Excalibur! (A nice stroll down memory lane)
Lego Movie 2
Terminator II (perhaps the best of the saga)
Cinema: The Favourite
At Home: Spectre (the week before, although I've not actually finished it, will have to finish it at some point)....Oh and bit of Hannah's Law yesterday.
"Hey guys...my door ain't workin'...maybe we better rethink this thing!"
Alita: Battle Angel IMAX 3D the other night at AMC Tyler.
In the Heat of The Night.
The Mummy and The Mummy Returns via Netflix. They still hold up pretty well, in that campy Saturday afternoon serial kind of way. Rachel Weiz still gets my motor running ... Daniel Craig is a fortunate man.
The last Mission Impossible movie - the one where Tom Cruise breaks his ankle and almost falls off a helicopter. It was awesome. Also starring: Henry Cavill's moustache.
When Dinosaurs ruled the Earth
and a review of that movie..
I love Cavegirls in fur bikinis..
Close Encounters of the Third Kind
"If evrything's ready on the dark side of the moon, play the five tones."
You know, there's no "Dark side of the moon". Every part of the moon knows an alternation of nights and days just like the Earth.
Julie Taymor's "The Tempest", "Caligula", and "Conan the Barbarian" (Schwarzenegger version). Weirdly work quite well as a triple feature.
Back To The Future II (I am still waiting for the hoverboard and the power-lacing-shoes!!!)
Was at the AMC Lufkin yesterday for a couple of movies. The second one I watched was Greta.
You know, the reference has nothing to do with the actual Moon. "The Dark side of The Moon" is what they called the base where they played music with the aliens. It's like right there in the clip.
The base itself wasn't named after the actual Moon? I don't think so. I think initially someone must have thought that the unseen (from Earth) side of the Moon was eternally in the dark, otherwise, the name makes no sense whatsoever. Like when the pope says "Urbi et Orbi", it comes from a time when people thought that the Earth was flat. It's meaningless now but he says it anyway. A lot of religious things are like that.
Religious things yes. Government functionaries, no. I'm pretty sure the only reason it was called the "The Dark side of the Moon" was because it was an operation mounted on one side of a big rock that nobody was supposed to see. Whether or not the reference was scientifically accurate was likely the furthest thing from their minds when they were planning it.
Separate names with a comma.
