Re: Last Movie Watched

The Phantom Menace, y'know, that prequel to one of those film franchise doohickies, made a few years back...

Still waiting until I can be relatively sure there are no Killer Corona Cooties on my copy of The Rise of Skywalker before I try that one one.

Re: Last Television Show Watched

Agatha Christie's Poirot, again. Again, the episode, "The Chocolate Box." And, once more, the little grey cells, they screwed me over and went to sleep.

I think I watched Southpark after I woke up.

Re: Star Wars Episode IX (SPOILERS ALLOWED)

My copy of The Rise of Skywalker is out for delivery today, 1 April--I kid you not. In a way, I'm eager to see it. I haven't seen the film yet. In another way, I'm eager to see it, just so I can be done with this particular trilogy. I'm thinking it arriving in the middle of a deadly pandemic might m...

Re: Last Television Show Watched

The Walking Dead , 10.14, "Look at the Flowers." Er, right. The flowers would probably have been a bit more interesting. Better than last week's catastrophic farewell to Michone episode, which I suspect with its longer running time and elaborate, and wasted, effects, helped to put completion of the...

Re: Last Movie Watched

The Last Vampyre, 1993, from the Granada series, The Casebook of Sherlock Holmes. A very bad attempt to turn "The Sussex Vampire," itself rather a modest entry in the Holmes Canon, into a feature length film. Not. Good.

Yeah, I've leaned more towards "modern" movies, newer stuff. Well, don't put investigating the older stuff off too long. Time is always in short supply, and there are killer bugs out there--and I am *not* talking about the mutant insects from Them! (Warner Bros., 1954, B&W, 94 minutes, and a good f...

Re: What's the last book you read?

The Robots of Dawn , by Isaac Asimov. 1983. The third of Asimov's Robot Novels, the last, if memory serves, of those with both Lije Baley and R(obot). Daneel Olivaw. I had fond memories of it before I reread it. Wow. I'm not sure why. It is a bland, plodding novel, now very dated. Its weird determi...

Re: Last Movie Watched

At some point, I've gotta dive more into these older movies. It can really pay off. And, as I recall, you've yet to see some top notch, even classics, of the '30s - '40s era, and even some of the cool SF films from the '50s. I've fairly recently watched or rewatched and can recommend The Thing from...

Re: Star Wars Episode IX (SPOILERS ALLOWED)

Won't spoil but they aren't Republic. That seems an easy inference from the X-Wing, and the direction it's pointing. I waited to see The Last Moof-Milker until it arrived on disc. I'm not sure about this one. I might go for a matinee after the crowds-- :laugh: -- die down. Then again, might not.
