Haven't watched any new movies for some time. At the office, we received a lot of free movie passes for the movie Justice League. It looks like the whole company is going to go watch it after office hours this coming Friday. I'm not sure if i still want to go watch the movie. Considering i didn't like Batman v Superman or Wonder Woman. I didn't even bother finish watching those movies.
Anyone watched it already? Is it any good? I'm seriously thinking of backing out and just staying home. =P I can't really seem to get into going out with groups of people, as much as i want to try to be more social.
Doing and saying the wrong things most of the time 24/7. Being me means having to endure people not liking me.
I have not seen a movie in a movie house since 1984 when I went to see Basket Case.
The only thing that could get me into a movie house again is to see 2001: A Space Odyssey in the full screen cinerama format.
I don't know that Space Odyssey was "real" cinerama. It might have been anamorphically squeezed onto 70mm film, but still bee three times as wide as a regular movie.
But, what is, or was generally shown of this film was not the full picture.
I live in an area where there are all kinds of specialty movie houses, but I highly doubt that Space Odyssey will ever play full picture in one of those houses, and, even if it did, I probably wouldn't know about it.
I am totally out of touch with present day theatrical motion pictures, and that is fine with me.
I never liked feature films all that much any way and found sitting thru one of them boring.
I'm continuing to watch old 1960s Dark Shadows TV shows, and also the 2 Dark Shadows feature films, House of Dark Shadows and Night of Dark Shadows.
I've also watched, recently, Frankenstein Meets the Space Monster, The Creeping Terror, Men In Black, Manos, Hands of Fate, and two of the last four films that Boris Karloff was in, Snake People, and another one forge the title, think Curse was in the title, about people gathered at a house for the reading of the will of a deceased toy maker.

I watched The Shinning the other week, really great horror film. Builds up subspence amazingly as the film goes on, it's not too scary and dosen't rely on jump scares to make it scary, which I really appreciated.

Last Thursday on one of my sometimes trips to the WalMart mall, one of my friends of whom I met in the Church I used to attend in the 80s and early 90s came on the bus and sat with me; and later on he was telling me he was planning to see a movie at 4 pm. I said let me know if you'd like some company as I was in the mood to see a movie also since the last time I'd seen one was when the Emoji film came out lol. He agreed and I met him later on inside the theatre in which "The Post" was playing. It's set in the time of former president Nixon. Here is the info here:
I was intensely interested and riveted - much more than I was when I had watched other films. I enjoy anything of this nature and was gratified that the Supreme Court in the movie ruled in favour of the First Amendment (although I'm not American I agree and stand with Americans in upholding their Amendment rights, especially the first one).
My friend, Brian enjoyed the movie very much. It appears we have this type of interest in common. He's an historian and spends his weekdays at the University doing research and so on. It was great for a change to have some company as I really don't enjoy going to the theatre alone. By the way, we both discussed the fact that (so far) the Fredericton Cineplex theatre was not showing another film we mutually were interested in seeing "Darkest Hour" (about Winston Churchill) and we each were talking about and wondering why it wasn't available here in our city. Hopefully we each might be able to see it sometime in another venue (or whatever). I'll probably wait and try to see it online I hope.

There once was a girl who was very friendly, saying Hi to everyone she met. But as the years went by she either was rejected or made a lot of enemies. Consequently she became more and more reclusive to protect both herself and those she would no longer come into contact with: protecting herself from rejection and the others from her.

Ahh, I've studied of mice and men in school before, it believe it used to be part of GCSE (big tests that you take at the end of year 11 in UK). It's a good story, with a very sad ending. I did enjoy this book, however I've never seen the film.
I would like to see some of Johnny Cash's early stuff such as his appearances on several Western TV shows when he moved to Hollywood in the early 1960s.
So far, all I have seen of Johnny's earlier film work is, The Night Rider and Five Minutes to Live (aka Door To Door Maniac). Of his later work, I have seen The Road to Nashville, Murder in Coweta Countym, and the Pride of Jesse Hallum.
