Could not really get into Army of the Dead. It was certainly watchable, but I don't get the hype surrounding it.

Army of the Dead is enjoyable. But at 2.5 hours it's a little long.

Conjuring Devil Made Me Do It is garbage.

Wild Mountain Thyme is fine.

Smaller indie movie called Kid Detective is decent, a sort of dark comedy/whodunit

My queue is only 16 deep right now. Mostly I keep it for movies and shows that aren't available for streaming (or at least aren't available on a service I'm willing to pay for).

[Edited on June 8, 2021 at 12:34 AM. Reason : 17 deep -- I added Kid Detective]

lol, I received a "Happy Anniversary A Tanzarian" email from Netflix today.

I've rented 772 DVDs since 2009 and 94 DVDs over the past 12 months.

2009-2020: 56.5 DVDs per year, 4.71 per month, 1.18 per week

2020-2021: 94.0 DVDs per year, 7.83 per month, 1.96 per week

Either Netflix or the post office has messed up my strategy. Used to be you could watch something Sunday night and if it was in the mail Monday, you'd have another Wed. Watch that one and mail Thurs another one Saturday. That would get me my 2 a week. Lately those shipping times have been off so my average is way down. Plus I've been getting movies I'm less enthused about so sometimes they sit.

One proof of my age is I won't do anything more than like 2 hrs anymore unless I'm really eager. Nobody got time for that!

We went to the cinema to see A Quiet Place Part II.

i'll tell you what's not a quiet place anymore... the movie theater. It's like everyone forgot the social norms and rules of being in a movie theater. Casual conversations, phone usage, it really ruined the experience.

Also the movie itself just felt like a 90 minute expansion to the original. You don't learn anything new about the characters or the monsters. It was kind of disappointing.

I mean can you blame people? Sure it sucks, but everybody has been watching movies at home for a year, without anybody else to worry about. They're bringing that behavior with them. I'm afraid covid has killed the movie going experience.

But shit this was a problem beforehand. Every movie I attended prior to covid, there were always assholes with their phones out, talking, kicking the back of my seat, etc. People just suck.

And you....you know you who are...you who very loudly opens the box of goobers/m&m's/other random candy boxes VERY loudly....you suck.

I haven’t seen the musical.

I thought the music was pretty one dimensional and simplistic. The story was meh (Nina’s arc is pretty ridiculous, the whole lottery ticket being the ticket to escape is a terrible “lesson”). Some good scenes mainly when they had great choreography (“$96,000”, and ”The Club”) but overall I thought it was a slog.

Watched about half of the original Parent Trap with my kiddo this evening.

Holy shit, what a fucked up premise.

Lol that's when you tell your kid that they're actually a twin and you divorced their mom soon after they were born and you both got custody of one child.

So we finished The Parent Trap.

Spoiler:

The girls got their parents back together by convincing their man-child gentlemen rancher father that their mother's motherliness didn't detract too much from her hotness. Motherly and womanly appear to be mutually exclusive in The Parent Trap universe.

For the film I was at anyways. They were also definitely having staffing issues too. Like nobody in the lobby, issues with ordering and the lights stayed on for like 5 minutes after the movies started (I volunteered to go try to find someone to turn it off.) Totally felt like a ghost ship that will eventually sink.

Which theater? The one I was at or the one where the TikTok people died.
