I'm not sure if this should count, but I followed along on YouTube last night when Cliff & Justin watched the 1977 Rankin/Bass animated adaptation of The Hobbit for the TORn Tuesday livestream with Cliff's commentary.

It was on TV (what isn't these days, unless it's on the Internet), but it was Frozen 2 which we never got the chance to see last fall.

I watched bits of Scorpion King, with the young Dwayne "the Rock" Johnson. It was a decent stab at a new Conan-type adventure. Was surprised to see Bernard Hill as a sort of early da Vinci character.
Impressive. Every word in that sentence was wrong.

"The Dirt" .... Netflix .... Documentary/Movie on Motley Crue. Watch it if you have Netflix. Enjoyable. Beware of nudity, drinking, drugs, and foul language. If all that is offensive to
you don't watch.

And "Sinister" .... 2012 .... Ethan Hawke .... Juliet Rylance. This was dang good. Watched on Netflix. They have the sequel streaming as well and will watch soon. Hope it's as good as the
first. Will admit to jumping out of my seat a few times. Don't watch if you don't like horror flicks.

"The Joker" .... 2019 .... Joaquin Phoenix .... Robert De Niro .... Zazie Beetz
Have been wanting to see this one since I saw the reports of its upcoming filming. More so when I found Joaquin Phoenix"s casting. Am happy to say I wasn't disappointed at all.
He more than deserved his Oscar for this movie.

"Sinister 2" .... 2015 .... James Ransone .... Shannon Sossaman .... Netflix
Truthfully, not as good as the first. Didn't make me jump or flinch as much. Still good though. Enjoyed watching.

"Tigertail" .... 2020 .... Christine Ko .... Tzi Ma ..... Joan Chen .... Lee Hong Chi .... Netflix
This was a good one. Has some subtitling in in but it isn't hard to keep up. Give it a try. ....

"The Half Of It " .... 2020 .... Lee Lewis .... Alexis Lemire .... Daniel Diemer .... Netflix
If you like teenagers finding who they are watch it. If you don't, avoid it. Didn't care for it.

Watched a few since last time . Will post just a couple of them

"Seven Seconds" ..... Netflix ..... 2018 .... Regina King .... Clair-Hope pickle jars .... Michael Mosely .... Russell Hornsby
Very good. Wasn't too sure what side Michael Mosley's characters was on at first but all in all a very well made movie. Liked it very much.

"Dragon Warrior" ...On Demand .... 2011 .... Jason David Frank .... James Russo .... Dominick Keating .... Tara Klienpeter
Not good. Poorly done film. Had to be something straight to DVD. Don't think even pre-teen would like this one. Dominick Keating played Lt. Malcom in Enterprise. I watched 'cause
Tommy was the star of this one !!!!!!! (FYI ..... the Green Ranger )

"The Eagle" ..... 1925 ..... Rudolph Valentino .... Vilma Banky
Not my favorite by Valentino but anything with him in it is "Fine by me". (Vilma Banky is Bela Lugosi's sister)

Agent Cody Banks - not as good as I remembered it was, but still entertaining. Very much a teen boy's fantasy of a spy movie, but I'm not a teen boy...

The Mikado - Friends showed me this probably ten years ago, and I knew that despite my dislike of the plot, I would eventually come back and memorize the songs. My brain decided this spring was the time for that, since I've had the music running through my head for months. It's so catchy!

This afternoon it was Sita Sings the Blues.

I can't help wondering if Rowanberry was still alive when it was made (I forgot when she died), because I wonder what she would have thought of it. It was made in 2008.

There's a Prisoner of Zenda movie, Ninui? Of course there is, why am I surprised. Is it good? I might have to track it down for myself.

Batman BeginsandThe Dark Knight- I'd seen the first several years ago, but never continued. I made it onto the second part of the trilogy this time before getting stuck again. Maybe I'll get to all three in a few years.

Melwa : There have been quite a few versions for The Prisoner of Zenda. 3 silent versions; 1913, 1915, and Ramon Navarro's in 1922. The first "talkie" was in 1932 with
Ronald Coleman. Madeline Carroll, and Douglas Fairbanks Jr. 1952's version is probably the most well known with Stewart Granger, Deborah Kerr, and James Mason. There was a comedy version
in 1979 with Peter Sellers.

And back to topic ..... "The Land That Time Forgot" ..... 1975 ..... Doug McClure ..... Susan Penhaligan

"The People That Time Forgot" ..... 1977 ..... Doug McClure ..... Patrick Wayne

Danny Glover ..... Madison Iseman
(don't think I missed any one). Good but I liked "Welcome To The Jungle" much better.

Well, Thor-n, I finally saw the movie. On Netflix, since I rarely go out to movies any longer. And am happy to say I liked it very much. Will probably watch it again.
