What are you lookin' at?! Right now...

All are welcome here, so long as they do not take offense to our particular idiom.

I've started Punisher, the new MST3k, and Big Mouth on netflix.

I'm two episodes into the Punisher. I really liked the first episode but the trailer has promoted a conspiracy/military bent to the show.
I like my Punisher out on the streets, killing gangsters. Or Moscow, rescuing children.

But, so far so good I feel. Not fully buying Shane as the Punisher, but I'll give him a solid try.

Stuck at my parents house for the holiday, I finally got around to watching some stuff. Watched Bright. Found it interesting and I would like to learn more about the lore of the world.
Watched Guardians of the Galaxy 2. Once again, probably one of the funniest Marvel movies and I am interested in seeing them in Infinity War.

Just watching The Right Stuff, an old favourite. It has held up extremely well, in my opinion. All the super whizbang special fx in the world can't compete with real footage! And talk about an ensemble cast.

I just watched that a couple weeks ago! All those great actors in their prime—it holds up extremely well.

I've just watched the final two Dave Chappelle Netflix specials. They're called "Equanimity" and "The Bird Revelation".

In "Equanimity", Dave Chappelle addresses the backlash from the transgender community in response to his earlier-in-2017 Netflix specials. "The Bird Revelation" is more intimate than the other three specials from this year.

I plan to watch all four of the 2017 Dave Chappelle specials again and to take notes on them while I do so. I'll type them up when I've finished.

Lotsa love for Mr. Chapelle.

Field of Dreams right now. I haven't seen it in at least two decades, at least.

I finally got around to seeing Thor:Ragnarok. Engrossing and fun, and surprisingly(to me, at least), quite emotionally satisfying. No moments of mentally checking my watch. I would actually place it above The Last Jedi in terms of the overall experience, to be honest. Which was a bit of a surprise to me. The Thor movies have always tried to be Lord of the Rings meets Star Wars, but have never quite managed to get it right.

This time they did. I am genuinely looking forward to Infinity War[/].

Loved Thor 3. If you have Hulu, check out Taika Waititi’s previous film, “Hunt for the Wilderpeople.” Brilliant and funny on a muuuuch smaller scale.

I am still to watch “What We Do In The Shadows” which is one of his, isn’t it? I hear good things.

Yes, it’s hysterical! Even my husband liked it and he’s very picky.

Just rewatched the brilliant The Prestige, now also rewatching Pulp Fiction, yet again.

I guess it's all about non-linear presentations of time tonight.

Just saw Black Panther. Un-fucking-believable movie. It's definitely moved up towards the top of my Marvel rankings.
