    I tried watching that show once or twice and never made it through an entire episode. However I'm not that big into cartoons. I never really cared much for South Park and I'm fairly certain the last cartoon I watched with any regularity was Beavis and Butthead back when I was in high-school.

    We watched the BOB'S BURGERS movie last night. Decent film with a few laughs. My sons loved it, my wife and I just tolerated it. I've never really been into the TV show, so I wasn't surprised.

    Cool. I don't think I've heard anything bad about this one.

    Really enjoyed it. Probably my favorite movie that I’ve seen in the theater this year.

    I thought they did a really good job in expanding the short story, with the added characters and everything coming together at the end.

    I thought both of the teenage leads (the brother and sister) were very good, and Ethan Hawke was genuinely creepy as the Grabber.

    At a run time of 1:40 minutes, the story moved along briskly and never dragged.

    We watched LAST NIGHT IN SOHO (Last night, of course...), and while it was a tad slow in the first half, the characters were engaging, and the mystery had us hooked. Some beautiful photography and camerawork, great performances (Amazing to see Diana Rigg and Terrence Stamp!), and the end was outstanding.
    Not a movie, but I picked up a 99 cent a month deal on Discovery+, and I watched JACK OSBOURNE'S NIGHT OF TERROR: BIGFOOT. I'm a sucker for all things Bigfoot. Of course jack didn't find Bigfoot, but I like Jack, and seeing him in the woods for 90 minutes with Jason Mewes delivered some good laughs.

    Wander starring Aaron Eckhart with co-stars Tommy Lee Jones and Heather Graham. This movie likely would have been better if I was on LSD. A paranoid schizophrenic tries to track down a conspiracy going on in a small town called Wander. The movie was confusing and succeeded in making the viewer wonder what is real and not real. However this was not my cup of tea at all. There were many loose ends, open ended ideas without enough explanation, and an ending that wasn't satisfactory to me.

    2 out of 5 stars.

    The Silencing. This was a decent thriller with a short enough runtime to keep my attention. This was standard fair stuff about a small town sheriff who shares a border with an American Indian Reservation, a down and out drunk with a mission, and a killer who hunts victims in the surrounding woods.

    I will say within the first few moments of the movie there was an editing error which almost made me turn the movie off. It wasn't a big deal but made me wonder for a moment if I should continue. However I'm glad I did.

    3 out of 5 stars.

    There are lines in the movie that make me think and 100% stuck with me. I like things that can bounce around my skull for a bit and give my thoughts a tingle.

    Can't go much wrong with a James Lee Burke book!

    Invasion U.S.A.starring Chuck Norris. Wow. 1980's action movie with all of what you would expect. Great for a rainy Saturday as you idle away your time cleaning the house and occasionally looking at the TV.

    Pretty bad movie but stuff is blown up frequently enough for me to stay 50% engaged in the film.

    I'm not going to rate this. It is what it is. It's pretty bad...LOL.

    I like Damon as well. That likely had something to do with the rating as well. I expect a bit more from his movies. This one felt like it was mailed in.

    Edit: Maybe the rating was a little harsh. 1 out of 5.

    I Think We're Alone Now starring Peter Dinklage and Elle Fanning. The world has ended and one lonely man curates his small hometown and it's library until his solitary life is interrupted by a stranger.

    Not sure what to think about this one. I had some weird vibes between the two leads, felt the movie lacked something essential, and was possibly trying to portray view point(s) from a perspective that just aren't me.

    I like to judge a movie such as this by what I might remember from it or maybe what I could learn from it's subtlety. Maybe take in a small thought that I can think on for awhile and kick around in my brain.

    However in this moment I don't think there is anything in this movie that reached me in any of those ways. 2 out of 5 stars.

    I watched it and didn't turn it off but it just missed the mark in a big way. 2.5 out of 5.
    You pretty much summed up my exact feelings on this one. I enjoyed the first one quite a bit; however, this was a sequel that nobody asked for or needed.
