it's already on Amazon.com: Westworld - Season 1
Thanks! Oh well, not free...yet. Amazon seems to do this a lot.
it'll never be 'free'... you're paying for prime membership, so every month you delay purchase, equates to more monies towards that item...
We get Amazon Prime for the free shipping and the two-day delivery, which pays for itself many times over. All the other benefits are not that important to us.
watchin "the man behind the gun" 1953 with randolph scott & patrice wymore...
Wonder woman on HBO.
Pleasant surprise for the first hour.
Dislike for this could only stem from not liking wonder woman or cartoons made as movies in the first place.
Not a movie most people would dislike.
It missed the expected sex scene where she falls for the lead guy - how refreshing.
"Despite its flaws, “Wonder Woman” is beautiful, kindhearted, and buoyant in ways that make me eager to see it again. Jenkins and her collaborators have done what I thought was previously impossible: created a Wonder Woman film that is inspiring, blistering, and compassionate, in ways that honor what has made this character an icon."
No. My dislike for this movie, and I have an intense dislike for this movie, was because of its wooden dialogue, because of Gadot's irritating performance, because of Chris Pine's enormously annoying performance, because the film's video game special effects prevent any emotional investment, because the filmmakers turned Wonder Woman into a Hulk-like indestructible character, because the villain lacked any menace or dramatic weight. I hated this movie. I hated this movie. And I like Wonder Woman. I like anime, I like animation.
Well maybe in the second movie she will find a blonde sidekick.
I hope it's Doutzen Kroes.
I did see a movie I was sort of on the fence about, I enjoyed it, but I like science fiction and I knew the original material. It's Predestination with Ethan Hawke, who is good in it I thought.
I'm surprised it gets such good number from RT. The plot is so convoluted. It's based on Heinlein's short story All You Zombies (it has nothing to do with zombies, it's a line about time travel). And the movie is quite faithful as an adaptation. The plot is so convoluted though, I'm surprised so many people liked the movie. It's a smaller budget thing, there are no spaceships exploding, no CGI monsters. It's story and character driven, more like The Quiet Earth or maybe Contact or Arrival.
By the way, if you missed it Doutzen Kroes was in Wonder Woman. She's only in it for like 5 seconds, but she's still the best thing in it I thought.
Victoria Secret Model Cameo in Wonder Woman
The last movie I saw in theatre is Black Panther.
Saw Wes Studi give the introduction to a montage of military films at the Oscars tonight (watching was dictated by She who must be obeyed) His comment about his service was the highlight of the night. The topic was personal, as Studi served as a soldier in the Vietnam War. “I’m proud to have served there for 12 months with Alpha Company of the 39th Infantry. Anyone else?” Studi asked, to silence.
The Oscars are too political for me. Probably too political for this forum as well.
watching "jailhouse rock" circa 1957...
edit: & then "pillow talk" , starring rock hudson, doris day & tony randall
That has a nice cast, easy to watch. I liked Tony Randall. Will Success Spoil Rock Hunter was kind of fun, zany.
