Watched Justice League Snyder Cut today.

Brilliant. That’s all I’ll say for now.

Wanted to watch it tonight but FOUR FREAKIN’ HOURS? I’ll wait until the weekend.

The Last Blockbuster (Netflix streaming; which is kind of twisting the knife)

A documentary on the last remaining Blockbuster Video in Bend, Oregon.

Good documentary, on the rise and fall of Blockbuster, and how this store is surviving. Every interviewee said something that I also felt, growing up with the rental stores. I was not a Blockbuster guy myself, due to limits of what movies they carried: Title Wave (later Hollywood Video) didn’t put limits on director’s cut or what Title Wave called “Bad Bad Bad Bad Cinema” (Toxic Avenger series was probably the BEST plot/cinematography in that category :shock: ).

I digress. For those old enough to remember the rental store experience, it’s nostalgia. For those young enough to have no REAL idea of what that was like, I do recommend. It is completely different nowadays with the streaming services. A small example: you might spend 60 minutes trying to select a movie that you’re going to spend 90-120 minutes watching. Return On Investment doesn’t seem right, does it? ;)
