    Oh dear god. All I keep thinking are Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper's "are they screwing or not" chemistry/controversy while doing Shallow at the Oscars. I can totally see H/D capitalizing on THAT.

    Sweet Home Sextuplets

    I would not only have to be sedated, had I opened a tote and found that, but I would instantly be putting the house up for sale. "Sorry, honey. Fuck the land. If snakes are getting into closed totes, I'm not living here." While I find Courtney to be a nice person, her constant freak outs and worries are making my eyes roll so far back into my head, I can read my shirt labels.

    Wasn't Hazel the one that was originally thought to be a boy (Baby C) on the original ultrasound? And now she's the boy crazy one. I have to say that when Adam walked in for the first time in glasses, Hazel's reaction that Daddy was just like her, was too precious.

    Crazy Rich Asians (2018)

    Cool, thanks! SO Alistair and Eddie are brothers, but I didn't realize that they were Auntie Alix's sons. The movie doesn't make the connection. They barely have a scene together and it's Auntie Eleanor who tells Ollie to go break up the dry humping Alistair and Kitty on the dance floor (Love Michelle Yeoh's disapproving tone and folded arms there, as well as Ollie's "As you wish," obedience). Auntie Alix is in the background. You'd think SHE would be the disapproving one. ETA: Put the three book Trilogy on my Amazon list. I still like to hold a BOOK, as opposed to downloading.

    If I was able to leave work to go to Barnes and Noble.... but, I'm kinda curious NOW. And, yes, I DO read books. I was just asking on the fly.

    BlacKkKlansman (2018)

    OMG, my favorite part, as well. Adam Driver's dead pan turn in the chair and comment, "Did I just hear you say your real name?" to JDW's facial expression and "Oh, motherfucker," when he realized his rookie mistake. I know that there is sarcasm laced throughout this movie, but I'm having a hard time with my DirecTV listing this as a COMEDY. Seriously? I also have a love-hate relationship with Spike Lee movies. I love Crooklyn, mainly for the 70's setting, music, and remembering the clothes and pop culture of my childhood matching it so well. Unfortunately, in a few too many of his movies, the "racist white asshole," tends to be a stereotypical, wife beater wearing, uneducated, heavily accented, dumb ass Guido. If my people are not being portrayed in movies as mobsters, they're being portrayed as racist morons. I was relieved that the character of the crooked cop, Landers, last name didn't end in a vowel for once. To me, this was Spike's best work. And JDW and Driver were excellent, both deserving of every nomination that they were given. It's too bad that the Oscar's snubbed Washington. He deserved a nomination. That's a Spike Lee trick. The same camera work was used in Crooklyn toward the end, when Troy and Joseph go to get Joseph's money back from the two glue sniffers on the stoop (one of which was Spike, himself). Troy is holding a bat over her head as the camera brings them toward the huffers. I just realized something. There was a Spike Lee trick that was missing from this movie. He tends to insert himself into a role, mostly minor, in a lot of his movies. This time, he did not. I'm actually glad. I think the gimmick would have distracted from the movie's message.

    Crazy Rich Asians (2018)

    Why am I so attached to this movie? It's like Comfort Food. I watch it EVERY TIME it pops up on one of the HBO channels in my DirectTV online guide. I even have it saved on my DVR. As far as the Young Family Tree, I picked up that Auntie Felicity was Astrid's mother right away, but is Auntie Alix, Oliver's mother (LOVE Ollie)! The last names in the credits don't match, so I'm thinking no. And are Alistair and Eddie brothers? Both their last names appear as Cheng.

    Little Women (2019)

    Huh, I wonder who is playing John Brooke? Is Rupert Grint available to play opposite Emma? 😉 Too gimmicky? I liked the 90's version of LW, and was a little salty about them doing another version so soon, Meryl or no Meryl. I never liked the 40's version, because I found June Allyson's Jo to be obnoxious. As far as this new adaptation, I might give it a shot. I'll just have to swallow my dislike for Laura Dern, much in the same way I did for Susan Sarandon's Marmee.

    I can't believe that the article touts Meryl as a "Dancing with the Stars champion" BEFORE Olympian. Not even "Olympic Gold Medalist, Meryl Davis," just plain "Olympian." UGH. But then again, it's People Magazine. A reality show title gets more attention than a Olympic gold in their world, I guess.

    Sweet Home Sextuplets

    THIS. Every time they call that poor, sweet little ba-bay, "Raw-Raw," I want to stick cocktail forks in my eyeballs. Courtney seems like a nice person, her terrible taste in children's names aside, but she makes me nervous. She's obsessive in a NICER way than Kate Gosselin or Danielle Busby, but she IS as tightly wound as they are (must be a multiples thing). The obsession with photos, for instance. LET THE KIDS HAVE THEIR SMASH CAKE, FOR FUCK'S SAKE, INSTEAD OF OBSESSING OVER THE PERFECT PHOTO. And let your parents keep one baby overnight once in awhile instead of acting like it's a fucking catastrophe. And stop trying to prove that you're Supermom. You have nine kids under 10 (is that how old Saylor is)? And the twins are feral. GET SOME HELP. Regarding flu shots, I work at a major University and they offer up free flu shots to all faculty, staff and students every October. We're always told that the shot is for upper respiratory flu, but it doesn't help with what most people refer to as "stomach flu," (vomiting, diarrhea, dehydration) which really isn't the flu at all.

    When Blayke was lecturing her father about NOT sleeping in tents in the back yard, she was a mini-Danielle. The first sign that the girls are picking up the way their mother talks to their father.

    Chernobyl

    All autobiographical movies and television series have to take dramatic license with the subject matter to squeeze the entire story into a set amount of hours, while still getting the story across to the viewer. If they did not, it would be a documentary....and in Chernobyl's case, VERY long, as the events that were told happened over two years (and beyond, if they wanted to continue past Legasov's suicide). This was not a documentary. Just the fact that they were speaking English was the number one hint that they took SOME dramatic license to bring this story to HBO. So the New Yorker can go fuck itself. Bring on the awards!! I think it showed the Soviet government, the KGB, the design flaws in the reactor, AND the three greedy assholes that ran the plant, all as villains. I don't think it heaped blame on one.

    Chernobyl

    Jesus-fucking-Christ. That's all I could think to say as I stared at the TV, slack jawed, as the credits rolled. Not only does Chernobyl deserve ALL the Emmy's, it deserves to steal the Game of Thrones Final Season thunder (and for that matter, Veep's Final season thunder, as well), and totally dominate at the awards. Riveting, infuriating, some of the best television I've ever watched.
