The film Captain Marvel is a fantastic movie about how one must cast off the chains of darkness and deception in order to find their true self. A must see and another great addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

I can answer almost all questions anyone might have about the Sith from Star Wars Legends, and please do PM me for the bd25 DEED(Despecalised Editions), as I have this version, though I can’t answer technical questions about them. Auntie Derry/Rumpelstiltskin.

Apollo 11 (2018) It finally made it to a theater close by and it was worth the wait. It really took me back to a time and place that are mere shadows in the depths of my memories. No pretentious narration, no talking heads. They let the actual footage and audio tell the story.

The graphics explaining the spacecraft maneuvers and trajectory bore an amazing resemblance to the early Atari vector graphic arcade game Lunar Lander. A game that drove me mad as I don’t think I ever made a successful landing. I wonder if Neil and Buzz ever played it? 😃

I have to give the filmmakers credit for sticking with footage strictly from this mission. I’m sure the temptation to use exciting shots from the later missions, (which had more film and video footage) to fill in the gaps must have been great.

With the 70mm screening of 2001 I saw last year still fresh in my mind, I was stunned there were two shots that are eerily similar. All the more mind blowing that these shots are the real thing.

Seeing guys in the crowd watching the launch wearing red RCA hats got me a bit choked up. AFAIK, my dad never had a hat like these, (the style seems very unusual for the era) and I wonder if he would have known or worked with these gentlemen on the earlier manned programs? I will probably never know.

Spotting two well known celebrities chatting with each other in the VIP crowd, (the film does not go out of it’s way to identify them) was great fun.

Mary Poppins

I hadn’t seen it since I was a kid, and I feel like that’s still true. One of the greats.

As a side note, the Blu-Ray is uncharacteristically superb for Disney. Presented with lovely film grain, matte lines, and other compositing “warts” all intact.

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri

Pretty good. Would watch again.

Loved it, loved it, loved it.

In the interest of disclosure, this is the first story I remember as a child. I was five. I vividly remember getting my Eeyore stuffed animal and I kept him close for years. Weirdly (or not), it’s who I am to this day. No one - no one- would argue that Eeyore is not the mental state of who I am 50 years later. I see the world the way he does and I always have. I wear it proudly (usually) 😉 Sometimes you recognize a kindred spirit. But I digress.

I’ve always loved the story, the book, and the film when I was a small child. I saw this film was a thing and knew I’d be watching it. I liked it much more than I suspected I would. It’s a feel good story for kids, with a few adult situations for those of us who are now grown, and it’s totally predictable. Totally predictable in a way that was fun and heart warming.

Great story, amazing CGI, and a fantastic job of the adults taking a back seat to The Hundred Acre Wood. I’ll watch it again, probably tonight, and purchase. It’s currently on Netflix.

I’m on my iPad, so no photoshopped score tonight, but if I could, I’d give it 5 out of 5 red balloons.

I don’t know. The only other one I’ve seen was the 1980s one with Willie Nelson and Johnny Cash.

Why don’t you knock it off with them negative waves? Why don’t you dig how beautiful it is out here?
And say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
