Ach du Lieber! Raccoons!

Here’s some stuff that I watched this weekend, all without Beth as she was away for a lot of the time, and not interested in them anyway. There are SPOILERS for all of it. Guardians of Galaxy Volume 2 – … Continue reading

The FLDS Took My Baby Away

I understand Netflix is going to give up their DVD distribution later this year. I think we’re just about the only people who still use it, so I’m not surprised, but I don’t know the best way to watch movies … Continue reading

In Your Satin Tights, Fighting for Your Rights

I have finished watching the 1970s Wonder Woman, which looks to have been set up as a rather campy show in the vein of the 60s Batman, if perhaps not quite as silly. This is shown in the opening credits, … Continue reading

Two movies, several SPOILERS. Weird: The Al Yankovic Story – I was honestly a little nervous to watch this because I thought it might not be very good. I mean, I knew it was a parody biopic that mocked the … Continue reading

Why Don’t You Get Things Started?
