Just watched Gallipoli, kinda a long lead up to the action.

Conan the Destroyer. Gawd, what an 80’s movie. Classically awful.

Since I've been laid up sick for past two days, been watching some virus movies: The Andromeda Strain, Outbreak and the Resident Evil series.

The Andromeda Strain in particular makes me wonder if we'll see COVID continue to mutate until it becomes relatively benign.

Watched Gettysburg and thought it was good…though it glorified RE Lee too much.
Watching Gods and Generals - good production value but it is so over the top pro traitor…

Picked up and ripped all five movies of the Phantasm series, so since I'm parked for 3-5 days awaiting Covid PCR test results figured I'd binge watch them.

I recently signed up for Peacock for the sole purpose of introducing our 2-year old son to every 80’s WWF wrestling match that’s available on the WWE Network.

Mind you, I don’t watch today’s wrestling, but dammit if it wasn’t the best in the mid-to-late 80’s when things were so much simpler.

As for movies, I watched Thor: Ragnarok last night for the first time. I’m still waiting for GOTG 3; hope it’s worth the wait.

I remember watching what my dad refers to as his "Looney Toons" on TBS back when it was a regional thing. He's been watching it ever since.

Oh, it’s broken down into regions, too. The A-Dubya’-A (AWA) is on there as well. I used to like watching those old matches on ESPN Classic. So horribly cheesy.

Since this is the third version of that movie, what makes it better than the second which was 100% true to the book?
Because it looks pretty. I am sad there are no pugs in this one. It is missing some important plot points that it sorta glazes over. But mostly it's pretty and I enjoy it.

It definitely makes me want to read the book for full exposition of the story!
