    I've got goosebumps.

    Misheard Lyrics (Mondegreens): There's A Bathroom On the Right

    I've heard Eric Clapton's Cocaine countless times since it's release and it was just a few days ago, I discovered that he was singing: She don't lie, She don't lie, She don't lie, I always thought it was "She don't like". In my defense, I hate the song, so I tend to tune it out or change the station whenever it's on.

    Avengers: Endgame (2019)

    I heard a rumor today that I'm not sure I believe, but I throw it out there anyway: I heard that a handful of executives have seen the movie and they said that the end left them a bit unsettled. Whether or not that's true, I have said from the beginning that I'll be bringing tissues with me because I do believe that it's going to be a tear jerker. I just got a part time job at a movie theater and told them that I would be seeing this movie at the same theater and could come in before the show, then join my family just before it starts. They asked if I could stay after instead. I said "sure", but was thinking "Oh God, I'm going to be a mess!"

    Shazam! (2019)

    I like it and would put it just under Wonder Woman on my personal list. However, I felt like the balance was a bit off in regards to the material. I think that some of the light stuff was a bit too childish for the PG-13 and up crowd and the some of the evil/sad stuff was way over the top for a movie that was obviously made to appeal to a younger audience. However, I did laugh a fair amount and thought Zachary Levi was perfect for the role. I was also impressed with the two young leads, as well as Darla. I loved her. The end credit scene would have been even cuter if this movie had come out before Aquaman.

    Interesting that no one knows how it turns out. I envisioned a final scene where they were all found their way back to each other and were all fighting them together. Curious. It was nice of Carol to compliment them by saying about the other planets "unfortunately, not all of them had you guys".

    Joker (2019)

    Damn. That looked better than I expected. Yeah, it almost looks like Heath's Joker's origin story.

    Us (2019)

    I saw this yesterday. I'm a wimp, so I was curled up in my chair watching through my eyes and was tense the whole time. But, that doesn't mean I didn't like it. I thought it was really good, especially Lupita, but like A Quiet Place, the more I thought about it later, the more I questions I had and plot holes I thought of. In regards to the son, I agree that there's no way it makes sense for him to have been switched and think that @vibeology is correct in guessing that he's just more like his mother. I do think, however, that he learned that something is off about her. At the end, that look between them said to me "I know that you know...." The other thing that doesn't make sense in reality or with the switched theory: the burns. How did the tether burn his face? I guess there being a way for that to happen underneath ranks up there with the question about the red outfits and scissors etc....

    Miscellaneous Celebrity News

    I met Alice Cooper in my church a while ago. It was just the one time, so he must have just been passing through. My husband used to work in the movie industry and did a show with Mick Jaggar and said the same thing about him. Really nice and really polite. ETA: I didn't "meet" him technically. He was sitting behind me the whole time and during the passing of the peace, I shook his hand and said the usual "Peace be with you" and he said it back. It was still really cool to know that Alice Cooper was sitting behind me and I shook his hand. Made it hard to concentrate on anything else :)

    It's goes fast. My 27 minutes went by in 10 minutes or less. I got our preferred seating, in our preferred theater at our preferred time! Good luck, everyone!

    I just got back and I'm still queued at Fandango with the green line just under half way. The AMC site is down altogether. I've been trying for a little over 4 hours now. I'll keep checking off and on all day, but I think I'll agree to go see Us with my son tonight and buy the tickets there if I can't before then. God know what will be left at that time. ETA: And now it says my wait time is 27 minutes. In 27 minutes I'll be at my doctors appointment. *sigh*

    Ah. Oh well. I was trying at 6am and I'm still getting error messages after I choose my seats. I just informed the family that I'm not sitting around all morning for this. I'm going to do my usual Tuesday stuff and try again when I get back around 10am. If we have to wait a few days, then so be it. Still frustrating, though. Edited: And now we're back to the site not loading at all.

    Now, to add insult to injury, I got the seating chart for the day and time we wanted, got the seats we wanted, selected 4 tickets, and got booted out. Argh!!

    I should have listened to my kid and set an alarm for midnight and checked to see if they were available then.

    Been trying to sign into AMC for 45 minutes and the site keeps crashing. I'm queued on Fandago--over an hour wait. So much for opening weekend :(
