but it just vanishes.
I'm watching Predator and throwing this monstrosity into the garbage.

For what? Arresting me for what? I'm not allowed to stand up for myself? I thought this was America! Huh? Isn't this America? I'm sorry, I thought this was America.

A very underrated sports movie. Based on a true story. And a movie that's suitable to watch with the family. Good stuff.

I saw it yesterday with my godchildren. I enjoyed it, as well. 

I was "so" in to what was happening.... that at one point I actually got goosebumps all over.... I won't give away what was happening at that moment for those who haven't seen it yet... but, as I was all in goosebumps others in the theater actually clapped and yelled out.

It was kind of fun getting lost in a bit of frivolity and nonsense for a couple of hours.
Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.
—St. Isaac of Syria

Decided to go to the cinema Thursday night to avoid the cacophonous shenanigans of the neighborhood fireworks. My plan worked out in one way, because the theatre was completely empty and I was able to kill about two and half hours. And when I got home it was after 1:00 a.m. and the fireworks buffoons had packed it in for the night.

I saw a movie that I expected to be reasonably entertaining because it received an 82% score on Rotten Tomatoes. But good grief, what a truly awful film it was. I seriously would have almost preferred putting up with the fireworks. Just a horrendously dull, inane, pretentious, and poorly acted movie that pointlessly droned on and on.

So, don't waste your money or your time on Midsommar. Horrible.
