Arrival. On Amazon Prime now. Third time watching it, and I think I've enjoyed it more with each viewing.

Tonight I'm going to see "The Snowman." I enjoyed the book it was based on.

"Frozen"  for the 900th time. *sigh*  :(

Penance for having daughters.
Tis the penance that never ends...

I can sing the entire soundtrack on command. No man should be able to do that.

How many times have you been so commanded?

Rifftrax: Dr. Who: Daleks - Invasion Earth: 2150 A.D.

Is that a good substitute for MST3K?  I think I saw couple episodes awhile ago, I think I remember liking it.
Holy Toledo!

It seems roughly equivalent to the old MST3K episodes. It's the same voice actors + mike from the last seasons of the old show, and similar writing/humor, but they don't do the crow/tom characters and you don't actually see anything other than the movie (no intermissions or vignettes). There's a couple dozen of them available for free on Amazon prime if you have that.

Lonely Are The Brave
Kirk Douglas is excellent as always.  About a cowboy in a modern world on the run from Babylon. A captivating and unique film. Good stuff.


This Property is Condemned starring Natalie Wood. Based on the play by Tennessee Williams. Natalie Wood owned that role.  I'm not a fan of Robert Redford, but he was really good as well. I kept thinking I wouldn't like the movie, but it slowly drew me in. Natalie Wood was mesmerizing. Heartbreaking film.


Big Night
A simple character driven drama that hits all the right notes. No explosions, no GCI, just good writing and good acting. I really enjoyed this one.

I saw Thor Ragnarok with a friend yesterday. Like all these superhero movies it's profoundly empty, but tries to cover up the emptiness with funny dialogue and gags, some of which are actually pretty good... just not good enough to paper over the black hole at the movie's heart. Dear Cate Blanchett is pretty much wasted, given nothing to do but walk around looking sexy and delivering the most banal, cookie-cutter movie villain lines. All in all, I won't pretend I didn't enjoy myself but I also enjoy the occasional bag of Doritos.

Flatland: the movie (2007), I have started listening to the audiobook of the original 1884 work which I think is better so far.
