    Used to watch the Amazing Johnathan back in the day, saw that Hulu had a documentary about him. Starts off alright, but when the director finds out there's a second documentary crew filming, the thing becomes about him trying to make the documentary, and less about the comic magician. A third documentarian who also juggles chainsaws is introduced, and a fourth is mentioned, and some of her footage is used for this documentary.

    The whole thing turned out to be a waste, to me, since it became less and less about the title subject.

    Went out to Lufkin tonight for an AMC Artisan Films double feature.

    Today was the last day to see WYGB, and it was alright, not great.

    For BbtL, I had a bad experience with a couple that arrived late and would not shut up throughout the film. I won't be going back to the theater for it, but I may watch it again when it streams for whatever bits I may have missed here & there thanks to the folks who would not shut the hell up.

    Back at my rental now, watching NBC's ER via Hulu.

    Backdraft 2. This should be the very definition of unnecessary sequel. The original movie stood on its own well enough, and I don't think anyone remembers the original well enough to crave a sequel. But some of the cast, such as William Baldwin and Donald Sutherland return. The main character this time around is the son of the fireman killed in the first one, with Baldwin playing his Uncle, now a Fire Captain. One of the main problems with this movie is that while the first one had everything happen in the front-lines, this go-around, the movie focuses more on the aftermath, with the main character being a fire investigator, investigating possible causes. Theoretically, with a good script, it could be smart and entertaining, but instead the whole premise is dragged down with a terrible script, and the entire thing ends up lacking drama. It was quite boring, I felt.

    What a jumbled mess. There are too many little bits and storylines that could've been trimmed out or more tightly wound to make the storyline more cohesive. We were also dropped into this storyline without out much of a background, either in an info dump or exposition.

    Damon's Max lacks any kind of the empathy he could've brought to the character as one of the better actors of our generation.

    It was a good idea, but poorly executed and I read the director admitted as much.
