Oh, there is a more than average amount of profanity, just FYI.

Only one guy? They all belong behind bars, IMO.

I watched Pride and Prejudice and Zombies today, just the thing to take my mind off things while I took a break.

Wow, very intense, and lots of twists. No clear-cut villains or heroes among the characters. Just people who are a mixtuture of both. The ending was perfect, IMO, but definitely not your typical Hollywood ending.

We saw it today Casey. Really hated the ending though. The performances were Oscar worthy to be sure. Thanks for the profanity warning although I'm no prude and have heard most everything, some words just should never be spoken. Distracting to be sure.
Very interesting movie however, and because Hollywood is actually Hollyweird, it will do quite well at the Oscars.
Glad we saw it though, and still talking about it.

I just watched a dvd, it's called, Score: A Film Music Documentary. It's about the composing of music for films. Very interesting.

Saw Blade Runner 2049 and Foreigner. One was bad and the other not good.

We watched those back to back the other night. Chucked Blade Runner after 30 minutes. Foreigner was watchable til the end.

Watched Black Panther on premier night while on board the Disney Fantasy. It was a midnight showing and the movie was *fantastic*.

Annihilation. It was different, a bit of a head scratcher, but good. Visually, very good.

Just watched Three Billboards and thought it was very good although I didn’t know what to make of the ending. Weird ending to a weird movie. And I agree, it’ll do well at the Oscars.
