    Free Solo was pretty incredible.
    If DMT didn't exist we would have to invent it. There has to be a weirdest thing. Once we have the concept weird, there has to be a weirdest thing. And DMT is simply it.

    I wish the Solo movie was free when I saw it.

    movies I saw as a kid:
    Watership Down (it had 3 sequels?!)
    Invasion of the Body Snatchers (the 1978 version)
    The Planet of the Apes sequels

    No joke - I have not had a McDonald's fruit pie since seeing Body Snatchers.

    It's free now on Netflix. I was warned that it's still overpriced.

    The 39 Steps

    Hitchcock.
    "I lingered round them, under that benign sky: watched the moths fluttering among the heath and harebells, listened to the soft wind breathing through the grass, and wondered how any one could ever imagine unquiet slumbers for the sleepers in that quiet earth."

    A few I've seen recently:

    Silence - Scorcese's overlong love song to 17th century missionaries trying to spread the word in Japan. At nearly 3 hours it was a true slog, especially since the same themes were repeated over and over - totally not worth the time.

    Unsane - found out after watching it that it was all filmed on an iPhone 7 or something (you couldn't tell). Fairly typical Law & Order SVU type stuff stretched to feature length, it was fairly entertaining but not essential.

    The Ballad of Buster Scruggs - loved the first two stories, didn't really like the third one, fourth was okay, fifth was pretty good, and sixth was just okay. Gotta say, the switching up of stories kept things fresh and overall I enjoyed it.

    Hunter Killer - whenever I visit my parents I'm always prone to seeing some brainless action movie. Honestly, I appreciate it since it keeps me grounded from the (sometimes boring) art house fare I generally gravitate towards. This one was definitely not a keeper but it did keep me entertained throughout and it was kinda nice to laugh at some of the shitty dialogue.

    Mid-90s - gotta admit, I'm right in the sweet spot of their demographic for this one. While I didn't grow up in SoCal, I've lived here for the last 20 years and either way it matches up pretty well with my timeline. Even though my group of friends wasn't nearly as cool as these ne'er do wells, it was fun to live vicariously through their foibles.

    First Man - interesting look into the first landing on the moon. Instead of making it a truly fluffy look at the two guys who made it up they decided to take a little darker look at the project. Turned out to be a pretty fascinating story although I kinda missed having it be a sterilized story

    Silence - thought it was interesting, but ultimately seemed to contradict itself with that ending. Wasn't sure what to make of it, and wasn't compelled to watch it again any time soon.

    First Man - really liked this. More of a personal examination with the moon landing as a backdrop. Don't know if it got award season nominations, but it deserved them.

    ... Then again, Bradley Cooper's Director Oscar snub was unconscionable. Wonderfully directed and composed Oscar bait movie.

    Finally saw Bohemian Rhapsody. The actors who played the band were all great! The set recreation for the Live Aid Concert was incredible! The Bluray extras were just as enjoyable as the movie itself. And of course i loved the soundtrack!

    It makes me want to see a Queen tribute band.
