My Netflix Thoughts

I recently changed my T-Mobile plan, which gets Netflix free. I was excited, because it gives me another movie and show outlet, and I love watching movies. It’s the basic plan, which means only 720p, which I can live with. Only one stream at a time, I’m OK with that. No commercials. But, would it […]

Hollywood Seems Surprised That Highbrow Films Meant To Win Oscars Don’t Do Well

There’s a couple problems with making these films. First, those highbrow films aren’t really that good. They’re no better than lots of independent films that end up going right to streaming. Although, some of those low budget indies are actually good. They’re just missing that certain something (sometimes it’s money, sometimes experience, maybe something else) […]

Soundbar: Samsung HW-Q700A 3.1.2 With Dolby Atmos

This is the fourth soundbar I’ve tried. I gave the Vizio M512a-H6, which is a 5.1.2, a try. It went back. I did not like how the voice was really centered , was distracting. Plus, the volume was problematic. Then the LG SP8YA. It went back. Same centered voice issue. Then the Philips B8405, which […]

Miscellaneous: Vizio Soundbar And Latest James Bond Movie

I’ve had the same 2.1 Samsung soundbar since about 2014, though it was time for a new one. The sound is OK, good for TV shows, OK for movies, not quite as immersive. I’d love to be able to use my Bose 301 speakers with the stereo, but, have to use a converter, change a […]

Wonder Woman 1984 Is All About Climate Crisis (scam) Or Something

Latest Excuse Why Charlie’s Angels Failed? Marketing

It couldn’t have anything to do with a film that is all Woke, features 3 characters who are simply unbelievable as action movies stars (Tom Holland of Spiderman is great, but, how would he do as an action movie star without super powers?), no sexy in sight (isn’t that what the Angels were about? Women […]

Good News: The New Godzilla Movie Is All About ‘Climate Change’

Stuff like this guarantees the movie to not do well at the box office (and it still doesn’t prove anthropogenic causation) Godzilla: King of the Monsters is an unlikely climate change movie There’s an ostensible comic relief moment in Michael Dougherty’s Godzilla: King of the Monsters that accidentally recalls weather notices in today’s headlines. “Bad […]
