Back from Boston. Not sure if its good or bad...... THEY don't know what to make of me neither. They will be back in a few weeks after they discuss it more.

oh boy.

But the Boston doctor seems to be treating this as a challenge- not a threat to their reputation.

A lot of Netflix original movies are not very good. The Trial of The Chicago 7 looks to be really good. It's the equivalent of midnight for me. I don't know if I want to start a movie that's over 2 hours. I may have to wait until later for this one.


I was right. This was a very good movie.

WTF??? My nephew went to the mall to meet some friends. One of them was supposed to be quarantined because he was exposed to someone with COVID-19. How stupid can people be? Then my mom comes over here. She tells me as she's leaving. Now I have to worry if I've been exposed through her. ☹

A local movie theater

NEW YORK THEATERS CLOSED BY GOV
IF NO NEW YORK
NO MOVIES
NO BIG SCREENS
NO POPCORN HERE
TEMPORARILY CLOSED

It's disappointing that NY and LA have so big of an impact on the movie industry it affects everyone. But I've heard reports of nearly empty theaters anyway. Some tried showing older movies but I guess that wasn't working out so well.

So Gal Gadot is going to play Cleopatra. Some are arguing that an Arab or black woman should play Cleopatra. One even as far as to refer to Gal as bland looking. Bland? As a Miss Isreal winner and a contestant for Miss Universe, I wouldn't call her bland looking. But the thing is Cleopatra was Greek. So why no complaints about a Greek actress not being picked? I know of a very beautiful Greek actress that would fit the bill.

She's also British so she has the required British accent to play any non British royal. But I think Gal Gadot is an excellent choice.
Whitewashing is a weird topic, I've noticed. Last two movies I remember there being issues was The Great Wall and Ghost in the Shell. Which ended up being a ridiculous argument. The "white guy going to save the miscellaneous cultural people of the world" has been done before, but the thing is, even the Chinese companies wanted this because they wanted a famous face to put into the move. Matt Damon is a big name and people are more likely to see the movie. I guess not technically whitewashing, but still an issue that some people had though I think they were being done.

And whitewashing an anime... Dude, all anime people look the same basically. The only thing that differentiates nationality is basically hair and clothes. And the body was just a shell and they even had the scene with the original Major who actually was Asian. So the whitewashing made no sense.

As for this movie, I'm pretty sure their number one thought was: "Who is an attractive, famous actress that people will want to pay to see?" Skin color/nationality was probably number two at best. A Japanese actress, for example, might be a little off to play Cleopatra, but most other nationalities will work well enough. One of my friends has a big crush on her. The worst thing I can say is that her boobs are a little small. But yeah, if she came up to me and asked if I wanted to go out sometime, I would never think "nah, she's kind of blah". Crazy.

I just don't have favorites.......
Hey, I'm the same as you. My "favorite" tends to change as time goes by. Had a discussion amongst friends a few weeks back talking about crushes of famous people (actresses, musicians, etc) and it was hard for me to think of one. I never had one that was like "super crush forever". They just come and go like shows and movies do. The only favorite thing that has never lost that place is my favorite song: "Smells Like Teen Spirit". No matter how I am, I listen to that, I'm pumped up. No other song quite has the same effect on me.

Still finishing up Dexter then my son insists I try Castlevania.
Speaking of Dexter, I heard the main actor is reprising his role of Dexter in a new tv series. It's still Dexter, it's not a reboot, it'll probably be listed as Season 9, but I think it's supposed to be something more than JUST Season 9. It's supposed to take place 7 years after Season 8, which is how long it has been since the show was on the air. Though Dexter went downhill imo, I still enjoyed the show and will be curious enough to watch it when it comes back on.

I liked Castlevania. Good show. And I really liked the accent of the female character. She doesn't speak like that in real though. Sad. Hah.

What does it matter if it occurred on a Wednesday, Thursday or Friday?

All kidding aside, people don't think about it. No connection of the dots.

I miss the movies. Used to go once a month to six weeks. With my legs disagreeing with me I would still go at least once every two months. No Black Widow, No Wonder Woman 1984, no Thor Love and Thunder..... buggers.

Sports meh. But movies.......

Don't have a favorite actress anymore. It's been too long for a movie to have a favorite.

Sounds good but I'm not sure how it will be based on ending of season 8. Curious. Major network or Netflix?

Castlevania is still a week or two away for me. Took time off of Dexter during season 6 due to doctors and trying to get ahead on DnD adventures.

I spilt coffee on myself. I'm not sure you're aware of this, but coffee is HOT. It was on my chest and when my shirt and seatbelts touched it it was very uncomfortable.
