I watched "Overlord" over the weekend, didn't hate it. Nazi zombies, has Wyatt Russell (Kurt and Goldie's kid) and for once he's not playing an idiot. Also has Euron Greyjoy as the bad guy and seriously, dude is going to be typecast as a baddie cuz he's just creepy.
Also watched "The favourite" which I liked quite well, Olivia Colman won an Oscar for it. Queen Anne and the 2 women who battled for "power" by being her confidant/lover. It's quite funny, quite dark and I hated the ending but we did have to do a lot of history looking up because if real, damn those brits are weeeeeeird! They ARE real people and Rachel Weisz' character is Winston Churchill's grandma!
Learned many new things...did you know Winston Churchill is more american than lots of americans?????????? His mother was american and rumor has it (yes they'd need DNA to back it up) but supposedly grandma was Iriqois! Churchill and Diana Spencer were cousins (her grandpa was cousin to Winston from this same Sarah Churchill from the movie)
And did you know any time you total a car, like say the engine still works but because of repair costs the insurance company just cuts you a check rather than repair $8000 of body damage that your vehicle very likely gets on a boat to Russia, south america, china etc? This dude that hit my car works for a "Cargo" company that buys those junked cars and they export them. I knew there was a "racket" with cars that there are after market parts and the whole junkyard business, insurance companies don't take "losses" but I had no idea about what goes out the back door. I've always heard if you have the means, get a check and then do what you will with your car. get the repairs on the low low you get money and your car back. I think there is definitely a whole side of this that is not strictly legit, like if your car gets stolen in Miami, it's on a boat within 6 hours and boom out of the country you'll never see it again. Those are much more high end cars of course. I don't think we are a big enough port city to have that kind of volume leaving the country. But there were many, many many of these "cargo" companies on this road, that look just like junk yards to the naked eye but those cars get on boats and go to Argentina and Yugoslavia.
I do not know whether to be insulted or happy that my car isn't good enough for them to just buy and send to Cuba. Ha! My car did feel pretty, cuz most of them cars got real messed up grills and bumpers, my car is just old and has no hubcaps, mirror got fixed up nice and they're going to take it to their "guy" for the paint. I will point out the actual dents and scratches and the window is sticky now, doesn't wanna roll up right and if those are not fixed to my satisfaction I will demand money. ha! Real world prices for fixing I'm sure it's $6000 because my friends trunk just got fixed and it was $8000. This is the entire left side of my car, all three panels, for the value of the car, yes, it would be totalled. I would rather have my car, than a car payment at this moment so I'm gonna see what this entails. If they yanked a door off one of these other junked cars I don't care. Essentially this guy can fix anything he breaks, he would be a good guy to know if someday down the road I did something I wanted repaired/replaced and didn't wanna pay full prices for it. Not strictly legit but eye opening.
