That cowboy on the roof is about to get shot. His blood goes
flying all over that window behind him and by now everybody
knows that the blood was spit from his mouth. Great effect.

I have a "Wish List" on Amazon.com with a HUGE
amount of stuff that I would like to have. But I keep at the top
of the list five items that I really want. One of these is an MSR
fry pan. I have checked the price on the fry pan once or twice
daily for THREE YEARS.

The price has fluctuated  from between nineteen dollars to about
twenty-eight dollars. I just did not want to pay that much.

The other day, BAM! THIRTEEN dollars! Yes! Click! Mine!
I cannot wait to try it. It is an outdoor thing. It feels good.

 The handle comes off for storage. Thirteen dollars. Man. Just have
to keep looking and sometimes things go your way. Right?

About three months ago I finally decided that it was time to see
"12 Years a Slave". Perfect timing as it suddenly disappeared
from the shelves... everywhere. But today a copy appeared in
the five dollar bin at Walmart. Huzzah!
Watching this one very soon.


Later that night...
I viewed the movie. It was a difficult watch. The cruelty and inhumanity
is as bad as you would imagine. Chiwetel Ejiofor as Solomon Northup
got the job done in a great way. Worth more than five dollars.

I found yet another Little Caesars pizza.
How many of these things ARE there?

One of my favorite stores has had a rough couple
of years and is closing it's doors for good.

At times I can be resourceful.
I repaired it the next day.

I bought "Arrival" on Blu-ray. I saw this in the theater and
I really want to see it again. I have heard a few folks call
this a Sci-Fi Chick Flick, which is weird. Unfortunately
my Blu-ray machine is having difficulty playing this
Blu-ray and it looks like I won't be seeing it until
I get a new player. Oh well.

"Manchester by the Sea". This was a good one. As I wrote
here after seeing it in the theater, I thought I didn't care about
any of the characters even halfway through the movie. But
when "stuff" started happening to them, I realized I was wrong.
I did care. Good movie and I do really want to see this soon.
Hopefully Borden Cinema will be able to play this one,
unlike "Arrival."

Casey Affleck is fantastic. He talks real good.

I have a bad feeling about this.

Wednesday, February 15, 2017

Litter makes me mad enough, but when I see a grown woman
in the passenger seat of a car that is pulling out of a parking place
open her door just enough to drop this onto the ground and then
close her door again as the car drives away...
Oh man.... I know, it doesn't seem like much...

...But if EVERY person was as lazy,
selfish and self-special as she is...

I found another Little Caesars Pizza.
This is intense.

And dang-nabbit, they are closed.
I wonder if there are some carny folks in that camper playing
poker and chewing on cigars and drinking whiskey and cussing.

Happiness is when Hasbro finally releases a Black Series C3PO
figure that is a perfect match for the Black Series R2D2 that
you have. REAL happiness is when you actually FIND
one of them as they are really popular and ALWAYS sold out.

Irony is when on the same day that you finally find a
Black Series Threepio, two hours later you also find
an outstanding Elite Series Die Cast C3PO at
the Disney Store.

Life is freaky and good.

With Disney's live-action "Beauty and the Beast" movie
set to hit theaters soon, the Disney Store has it's figures
set up in a beautiful display.

Belle is my favorite Disney Princess.
Look at her beautiful dress.

And what is this? Gaston actually has a firearm?
Hooray for Disney!

I really want to see this movie when it comes out.

It's okay... Come on out little feller.

Another DVD day.
I bought "Knock Knock" with Keanu Reeves because I read
on some message boards I go to that it is a good one. I
was waiting for the price to come down. It did.

"10 Cloverfield Lane". What do I say, what DO I say? As a HUGE
fan of the original Cloverfield movie, I hated 10. HATED it.
It is a slap in the face to Clovie fans who waited EIGHT YEARS
for a sequel. I was never going to buy this movie. However (I say with my
tail between my legs), I am somewhat of a "completest", and this movie
is so bad that the price came WAY down, so I bought it to park next
to my "Cloverfield" movies.

This movie has a very very very small chance of redeeming itself a
very very very little bit if a Part Three came out and continued on
where this one left off. It just miiigggghhhht squeakily get by if it
manages to show where it ties in to the original movie.
Some folks say it DOES tie in. They are reaching. WAY reaching.
From what they show, it does not tie in. It may be similar, but similar
is all it is. Do I sound bitter? I am.

One other thing: John Goodman. I LOVE JG. But I have seen him
in too many other things and just the sight of him kept taking me
out of this movie. Somebody slightly unknown would have been
better in his role. But that is just my thing.

Once again I say...  Life, so hard.

I want more Clovie and many others do too.

Later on that night....

I guess it is no big surprise that they could not be
bothered to put any graphics on the DVD itself.

I found a new Little Caesars Pizza.
I am going to find them all. Serious.
Just kidding.

I bought "Jack Reacher: Never Go Back" and "John Wick".
Jack Reacher gets dumped on but I like it. Surrounded
by six guys who are big and tough, Jack asks them if they
"really want to do this" and they just start attacking him.
Forty five seconds later they are all on the ground and
Jack is walking away no worse for wear. Stuff like that.
I like.

John Wick... Man, this movie opens dark. Really dark.
But John is another badass and it goes from there. I liked
this one too. I want to see the sequel. 

Both to me are totally worth checking out, if you like
badass guys and action.

I love you, we all do. Save us a good spot.
We will be together again someday.
Rest well.
