  1. I saw it on HBO Max Friday might and I loved it! So glad to have this option because I was two days post surgery, coming home unexpectedly with a catheter definitely meant no movie theater for me. This movie was just so joyous and had me smiling from ear to ear. I was moved by Abuela's death and the Alabanza song following. Such a beautiful movie, can't wait to see it again.
  2. I LOVE Oklahoma and was delighted to find it on Disney+ this weekend. I've always been baffled by Gloria Grahame as Ado Annie. I thought she was too old for the part and kept wondering what was going on with her face, she appeared so puffy. Looked it up and she was 29 when she made Oklahoma and had had so many plastic surgeries on her face, and specifically her upper lip, that it was paralyzed. Sad that she thought she was so unattractive. I was not aware she won an Oscar for the Bad and the Beautiful, maybe because her character died? Not an Oscar worthy performance in my opinion.

    Finally saw this on HBO Max and I enjoyed it. I didn't go in with any expectations, so my brain was hurting a bit by the end. I didn't realize the protaganist was Denzel Washington's son until the credits. He did a good job and can really wear a suit. I am going to have to watch again because I really couldn't figure a lot out with the plot, but was grateful that Avengers Endgame explained time travel...😄
  4. I absolutely love this mini-series in all it's ridiculous, over the top soapy glory. Just hearing the dramatic music makes me happy. I did think John Stockwell looked like a kid playing dress up with the adults but I still preferred his Billy. I don't think Kirstie Alley had a hand in the re-casting as I thought she met Parker Stevenson on set and then they got married. And as much as I love Kyle Chandler, I preferred Lewis Smith's Charles. I generally prefer everything over Book 3, I just hated it. Orry and George's friendship was awesome. Charles and Billy's friendship was similar but no
  5. I have a question that's been nagging me since the theatrical release...how will they explain Clark being alive? I know they can make something good up for Superman, because he's an alien etc. But Clark Kent had an open casket service. Lots of people were there, including his boss at the Daily Planet. Is this explained in the comics?
  6. I liked it, I didn't love it. I wouldn't say it was "darker" than the Whedon cut, the word I would use is serious. It did have moments of humor, just not the frat boy humor from the theatrical version. I found I didn't miss much at all from the theatrical version. I'm surprised Arthur's "my man" remained but it made a bit more sense in that he was the most mistrusting of Victor in the beginning but now he's come around. I liked the fleshing out of Victor and Barry and making Arthur a bit more serious. While I was glad we got to see Kiersey Clemons in the Snyder cut, that entire sequence
  7. Yes, took a while but it did resolve itself, thanks.
  8. So we had CBS All Access, but when it switched over to Paramount we had to sign in again and our user information doesn't work now. Anybody else run in to this problem?
  9. That was fun, although I'm not sure I've even seen Thor: Darkworld one time.
  10. Funny you should mention this. I remember seeing Captain America in theaters and being underwhelmed. I thought Steve was joyless and had no appreciation for what he had received from the serum. Cut to a decade later and on rewatch I just love this movie. I think it's because I know this character now and I can see CE's acting choices and his dry sense of humor/sarcasm comes through more clearly. And yes, ranks as one of my favorite origin movies.
  11. Oh, I understand. Yes, you're right. I'm going to look at that more closely when I get home, especially since their movie section changes regularly.
  12. I have CBS All Access and definitely have a watch list. It's not near the top, you have to scroll down a bit to see it.
  13. Black Box (2020) Starring Phylicia Rashad. Really interesting premise and payoff. It took me a while to figure out what was going on. Requires big suspension of belief, but if you take it as sci-fi/horror it won't be too difficult. Definitely not something you can go right to sleep on after watching.
  14. Farscape is a show you can't watch while eating dinner. DNA Mad Scientist is a great episode, tells you so much about the characters. For me PK Tech Girl is the episode where I knew I was going to stick around until the end. I hope you stick with it raven, it really is one of the best sci-fi shows I've ever seen.
  15. For me, this was the funniest episode this season. I laughed out loud so many times, Richard Gant is just comedy gold. TA's line read of Tina just about to be Tina was hilarious. Didn't see the ending coming, you just know Calvin is going to be the worst landlord ever and I can see the boys taking him to court or something. Good use of Grover.
