The Wrong Missy was actually pretty funny. I thought it would be another total train wreck Sandler Netflix production.
I never had friends later on like the ones I had when I was twelve. Jesus, does anyone?

Been rewatching a lot of movies I haven’t seen in a long time. Watched Road Trip and Fast Times last night. Both hilarious comedies. It’s insane the talent assembled in Fast Times. A movie that was really far ahead of its time, IMO.

Checked out Greyhound too.  Short, focused, well-executed WWII movie.  

 

Gotta use my free year of Apple TV well.

Loved it.

The Lodge is a decent horror movie on Hulu too.

Doctor Sleep was a worthy follow up to The Shining. Tells it’s own story but it does incorporate things from the first book and film that carry over nicely.

Never Rarely Sometimes Always is a really good indie drama.

I watched the movie Disney pretends doesn't exist.

 

While typical old Disney cheese, it's not nearly as offensive as I was expecting it to be despite having caricatures for characters.  Seemed less offensive than Gone With The Wind.  Pretty boring overall, but not as bad as I found Mary Poppins to be.

I'm surprised they got so many people for the Scott Pilgrim table read.

Missed that.  Still a fantastic movie.  Just listened to a podcast on it last week on The Ringer.  The cast list for that movie really is a who's who of celebrities many of whom were about to become big time.

Just saw the two Zombieland movies for the first time.

They were really entertaining.

I Am Not Your Negro.

Damn, so powerful, devastating, and thought provoking.

I need to step it up and read much more Baldwin.

I Am Not Your Negro.

Damn, so powerful, devastating, and thought provoking.

I need to step it up and read much more Baldwin.

 

About a hundred years ago I had a job as the nightwatchman in a big ole brick mansion on the same grounds as Rodgers Forge Elementary...  it housed a bunch of Bd of Ed people... including whoever was in charge of libraries... who had quite the bookshelf next to his desk... so, once an hour I'd spend 15 minutes going around to umpteen key boxes and turn they key in the clock I lugged around with me... the other 45 minutes, I'd spend reading this guy's books... I was 19 and it tuned me on to lots of authors... he had all of Kurt Vonnegut's books lined up right where he'd see them whenever he turned his head to the left...  I'd never even heard of the guy back then, and I snorted all those books, one after the other...

 

Anyway, one book that blew me away was a joint effort by James Baldwin and Andrew Young... it was just a long conversation between them, talking about race in America, but boy howdy, did it open my eyes.  I have no idea what it would seem like now, but for who I was then, well, it changed me... that's when I started noticing little ways I was accidentally racist... not racist in my heart or mind, but racist in how my eyes saw and how my ears heard... my heart and mind was mostly pure, but it turned out that my eyes and ears weren't.  It was one helluva surprise, and a very humbling one, because I would've sworn on a stack of Bibles that I wasn't racist... but it turned out that my eyes and ears kinda were, completely by accident.

 

The damn thing is that I have no idea what the name of the book was.  I thought it was "A Rap on Race", but that appears to be James Baldwin and Margaret Meade (which I probably read in the same building)... so, I'm entirely at a loss as to what the name of that damn book was... so, um, sorry...

I watched The Night Comes for Us tonight. Came out on Netflix back in 2018. Holy crap what an awesome action flick. One of the most violent I’ve ever seen. I can’t wait to watch it again and again.
